Going to the Galápagos and then Israel

August 2, 2023 • 1:00 pm

I’m long overdue for some traveling, and so here are my next two trips.

Galápagos:  I’m lecturing for a University of Chicago Alumni group tour on a Lindblad cruise of the famous archipelago. I’ll be gone from August 11 through August 20 (a quickie). I’ll be giving two big lectures and perhaps two audience-participation discussions.

Israel: This has always been on my bucket list, so I’m going for a few weeks. I’m leaving here September 2 and will return Sept. 23.

In both cases, please don’t send wildlife photos (or many email items in general), as I’m not sure how much internet access I’ll have, and stuff may get lost. Posting on this website will certainly be much more sporadic. I will do my best.

HOWEVER, if there are any readers in Israel who would like to say “hi”, I’ll be there for about three weeks. The first ten days I’ll be in Tel Aviv and Jerusalem, often (but not always) with friends, and after that will travel around the country to see more sights.  Email me if you want to share some hummus or falafel!

  1. Good afternoon Jerry,

    Please don’t forget to inform us on each day of your trip on how you woke up feeling!!! Are you more a “80% female and 20% male” type?!


    1. I would love to, but we’re flying to Guayquil, then to the islands, and then back and right back to the USA. I have no spare time at all. But I want to see it in its native environs some other time!
      When do I get my tadpole pictures?

  2. Wow. Excellent trips. I like the fact you are using your time and money to travel. We love the stories and pics at WEIT.
    I’ve always been curious about Israel as I did my first degree in Middle East politics and have travelled to most countries in that region. Haven’t been there, though: it is hard to combine it with neighboring countries. Couldn’t cross from Lebanon. Wonder why? hehehee
    I’m constantly annoyed by the anti-Semitic tone of the media, however. Other countries can be criticized WITHOUT calling for the destruction of their entire state. Only Israel gets that.

  3. My wife keeps saying that she wants to go to the Galapagos, ideally with a lecturer that she would find fascinating. Unfortunately she’s off in Kenya at the moment (annual audits for the charity projects), but maybe one of these years she will join you!
