While sitting enjoying breakfast we came to the corporate decision we would visit Valparasio on the way to Santiago, as it turns out I wish we had time to stay there as well

on the road again

they drilled a hole through the mountain to eliminate about 2 hours off the trip but oh how it hurts the pocket book

arriving in Valparasio

but it's not buildings that make a city by themselves, the people count for a lot, the people here are friendly, happy, easy going. A good description for Valparasio is it's a happy contented city

having lunch this little guy showed lots of interest in my helmet so I put it on him

everybody around thought that was great so I had to have my picture taken with all their hats

here's a goof that should have refused this offer

this one not so bad

the Dad asked if he could take his sons picture on the bikes

and Guillarmo doing his bit for public relations

here's two really good friends, one speaks no english the other no spanish but they get along fine

once again: heading to Santiago!
