Furnas Hot Springs

Azores - July 10 2021
While in The Azores, giving a talk at the Global Exploration Summit, our group from The Explorers CLub visited the Furnas Hot Springs for lunch. These volcanic islands are still active and they even use the heat from these hot springs for cooking. Our lunch was cooked in the ground by volcanic heat.
