Mind blowing art abound. What a vibrant and youthful place. Myriad of colors everywhere, it's inescapable. Kind locals and delicious sweets. Walking through the hills and narrow streets, through pulsating labyrinths of culture, this is Valparaiso. Life changing experience.

We couldn't help but think of Macau, Portugal, as we walked these streets - incredible facades of European past, not all of the. Well maintained, but some in immaculate condition. The Santander main building is stunning, better inside than out, evidence of centuries of past...More
