Valparaiso is a beatiful town/city just two hours away from Santiago. It has lots of hill and little buildings that scale the hills. At night it is a mass of fairy lights, just beautiful. Dan and I have spent a few days here and are off tomorrow to Argentina; and so, in this small internet cafe at the top of a winedy hill, it falls on me to attempt to sum up this town to you, our amigos (thats friend in spanish, getting rather good at this)
Valparaiso is a very tricky place name to remember. On the bus here I had to keep asking Dan, "Where are we going again?".... before drifting off in to a deep sleep, after all is was the afternoon and the middle of the night in OZ PLUS it is very difficult to stay awake at all on buses now as am used to taking night buses so the motion rocks me to sleep....
This town is very European and full of Artesans. There is fantastic grafetti everywhere, or rather adorned walls that really give this old historic town a sense of life and youth! We have enjoyed walking around, being entised around the corner of this bendy pictuesque place.
