Chile Revisited

Just finished posting pictures from my trip to Chile back in March, and it brought back lots of pleasant memories. My time in Valparaíso was basically a re-creation of my visit there 3 1/2 years earlier, and I’d love to do it yet again. Wandering around taking pictures left me with some serious déjà vu a couple times, and I even ran into some of the (now much-faded) graffiti/art I took pictures of last time. The woman who runs the hostel where I stayed tried to convince me to go somewhere else (I realized that when you’re staying somewhere “nice” they assume you want nicer restaurants, etc.), but I went back to the same market for a seafood lunch (though I tried a different restaurant this time) and it was just as good as I remembered.

My relaxation time at the beach was also incredible. It’s been a long time since I was really on “vacation,” as opposed to traveling to see things, or running around visiting people, and it was great – I didn’t even get bored as I sometimes do when there’s “nothing” to do. Maybe I’m finally learning to slow down and appreciate those rare moments of solitude and beauty.
