PC #193: Karymsky Volcano, Russia

OMG, what a great sight to behold! The Karymsky volcano is situated on the Kamchatka Peninsula and is part of UNESCO, according to my friend Alina.

It is the most active volcano of Kamchatka’s eastern volcanic zone, a symmetrical stratovolcano constructed within a 5-km- wide caldera that formed during the early Holocene. Much of the cone is mantled by lava flows less than 200 years old. -Wikipedia

Karymsky was named after the Karyms, an ethnic group in Russia. It’s really amazing how this world was designed, don’t you think?

By the way, my friend said they’ve just experienced the first warm day when she wrote this card. 10 degrees Celsius. Haha, I wonder what would happen to me if ever I’ll wake up and find myself in Russia. It’s freezing cold! Summer in the Philippines is terribly HOT!!! 25-30 degrees Celsius.

Thanks Alina! And advance Happy Birthday to you. 🙂
