The deadly tourist attraction

PK REVIEW: ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐

Nature can be beautiful in many ways. But this documentary shows you a side of nature, humans are not really fond of. I was shocked that there was no scientist following the activity of this volcano. Allowing tourist to visit the tip of a volcano that can erupt at any moment is just crazy behavior to me. The eruption is clearly not something that is unexpected, it happened regularly before… It’s like a reminder to humble ourselves in front of nature and its great powers. You can only empathize with the survivors and the family of the ones who sadly passed. They are very brave to share the most frightening experience of their lives and how it has impacted them since.
