Back home

OK, so my extended holiday is now over and I am back home in the UK. I had a great time visiting friends and relatives in several different countries thanks to a fairly cheap 'round the world' ticket and the generosity of the people that put me up.

I had a lot of fun in the southern hemisphere and got many great views of the southern skies. I am still amazed at how often I could see the Milky Way, even from cities such as Wellington and Adelaide. The northern hemisphere, with more people, land, and less opacity is not so lucky; in Tokyo I found it difficult to see more than a couple of stars and UK cities don't fare much better.
