Leah and the Volcano

Now this is certainly a photograph to show your (no doubt astonished) grandchildren!  Leah Taylor was holidaying with her family in Papua New Guinea when the Tavurvur volcano erupted.  Although the volcano is well known for the devastation it can cause in the area of Rabaul, this does not seem to concern Leah at all. Not even a little. Not one jot.

True, it isn’t every day that you get to have your picture taken with an erupting volcano in the background, so Leah makes absolutely sure that her gleeful pluck is recorded for posterity by holding her arms outstretched and acting like there is pretty much nothing going on behind her. Way to go Leah.  At your age I would have reacted altogether quite differently!
