Sierra Negre volcano, Galapagos islands - eruption update
Eruption of Sierra Negre volcano on 25 Oct. 2005 (Photo: Jorge Penafiel / El Universo)
The eruption is continuing from a fissure inside the E part of the caldera of Sierra Negre, with lava fountains up to 200 m tall and large lava flows that have now covered about 20% of the caldera floor. Good eruption viewing possibilities are from a lookout on the caldera rim in the El Cura area.

The tours this year on Santorini are now over, too, with lots of fun and great company as well. Thanks to all participants![more]
Before we send out our formal newsletter, when the programs for 2006 are completed, a quick notice to announce that Tom will offer a new, 12-days tour / expedition to the Rift Valley including Lengai volcano in Feb. and summer 2006, Costa Rica in late March and (probably) July 2006. As well, Tobias (who is right now touring in the Saronic Gulf) awaits with a new, exciting program on Milos, a wonderful, volcanic island in Greece! Other new or recently developped programs include Nisyros (Greece) and the Eifel region in Germany (details will come soon).
Greetings from Athens! Tom
