Map: (North)Eastern South America, Mar/April 2010
Map for (North)Eastern South America, 43 days on the ship Mar/April 2010. Rio de Janeiro to Buenos Aires, back to Rio, up and back the Amazon River, through the Caribbean to Fort Lauderdale and on to New York City. An interesting cruise, but not without its issues.... In most cities we were constantly watching our backs for potential crime which we were reminded of by ship staff and others before we left home. We left our DSLRs on the ship and took our smaller "point and shoot" cameras, but even then police and citizens stopped us and told us to put our cameras away because of the risk. Unlike all other countries we have cruised to, Brazil made a point of demonstrating their "power" and delayed us getting off the ship in many of their ports.
Another Dirty City, Mar/April 2010
Another dirty city. Mar/April 2010. (North)eastern South America Cruise. While it might not be fair, the large cities, particularly in Brazil, struck us as being quite dirty. In many locations we were constantly watching our backs for potential crime which we were constantly reminded of by ship staff and others before we left home.
But not all were dirty,NE South America 03/04 2010
But not all were dirty, NE South America 03/04 2010. Some of the smaller cities, and locations within the larger cities, were quite nice.
Montevideo, Uruguay, Mar 17, 2010
Montevideo, Uruguay, Mar 17, 2010. Our research had indicated that this was a great city to visit, but when we arrived we were handed a map by the local authorities and told to STAY ON the streets as marked. The streets as marked were less than appealing. They had police stationed on every corner of the first part of the route. The return route was dismal and had no police in evidence. After being warned by locals, we quickly went back the way we came. The central part was quite nice looking. The police, carrying automatic weapons, frequently traveled in groups of 2-3 with a dog.
Buenos Aires, Mar 18-19, 2010
Buenos Aires, March 18-19, 2010. We had an overnight in Buenos Airies which gave us more time to see things in this very large busy city
Rio de Janerio, Brazil. March 11 and 17, 2010
Rio de Janerio, Brazil. March 11 and 17, 2010. We had one full day in the city before our cruise ship left and had a second day when the ship returned before it continued north. We hired different local guides for each day to see the city. Both guides were very knowledgable, but very cautious as to where they woudl take us and what cameras we could use. They much preferred we use our "point and shoots" vs the dSLRs due to the crime.
Amazon River, April 4-12, 2010
Amazon River, April 4-12, 2010. The ship sailed 700 miles up the river to Manaus. A large city with a population of over 2,000,000. Cruise ships can go up the Amazon only when the river is high and then only ships drawing less than 30 feet. The river is wide at its mouth and the narrows down somewhat. There are villages and cities along the shoreline.
Manaus, Brazil. April 9-10, 2010
Manaus, Brazil. April 9-10, 2010. This is the farthest up river the ship went. It is a large city with a population over 2,000,000. Upstream some 700 miles from the Atlantic. We opted for nature oriented excursions and did not spent time in the city (or at its world-class Opera House)
The "Meeting of the Waters". Manaus. Apr 10, 2010
The "Meeting of the Waters". Manaus. Apr 10, 2010. The confluence between the Rio Negro, a river with dark (almost black coloured) water, and the sandy-coloured Amazon River or Rio Solimões, as it is known the upper section of the Amazon in Brazil. For 6 km (3.7 mi) the river's waters run side by side without mixing. This phenomenon is due to the differences in temperature, speed and water density of the two rivers. The Rio Negro flows at near 2 km per hour at a temperature of 28°C, while the Rio Solimões flows between 4 to 6 km per hour a temperature of 22°C
Boca de Valeria, Brazil. April 8, 2010
Boca de Valeria, Brazil. April 8, 2010. A native village of about 150 being visited by a cruise ship with 1200 passengers. A few other natives from nearby drop in as well. The kids get dressed up and parade their pets for photographers (one of the few places in Barzil where we heard any English: "One dollar"). Other kids grab visitors by the hand and guide them around. (hoping for some $$ too) The men bring their boats and offer rides up the small tributary.
Crossing the equator. April 13, 2010
Crossing the equator. April 13, 2010. The ceremony of Crossing the Line is an initiation rite in the Royal Navy, U.S. Navy, U.S. Coast Guard, U.S. Marine Corps, and other navies that commemorates a sailor's first crossing of the Equator. Sailors who have already crossed the Equator are nicknamed (Trusty) Shellbacks, often referred to as Sons of Neptune; those who have not are nicknamed (Slimy) Pollywogs. In our case, the passengers were not subjected to "indignities", but the crew is. Crew members who had not crossed the equator before (Pollywogs) were assembled by Shellbacks and had to appear before Neptune and the ship's officers. A fun time had by all

Georgetown, Cayman Islands Dec, 2010. Visit by cruise ship. The wind was too strong for ship to stop by town, so it anchored in a protected bay behind town and we took a bus to town. There was not much to see in town. Some people rented cars and drove around more of the Island.

