Today, I went to an area in Valparaiso known for its street art and could hardly believe what worlds the walls held. I'll let the pieces speak for themselves.

The imaginations of Valparaiso

As it turns out, I don’t have an ass of steel at the end of day two in Valparaiso. I have an ass of jelly and I have legs of jelly. Yesterday I walked, and walked and walked and walked. And then I went for a run. Today I walked, and walked and walked. And then I went for a run. And now, I am done. Me and my jelly bum are done.

But what a reward today’s sights were. I went to an area known for its street art and could hardly believe what worlds the walls held. I could try and describe them all, but I think perhaps my brain has turned to jelly too, and so I will let the pieces speak for themselves.

And then, as I was walking home, there he was, painting his sunflowers beneath a starry night.

Tomorrow, I give my bum and legs a break as I head eight hours north to the city of La Serena. My CouchSurfing requests have yielded no responses, and I have not booked any accommodation as back up, but I know that things will fall into place when I get there. Somehow.
