Colombia

The Frailejónes of the Paramo de Oceta
Another of those countries that everyone has heard of for the wrong reasons. In Colombia’s case it’s the prolonged terrorism of the leftist rebels. Fortunately I didn’t run into any of that; it was just nature – namely rain – that tried to thwart my travel plans.

The Galapagos (and some of Ecuador)

A marine iguana taking in the view on Las Plazas.
I went to the Galapagos. I also went to other places in Ecuador (including prison), but I’m going to talk mostly about the Galapagos. Sorry. (Don’t worry – the prison stuff is all written up!)
