I got back home to Southern Germany a few days ago; the promised final post from Santiago de Chile fell through due to a very questionable Empanada and, as soon as I a little felt better, the Lufthansa-strike… Interesting journey back, to say the least. Anyway, I am back home and well – already editing the material that I shot during my time in Chile. I would like to take the time to thank all the wonderful people that I met in this lovely country. People who showed me around deserts, mountains and the fantastic CTIO-observatory at Cerro Tololo, people who allowed me to be part of their lives for a short while and to photograph them. Thank you all very much.
