The sulphurous gasses spilling from within stain the sky red in the fading light of day.

As per usual, these are some great shots. I specifically like the cross built of telephone poles-great composition and fantastic color scheme. Well done. I check this site often to see how you're doing and it seems you are quite well! Enjoy your travels through Central America!

I love seeing where you have been and what you are up to. Did you get to El Coco Loco near Managua? My nephews are involved-one is the director and another is a founder of the whole deal. I told your Mom to give you their names and hope you can visit the hostel and do some surfing with them. Rob and Ben are great guys having fun and helping the local community.
Best wishes for a great trip, can't wait to see the next installment.
