Hello from La Serena!

We took a 14 hour bus ride  a couple days a go to get to the Mining town of Chile.  There wasnt much there. No sight of the infamous mine which captured the world's headlines. I can tell you the town is very much in a desert.  Montains compliment the landscape.  The sunsets are uncomparable in the desert.  The sunset over the Egyptian pyramids was similar to the one here over the rocky dessert mountains; beautiful.

Yesterday may have been one of the most enjoyable days I've had in a long time.  Jess and I walked.  There is a Spanish city to the south. We had no idea where or how long it would take to get there.  After a KFC lunch featuring the famous Mr. Bieber on the packaging, we just started walking. Four hours in total.  A large german shepperd decided to join us.  He walked beside us over bridges, along railway tracks on beaches, through parking lots et cetera et cetera. I named the companion seeking dog; Steve.  Eventually we found the city after seeking direction from locals. The city wasnt the best part. The jounrney getting there was!

Vina del Mar tomorrow! I believe an Observatory is in the works tonight to see the milky way, which you can see in some places here!  Question, can you see the milky way by the naked eye in Ontario?  Love the comments!
