just one question

no se como tuviste acceso al popocatepetl en el año 2002; porque actualemente no se puede subir al esta montaña, ya que en los ultimos años ha estado en alerta amarilla devido a la gran actividad que ha tenido .

Re: just one question

English or German language please since I am (unfortunately) not able to understand and speak Italian.

Thanks! Bernhard

Re: just one question

It was in Spanish and translates to--

"I don't know how you had access to Popocatepetl in the year 2002, because actually you can't climb this mountain; in the past couple of years it has been on yellow alert due to the large amount of activity."

I'm assuming that this picture was taken before 2002, at a time during which Popo was accessible.

busque--Pienso que Bernhard fue a Popo antes de que se habia puesto en alerta amarillo.

Re: just one question

Thanks for the translation! Indeed, the photo was taken at christmas time 1986 (and submitted to SP in 2002) and I went up just myself carrying a paraglider with me. Unfortunately and due to stormy winds I had to hike back. Luckily enough I climbed the next night Izthaciuhatl and did the very first paragliding flight just by myself. Both was a wonderful experience. Some days later I hiked up to Pico Orizaba as well but is was to windy again to fly. However I made it to the top of all three peaks within a week and all alone. Great memories and looong time ago. Bernhard
