Location: Saba

We woke up at about 7 am excited for the hike, which began at 10 am. There was a lot of waves during the dingy ride, so we were already wet to arrive on the beach. During our hike we crossed a village where we ate some mangoes that we found on the side streets, delicious! It took more than three hours to reach the top of the volcano, but it was worth it. It was AMAZING (and the way we took to get there was very interesting too). At the top, we had to climb the last slippery rocks to see ONLY white clouds. The first view was very scary. We felt high. We were 3000 feet high, on top of the island Saba. The feeling is hard to describe, but it reaching the top was something you need to do in life. We wrote “Minerva 2011” on the wall of a hut. At 430, we all had lunch on shore; then we came back to the boat. We saw a helicopter, the third one in the last two days, during shower time. The day finished with some excellent brownies, and then we quickly fell asleep.
