Hi Colin,

I'm in GPS on business sitting on the porch of my little hotel in San Cristobal Island after a mind-boggling day of photographing boobies, sea lions and frigate birds all within walking distance!  Tomorrow I'm going to a farm on the far side of the island to find out about their local crops and efforts to establish local food resources.  What kind of info are you interested in?

Volunteer a few hours of work a day and get a free room, drinks, and 10 hours of Spanish lessons from the Secret Garden Spanish School in Quito. Thanks to travel/wine/design writer Jeanine Barone for finding this great deal.

Please visit, a web journal about culture and heritage tourism in places of the African Diaspora worldwide. Let me know what you think and sign up for the mailing list to stay in the loop. We just did a great personal travel story on Ecudor.
