Lanzarote – the isle of volcanoes

30/09/21

Attempts to rent a one- or two-wheeled vehicle have failed.  However, I managed to purchase a trip to the nature park online.  Our guide is Czech, Radmila, a girl who speaks many languages fluently.  For eight hours she did not stop speaking English, German and Spanish, and of course she spoke Polish with us!  It really was amazing! 

The history of this island was also amazing, completely destroyed in the 18th century by a series of six volcanic eruptions that lasted for six years and turned everything into a Martian landscape.  Years later, the biological life slowly began to return, and after a while the inhabitants appeared again.  The volcanic island, as I call it, originally agricultural, now lives mainly from tourism, but recently the wine industry has become a major sector of the local economy.  It’s amazing that something can grow out of these molten rocks.
