Stargazing

... where we were, it was the worst possible thing for star gazing because it made the stars harder to see.

We headed straight up to the telescope in the dome and were a bit surprised to find out that all the 'stars' (which include planets and moons) were recorded with GPS coordinates. By punching a code into a keypad, the telescope would automatically rotate and adjust it's viewing angle to be perfectly aligned with the star.

... you will wish your bed was a lifesize tub of Nivea, and when the wind blows grains of sand will lodge themselves into every exposed crevice of your body. Despite the uncomfortable temperatures and the moistureless air, I loved this place. The town is delightful and it is surrounded by spectacular things to see.

The Valle de la Luna and Valle de la Muerte are some such places just outside San Pedro, valleys of vast sand dunes, caves and ...

... private observatories were where the real research happened. As such, our tour itself was not super informative. We observed a few constellations that the guide chose through a telescope and he demonstrated where some of the basic constellations in the southern hemisphere could be observed. The most amazing thing about the tour was just the stars themselves, evident to the naked eye. The phrase ' a blanket of stars' doesn't begin to ...

After finding a shop near the bus terminal who would store our bags, we charnged all of our Bolivianios to Chilean Pesos, organized our phones with new SIM cards, ate lunch, bought bus tickets and snacks for an 8pm departure toward the random beach town of La Serena that we chose to be our first real Chilean spot to get to know.
