NA CRATERA DO VULCÃO VILLLARRICA!
EN EL CRÁTER DEL VOLCÁN VILLARRICA!
IN THE CRATER OF THE VILLARRICA VOLCANO!
DANS LE CRATÈRE DU VOLCAN VILLARRICA!
NEL CRATERE DEL VULCANO VILLARRICA!

It was a PERSONAL VICTORY to reach the top of that VOLCANO! It was NOT easy, but I was pretty in shape those days (jogging for 10km almost everyday back in Brazil) and faced boldly that climbing experience (main problems: hurting feet, heels, toes, ankles, knees)!
The weather would change many times during the day! It had started bright and clear, but we faced many cloudy periods while going up! When we reached the CRATER, it was sort of cloudy, cold (but not too cold) and EXTREMELY WINDY!
We were NOT supposed to stay there LONG, but we would have had the chance to see the abyssal hole and the BOILING LAVA LAKE if the weather conditions were different... MILDER! Suddenly the direction of the wind would change and we would be choked by the poisonous gases!
Extreme act! Quite fun! Lots of fun, I mean!!!
The way down would be much easier, sliding on our own buts!!!
