If you like playing in the mud, then this might be right up your alley. Remember though, this isn't your typical mud hole. This place could get really nasty, really fast! This is almost as scary as seeing the ex in the morning without her make up on!

Mud Volcanoes are basically formed when underground mud deposits are forced to the surface, expelling gasses and muddy liquid mixtures. Of the 700 known mud volcanoes around the world, over 400 can be found in Azerbaijan, along the countries Caspian coastline. All the mud volcanoes are fed by a giant underground mud lake. 86% of all the gas released by the pits is methane, which caused quite a stir in 2001, when one of the pits started spewing fire up to 15m into the air. It is estimated that every mud volcano should have at least one large eruption every 20 years, and for the rest of the time they create nutritional mud baths, to which tourists flock.
I don't know about you, but I have never seen the point of taking a "mud bath!" Kinda seems to defeat the purpose, ya know?
Coffee on the patio this morning. We can have some apple pie with our coffee and watch the hummingbirds feed!
