I miss Valparaiso. It was cheerful, sunny, and warm. I know I whined about stray dogs, poop on the street, and the garbage, but it was a really lovely place, especially upon Cerro Bella Vista at Plaza Mena.
Let me list the ways;
The city has many hills to hike and alleys to wander.
It is on a bay by the Pacific
The harbor has fog horns and the ships signal with them.
Its an old port city that was once very prosperous before the Panama Canal was opened.
Its got flavor and is a bit edgy like NYC was in the 70’s
We could make a Noir spy movie there, wouldn’t that be bacan?
A mi me encanta Valparaiso.
