    Valparaiso: a city of many hills and colours

    A short drive to the coast is the seaside city of Valparaiso, Chile's second biggest. It is a charming place set between the mountains and the Pacific Ocean with a bohemian, and somewhat edgy feel to it. It could not be further removed from the clean, well kept and orderly nature of Santiago. The highlights of Valparaiso are its many cerros (hills …

    ... Neruda I was pleasantly surprised by his story, his house and even more so by his poetry. I instantly became a fan.

    ... clean and very tidy city, especially when compared with where we had just come from. Efficient metro system versus 60 year old trolleys and even older ascensors, well-maintained and manicured Santa Lucia Park with spacious viewpoints versus empty lot with large-breasted blue woman painted on wall, tree-lined bohemian neighbourhood of Lastarria versus the street near the docks where people violently chop fish into small pieces.

    Incredibly sad to be leaving Santiago, we set off for Valparaiso, a city on the coast, north-west of Santiago.

    We arrived at the bus station in the early evening and set off to find the hostel. As we always book the cheapest hostel, we´re by now quite used to navigating around some dodgy looking areas, however this seemed to be one of the worst so far.
