We go down with a zip line, we arrive on a terrace, we are in a well with the rock all around us, a very friable rock, it is very unstable. We hear all the time pieces of rocks collapsing and on the other side we hear the bubbling of the volcano, the gases that rise to the surface and make you suffocate.
