... ship with my life jacket on doing a fire drill. Although it's not a fire drill on a ship. Lunch was lovely - on someone's private land. Three percent of the island's land is privately owned - the other 97 percent is preserve land. Most of the people on the islands make their living from tourism. We were supposed to go to the Charles Darwin research facility after lunch to see the five tortoises they have ...

From the top the views were amazing with constant changing colours on the water due to the volcanic minerals. We hiked down the crater to the lake, and luckily were the only ones there due to good timing. We hired a 2 man kayak and paddled across the lake, some areas of the lake were bubbling due to the volcanic activity below and stunk of sulphur, i.e. rotten eggs!!

So, on the downside I blew my entire month's taxi budget in a single day. On the upside I'm safely settled and ready to join the Carnival celebration in this beautiful mountain town. Live and learn.
