Robert: Tourist busted for trying to cook breakfast on volcanic lava flow
Volcanic eruptions have long attracted tourists to Iceland to catch a glimpse of the lava flows. Not very often do they inspire someone to use the flow’s immense heat to cook breakfast, however.
A long dormant volcano on the Reykjanes Peninsula, near Iceland’s capital city of Reykjavik, recently erupted for the first time in nearly 800 years, and as expected, spectators came out in droves. The throng sent civil protection officials into action, advising dozens of people to move away from lava with one official noting he saw one man trying to cook bacon and eggs on the lava.
If you are curious to whether or not he was able to enjoy his meal, officials explain he was not able to enjoy it – as his frying pan melted.
