Street art: Sao Paulo, Valparaiso, Bogota
Three cities in three countries. Sao Paulo, Valparaiso, and Bogota. All have something in common – street art. Now I’m not an expert on this subject. I don’t even know the difference between graffiti, mural, street art, and urban art. But I like free and I like art so there’s that. And when the morning came, I put on my shoes and started walking.
It’s 2:45 when I peek at the clock. I’ve been watching it for 13 minutes, not really needing to set it anymore because my body is already familiar with this sequence but I still do anyway. I let the soft alarm went off for 3 seconds then I press dismiss. I listen a few more seconds waiting for signs anyone is awake but all I hear is a soft hum from I don’t know where so I move the sheets aside and make my way down, the bed squeaking a bit.
Arica: Lauca National Park
If you find yourself in the northernmost part of Chile – Arica – and you have the time then I suggest to go see Lauca National Park. It’s quite interesting to find communities in the altiplano where it’s cold, dry, high, and surrounded by volcanoes. But it’s beautiful especially Chungara Lake.
