I flew from Quito (the capital of Ecuador which is on the west coast of south america) to San Cristobal. San Cristobal has the 2nd biggest population in the Galapagos. It turns out that there's a fair amount of people on these islands.
After 4 days on San Cristobal, I took the speed boat to Santa Cruz to join a yoga retreat with Rocky Heron. We basically did yoga morning and evening and adventure in the day time. It was great!
The hotel was also a coffee plantation and had a lot of wild tortoises "running" around.

The other people in my yoga group had made fun of me because of my enthusiasm for swimming with sea lions BUT only until they tried it themselves. After that, they were equally enthusiastic : )
