After a long hard slog up the 300 steps, with more people coming up behind us and lots going down, Gaal and I finally made it to the top, where Peter and Zoe had finished their lunch. Gaal and I sat down (my first sit since leaving the ferry) and ate our lunch and had some water to drink (which we carried up). We also applied more sunscreen. Peter and Zoe walked around the rim of the volcano while we did that.
We then took lots of photos before heading down.