Galapagos, June, 2013
A brief overview, maps and the boat we were on. See other albums for pictures of the islands and their inhabitants etc.
Galapagos Birds
Selected shots of some of the birds on the Galapagos
Galapagos Sea Lions
These guys seemed to be all over: on the beaches, on benches in urban centres, checking out the zodiacs and swimming with us as we snorkeled in several spots.
Galapagos Turtles and Tortoises
Green sea turtles are not bothered by your swimming with them, but they don't seek you out like the sea lions. We saw many from the zodiacs. To see the tortoises, we visited a research station where they are being raised for release and also went into to the highlands on Santa Cruz to see ones in the wild.
Galapagos Iguanas and Lizards
Marine iguanas were on several islands, while we only saw land iguanas in one area of Santa Cruz. The smaller lava lizards were common on several of the islands.
Galapagos fish
While snorkeling there are lots of fish swimming by, including some white tipped reef sharks.
Galapagos Misc (crabs, locust, Man-of-war)
The brightly coloured sally lightfoot crab is everywhere. There are also ghost and hermit crabs. There weren't many insects around except horse flies that take junks out of you. We did see a few colourful locust though On one beach we found two portguese man-of-war. These are tiny jellyfish-like animals that have very painful stingers.
Galapagos land and seascapes
A few pictures of the varying landscapes throughout the islands
Galapagos cactus
Some of the islands were desert-like with tall cacti growing
Galapagos Post Office Bay
On Floreana Island there is a site of an old whaling station. For more than 150 years there has been an old barrel used as a "post office". Whalers and sailors would leave letters in the barrel to be picked up by passing ships. Today visitors leave post cards in the (newly replaced) barrel and check to see if there are post cards there addressed to someone in a city they will be going home to. If so they are asked to hand deliver the card. We found one for Ottawa (and several more for not too far away from home)
Galapagos trails, terrain and animal encroachments
There was a wide variety of terrain on the trails. Some were easy smooth flat walking, others were walking on 12-15" boulder strewn paths. While we were supposed to stay on the trails and 6' away from the animals, that was not always possible.
Galapagos urban centres
25,000 people live on the Galapagos Islands, some 20,000 of them live on Santa Cruz Island, in Puerto Ayora. There is a much smaller town on San Cristobel. There are a few other much smaller scattered settlements/farms
Galapagos boats
All landings are done by zodiacs. Boats for tourists have licenses for sport fishing, scuba diving or island tours. There are no overlapping licenses. All licenses are strictly controlled and in limited numbers. Tour boats are typically 16 passenger, but there are five 100 passenger ships (e.g.National Geographic, Silver Seas, Celebrity)
Ecuador Oct 17, 2013 Quito
We spent a day in Quito prior to our leaving for the week on the Galapagos. We walked around the old town with our Road Scholar guide
Ecuador Oct 26, 2013 Antisana and Papallacta
After a week in the Galapagos, we flew back to Quito and then 5 of us with a guide and driver drove to the highlands north and east of Quito. This day had us going to a Nature Reserve high in the highlands, Unfortunately to get there we had to drive a long time (up and and back) on an EXTREMELY rough road. Many of the highways in Ecuador are in rough shape, but they are re-building many of them. We ended the day on another rough road taking us into the Hot Pools from which we would operate the next two days.
Ecuador Oct 27, 2013 Guango and Papallacta
After a week in the Galapagos, we flew back to Quito and then 5 of us with a guide and driver drove to the highlands north and east of Quito. Today was a rainy day during which we visited a local nature centre/hotel. We saw hummingbirds and took a hike in the showers. We returned to the Hot Pools and took another hike. The rain had stopped by the trail was slippery in spots.
Ecuador Oct 28, 2013 El Quinche and Cayambe
After a week in the Galapagos, we flew back to Quito and then 5 of us with a guide and driver drove to the highlands north and east of Quito. Today we left the Hot Pools and visited a local market, an expansive cut flower greenhouse facility that supplies the USA, Russia and other countries. We stopped in a few other small towns along the way. The day ended with a longer, rough ride into the Hacienda where we would be staying for the next two nights.
Ecuador Oct 29, 2013 Otavalo
After a week in the Galapagos, we flew back to Quito and then 5 of us with a guide and driver drove to the highlands north and east of Quito. We started out early to get to Otavalo in time for the full action at the market. There is an animal market, a vegetable market and a textile (tourist) market. These markets are well known and draw many locals as well as tourists. We also stopped in some other small towns including a town known for its wood products (furniture and carvings).
