    ... that there was more to 'stars' such as Omega Centauri and Alpha Crux than meets the naked eye, we were shown binary stars dancing around each other, we zoomed in on globular clusters of thousands of stars, and we were told how old the images we were seeing were. Jupiter was seen as it was 40 minutes ago, whilst some images we were seeing were of bodies as they were dozens of millions of years ago. Mario's enthusiasm was infectious and he said that he never gets bored of ...

Apparently lots of hippies moved to vicuna before December 2012 as apparently when the world ended you'd be ...

    ... of dinner, everyone thought it would be a good idea to share all of their tarantula and scorpion stories. I don't think I'll be able to sleep for the rest of this trip... haha

    ... you as far as it would in France or Germany.

    For the latter part of the way south the road hugged the foggy coast and rose and dropped beautifully into a significant city named La Serena. There we turned inland and climbed upward into the Elqui Valley.

    Elqui still has a generally desert climate but the vineyards in the main valley and side valleys are watered by runoff from the Andes. And spectacular valleys they are! I love the ...
