I’ve fallen way behind in the blog world. So many posts, so little time…oh wait, I’m on vacation! It’s a rainy day here in Lanco, Chile (and the entire XIV, IX and X Regions) so I’m taking advantage of the time to watch E! (or any TV, for that matter, since I don’t have TV at home) and write some blog posts.
First up, we have Valparaiso. I’ve been there a few times, but since a friend and her mom were visiting last week, I decided to tag along. We did some things that I’d never done before, so I consider it a successful trip.
We walked through the Museo al Cielo Abierto, which is an open air museum of murals. A lot of them have been vandalized and some need to be re-painted because they’ve faded over the almost 20 years they’ve been displayed. Despite that, Valpo is an extremely colorful city, so it was fun nonetheless. We ended up at Pablo Neruda’s house La Sebastiana for some beautiful views of the port, then went back down to “the plan” (aka the flat part of Valpo) and stumbled across a special exhibit of Guayasamin in the basement of the Art Museum. Then we ate a late lunch near the pier and headed back to Santiago.
Here are some shots from the day:
