We have to leave Galapagos today otherwise we won’t be able to go home. Covid-19 finally reached Galapagos and my group has to go back to their home-countries. Airports are shutting down all over the world. It is better for everyone to be home. The world is shutting down and so are we.
Living in Galápagos is a lifestyle worthwhile to experience. The town though growing fast is still a town, where you meet the same people on and on every day, mostly friends. Not to be surprised that by the end of the day we have a group of mums having a drink with kids nearby playing, scientists having a cup of coffee with their team, fishermen coming back to sell their catch, park rangers going back home after a busy day of hard work supporting conservation.
The end of the day is very busy and the best part of it takes place during the “Ecua-Volley” game at the main park “Parque San Francisco”. I love this part of the day, time when misunderstandings are forgotten and all that matters are the game.
