Been there, done that

Nearly a year after our journey with the Arcadia University expedition to Africa, another expedition is entering the Gran Caldera de Luba on Bioko Island.

A swashbuckling Spanish professor named Ignacio Martin is leading an expedition into the volcano crater in Equatorial Guinea. He is also filing a blog, just like we did last year.

Here's the most curious part: The professor claims he is leading the first expedition into the caldera. His employer, the Polytechnic University of Madrid, issued a press release saying the professor is going where no man has ever gone before. Even El Pais, the great national Spanish newspaper, swallowed the audacious story unchallenged.

The professor has been getting a lot of heat on his blog (it's in Spanish).
