I still remember that August, 02, 2008 I climbed up the volcano. We were two teams and one of my team mates, Pascal 60years old,was single and hopes to be called grandfather without getting married (funny). We start the volcano tracking at 8h30am. Pascal was rushing and was the first to reach the top in […]
