A leisurely trip back to our hostel and an evening of drinks and bantering with others at the hostel.
Anyway, tomorrow sees us move on out to the coast to Valpasaiso and Vina del Mar.. looking forward to the beach (Amberīs pasty white body stands out a mile) and some fabulous seafood.
Smiff & Muller
So day 2 started with a change of hotel to Hostel Bellavista and some relaxation. The afternoon sees us brave public transport out of town to the Concha y Toro winery.. yes the home of Casillo del Diablo (one of Amberīs favourite vinos). For a few pounds we had a tour of the beautiful gardens (by a fit young lady John noticed) and then down to the stuff that matters.. the tasting.. a very nice 2004 Casillo del Diablo Carmanere and them a 1998 Don Melchor.. fabulous. Final stop, the wine bar for 3 more reds and some tapas.. and our companions, a couple from Didbury (Manchester), a guy from Florida, a Londoner, 2 Belgians and 2 Brazilians.
