Off to the Galapagos
Ecuador for two

No time to snore in La Rabida Hostal much upon arrival, so we were glad we had come in last evening instead of the midnight flight: The Adventure-Life escort had us up at 5am to take us to a plane to Baltra, Galapagos, via Guayquil. Magic islands. Baltra is barren, but a quick drive took us to ferries across to Santa Cruz, the a drive over the highlands and settle at Red Mangrove right next to the Darwin Institute. Rest, then a wonderful meal. No time to shop, but I did get to use my bad Spanish a bit walking around hunting cash machines and pharmacies. Oh yes! snorkeling, too!
