Wooden churches listed as the World Heritage

Miranda

[ Dec.2015 ] The main attraction in Chiloe Island in Chile is the wooden churches which are listed in the UNESCO’s World Heritage. That was what I had heard, so I had imagined something like the ones in Romania which had a refind atmosphere. But the ones here were different. It may not be a …

In Chacao

Miranda

[ Dec.2015 ] The place we arrived at by ferry in Chiloe Island was a small town called Chacao. Our tour leader suggested to walk along the esplanade on the sea first, saying “they spent a lot of money on this”. Here on the esplanade, there were some boards introducing the island’s legends. One was …

Staircases are canvas

Miranda

[ Dec.2015 ] We found this staircase on the way down to Plaza Victoria from Bellavista Hill in Valparaiso in Chile. It was so lovely. Every step had the intricate picture. There was a colourful staircase on Concepcion Hill as well. Chilean people seem to think that staircases are canvas. Later in the tour, we …

About Neruda

Miranda

[ Dec.2015 ] This photo is the house of Neruda in Valparaiso in Chile. Now it is a museum. Unfortunately we did not have time to look inside, but this is one of the tourist attractions in this town. Neruda was a genius who started writing poems at the age of 10. He was also …

Very colourful

Miranda

[ Dec.2015 ] We took another ‘lift’ this time to go up to the Concepcion Hill in Valparaiso in Chile. Here I found the colourful light hearted atmosphere which I had read in the guide book. People here seemed not satisfied with those colourful houses and they must be feeling that they should not leave …
