    This Hostal is pretty nice. It´s quite a steep hike to get there or down to the city - about 125 steps. The rooms were clean and they had a space heater there for us (which really came in handy). The walls were a little thin. We could hear people very clearly even though they weren´t being loud. Altogether a nice, cheery stay.

    ... too lazy to use the stairs!) Another repercussion of the strike was that these were out of action, so I could tone my legs on the many steep steps!

    I went on another free walking tour, like the one I went on in Santiago. Again, this proved a really interesting way to explore the town and learn about its history. This one was run by an enthusiastic Californian, who was very passionate about Valparaiso and Chile, where he ...

    ... the hills of Valparaiso like Tommi Makinen would a Finnish forest. Dan and I were thrown around the back of the bus, crashing into small children, expectant mothers and a couple of nuns; it was just impossible to balance with an extra fifteen kilos on our backs, but the bus was so packed, we had no space to take them off.

    Finally we arrived at the Plaza De Maria and were deposited if a heap on the floor, looking around us, ...
