My wife is wonderful. She is the love of my life, the source of much of my joy and the reason why I have smile lines on my face as a 33 year old. Her one fault is that she may tell a joke or story one too many times. For example, whenever she hears the words "it's getting hot in here," or something along those lines, she will normally burst into a rendition of Nelly's 2002 hit.

Lately, there has been a lot of activity along the fault lines and under the world's vents that emit the steam and gases from our earth's core here in Nicaragua. We have been told that the large fault lines found in Lake Managua are moving. Volcano Masaya has been opening and closing to visitors due to regular seismic activity.  The one cone we have left, Momotombo, erupted for the first time in 100 years, emitting large bursts of ash, dust, rock sulfur and lava into the atmosphere. Volcan Telica, which we were hoping to hike, San Cristobal and Cerro Negro have all had seismic activity this year. It is indeed, getting hot in here, take it away Cassie!

Check out this amazing video

Volcan Masaya opened again last month and it is incredible to witness the lava from the top of the crater, though I am not so sure we should be visiting with all this hot activity!
