The only real reminder of previous inhabitants is the 'post office’ which is a barrel that was erected in 1800 and frozen to death, and people traditionally place a postcard in the barrel and take one to deliver
After exploring quite a dull volcanic lava cave, we go for our last snorkel in the 'Devil’s Crown’ or as Alberto described it "It’s scary, it’s nice…" We saw a few more turtles and sharks and frankly the most fish I’ve ever seen in one place short of the Tokyo fish markets. Incredible. The ocean was chockers with them. With my stomach rumbling, we had to finish up our tour and set sail for Santa Cruz and home.
I have to say that the Galapagos was everything I imagined it would be. Yes, it cost the earth (hence me cutting my trip short by two months) and no, I didn’t find any unicorns. At one point I did ask someone if they had any nice photos of leprechauns when I meant to say iguanas but that’s cabin fever for you. I can’t recommend the place highly enough and my ship the Darwin was brilliant. Ahh, such a great experience.
