Where did the time go? It’s hard to believe today is our sixth day on the Galapagos. We boarded a bus for the dock in Puerto Villamil at 7 AM, hopped into water taxis to two bigger boats, rode for 2.5 hours to Puerto Ayora. Water taxis took us to the dock where a bus picked us up for the ride to the north end of Santa Cruz island. We got on a short ferry to the adjacent island of Baltra where an airport is located. We saw two Land Iguanas there, the only ones we saw on the trip. (The one pictured is underneath a parked truck!) We arrived by bus in plenty of time to make our flight on AeroGal airlines to Quito. Students were met at the Quito airport by their home-stay families. Lots of different kinds of public transportation today.
Tomorrow, we are off the large artisanal market in Otavalo.
