I used to have a friend who lived in La Serena, but she is back in the states now. Her husband worked at the observatory there and I know there is a community of lots of folks from around the world who are there for astronomy work as well: http://ow.ly/5QlT0. Looks like they don't recommend visiting in July/August (not sure why) so that could explain why you encountered a ghost town!

Are you going to Sao Paolo? If so, I have a friend there who you can meet!


Nice post. Loved the tube food shopping aisle. Today is Greg's birthday and he loathes tube food. Shall send him link.

Hi, Jodi! We have a friend of a friend who is living there, but she had JUST had a baby when we were in town, so we weren't able to hook up. I can see why July and August aren't great times to visit, though the weather was pretty nice!

No Sao Paolo this trip, unfortunately. Brazil is out of our budget and we're ready to skip continents - we head to Cape Town next Wednesday!

Ha! Did he love the tube food? I am an occasional fan of tube and tub food, myself..
