For a few months last year, Pete and I settled into Banos de Agua Santa in central Ecuador to slow down our travels and do some volunteer work. This beautiful little town is set against lush green mountains, a striking river valley, and views of waterfalls at almost every turn.

Oh, and it also happens to be at the base of a very active volcano.

One morning during our stay, Tungurahua (known locally as “Mama T”) roared to life. It was a scary and thrilling time in our travels, and we are happy to tell our exciting story.

Our latest guest post is for our friend The Professional Hobo in her enlightening “Week-In-The-Life” series. If you don’t yet read her site regularly, then you should, and especially this week to check out the intimate details of a week in our life set against a booming volcano!
