I Snorkeled for the First Time
1. Visit Ecuador - beautiful faces, colonial architecture, narrow alleys, iron balconies, majestic volcanoes.
2. Visit the Galapagos - stark beauty of the volcanic beaches, sea lions who try to steal your shirt, boobies who scope you for a new girlfriend, mockingbirds that live up to their name, frigate birds who poop on your hat with a thunderous plop, finches that fly practically right over your head, iguanas crouching on a rock next to your knee (to look up your shorts, maybe?).
3. Go snorkeling.
Listen, I was the worst swimming student in the world and I´m hooked.
Tomorrow I hope to see sharks! (And I bet some people over at Uncommon Descent wish that I would, too!)
