They arrive in Reykjavik where the two procure the services of Hans Bjelke(a Danish hunter) as their guide, and travel overland to the base of the volcano. They reach the volcano in late June only to find that it has not one but three craters. </li></ul>
  2. 3. <ul><li>Rereading Saknussemm's message they understand that the passage to the centre of the Earth is through the one crater the shadow of a nearby mountain peak touches at noon. Unfortunately, this is only true for the last days of June and for the next days, with July rapidly approaching, the weather is too cloudy for any shadows. Axel thinks that will force his uncle to give up the project and return home. But on the last day, the sun  comes out and the mountain peak shows the correct crater to take </li></ul>

  17. 18. <ul><li>The mouth of the volcano was one mile wide and its inside looked like the inside of and ice-cream. The bottom was 2,000 feet down. They tied a rope around each other and began to climb down </li></ul><ul><li>When they got to the bottom and looked up and saw the opening at the top it was a perfect circle of clear blue sky </li></ul><ul><li>There were three holes in the floor of the volcano and each of them was about a hundred feet wide. </li></ul><ul><li>They didn’t know which one was the correct so they remembered Arne Saknussemm’s words. He said the sun touches the right one at the end of June and that day was June the 25th and it was very cloudy they had to wait for a sunny day </li></ul>
  18. 19. <ul><li>Axel though that his uncle left the idea and they would go back home but he was wrong </li></ul><ul><li>Hans built a small house from the large rocks he found on the floor of the volcano. He didn’t talk much but he always thought of something useful to do. There were drops of water from the ice and the snow outside ran down the wall. </li></ul><ul><li>Professor Lidenbrock found the name of ¨Arne Saknussemm¨ written on the walls and he knew that they were in the right place </li></ul><ul><li>The next day the sun came out at 1:13 pm and touched the right hole to the centre of the earth </li></ul><ul><li>Hans threw the bags down in the hole but they never heard them hit the bottom because the hole was too narrow to go down with the bags </li></ul>
  19. 20. CHAPTER 5 <ul><li>NAME : LOST IN THE TUNNELS </li></ul><ul><li>PLACE : INSIDE THE VOLCANO </li></ul><ul><li>CHARACTERS : </li></ul><ul><li>PROFESSOR OTTO LIDENBROCK </li></ul><ul><li>AXEL: PROFESSOR’S NEPHEW </li></ul><ul><li>HANS </li></ul>
  20. 21. <ul><li>They began the climb down putting their ropes on the sides of the walls and every two hundred feet they found a flat rock to stop on. </li></ul><ul><li>Hans went first, the Professor and the last one was Axel. They travelled 2,000 feet down for ten hours and they reached the bottom where there was an open space like a cave. It continued to the right and their bags were there. </li></ul><ul><li>The next morning they continued their journey down. The hole opened and looked more like a tunnel through which they could walk down. </li></ul><ul><li>They used their torches to see the walls clearly. They looked like glass of different colours. Some of it was red, some was brown, and some was yellow because or the lava </li></ul>
  21. 22. <ul><li>They used their torches to see the walls clearly. They looked like glass of different colours. Some of it was red, some was brown, and some was yellow because or the lava </li></ul><ul><li>They walked for two more days and they found other tunnels. There were tunnels everywhere, and they didn’t know which was the right one. </li></ul><ul><li>They were worried because their water finished. For this reason Axel offered to go to find a spring. There was a loud sound behind the wall next to them that sounded like the water of a river. </li></ul><ul><li>Hans took a pickaxe and made a hole in the wall and water came out onto the floor </li></ul><ul><li>The water need air abd it was could enough to drinkafter a few minutes </li></ul>
  22. 23. <ul><li>They continued the journey and Axel walked to far so he got lost. He couldn’t find the other or come back. </li></ul><ul><li>Then he fell through the air down a long tunnel. He hit his head and he faint (everything went black around him) </li></ul>