Ecuador Oct 30, 2013 Cotacachi and Quito
After a week in the Galapagos, we flew back to Quito and then 5 of us with a guide and driver drove to the highlands north and east of Quito. This was our last day before heading home. We drove a rough road up to get an overlook at a lake, however the clouds were lower than the overlook and we had to settle for a view from lakeside. Also visited was a small town for leather workings and indigenous textiles. While we were there the end of the summer solstice celebration was taking place with a brief "parade"/"mob". From there is was a 90 minute drive back to Quito.
2013 South American Cruise - map
The route and ports visited on the 30 day trip, Oct 17 to Nov 17. We circled Cape Horn at the very bottom of South America. This is some 600 miles from the tip of Antarctica. In 2010 we had cruised from Ft Lauderdale to Buenos Aires, including up and back the Amazon River, so we can now say we have circumnavigated South America. Pictures from the 2010 trip are also available on this site.

Our only stop in Ecuador. Visits to Tagua nut and Panama Hat workshops as well as a fishing village
2013 South American Cruise - Oct 27 Salaverry Peru
Port town was Salaverry but there was nothing much there other than sand and port facilities. We took a shuttle into Trujillo, about 20 minutes away
2013 South American Cruise - Oct 29 Lima, Peru
An overnight stay in Lima. The port was very large and busy. We took a taxi to a downtown artisan market area.
2013 South American Cruise - Oct 30 Paracus, Peru
Most of the coast of Peru is a desert and Paracus is no different. It felt like the ship docked in the sand dunes. The local town was 25 minutes away with no way to get there. We took an excursion to Paracus National Reserve. The description sounded good, but....
2013 South American Cruise - Nov 1 Arica Chile
The town was closed up tight for All Saints Day, so we just walked around the town. The main square was very clean, and kept that way by wet mopping on the ceramic tile covered ground.
2013 South American Cruise - Nov 3 Coquimbo Chile
Another busy large port. The town was built on a hill, with steep slopes having zig-zag stairs. Their fish market attracted very large sea lions.
2013 South American Cruise - Nov 4 Valparaiso, Chi
Valpariso is a large city much of which is built on a hill. There are a number of funiculars to assist people in getting up the hills to their homes. Downtown was busy, with a large modern shopping centre. The cleanliness could have been better though.
2013 South American Cruise - Nov 6 Puerto Montt
A very wet day, with a few pockets of sunshine. There was a largish artisan market that stretched along one end of the main street. At the same end was a fish market. A number of other smaller market type areas were located along the street as we walked towards "downtown". An outdoor vegetable market was "downtown" along with a good sized grocery store.
2013 South American Cruise -Nov 7 Puerto Chacabuco
A very small town set in surroundings mountains. The cruise ships used to visit a larger town further up the channel, but earthquakes have caused the silting of the channel to such an extent that ships have to dock at this port.
2013 South American Cruise -Nov 10 Punta Arenas
A 2 hour somewhat rockin' & rollin' ride took us to an island with Megallanic penguins. It was incubation time so there were not a lot of penguins to be seen, but enough to get a few decent pics.
2013 South American Cruise -Nov 8,9,11 cruising
On a number of days we did not go into any port, but cruised various channels passing hills, snow topped mountains and several glaciers
2013 South American Cruise - Nov 11 Ushuaia
Ushuaia, the southern most city in the world, is bordered by magnificent mountains. The day we were there, it was sunny and no wind, so it was quite warm. It is the "take-off" point for most of the trips to the Antarctica.
2013 South American Cruise - Nov 12 Cape Horn
In anticipation of the winds and waves around Cape Horn, the captain had all the outside furniture tied down. We arrived at Cape Horn around 6am when the wind was not too bad. We circled the island that is the "Horn" and found it relatively calm on the leeward side. In the meantime we had had some mildly rough seas plus a hail/snow storm on the windward side.
2013 South American Cruise - Nov 14 Puerto Madryn
Puerto Madryn is a very nice smallish port. A good number of condos, nice shopping.
2013 South American Cruise - Nov 16 Montevideo
This was our second visit to Montevideo, Uruguay. We had heard good things about it, but came away with less than positive feelings in 2010. This time we hired a private guide and driver and were given a much different, and better, view of the city. Thus the overwhelming number of pictures in this album.
2013 South American Cruise - Nov 17 Buenos Aires
We left the ship in Buenos Aires. A 3-4 hour bus tour took us through the city and on to the airport. We had been in Buenos Aires in 2010
