What will I encounter in Sutherland, the coldest town of South Africa? In the Atacama Desert in Chile? In the forests of Australia's Blue Mountains? After my return from each journey, a series of images will be published in the respective 'Observatory'-section of this website. The journey to McDonald / Fort Davis is scheduled for early 2015.
