Valparaiso

by Emily Benjamin

From the few photos I had seen of Valparaiso, I knew it was colourful. But it was brighter and more colourful than I could have imagined. I don’t know if the government endorses the graffiti, or maybe they’ve just given up, but it is plentiful – every corner, post, building, house and staircase seems to have been painted in the brightest paints you could find. The result is a rainbow city, difficult to navigate with its hills and winding streets. But just take one of the many funiculars up one of this hills and you can see the entire city below, and hopefully work out which direction you’re headed!
