Let’s begin from Oliver Beck who is falling in love for our wireless connection:
having WiFi is fantastic. Now I can send E-Mails just around corner down to reception!
I have two photos of the eruption you can post on your website. First photo shows the vents of eruptive fissure at 2800 m that are now covered with sulfur and look very beautiful.
The second shows an ephemeral vent, located several hundred meters downslope. It emits hot lava slowely like toothpaste. The fissure is not easy to reach and access is dangerous, because ice is melting and is building caves where you can break in.
Even if the vents are quiet there is always the possibility of an explosion! The ephemeral vent is nearly inaccessible, because you have to climb across a big field of rough and sharp-edged lava. So you have to be well prepared and well equipped.
Thanks mr. Beck!
About another Etna hero, Charles Riviere e Luca just left hotel few minutes ago. No, they have not been our guest, we are happy to share wireless with them, too! Charles reached the top and he saw Bocca Nuova and Nord Est craters warm, active, steaming as locomotives and with audible sound of internal explosions.
He thinks situation is close that we had in 2001 so is there reason to believe another eruption is preparing?
Even sismographs are working more than usual in last times so… should we worry? 🙂
