We left the Galapagas Islands on Monday but not before we had some final photos: the Zodiacs racing to get us one last time and the male frigate (you can just about see his red throat) soaring along with the ship.
We flew to Quayaquil where we walked down to the riverfront. A great place with so much green space in the middle of the city for people to walk, children to play and artists to sit and paint and sell their art. And the city is so orderly....wouldn't you love to have all red lights or all green lights?
Wouldn't that make the traffic flow better?
Look at how cheap things are here. Jan and I had coffee, hot chocolate, a Danish and a donut and we got change from US $8!!
Last night together for the 9 of us that went to the Galápagos. We were to have all gone out to tea, but two down with gastric and one with the flu. There have been so many sick with one thing or the other but the majority just got on with it...you heard no complaining.
Tuesday we flew to Santiago, spent the night and will fly home to Brisbane Wed.
Hope you enjoyed the blog as much as I did writing it. Next trip Sunday, Nov 9 to the USA!
