As we sailed down the west coast of South America we stopped at many ports. Manta, Lima, Santiago, Isla Robinson Crusoe, Ushuaia, Montevideo and Buenos Aires, to name a few. We often got off the Zaandam an took a guided tour of area. The small mountain in the background is a temple. There were several near Guayaquil Ecuador, made of adobe bricks. We went inside the Temple of the Moon, which was being restored. This was part of one of our tours. I knew very little about South America so each shore excursion was an immense learning experience.
I could continue to write about the cruise . South America is a fascinating place. If you want to learn more the internet holds is an unending source of information. I will however start my future posts with one of the 2000 picture my wife and I took.
