One of the great things about being a tourist in the developing world is what they let you do, that you would never be allowed to do at home. Case in point, here I am (following the lead of a gregarious Chilean) jumping through a geyser.

And we were much warmed by steaming hot pools that, at 37.5 degrees, were about forty degrees warmer than the spectacular surrounding landscape. Somewhere beneath the foreground steam in the picture below, Fiona is bathing.
