We decided to stay here in preference to another 2 nights in Santiago. We like the sea, we’d heard about the liveliness of the city and we thought it would provide a rest before the journey home. It’s been a busy time.
Unfortunately our luggage was lost between Cusco and Santiago airport. So our late arrival turned into an even later night. Luckily for us our booked driver Carlos waited and we finally got to Valparaiso at about 2am!
Needless to say we washed the smalls!
Our hotel is beautiful and overlooks the big harbour.
We took to the streets in our only clothes and didn’t stop all day. It’s a vibrant, slightly grungy, dynamic, friendly and extremely colourful city.
Graffiti is everywhere. The city is well know for it.
I loved it.
we went on the trolley bus, the funicular, we walked we took a walking tour and finally at 6pm we sat with a gorgeous view
Then dinner and a funny night which included me dancing in the street and singing at a bar with some Germans!
