Voyage of the Beagle Part II

Summary Voyage of the Beagle Part II

After returning from the successful Andes expedition Darwin rejoined the Beagle for the trip north to Lima, where they arrived on July 19, 1835. Unfortunately, political unrest was such that they were confined to the port, unable to enter the city itself. They finally headed west into the Pacific two months later, catching their first glimpse of the Galapagos Islands, which Darwin was later to make famous, on September 15.
