Left and Leaving

an alternative travel blog



Northern Chile

The final death throes of our visit were spent awing once again at the Large Magellanic Cloud, a galaxy of a billions of suns orbiting our Milky Way, 130,000 light years away. To put that into perspective, anyone in that galaxy peering back through a telescope at us on that night, would have seen a primitive mankind yet to leave Africa, and watched Neanderthals still roaming the plains.


No two buildings alike, narrow pathways weave and unravel like animated veins, music from high windows tunnels by, spices fill the breeze, did I follow the second star on the right and straight on till morning?!
