Today I formally graduated as a Starlight Guide.
They held the ceremony at Palacio Salazar in Santa Cruz de la Palma. We had short speeches from the president of the Cabildo (the island government), the head of the Instituto de Astrofisica
(the Institute of Astrophysics) and the head of the course, and then they called us up one by one and gave us our diplomas and ID cards.
After the formal photos for the press, we all went off for lunch together.
I'd have enjoyed the whole thing a lot more if my insides had behaved a bit better, but I still had fun.
