Volcanic Thunderstorm

You might have heard of the recent massive volcanic eruption in Chile. Okay, so it’s a little bit of a departure from Mexico, but it is still Latin America so I’m staying roughly on theme! I came across some quite amazing photos though, too good not to post. Volcan Chaitén has really been spewing out a lot of the thick black stuff that volcanos spew – enough to spark off an electrical storm. What did the Incas used to make of these sort of events? I’m sure there were some human sacrifices following such a spectacle!
