Southern hemisphere at last!

I've been away in Brazil this last week (I get to travel with work), we're doing some work with a shipyard south of Sao Paulo, at about -23.8 deg and 48deg W. This is the first time i've been in the southern hemisphere.

And guessed it - it was mostly cloudy at night (the astronomer's curse strikes again). I did get to see Sirius directly overhead on Thursday night, but no southern Milky Way or Magellanic clouds.
