Valparaiso - Day 49

More stunning street art

20 °C

I knew it would be a good day as Andrew made pancakes for breakfast and they were delicious! It was quite a cold day so we headed out for some more sightseeing. Today we went to an area called Polanco, which held a street exhibition earlier in the year, I believe, where people painted the houses in the area and the art has been left there. We were told not to go there late as it's not the best area, as you may tell from some of the pictures below, but we were fine there in the day and there were other tourists around taking pictures. We had to go up a vertical ascensor to get the top though, which had a see through floor once we were up there - not a fan! I think the view would have been fantastic had we have had a clear day.

We were here to see the art work though and I thought some of it was amazing

We then took the tram down to the port and walked to the ascensor there. It was so rickety! There were some little stalls up there and the view was good too. Andrew was mesmerised watching the containers being moved around?!

We finished the day, in one of the pubs near the port that sailors used to visit, with a cold Valparaiso-made beer
