Volcanoes are the flavour of the month, so the news sites tell me. Although the flavour has left rather a bitter taste in the mouth for a lot of poor tourists who found themselves stuck in foreign lands. Lucky buggers. Does travel insurance include volcano payouts? Or are volcanoes covered by that nasty little bit of fine print, headed ‘Acts of God’?
We have a nice big active volcano sitting right on the edge of Mexico City, Popocatapetl. Next to it lies Iztaccihuatl, which is dormant, or extinct. I can’t remember which. Popo has been in a pretty much continuous state of eruption since the 90’s and has on occasion sent a cloud of ash to descend on Mexico City.
