Photographer's Note

Floreana Island
Post Office Bay has had a barrel thats been
change many times, over the years. Whalers and Galapagos residents use to leave their mail inside
it, waiting for a captain of any boat headed to where the mail was addressed to deliver it.
The tradition still remains today
You can leave a letter in the box and when someone who lives near where you want to sent it see it, they will take it with them and deliver it upon their return home
