"Si les hommes ne dansaient pas sur des volcans, je me demande où et quand ils danseraient; l'important est de bien savoir qu'on a le volcan sous les pieds afin de goûter son vrai plaisir d'homme libre."

A whole year in Antartic

If you don't like volcanoes, perhaps you prefer the coldness of Antarctic. Go to "Dumont d'Urville", the french research station in Antartic where I have spent a whole year in 1983.
