The sea and Homer Simpson

Viña del Mar, Chile

sunny 30 °C

From Valparaiso, we hopped on a new train (very modern and clean I must say) 15 minutes along the Coast, to VIÑA DEL MAR (also known as the GARDEN CITY). It is a city beach resort but a great place for Brel to soak his sticky hot body.... as I watched, paranoid that our stuff would disappear if I dared go for a dip.

It's of on the Pacific coast of course and therefore a dangerous sea. But Brel has become a pro and knows how to deal with these crazy waves...

I loved these little houses that seemed to go right in the water-

And sculptures encountered along the way to promote the upcoming Telethon (a huge deal here all over Chile). vi_a_hands.jpg

Too cool...

And a beautiful view on our walk back to the metro-

Crazy trees encountered along the way (entirely covered in Vines). Really gorgeous. Viña is famous for its beautiful gardens, palm trees, flowers ...

And Brel finally met up with one of his heroes...

Apres avoir plonge a Renaca,
tu plongeras partout.
Cet plage est reconnu pour
etre abrupte et violent!
Elle est tout petite et mignone
mais ce la plus respecte a la bagnade
plein de monde vont la pour prende le soleil plutot que se bagner sauf les plus ossées.
Mon delfin du pacific
je t'adore
