I totally love Valparaiso. Full of colour, character and grunge.
Most of the cities houses are built on the steep hills that look over the port. These houses are accessed by a spaghetti of steep, windy and in many case extremely narrow streets and alley-ways. This does not phase bus and taxi drivers who hoon down at a rate of knots.
Apart from relaxing (our unit is flash compared to our normal accommodation) most of our time has been spent exploring these many alleys and stairways. Some of the hills are climbed using 'asensores', lifts which take you up the hills. Feel free to google this city and get a sense of what we are eperienencing. We will definitely be back here again!!
