    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.

    ... must pay a $160 reciprocity fee because that is what the US charges Chileans when they enter our country. There are 4 other countries that must pay such a reciprocity fee: Canada, Mexico, Australia and… Albania! Go figure. The prices here are between those of Peru and the US.
    I have a host, my friend Tona, here in Valparaiso and she and her best friend Pancho have been wonderful company and great guides as well. ...

    ... and listened to the music. It was mediocre but nice to have some live music. As more people arrived, everyone started to socialize a bit and we all got up to take a photo together. This really ****** off the musicians, apparently they wanted our 100% undivided attention, in complete silence. They got up, threw their drink on the ground and made a ridiculous statement about our behaviour causing the war in the middle east....they stormed ...
