Holà. To close out 2015, Lee, Ray, Adriene and I sailed The Galapagos Islands on a little 16-person boat called The Yata Frigata. Prior to the cruise, Lee drove me south from Ecuador’s Quito along the Andean volcano ridge through the adventure travel town of Banõs and into the Amazon jungle. After the eight-day cruise of The Galapagos, the four of us got reacquainted to land at 14,000 feet. We toured the high-altitude colonial town of Quito for three nights, checking out churches, breweries, and markets. I bought a new camera for this trip, a Sony mirror-less DLSR that takes fantastic pictures.
