Guinea Pigs and Clowns in San Andres, Ecuador

San Andres was the town I could never remember.  I knew I liked it, but I didn't know what it was called.  I didn't, and still don't, know what most of the places we stopped in Ecuador were called.  Something to work on in the future I suppose.  Thankfully, back when I saved my pictures,…

My favorite critters from the Galapagos

Maybe the title is misleading.  It's really only one critter and spoiler alert: it's Sally Lightfoot Crabs.  They're pretty adorable and they are everywhere.  Some aren't lucky enough and are just left on the rocks as shells and crab bits, but the ones that are still kickin' are quick and quite photogenic.  The shells are…

My Favorite Things About Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands

There were a lot of highlights of my Ecuador/Galapagos trip two years ago.  Two whole years ago.  That seems like too long, but I still know what I enjoyed the most.  Some things are just too good to explain in a few paragraphs though and deserve their own posts.  These are my favorite things in…
