As promised, our first gallery of street art from Valparaíso in Chile. We only spent one day in Valpo (as the locals call it), and it wasn’t the best day in a few aspects: most funiculars weren’t working, which made getting up and down the city’s steep hills rather an exhausting exercise (in the true sense of the word), and it was overcast and grey most of the day, with a cold wind blowing from the Pacific. Our main reason for visiting was to celebrate Yasha’s birthday, about which she has published a separate post .
I have more photos for a second gallery later on…
