Nomadic Gatherings: Chapter One: Taking Off - Ascent to Mt Aso.

Travel Writers - Writing About Travel

The rising sun was a good cure for a night spent on an undersized wooden bench.

I had arrived too late to book into overnight accommodation and no Geisha girls offered to take me home.

Wisps of cloud veiled the sun, but the fauna-covered volcanic rises tickled my senses.

There were only ten people on the train ascent and once again I was making comparisons with Switzerland; so green, so clean, and now the mountain train.

The approach to the smoking crater was even more spectacular than the mountain train arrival.

In the cable-car to the crater's edge I was once again the only foreigner on the periphery of an all-Japanese tour party.

I could have been in a lift going up the Eiffel tower.
