Day out in Valparaiso

Day out in Valparaiso

Valparaiso is the biggest port in Chile, so the road from Santiago is dual-carriageway all the way. Took just one and a half hours by luxury bus.

It’s a busy working city and World Heritage Centre all thrown in together. Exhilarating but also very tiring. Famous old ascensores (elevators) take you to the Bohemian hill areas full of painted houses, edgy murals and intriguing alleyways.

And from every view point there’s the Pacific Ocean which we hadn’t seen for years; Hilary some 27 years ago, Roger some 31! Too long and sums up why we are travelling.
