Hello friends. How are you? Incredible! We’re having an incredible year!
We can tell you some superficial things about us if you like. We are early thirties. And we’re never going to update this so we can be forever. We are one librarian and one tradesman. We live in a village about one hour’s train ride from Melbourne in Australia. Despite the tiny kitchen we have, we spend maximum time making a mess in it in our joy of attempting to create delicious things. We are not in the least bit unique in loving food and travel. But we like to show off and to see other people showing off too. And then talk about it, and then eat it all.
Our blog title, of course, has nothing to do with any of this.
We saw this nature doco once which featured the Galapagos Islands (and I’ve just wasted 10 minutes on google trying to find out which show it was, the best I can come up with is the Kratt Brothers). Even if you aren’t into this sort of thing, there has to be something to enjoy in it because the Galapagos has the marine iguana, and it is classic. We know this now because the brothers repeatedly pointed out the various behaviours of the marine iguana as being ‘classic’ in the most enthusiastic and American way possible.
Classic marine iguana! (Eating red and green algae)
Classic marine iguana! (Spitting salt out of its nose)
Classic marine iguana! (Lying on the rocks to warm up).
The BBC has a very informative and relaxing video (due to the lady’s voice) that gives you a five minute intro to the ways of the classic marine iguana. We dare you not to be impressed.
