A few fairly chilled out days in San Cristobal the last two days thanks to intermittent heavy rain. Yesterday we rented some snorkels and headed out to a bay called Las Tijeretas, legging it out there at one point when the rain stopped and making our way back in a downfall. The snorkeling wasn’t all that exciting… a lot of American students and only one turtle and one sea lion swimming past – it’s amazing how quickly you get used to amazing sights.

Today we headed up to El Junco, a lake that’s formed in the crater of a volcano, and made it back into town just as the rain set in again. After a nice nap and few beers, the rain cleared up and we made it out to the beach for a few hours (along with the rest of the families on the island) before the sun started to set.

Tomorrow’s our last day here in the Galapagos before we fly out to Quito on Monday morning. We’ve had an amazing time here but are looking forward to getting back over to mainland Ecuador for a few days in the capital before we head to a town called Banos for a load of activities like white water rafting, bungee jumping, ziplining, rappelling down waterfalls and mountain bike riding.
