When? April 2011
This was a 10 day singles holiday in Antigua. I took the helicopter to Montserrat for the day and marvelled at the volcanic ash and the buried villages and other buildings. There were great panoramas of Antigua, of the Caribbean and of the volcano itself. A strong smell of sulphur-it was still belching steamy wisps from the yellow fumaroles on one, cloudier side. We landed for a while. It was windy and desolate and very grey. A salutary reminder of the power of nature.
