Ecuadorian Arm Chair Travels
May 27th, 9:15am, upstairs in the Flex Room
Travel vicariously with BUF members Beth Brownfield and daughter Jenny Bowefield as they share their 16 days in Ecuador. Meet a prostitute and a pickpocket in Quito, the capitol, experience 4 nights in the Amazon, and a week of wonder in the Galapagos Islands. With the help of Overseas Adventure Travel, we’ll climb through a giant kapok tree up into the canopy of the rainforest to see a few of the billions of specimens of Amazonian flora and fauna. On a night walk in the jungle we’ll meet tarantulas, scorpions, centipedes and spiders, then awaken to the screeches of monkeys passing nearby. Our Ecuadorian lunch includes a local delicacy of live grubs. Then on to the Galapagos to swim with sea lions, sea turtles, manta rays, and tropical fish, and to walk beside a freeway of sea iguanas leaving the beach to catch the sun. Prepare to be amazed.
