Galapagos


Great article, with stunning photos, from the NYT on the Galapagos. If I knew Armageddon was coming, I would take my loved ones there and wait patiently, since surely the end of time would come to the end of the world first. This person apparently has almost the right idea, although he should be on Isla Fernandina--more remote and apocalyptic--not San Cristobal.

Kicker Rock is on the horizon: very good scuba diving there, with sharks and mantas and turtles and sea lions and, on the way, dolphins and whales; birds of every color wheel above. Looking into the water, from the boat or from beneath the waves, it looks like the ark spilled half its creatures when Noah tipsily fell off the wheel.
