Not that I'm trying to torture you (well, yes, I suppose I am )- but from Lima I flew to Guyaquil, Ecuador, signed up with a local agency for a 2-week cruise of the Galapagos Islands, flew to the islands and joined seven other foreigners on a converted 40-foot fishing boat. We ate and slept on the boat, and sailed to several of the islands where we anchored in shallow lagoons (all boats had to do that to avoid contamination of the individual islands), took a small dinghy ashore, and investigated the wildlife and all the lava flows.
Life's a beach. A black sand beach in some cases .
Remember Gardner McKay in "I sailed to Tahiti with an all girl crew"...well that's what I'm picturing so don't blow it and talk about swarthy sailors, OK?
I miss the fact I didn't travel to out of the way places before they became more developed. I would have loved to see old China, Africa and S. America before it became so chic to do so and all the "charm" was removed.
