Ecuador volcano goes for it!

I went to Ecuador, Quito, and visited a market town south of there, very close to this volcano. The whole place is ringed by volcanoes! To an earthy-person, the scene is terrifying, especially when the jet lands. There is not a speck of room for an approach, so the jet spirals down, just like Baghdad! The air is crystal clear, so there you are landing in this circle surrounded by huge menacing volcanoes. Still, it's a wonderful place to visit! I can imagine how the jets have to land now!
