Soufriere – Sulphur in the Air

Soufriere, the town, is right next to or actually a part of an active caldera of a volcano. It has not erupted for a couple of hundred years but it continues to hiss with a smelly sulphurous steam. We went to visit the steam vents and then to a thermal bath.

Here’s a panaroma view of the active calera area.

The moonscape of the bubbling continues to change as tropical storms change the landscape.

The small pools of water on the landscape bubble as the sulphurous air escapes. What’s left is a really stinky smell and kids saying “I’m going to die”.
