Valparaiso and Santiago, Chile

Valparaiso sits on a bunch of hills overlooking the Pacific ocean. It’s not unlike San Francisco in that way.


Pablo Neruda’s house in Isla Negra is full of his collections. Here are some of his glass knick-knacks.

Cerro Santa Lucia (a park) offers great views of the Santiago skyline and a place for making out couples to fulfill their exhibitionistic tendencies.

    Jules, that restaurant is called Los Vikingos. Everything on the menu has the word “viking” in it. Viking ceviche, viking hamburguesa, viking vino. The furniture is covered in faux fur and horned helmets are everywhere. I don’t know what the connection between Vikings and Santiago is, but the restaurant was hilarious.
