So, to get you through the weekend, here's one of the most snapped photos by tourists: Cerro Concepcion from Paseo Dimalow.

Good man yourself Matt!!! That's my bleeding photo that I uploaded to panoramio sometime ago from my last trip back home (March 2006). I lived near the Reina Victoria up to 2000. Honoured, mate!
Now, it's amazing to see Valpo through a gringo's eyes (gringo is not a bad word in Chile, you know) and I can't tell you how much I missed El Puerto.
Muchas felicitaciones,

Santiago FLORES

jeje..actually, i took the photo a couple of weeks ago! That's what i meant when i called it 'classic valparaiso'...everyone who visits the city gets this shot as it shows everything brilliant about valparaiso-the crazy architecture built into the hills, the colours, the churches and, of course, the Pacific (just about). the paseo dimalow is a beautiful spot to take a photo.
