Los Galápagos

This picture was taken on San Cristobal island in the Galapagos Islands. We had arrived in Ecuador only weeks before, and everyone was very excited for our trip. This photo is significant to me because exploring the Galapagos Islands was one of my favorite experiences while abroad. I had never been in an environment where wild animals were so unafraid of humans. Additionally, this trip is when our Willamette group started to form our friendship. We were all nervous, excited, happy, worried about our host families and thankful for the opportunity to study abroad. For me, this picture represents the beginning of my five months abroad in Ecuador.
