A trip into Lanzarote’s Montañas del Fuego (Fire Mountains), or Timanfaya, towards sundown is spectacular on a huge scale. Here the effect of a bucket of cold water poured quickly into a bore hole is graphically shown. The water hardly hits the rock at the bottom before it is expelled with huge force and a very loud shoosh. Elsewhere atop this particular volcano chicken legs and sausages were being cooked to perfection in a shallow lava pit. So: plenty of hot water and a natural barbecue. Sorted!
