I may attend the Southern Skies Star Party in July, 2012. The star party is at Lake Titicaca in Bolivia, South America. It is at a high elevation in the Andes Mountains. It will be winter in Bolivia, and clear skies are a given. I planned to go to Chile in the 90s. It never happened, so a Bolivia trip years later will compensate. I will be with astronomy people the entire week, and that is what I want. While some are losing their minds over the Mayan calendar and fictitious end of the world, I will be in the land of the Incas enjoying the southern constellations, Magellanic Clouds, Coalsack and my favorite star: Achernar!

A former friend used to promise to go skiing during the summer in North America in South America, but the punk got married, had kids, and is a slave to the system.
