Baku, Azerbaijan: The mud volcanoes of Gobustan

Pleased to meet you: I am a mud volcano. As seen in Gobustan, Azerbaijan
See more on the muddy buddies here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mud_volcano
Some volcanoes are burning because of the methane that's being released.
No, we did not take a bath. The mud volcanoes are cold.
