Valpo







This weekend we left Santiago for a trip to Valparaiso, which is by bus about 1 1/2 h away. This harbor town used to be called »pearl of the pacific« and is being visited by much more tourists than Santiago itself. Unfortunately the constant lack of money caused a vast decay during the last years. But all the painted walls and houses with giant murals distract the view and give the whole town a very special character. We have never seen such a multicolored town before and took a picture almost every step we went. For coffee we had a break in a little café and were served by an old pirate..
