Leaving LA

I'm writing this sat in the terminal at LA paying $0.25 per minute so this will be short. I've had a good couple of days at Pasadena/LA and I'll write a bit more about them once I get to New Zealand and can upload some images.

I got a picture of Orion from the plane while on the Canadian/U.S. border which I thought was pretty cool. I've not been able to visit the Griffith or Mt Wilson observatories because one was closed for renovation and the other was closed until April. Shame. I did get to see the original (I think) drawings of the 200 inch telescope drawn by R.W.Porter which are on the walls of the astronomy department at Caltech. They are very cool and it was great to see them in real life.

Until I reach Wellington, clear skies.
