Where it falls short in its fifties montage is in its distinct lack of leather jackets, ...
I had a great day on my first tour. There was 8 of us...one Australian and seven Portugese! Ironically it was a tour run through the Spanish School I will be going to but I didn't know that at the time of booking. The first stop was Pablo Neruda's house in Valparaiso. It was amazing...built with views of the water and the hill so as not to miss anything. Apparently he had 3 houses and that was his worse house! He was a poet who win the 1971 ...
