. . .Mt. Etna, which is really on a tear now. Of course, that's down in Sicily, but I believe it's on the same tectonic plate as Etna.
When Papa Elf and I visited Sicily in 2009, we walked up the path to the top of the crater, and peered down into the caldera, which was mostly grey rock with a faint streak of bright red-orange lava. (The same thing happened when we visited Hawaii's Mt. Kilauea the previous year.)
Let's see now, we have visited the following areas:
The UK, just before mad cow disease;
Hawaii and Sicily, before their volcanoes erupted;
New Zealand, the summer before Christchurch was devastated by earthquakes and blizzards;
Ukraine, just before Putin started making it unpleasant;
Cairo, Egypt, just before the place erupted in
China, just before Americans became persona non grata;
Mexico, just before it became unsafe to travel there.
We've decided to stop world travel before we jinx yet another country!
