Ecuador Erupts!!!
After only three months in Quito, we experienced our first volcanic eruption as el
Reventador erupted and ash blew into Quito from 60 miles away. It took almost six months to clean
 it all up as ash doesn't melt away like snow, but becomes like clay and paste, clogging everything it gets into.

It looks like it had a little too much to eat for dinner last night!

And you thought only nuclear bombs did the mushroom cloud thing!

How would you like this for your job, checking out errupting volcanoes?

The ash blew around the city for months, making daily life very dusty and dirty!
