Valpariso and Santiago

What to say about valpariso? It's really hilly and plastered with graffiti and now that I think about it, one of the coolest looking city's in SA. Had a couple of very enjoyable duvet days while we were there and a couple of big nights out on the town throwing some impressive shapes. Other than that, not a great deal to report in terms of interesting activities.

Santiago the second time around was kind of weird. Only because it was a national holiday so the entire city was on shut down, and as there were some riots near by to where we were staying there was a cop on every street corner. The night we spent there was spent getting shitted in the hostel and playing a combination of ping pong, pool and table football. Cool hostel! The next day Kate went off to do the walking tour while I nursed a hangover then that evening we went off to grab a meal and try a terrimoto (translates to earthquake) which is an icecream based drink that makes you feel like your in an earthquake when you try to stand up after drinking it!

The most impressive thing to report about santaigo was the bus ride to Mendoza in Chile as the ride goes through the most spectacular mountain range which when lite up at night looked astonding. I didn't bother watching any films or trying to sleep as the view was so impressive. Some people say that you should do that route in the day as the view is so impressive, but if you can stay awake I think it's probably more spectacular at night.

Arrived in Mendoza shattered so went straight to sleeeeeepppppp zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
