Team USA visited a live volcano today on their first day off since arriving in Guatemala. On the way to the live volcano, Team USA drove through what is known as "Limonada Shanty" and to the boys, it was an eye-opening experience. While on site, the volcano erupted causing a low-grade lava flow and was certainly an ominous site to see. Team USA took some time out for photo opportunities in front of the live volcano as well. After their long walk back from the volcano and equally long drive back to their hotel, we spoke with Christopher briefly tonight. They retreated back to their respective rooms and comfortable beds to rest from a full day of activities.

Tomorrow, they will face El Salvador in Game 4 which will begin at 3 p.m. CST. El Salvador mirrors Team USA's record 3-0 and the winner of this game will determine the first place team in "pool play." A special guest will be in attendance at tomorrow night's game: the acting U.S. Ambassador to Guatemala.

On their way to see a live volcano, Team USA drove through LImonada Shanty. Team USA had many photo opportunities like this one on Pacaya in front of "Fuego" (volcano). While scaling Pacaya, Team USA witnessed lava flowing from "Fuego" (volcano). Team USA hiked back from visiting "Fuego," a live volcano on Pecaya.
