  • As the plane began it’s decent, the pilot announced for everyone to buckle his or her seatbelts. I peered out of the window and tried to scope out the Galapagos Islands. Though the sun was causing a huge glare making it nearly impossible to see, everyone tried to get a glance before we landed....
