People in Iceland are maybe very brave as they are seen in videos cooking sausages on the raw molten lava that bubbled up from Earth's core or maybe they are used to it happening every few years.
Volcano eruptions are considered dangerous and can be called deadly too but it seems the other way round for people living in Iceland who made volcano eruption a place to chill and do a bit of barbeque. Maybe because the people there are very used to it as this happens once every five years.

This volcanic eruption that occurred on March 19 is only about 40km from Iceland’s capital of Reykjavik and can be reached after a 90-minute hike from the nearest road. Before the surprise explosion, which began on Friday, March 19, the volcano had been dormant for 6000 years. About 300,000 cubic meters of lava is estimated to have flowed from the volcano since it started erupting. Loads of people started gathering at the venue, some for research, some for making a barbecue while others just to observe.
“It’s absolutely breathtaking,” said Ulvar Kari Johannsson, a 21-year-old engineer who visited the eruption. Another said, “It smells pretty bad. For me what was surprising was the colours of the orange: much, much deeper than what one would expect.”

The event caught a lot of media attention, as any major volcano eruption would. There’s something both terrifying and transfixing about an eruption of molten lava. And thanks to technology, we’ve been able to see this volcano up close and personal as recorded by cameras.
Moreover, a group of scientists studying the Geldingardalsgos volcano got right up to the lava and cooked some sausages on it. This was something quite surprising for us but maybe that's the way it is.
Some of the people even toasted the buns on the blackened heat source and roasted marshmallows and enjoyed it fully. They look pretty chill while doing so, despite being right next to, you know, lava.

They aren’t the only ones who got in on the fun. People have flocked to the volcano since its eruption. It’s the first on the Reykjanes peninsula in more than 800 years.
