In the Galápagos

January 11, 2010 • 2:30 pm

Internet time here is very limited, and there’s no opportunity to post photos, of which I have many, but let me just say that, after 2.5 days, the islands have met and exceeded every expectation that a jaded old evolutionist would have.  There are a gazillion things to see and do, much enhanced by the obliging employees at Lindblad, and the experience is limned by the extraordinarily tame animals.  Though I haven’t knocked a hawk off of a tree with the barrel of my shotgun, as Darwin did, I’ve almost stepped on both sea lions and iguanas.  The experience would be much poorer, I think, if it were not filtered for many of us through the lens of Darwin.
