I am on top of the highest point in El Salvador!! You can see the crater lake behind me!!!
I would have jumped up for joy if not for the fact that any jumping up would be a 50-50 toss up between hurling myself down a steep four to five thousand feet of cliff side into a smoldering sulfurous water body or rolling down nearly seven thousand of mountain side bouncing off trees till I drowned in the cold lake.
Opted for a demeanor with far more gravitas.
Internally, I was gyrating between – “I can’t believe I made it” and “How the hell am I going to go down without seriously damaging my knees?”
It was an incredible sight though. And I mean every bit of it.
Took it in as long as I could.
