Daniela had to fly back to the mainland this morning. I really appreciated seeing her again, and I think her visit went quite well. We saw an unreal amount of stuff in a short amount of time.
Actually, packing so much action into just a few days left me kind of feeling overwhelmed. I needed a day just to let everything I had seen so far on the Galapagos sink in. Besides sorting through all of my pictures (I shot over 1000 during the cruise), about the only thing I did this afternoon was go back to the Charles Darwin Research Center to look at the tortoises some more. They may have had faces only a mother could love, but they were still interesting to watch simply because of their gigantic size. I could comfortably fit inside some of their shells.
