Our guide lit some palm fronds on fire and set them by a steam vent. After about 10 seconds, smoke started pouring from the vent. The guide said the volcano could "sense the flame" and would "breathe" with it. When the fire went out, the smoke stopped.

Lots of strange things in the Solis.
That sounds great. It will be a definite must do when I'm there. There are indeed a lot of strange things in the Sollies. The amount of UFO sitings and tales of the 7' Giants living in the jungle. The list goes on...a truly amazing place. No wonder it calls me back there

If you can dream it you can live it
