I almost feel like we had a one-of-a-kind experience in Coquimbo. We took Princess' Tololo Observatory tour, an absolute highlight of our cruise. Apparently, not many groups get to visit and actually see the 4 meter telescope, located on an 8,000+ foot high, desert mountaintop. I believe it's the largest in the southern hemisphere and is conducting research on the origins of our galaxy, among other things. Remember if you're lucky enough to visit, that you get to see the telescope, not see *through* the telescope. And remember the altitude. One member of our little group needed help with altitude sickness.

We were there on a Sunday, so many things were closed or late to open. The town was walkable, but residents advised us to keep a tight hold on our belongings.
