Tortuga Bay

About a 20-minute walk from the main water taxi dock in Puerto Ayora, Toruga Bay has a gigantic, perfectly preserved beach that is forbidden to swimmers due to the current which makes it the perfect spot to see some of the infamous Galapagos wildlife. Iguanas, crabs and birds are seen dotted along the lava rocks. There is a separate cove where you can swim where it is common to view whitetip reef sharks swimming in groups, small fish, birds, and gigantic turtles.

Evolution Starts Here

The home of Charles Darwin’s Theory of Evolution has long been a bucket list item for me, and to be able to visit the remote islands of the Galapagos as part of a $238 round trip ticket makes it even sweeter! For those keeping track of passport stamps, this makes #49. Which will it be first? 50 countries or all 50 US states?

VIP Treatment

Turns out the 7 course meal was just the beginning of what Harumi had in store for us. Several nights of VIP service in Peru’s hottest night clubs, and then to top it all off with front-row seats at the Miss Nikkei 2012 beauty pageant — something I never thought I’d experience. It pays to know people in other countries!

Costanera 700

Our friend Harumi took us out to lunch to a Peruvian-Japanese fusion restaurant for an AMAZING 7-course meal prepared by legendary chef Humberto Sato. Euphoric flavor combinations with every bite. The flaming salted incased fish with quite the performance. It’s sort of like the Peruvian equivalent to Mexican fajitas that come out on a sizzling platter.

The Golden State Capitol

Had to at least stop through Sacramento to see the capitol building.
