The Galapagos

Hey guys! So, at the end of December (during Christmas) my family came down to visit me and my host family. It was fantastic being able to show my parents and sister how I live my life here in Ecuador and how interesting living with an indigenous Cañari family is. We visited Ingapirca, ate cuy (guinea pig), and listened to my host dad and his music students play some indigenous music. After visiting my host family, we took a flight to the Galapagos where we met up with my cousins and aunts and uncles, and got to explore one of the most beautiful places I have ever seen. I chased after sharks, chilled with turtles, almost got hit by an orca, surfed with blue footed boobies, played with wild sea lions, and swam with penguins. I tried to upload the pictures straight to this blog post but it wouldn’t let me, so click on the link to see a bunch of pictures and videos of my time thereJ
