La Silla

This weekend, as I told you, we made a road trip and one of the main places that we visited was the ESO  La Silla observatory, This is a very beautiful place in a very arid terrain (but not as much as Paranal) and the tour is really good. If you have the chance to go, don't miss it!

Here some of the pictures of the way there:
Some flowers in the road there (there most have been some rain lately, I guess)

The colors of the mountains here are something special.

and the moon.

That's it for this week.

Next week I'll post the rest of the pictures next week.
