Kamchatka, Russia

Why do some cards keep reminding me of food?

this one here looks like some chocolate cake, with some frozen yoghurt (apple probably) and striped with whipped cream over it......

well, in reality its nothing close to a cake, of course...this is one of the volcanoes of Kamchatka, in particular, this is the Maliy Semyachik volcano, and the "frozen yoghurt" is actually a hot lake formed in the crater of the volcano with its bright turquoise colour, caused by the minerals in the water.

the view is just....amazing

This card is amazing, is one of the cards in my wishlist.
Volcanos amaze me. How something so destructive can be at the same time so beautiful?!!
To see volcanos in Portugal i need to travel to the Azores Islands!
