Our family has a small rural vacation home in a place called Underburg in the Drakensburg in South Africa,when I return to visit my family I cant wait to do this …..

Between 10 and 12 at night, when it is cold out, we wrap ourselves in blankets and go and lay on the grass with everything in darkness. If you look up at the sky the view is amazing! Because we are hundreds of miles away from any big towns or cities, the stars and brilliantly blazing and there are billions visible, [B][I]but the best thing is looking up at the Milky Way[/I][/B]. We lay in silence, with maybe a comment here or there just staring at the wonder of it all. I have no particular knowledge of stars or anything like that, but it it is one of the most AWSOME things i have ever seen.
