Lava Cauldron, Democratic Republic of the Congo

This Month in Photo of the Day: Nature and Weather Photos

Exhaling clouds of gas, a cauldron of lava boils in the mile-wide crater of Nyiragongo, an active volcano in the Congo that threatens two million people. Eruptions have blistered the region for millions of years, since the African tectonic plate began to split apart to create the Albertine Rift.

My Best Friend! Cycling for life!

It's been almost 6 months since i found my new best friend (my old one was stolen :( ...) and still haven't manage to say how pleased i am with my bike. I've been cycling for 20 years now and still loving it! Even that time for cycling is becoming less and less.
This bike is responding very well and didn't cause me any problems. The only disadvantage of this bike is its weight. It’s very heavy for a bike. Carrying it is something that makes you say...."what the....???". Especially when you come back from many hours of cycling and you have to carry it up to your apartment, damn I wish you were lighter! :p
But when the tires touch the street and you go...the feeling is great and the mechanism makes it even better! 
Cycling in the city, stop to take some pictures and keep going, go and find a friend for a coffee break and park it there, go for a small ride to "forget" sad things listening to music, are some of the few simple joys of life. 
Thank you my friend...
