Favorite thing: This was the most painful part of the trip. Diving 4-5 times a day plus drinking at the open bar at night, and on top of that the rocking and rolling of the boat all night long certainly takes it out of you after about a week or so...
But the worst part was that 6:30 AM or so wake up call every morning..... Just when you finally over come the boat motion and start to fall into a deep sleep, the PA system comes alive: "GOOD MORNING, ITS 6:30 AM, TIME FOR YOUR DELICIOUS BREAKFAST..."
NO NO NO !!! I dont want no delicious breakfast, just let me sleep til about 10 or so..... Sorry not to be..... What the #@#$$$ kinda vacation is this anway ?????
Paulo Picasso and one of his many works of art....
Favorite thing: How to find the Whale sharks in the Galapagos.... Thats easy, just sit in the predive brief and listen closely... Or even better just remember: "Follow Paulo" He had bright yellow flippers on, so this was not a problem....
Oh Lord, bring us calms seas and big whale sharks
Favorite thing: Not sure the significance of this ritual as it originated in foreign lands, but it did seems to be effective in bring good luck in finding many of the vaunted whale sharks in the waters around the Galapagos.
You cant argue with success.......
DONT TOUCH THE WILDLIFE !!!
Favorite thing: The park guide made it pretty clear there will be no touching, feeding, riding, or other wise harassing the wildlife in the Galapagos... Which I fully support, but.....
I guess when you get right up next to one of them big whale sharks, it is hard not to give him a little pat on the side.... (kinda felt like thumping on one of them big Taiko drums.... )TONG TONG TONG.... Sorry I guess I couldnt resist...
