Yasur

The volcano Yasur, on Tanna, is such a spectacular volcano. It is constantly erupting with throaty belches of steam, ash and lava, sometimes in Strombolian fountains that rise above the crater rim, 250 m above the volcanic vents. It really is like watching a fireworks show as you settle in for a long afternoon and evening. I could have stayed forever, and we all got our fill of pictures and videos. It was neat, and a little intimidating, to look at all the fresh cowpie bombs scattered among your picnic items. You have to talk yourself into being a little invincible, or at least lucky.
