*Spending as much time soaking up Valparaíso, the beach, the night life, and my
friends as possible before leaving.
*Went to the Ex-Carcel ("Ex Prison"- this was Valparaiso's prison for over 100 years including during Pinochet's dictatorship. When they shut it down in 1999 it was converted into a cultural center. Artists from all over Valpo fill it with murals, statues, poetry, concerts, workshops, Mapuche manifestations, etc. It is now a very symbolic structure in terms of public spaces in Chile as well as reconstruction of collective memory),
*looked at lots of murals and graffiti,
*BBQs at Nico's grandparents' house
*getting robbed by gypsies on my way to the airport with nico, a very tearful and ridiculous goodbye...
