This must have been the most ordinary and actually boring week during the trip. We came to Chile for a short visit last tuesday and we´re gonna take off tomorrow morning. During five days or so we´ve seen maybe three movies, two boring cities and one amazing observatory. That wasn´t boring but a lot of work though.
So we actually returned here to go to the Paranal observatory near Antofagasta. I made 3 stories for YLE and Satu is writing article to newspaper right now. I should also be working but my work files don´t open... Frustrating at least.
I can´t really remember what happened after the last blog. At least few changes to plans. First we thought that we´ll go to San Pedro De atacama. We skipped it and went to Argentina in stead. Salta was nice and beatifull town. Then we headed up to Antofagasta that wasn´t. Now we´re in Arica wich way possibly is worse than Kerava and Korso combined. The whole centre looks like some grazy soviet architect would have been set loose. On the way to here from Antofagasta we propably passed the weird statue in the picture. It was dark so I can´t tell.
Luckily tomorrow we´re gonna be in Bolivia again. It´s gonna feel so cheap all over again! And we´re gonna head up to mountains, jungle and then to Lake Titicaca and Peru. So much to wait for.
Oh yeah, the Paranal observatory definately was a weird place. A top class observatory in the midle of desert. I was just disappointed with the star sky. In the pictures you see all the stars you´ve ever seen and so much more. We were there at full moon... Gotta go back, it seems.
