Bucket list item #1

I have always thought it would be interesting to see the stars in the other sky, though until I became a fan of Anthony Bourdain, there was never any Southern Hemisphere destination that particularly appealed to me. Now I think it would be quite nice to visit Melbourne or Montevideo or Buenos Aires. When my dad was a boy, my grandparents took the family to Lima for a year, but that’s practically equatorial. I find the notion of the extremes more intriguing, with the lopsided daylight/darkness ratios—as long as it’s long daylight!

There would also be penguins.

    if you go south enough for penguins you might be south enough for aurora australis too.
