After about two hours of driving we came to the...so said ”beautiful valley .” We were surprised at the valley and the town that was in front of us. Dust covered the trees, smog covered the sky, litter covered the ground, and dark and depressed looks covered the pedestrians’ faces in the first town we saw. We were all hungry, but we did not want to stay long in the valley and especially in the town of San Jose de Maipo. We thought that maybe a volcano had erupted near the town, and it was responsible for the surprisingly grey world. We ate a quick and gross meal of fries, fried chicken, and fried empanadas. I’ll tell you one thing, we were not coming back! After our somewhat bad experience with San Jose de Maipo, we planned on heading to a new destination.
Our new target was an oceanside town just to the west of Santiago. We drove for about three hours and came to the town of Valpraiso. This is is the home of many artists and poets, and one of the most famous Chilean poets, Pablo Naruda, once had a home here. The majority of Valpraiso is located on a steep hill over looking the ocean. We have found a cool hotel with nice people. The rooms look like a ship’s cabin, and I have my own room. I built an awesome fort and plan to sleep in it! I can’t wait!
