Hot stuff

This is Philippe, who has guided, informed, entertained and scared us silly over the last four days. Sometimes several of those things at once: I had no idea, for example, that it was possible to drive for so very many seconds at 110kmh with both hands off the steering wheel without crashing. (Philippe is a great gesticulator.)

But he knows his stuff, and enjoys sharing it, which is exactly what you want in a guide. Here he's spiking our cynicism by proving that you can indeed - and in no time at all - light a fire with the heat still coming from the lava flow that swept down to the sea more than three years ago.

His trick with the chilli, though, that was just mean.
