Do you remember, as a kid, sleeping in your clothes all night because you were so excited to start that family road trip to Florida early the next morning? It didn’t matter that you had to get up at 4am. You were ready to spring out of bed at 3:56am! I had a similar feeling when I woke up on Friday morning. I didn’t need to be up for another hour, but I was laying there with my eyes wide open, impatiently contemplating my first glimpse of the beast…the mighty Poas Volcano! After all, it’s not every day that one gets to peer directly into the mouth of the world’s largest active volcano.
