I realize that this is the Africa forum, but I also realize that many of the regulars have a keen interest in wildlife, and I'd like, therefor, to MOST HIGHLY recommend a trip to the Galapagos, where my girlfriend and I visited over New Year's. I don't think I'm going to do a trip report, but we bought a digital camera to take along with my SLR, so we may post selected photos on OFOTO and if you post your email below and are interested, I can email you the link. We will need to edit down the pictures because we each took over 400 photos.

I'd be interested in photos and any abbreviated trip report we could persuade you to share!

My parents have been 3 times and loved each visit!

Please email me the link at [email protected]. I visited the Galapagos in 1982 with my mother and daughter. I've done a lot of traveling since then, but I still think it was the most awesome trip I've taken.

We still haven't worked out the kinks on downloading from our new digital camera, so I haven't posted any of our Galapagos on line yet. I did print almost 400 photos that I took with an SLR and the animals in the Galapagos are as equally photogenic as the bigger game in Africa, and much closer, so we got some terrific photos. We went to Paris this weekend, so I now need to also do something with those photos (two cameras, digital and an SLR, is a lot of work). Sorry for delay.

hey thit_cho - I would love to see your photos. [email protected]

I know what you mean about all the photos being alot of work. After my trip to Africa it took literally months to process them all. (all digital slr)

Thanks for sharing them (when you get to it!).

Michael, would love to see them whenever they are ready. Also - how realistic is this trip for someone who tends to get seasick? Thx.

One question: for underwater picture, do you need some high-end camera? We don't want to spend a fortune on underwater camera while still want (relative) good pcitures. Thanks!

Michael... you're not in London are you? If so maybe you can join some of us meeting on the 5th for a meal (probably in North London, possibly Central).

No, I'm in New York, although I get to London frequently on business (was just there last October). That sounds like a fun event.
