I'm currently at the Antofagasta airport, preparing to embark on the 24+ hour journey to my next destination. It's been an amazing past few days, and I couldn't think of a better way to say goodbye to this wonderful country.

The conference was such a positive experience overall. Each speaker brought something different to the table, and I learned a lot about light, design and policy.
|For the conference, I had the opportunity to stay here, at the dorms for APEX (ESOs submilimeter scope in the ALMA neighborhood). Really nice place with a beautiful view!|
|Building Solar System models. We also had pictures of the sizes and distances to scale, so as not to give misinformation about the scale of our Solar System.|
