"How good it would be to live on the moon", a Saliva Indian (from the Upper Orinoco) said. "It is so beautiful and clear that it must be free of mosquitos." (von Humboldt, Personal Narrative of a Journey)
I traveled to Quito then the Galapagos Islands with a cruise. The price was right, and the trip was fantastic. The people at the hotel and on the ship were wonderful, and ready to help with any need. Galapagos was an adventure of a lifetime.
