Galapagos & Panama 1998
With my 13 year old daughter, we flew to Quito, Ecuador, then on to the Galapagos Islands. There we spent a week on a sailing ship visitiing many of the islands and traversing the equator countless times. Afterwards, we spent a few days in Panama City, Panama, and were able to visit the Panama Canal, taking a small boat tour and stopping at a small island where the indians live as they have for hundreds of years.

The ubiquitous iguanas of the Galapagos Islands are rich in their colors. This one was about 2 feet long. Iguanas are very slow movers, and the one species in the Galapagos have evolved into excellent swimmers.
