view from the volcano
view from cliffs at the edge of town
me on the volcano.. the peak is the old vent. behind that is the active section of the volcano.
fireworks in front of a church.. they call it the "burning of the castle." it's being burned to mark the start of a 3 day walk to a saint statue in another town. some people are there with bags on there backs.
the fireworks were lit in sections.. the whole thing took about 15 minutes.
