Photographer's Note

I don’t know why but for some reason I always thought that Jules Verne was an English writer. He is supposedly the second most-translated author in the world ranking between Agatha Christie and William Shakespeare, and as it happens, he is the most translated French author… Taking that into account I wanted to use in my title the French original title of the book which came to my mind while looking at this photo: Voyage au centre de la Terre (Journey to the Center of the Earth). The tale’s central figure, a scientist, believes he can reach the centre of the Earth via an empty volcanic tube. Does he succeed? You must read the book or watch a movie.

Well, maybe this is the reason why you must stay on the bus while visiting Timanfaya National Park. They don’t want you to fall in one of the secret portals leading to the underground world. This is another photo taken from the bus while on a coach tour through the national park.
