It's a change over day today with new people coming and we're hanging out on the mainland for a bit - we went to see huge 100 year + old land turtles today and catching up on email etc
the next 4 days should see more great beaches, volcanoes and hopefully some penguins!
p.s. have been compiling my favourite quotes from multi-national boat :-)
Cesar - our guide: 'all around you there are many boobies' - of course, referring to the blue-footed boobie, nesting on the island in question
Cesar (again): 'she was lovely when she was young- say 28, but then she got old and very fat and she was not so nice' - talking a bout a local women he knew
A fellow european traveller speaking english - 'it is the noising in my head that is making me forget my wordings' - awesome - this is exactly how i sound when I speak spanglish! :-)
An american tour guide - ' the bachelor sea lions have a quickie with the females when the 'beach master' is not looking' - only an american would call the male sea lion ('the bull') the 'beach master'! :-)
more to come I'm sure
