July 25 – Project Presentations and trip to Masaya Volcano
by Doug Schirch
The fumes were so heavy today that it was not possible to see the rock bottom of the crater.
This morning half the students gave informal 10-minute presentations on a topic they chose before leaving for their service assignments. When the work was finished, we had lunch together, celebrated some July birthdays, and then headed to the Masaya volcano for sight-seeing. During the rainy season the volcano emits a constant cloud of steam with some acrid fumes. After six weeks apart, the students had a good afternoon enjoying each others company.
