Highland vs coast
What it takes to keep you from getting eaten.
Even with all these people the animals are still there. The animals here are just not that affraid of humans.
Again getting the best out of sharing with humans.
The fish market at Puerto Ayora
This sea lion tried to jump into the boat everytime the fisherman looked away.
Last daytrip. North Seymore is a tiny island, close to Santa Cruz but it is packed with animals.
Young frigate bird.
Blue Footed Boobie
Male iguana. According to the guide, then he was always under this catus.
Trying to defy gravity. This time I actually didn't fall face down in the sand : )
Usually these crabs were quite shy for a galapagos animal but not on this beach.
Taking a breath.
Fish. These were "trying" to hide on the rock.
After 8 days on santa Cruz, the yoga retreat was over and I went to Isabela. Isabela is the biggest Island in Galapagos but much of it is national park and you can't go there.
Marine Iguana. He just got out of the water and needed to re-heat.
Parent and kid.
More sea turtles.
The breeding center is only nessesary because humans almost cleared the islands from tortoises and brought in a lot of domestic animals that went wild. Now the tortoises that didn't have any competition or predators have to compete with wild goats, rat, cats and dogs.
Inca cola. It does not taste like cola at all.
Traveling back home again, I had two days in Quito on the mainland.
Hot chocolate with cheese... hmmm
Animals in the big city.
I had a 7 hours wait in Miami on the way home so I went to the beach : )
Fitting right in.
