#44 - Taal Volcano
Annette sent me this card with a little bump in the middle of the water. It looks like a small hill but in fact, it's Taal Volcano in the Philippines. It's known as the smallest volcano in the world, it's height coming in at 400 m/1312 feet.
To give you some idea of how small it is, the tallest tower, the Burj Dubai, measures 818 m.
But don't let it's size fool you. Although unactive since 1977, the volcano is estimated to be responsible for the deaths of 5000 - 6000 people.
