"In the Orinoco, the jaguar sometimes leaps into the water to attack Indians in their canoes." (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.
