DAY 7: The next day we took a tour of Pablo Neruda’s house. I’ve read tons of his poems in Spanish Lit classes throughout the years, and it was really cool to see where he lived. The house was so ecceltic, and it had an awesome view.

The remainder of the day we wandered around the city, ate some empanadas in the park, got froyo and went shopping by the water, and rode more ascensores 🙂

Valparaiso has 15 ascensores that were built between 1883 and 1916. These “elevators” lead up into the hills and
meandering back alleys of the city.
DAY 8: This day was supposed to be our beach day, but the weather did not want to cooperate. We spent a lot of the day hiding from the cold in our hostel, watching YouTube videos, and chilling with our Danish roommates. We did drag ourselves outside a couple times to walk around. Viña del Mar definitely seemed a lot more touristy than the other places we had visited. We still enjoyed ourselves though 🙂
