I took this photo on a hike that my 'Uncle' Fabio was leading a fellow PCV and me on. The hike to the volcano was much longer than I understood and going up the volcano was like walking on a beach, sandy with no good footing. We didn't have nearly enough supplies. I couldn't make it to the summit or crater opening at the top. The hike back to my town was three times as long as the morning hike. I was actually pretty sick from dehydration for a few days following the trip but I never once regretted it. I'd dehydrate myself a hundred times over for my Nica family!
