Valparaiso - The wall

Location : Pacific, Ecuador Coast - 00 23 S, 083 09 W

Valparaiso really is a beautiful city. It was one of the oldest cities to be settled in the country of Chile and the neat thing about it is that as it was settled, people from all over Europe came to the city and built houses in the style of their
country. So you have French Shotgun houses nestled right besides a British country home. One great thing I like about the city was the huge variety if Graffiti on display. You had the more standard ones with weird font letters like the ones you usually
see in the US to some really beautiful paintings done up on the wall.

The snap above is on one such wall I pass on the way to lunch as we went walking on the cobbled roads.

PS: As you can see from the position, I am now 23 miles from the equator so should be passing the big line in a couple of hours.
