Bye, bye, boobies

I’m back from my travels in Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands. I’ve hiked through the cloud forest and soared over it on a “sky bike” at Mashpi Lodge.

In the Galapagos Islands, I saw giant tortoises, sea lions, iguanas, blue- and red-footed boobies, frigate birds, short-eared owls and finches, hiked over lava fields, snorkeled and kayaked.

For nearly five days I lived without Internet access! Meanwhile, Diana Senechal, Michael E. Lopez and Rachel Levy were blogging up a storm. I’m very grateful to my guest bloggers.

    welcome back. If you want to get back into the saddle, check out a column in weekend WSJ about how kids in traditional societies learn, as the progressives used to say, by doing.
