Cities by the Sea

DAY 7:ย 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 ๐Ÿ™‚

If we had a band this would SO be our album cover


You pick which fruits you want and
they make it right in front of you



Valparaiso has 15 ascensores that were built between 1883 and 1916. These “elevators” lead up into the hills and

meanderingย back alleys of the city.

Later that night, we took a taxi to Viรฑa del Mar and checked into our next hostel.

DAY 8:ย This day wasย supposedย 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. Viรฑa del Mar definitely seemed a lot more touristy than the other places we had visited. We still enjoyed ourselves though ๐Ÿ™‚

This lovely lunch of salmon, mashed potatoes, freshly squeezed peach juice, and dessert cost me about $5 US dollars. Score!


Nos vemos!
