Galapagos, Day 5

Written on: Thursday September 6th, 2007

A journal entry from: Bolivia, Peru, and the Galapagos!

We arrived on Floreana today after a very choppy night. The highlights of this island are flamingos and a beach coated with sting rays. We also visited the whalers mail station at Post Office Bay. Whalers used to drop off mail that they wanted sent home, likewise they would pick up any mail that needed to go to a destination near their next port. Tourists use it today and drop off postcards in hopes that another tourist will come by that lives near that destination and take it with them to deliver the card.
