The midget car came into its own in Valparaiso. The streets are cobbled, narrow, winding and hilly… that’s the sort of place where you really need a small car… .
We drove those narrow, winding roads in a circle searching for our accommodation with Lee telling us 5 or 6 times that we’d arrived at our destination on the left…. only to see there a building site on a street named nothing like where our hotel supposedly was. “Someone” had put the wrong address into the GPS. In my defence I suspect the GPS signal was lost when we parked underground at that supermarket 3 hours ago and Lee reset himself to the center of Valparaiso!
Once we arrived at the Hotel Boutique Acontraluz, a bed & breakfast, we were really impressed. For starters there is no parking at the hotel but the young lady at reception went out and stood in a space on the street to “save” it while I went to retrieve the manservant who was driving loops a few blocks over.
Our room was at the front of the building – 1st floor to Aussies; 2nd floor to Americans . The interior of the hotel was lovely:
There was a deck where you could have drinks in the evening – or actually any time of the day..
Once we’d checked in and deposited our stuff we went off to a restaurant recommended for its pisco sours. Good food was a side benefit 🙂
At least we ended the day on a good note!
