    Las Ninfas Hotel, Puerto Ayora, Santa Fe Isla, Galapagos, Ecuador

    I saw some rating somewhere that weren't happy with Las Ninfas because they only speak in Spanish. My response to that is uhhh...think about where you are. For the majority of the trip, everybody was fantastic. The guides were great for a majority of the time minus a few quirks here and there, of that being when they talk, they talk in spanish so fast that it is difficult to understand. I do not have a problem with the spanish but they could have spoken a bit slower because there were a lot of people from other countries there. That was my only real complaint. The good wasn't bad at all. The accommodations were worth it. The beaches, the atmosphere, the way they take care of you was really well done and thought out. I would have liked to have seen a few more things like more blue footed boobies but when they sent you off to Florena or Isabella or wherever you go, you are on a good boat with a good captain and they make sure you are safe and if you get sick they take care of you as well. It sure beats the hell out of Royal Palm which costs 300$ per night. Get to the Galapagos. You won't regret it.

    Happy April!

    This month has been super busy despite the fact that it was my first full month of summer vacation.

    I started this month with a trip to Montanita with two other American families who live in Salinas. We all took a bus together and spent the day on the beach. While we were there, I had the opportunity to try …

    ... Of course there was nothing that could be done and I think that it would probably survive if she could still catch food as the wound scarred over. Back at the boat we had a long 'briefing' about how to snorkel, and about the marine life we were likely to sea. Then into the 'panga' and into the water. The water temperature is about 22 or 23 degrees C, so very warm, and it is easy to stay in for long ...

    ... the center and our hotel was called the Blue Tower. The next morning we started on our way to Galapagos, which is when the odd turn of events really started. We arrived at the airport, waited in a long line to get our first permit to the islands and have our bags checked. Somehow mike still had the drone....apparently they are FORBIDDEN. The nice lady at the counter then said our flight was delayed until 2:30PM. It's currently 9:30AM. Horrified we are wasting ...

    ... My cap had been hanging from a water bottle sticking out of the side pocket of my back pack, loosely. So when I put my bag down the cap fell off and down into the sea, never to be seen again, now just a toy for bored sea lions! The ironic thing was that Kirsty said a few moments earlier that I should move it, so it gave her an opportunity to say I told you so!!!

    We had already decided that we needed to be on the left hand side of the boat, but we ended up on the right ...

    ... to the Panama Canal and is constructed on flat basalt rocks thrust up from the ocean bed in some earlier seismic event. Tectonically speaking, the islands are over a seismic hotspot where two suboceanic ridges intersect. The islands are the peaks of parts of these ridges and, like Hawaii, new islands are being formed while older ones have been worn down and disappeared beneath the waves. Accordingly some of DNA of their inhabitants ...
