Weather

The climate is pleasant, but there is a shortage of water. Drilling for ground water is a bit risky – you might strike lava. So when the volcanoes turn the rain to acid, or the tankwater dries up, the villagers must walk a long way to collect water from bush springs. Tourists won’t have a problem, but wash in the sea or a hot spring.
