Consuelo considers herself lucky. Her 'bodeguita' in Tacande near the volcano on the Spanish Canary Island of La Palma is one of the few properties that managed to escape the lava from last year’s three-month long eruption, but not the ash. There's more black powder than she could ever clean up, no matter how hard she tries – which is why the volunteers have been brought in.
