Lava Explosion Show In Guatemala.

We wanted to do something different that weekend, 4 of my good friends and me, so we went camping to a volcano, it is 1 hour ride from Guatemala City, we were hanging around, it was very cold so we were drinking some hot chocolate and eating smores. At 11 pm we heard a mini explosion. It was the volcano throwing some lava, we didn't care much because it is a very common thing to see in Guatemalan active volcanos. we went to sleep, and at 5 am a huge explosion woke us up, it was the volcano throwing a lot of lava and hot stones, we started to run our way down at 6 am maybe, when we started feeling the ashes, it usually takes 1 hour to go down but it only took us 20 minutes. We were running like crazy people. Come to Guatemala.

At first we did not realize it was something dangerous, we were taking pictures and everything. Then we started to feel the ashes.
