Flag of Chile  ,
Saturday, February 23, 2013

There is not much to write about Valparaiso except the amazing street graffiti.  The graffiti in Valparaiso was not tags, but art, but yeah, there are tags but nobody cares about those.  It's those murals that people stop and look at and those are all over.  Another thing that is all over are dogs.  Dogs, dogs, dogs....they're all over the place.  Latinos don't pay for the dog pound, I guess they don't believe in it.  Another thing they don't believe in is getting their dogs neutered, so every once in a while you will see dogs mating in the street.  If you love dogs, Valparaiso is the place to be.  

BMX crazy street race called Red Bull Cerro Abajo.  If you want to see it, search it up on YouTube, but here is what is was like. There were big jumps, some had a really big gap and there were walls that you went off of and it was all down hill.  The crazy thing was they went down stairs and this was on the streets of Valparaiso.  One last things and this is why the name is "Chile"  - It's because the water was so cold!  Put the tap on full cold for 30 seconds and there you have it.  Oh, and one more thing.  We just about got mugged on the street.  The story:  When we were walking we saw some teens come up behind us.  One guy started to say, "money, money money" and picked up a pebble.  I thought he found money, but no he said the same thing, then ran up and grabbed our bag.  Luckily my dad had a strap on it and then my dad turned around and they all fled.

The BMX race is amazing. We watched it on you tube. You are so lucky that you got to see it. Kambal and Jeromi thought it was pretty cool.
