In the heart of the mythical Elqui Valley in Pisco, surrounded by the Andes Mountains, 500km north of Santiago in central Chile, lies a magical place that allows for star-spangled dreams beneath the clear pure sky. Combining stargazing and specialized astronomic tours with night-time horseback riding, meditation and even tarot readings, Elqui Domos is a hotel quite like no other.
It was completed in 2005 to fulfil its owners’ desire to observe and enjoy the grandeur of the one of the world’s most star-filled skies. It is one of only seven astronomic hotels around the world and the only one in the Southern Hemisphere, offering breathtaking views of the magic skies draped over the Elqui Valley (the valley is renowned for its sharp, clear skies, as it happens to sit under one of the clearest atmospheres in the world). The lack of rain and pleasant weather all year round set the perfect conditions for astronomic tourism, where guests can gather to enjoy a unique chance to liaise with the stars.
I’m pretty damn blessed to have some people in my life. There are just some people you can see sticking around to gossip and laugh and vent with until you’re wrinkled and grey-haired. I’m not sure how I got so lucky, but things just have a funny way of working out.
And I can live with that.
The 36th Annual Samahang Pilipino Cultural Night: “Embrace”
Check out the newly released trailer (courtesy of our lovely PR Coordinators!) for this year’s SPCN! The show is right around the corner, and we’d love for you to join us at Royce Hall this May 25th!
My heart might actually explode from all the love I have for this year’s cast. One more week!
Excuse me while I blanket burrito myself into the space between the wall and my bed.
