Well, it's Monday now and we have just completed our seven-day cruise of the Galapagos. It was an amazing experience - fun in every way! We saw so much, did so much, snorkelled almost every day (and often twice), took so many great pictures and shared it with a great group of new friends.
We are now in our hotel in the capital city of the Galapagos on the island of San Cristobal. We extended our stay in the islands by two days. What I'll do in term of the ...
... at around 230pm. I stopped at the first store i saw, drenched in sweat, and bought a large water, Gatorade and a coke. I had a headache from the heat and dehydration so when i got back to my room i jumped into a cold shower and rested for a good two hours.

... thin cornet fish and so many others. The water was so clear that one could see many metres below. Our group swam close to the rocky shore with hundreds of fish of all sorts to be seen. To a neophyte like me it was simply amazing. It seemed as though we had only been snorkelling for 10 or 15 minutes when we got the call to return to the pangas. We had been in the water for over 45 minutes!! We all returned to the Queen absolutely exhilarated.
