Since I'm leaving on June 15, 2008 to teach English as a Foreign Language in the Galapagos Islands, 600 miles off the coast of Ecuador, for two months, I thought it might be useful to find out the history of the islands and useful information cultural information that I could use to integrate myself into their culture and use in my teaching while I'm there. Searching on Google, I first entered: "Galapagos Islands" OR "Islas Galapagos" (as they are called in Spanish) so I could get a full listing of both English and Spanish websites available to me because I am able to read both languages fluently.

Awesome search! I also searched for information on my study abroad destination! Sounds like the coolest thing you found was the dictionary of Ecuadorian slang. That will be very useful!

I think that this search is very interesting and it has gotten me to thinking about how an Elementary Education major could integrate some of the things you have found into a geographical lesson plan. I also like how you focused on your Spanish background and searched information in that way. Thank you for finding such useful information!
