Always take the window seat

While flying over the Andes in Peru I happened to glance out the window and spotted what seemed at first to be dark clouds. But on second glance I realized it was an active volcano, spewing billowing clouds of smoke below us. In my rush to get my phone out to snap a photo before we passed it by I managed to notice how few people even had their window shades open. All those unlucky folks missed this glorious view that was limited to us and the birds.
