Valparaiso, Chile

February 13, 2012

Valparaiso is the main port of Chile, and where our cruise ends. The name can be rendered in English as “Paradise Valley”, though it isn’t exactly a valley, lying between the Pacific and steep hills (much of the city is on these hills).


The main square and the armada of Chile.


The best thing about Valparaiso is an old neighborhood overlooking the harbor, with bright buildings and restaurants.


We rode a funicular down.


Stray dogs everywhere. Our driver suggested they should be one of the symbols of Chile.

    Bob and Larry,

    What a fantastic trip you have taken! We especially liked your photos of the voyage around Cape Horn. We await a verbal report on the whole trip when you return home.

    yrs.,
    Bill and Marcy
