Valparaiso Adventure

This weekend I went to Valparaiso! Valparaiso is a city on the coast, about 2 hours away from Santiago.  It is a party town: very eclectic, colorful, at times grungy, and full of tourists - mostly Chileans on vacation.  Viña del Mar, Valparaiso's up-scale neighbor, has nice beaches about 15 minutes up the coast.

For our intensive Spanish class, we had to visit a place in or near Santiago and do a project on it.  i went with 4 other  UC girls.  We stayed in a fun funky hostel with people from France, Belgium, Finland, and Boston.  Very colorful, and very loud all night.
