    At dinner the night before, our waiter was also the hotel attendant and arranged the tours, and helped us get a tour reserved at 9pm. I was impressed! After a lot of back and forth, we opted for a visit to Cotopaxi, Ecuador's tallest volcano and the second most active volcano in the world.

Returning to the hotel for 5pm for the Galapagos welcome meeting, we met six of the other travellers we would be spending the next week with... all very friendly.

    ... to drop off my bags. When I got to the counter, the lady sorted out my seats and luckily for me, my luggage was checked all the way through to Easter Island. For boarding, LAN has up signs with the row numbers listed. People line up behind these signs and then they load the plane from the back to the front.
