Top of the world, Ma!


Not wanting to compete with the Collector’s ‘The World is My Office,’ of course, but even on top of a volcano one can check one’s emails.

This is Haleakala, the volcano on the East of Maui. Haleakala hasn’t erupted since 1790. (Kilauea on neighbouring Big Island has been in a state of eruption for twenty years, and you can see the lava running into the ocean.) The summit of Haleakala is just over 10,000 feet above sea level, but if it weren’t for the other 20,000 feet being submerged this volcano would be taller than Mount Everest.
