|If I add a picture, it means we did it|
The crater is 10 kilometers across, and holds the title of being the second largest in the world, right behind Ngorogoro Crater in Tanzania.
We walked to the spot where the secondary volcano started to form, and then down the other side to Chico.
|Very desolate but terribly interesting|
Unfortunately, it didn't sound as though they had had as amazing of a time here in the Galapagos as we have, and it just goes to show that not all traveling experiences are viewed in the same way. What a lot of people don't have when they travel is time. Time to research what experiences will be the most satisfying, time to discover what you are hoping to get out of each destination, and often, just the time to allow a destination to wash over you in silence, rather than in experiences. Traveling sailors are lucky, or at least we know we are. Aside from weather and visa issues, we have the luxury of being able to decide when and where to stay, and for how long. We can get out of each destination what we wish to. Ron and I have decided that given the size of the world, and where we still want to go, each destination we come to needs to be explored as if we are never going to return. We therefor allow ourselves the time to come to know each stop as intimately as we can be as travelers and not residents.
And with all this soul searching, we hardly noticed our aching knees when we got back to the bottom of the hill. Ron, pass me another Advil.
