Hello from the Ecuadoran rainforest. We’re in Mashpi Lodge, a three-hour drive from Quito.
We’re thrilled to be podcasting again, and Aren and I are happy you’ve decided to join us. This is going to be fun!
Here's this week's question: What’s the sickest you’ve ever gotten on a trip? (If you listen to the first few minutes of the podcast, you’ll know why we’re asking.)
It’s hard to do the Galapagos any justice with photos. But we’ll try …
Here’s our ship, the Santa Cruz II. We had about 75 passengers on board for our eight-day adventure.
One of the best ways to see fish and coral is on the glass-bottom boat. The water is such a perfect aqua-blue.
These flamingoes came in such a riveting shade of pink, and they were not afraid of people.
This iguana jumped at me from under a rock and approached without fear. I had to move away from him to keep a safe distance.
The sunsets in the Galapagos are stunning. We will come back here someday.
Please don’t forget this week’s question: What’s the sickest you’ve ever gotten on a trip?
