Wordless Wednesday: FIERY




Typically, volcanoes evoke a sense of fear and gloom, given their propensity to damage property, inflict injury, cause death. People, typically, would flee as far away as possible.

However, Taal Volcano- purported to be the smallest in world- has the opposite effect: it attracts hundreds of tourists daily, drawn to its unique environs, a mixture of stunning vistas embraced by cool mountain breeze, unmindful of its magma chamber's on-and-off activity. Currently, an inordinate number of bed and breakfasts dot the ridge surrounding the volcano and the lake it sits on- homes away from home of city-dwellers who wish to retreat to Tagaytay's subtle urbanity.
