Few days later

I have been in San Pedro for now nearly a week. The town is very animated, it's the peak of the tourist season, and is populated by wealthy Americans and Europeans that have already seen the rest of the world and slightly anachronistic hippies here "to feel" the mysticism of the place.
Yesterday I went up to the telescope site (Cerro Toco). As you can see from the pictures I posted on flickr the concrete work is practically finished. The Telescope was supposed to leave the port of Antofagasta this Friday and arrive at the site on Monday but it has been delayed, it will actually leave on Monday. It's fairly large load and in a few places along the road power and other utility lines have to be either lifted of removed.
