I know I could never live in Valparaíso. First of all, the only thing preventing me from getting terribly lost in Santiago is that most streets are on a grid system. In Valpo, there are the cerros and windy streets and staircases and elevators and it’s just plain confusing. Second of all, I hate walking up hill. Yes, I am LAZY. Make me walk on flat ground and I can go forever. Put in a hill and I’ll be winded after two minutes.
That being said, I never get tired of taking pictures in Valpo. It definitely has way more character than Santiago. Here are some I snapped on my last visit.
