Isla Santa Cruz: Casually Goodbying Gorgeous Galapagos

Isla Santa Cruz: Casually Goodbying Gorgeous Galapagos. June 25. I met a young guy without a face today on Isla Santa Cruz.  He was German, about 22 years old, and the entire right side of his face was bandaged.  I asked him if he had a good story for me.  He told me that he was riding a mountain bike close to Volcan Sierra Negra on Isla Isabela and when he fell on his face and the gravel was crushed...
