We then had a cleansing beer, just sitting and looking over the water.It was a beautiful day, clear sunny skies with temperature reaching about 30.
At this stage I have already taken about 60 photos.
We now venture on to Valparaiso. This city is world heritage listed because of its unique architecture, with a mish mash of different styles. Very colourful, but also quite disturbing see the shanty town housing that surrounds the city, however the place has its own beauty and is a fascinating place to visit.
We spent most of our time out of the main city and walked the back streets up the hill a little.
We did need a little drink so we stopped at a restaurant and had a nice cold beer looking over Valparaiso and Vina del Mar.
We returned to Santiago in the evening. It was a spectacular sight driving into the City with a rare clear sky and the Sun shining on the Andes. The colour was magnificent
Later that night we went Jorge's home to meet the whole family and had a nice BBQ.
Again we had lots of Pisco, beer and wine.
It was a nice night we returned to bed at about 2.am.
