Popocatepetl Volcano Ashes

Pano taken after the Puebla Mexico city was covered with volcano ashes.

“El Popo”, as it is commonly known, has emitted small eruptions of ash almost daily since a round of eruptive activity began in 1994.

The volcano is about 40 miles from Mexico City airport which is, in turn, a few miles east of the city centre.

Popocatepetl means “smoking mountain’” in the Aztec language.

More About North America

North America includes Mexico, the United States, Canada, and Gotham City.The region temporarily existed as a Protectorate of His Imperial Majesty Emperor Norton I, with its capital being the city of San Francisco. Sadly, this term of benevolent ebullience lasted a brief two decades and ended c. 1880.The United States is now the dominant country of North America. It arose as a nation only 225 years ago after a successful rebellion against the British government under King George III. From a distance, it appears that the eastern coastlines of North and South America fit exactly into the west coast of Africa. In fact, about 250 million years ago these continents really were all connected in one land mass that we have named Pangaea.With such a foundation in tectonic unity, there is no doubt that someday soon the people on every continent of earth will realize their fundamental similarities.
