Me, My Parents, Viña & Valpo
And don’t even think of going all grammar police on me.
A quick post with pictures, before they kick us out of the lobby for using all the internet (joking, I hope).
Thursday in Viña
Having brought a run of cloudy, foggy, misty and cool weather with them, and with Joel and Cecile both sic, we decided to stay close to home the first day. We walked around and saw some if the basic sights in Viña, including the flower clock and street dogs.
I call the above picture Still Life with Street Dog, Pigeons and Rodin Sculpture.
Apparently the WordPress iOS app has decided its going to screw up the sizing of pictures, so sorry if they don’t look so good. And yes, I’m doing this post on the iPad.
Friday in Valpo
Still cloudy cool misty and foggy and Joel and Cecile on the mend but still not wishing to join us, so we headed to Valpo and ended up taking almost the same route we had when the three of us went a few weeks ago. Saw the Cochrane museum again, large container ships being loaded and unloaded (laded?) and the Museo del Bellas Artes.
Pictures in and around the museum
That last picture is of the famous statue if Mercury atop the El Mercurio building in downtown Valpo; El Mercurio is I believe the oldest newspaper in continuous circulation in South America and the building is beautiful. I also read the newspaper online sometimes.
Saturday at the Fish Docks in Valparaiso
Today all five us went to the fish docks in Valpo for lunch. After we ate we saw the sea lions and sea birds being fed by the fishermen getting rid of the unused portions of their catch.
There’s a video on Facebook (if you’re my friend, and if you’re not, what’s wrong with you?) and I’ll try and get something up on YouTube eventually. BTW I’ve started a YouTube playlist of my Chile videos if you want to subscribe to that to make sure you don’t miss any of them. It’s here: http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLEqqRn0CNjQcez5o-9P1ELiGt6YpvR91K
Thanks for reading, will post again when possible
