Galápagos Fotos

In association with the e7 Network, SolarQuest® is installing solar-powered internet connections at schools in the Galápagos islands. As students install equipment, they learn about energy and technology with direct hands-on experience.

Birds and scenery as well as people we worked with and the server we installed. There is a botanical garden in Guayaquil that we got to too late for good photos of most things, and that huge river alongside. The birds with blue feet are called Blue Footed Boobies, and there is one with a couple of Red Footed Boobies as well. The big black birds are Frigate Birds, the ones in Guayaquil are unknown. The guy with the tie in Guayaquil is a street corner preacher.

On the way home there are the tops of some mountains peeking thru the clouds (we were at 28,000 feet), a few of Cuba from the air, and then Miami.

Barb took real pictures (you know, the old-fashioned kind) with Kodak film. These are digitized copies of her photos.

February and March 2002

An exploratory trip was made to the islands to prepare for the program.
