Lascar volcano erupts

The picture below shows Lascar volcano in Chile erupting two weeks ago (from here)

Not amazing newsworthy – the eruption only vented stream and ash - except for the fact that this is only six weeks or so after people from my lab were up on the slopes of Lascar collecting samples. Not me of course – strangely, whilst my boss is too busy to lecture or mark, he can find time between all those meetings for jollies to South America. Maybe it’s the double standards that angered the volcano god…
