So, the very spot Dan and I are sitting on is the top of Mount Tongariro, a volcano in New Zealand, which we hiked back in March 2012. It erupted yesterday, sending a 2 mile plume of ash in the air, second time in 2012 (first time in Aug) since its long, peaceful slumber from last eruption in 1897 (115 years ago).

Hosteling is a new experience for us. We were predicting a bunch of smelly 20 yr olds running around and boozing it up all night. Shru being a clean freak was especially unnerved about the potential bathroom conditions that awaited her in the hostels.
