In 2003 the historic quarter of Valparaiso was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site for its culture and architecture, including its old lifts. With its colorful houses, cobbled streets, diverse street art and great views from the hills, I could walk its streets during hours.
Dear Barcelona, I have met someone that reminds me of you. Its name is Santiago. Or rather, I should say that Santiago reminded me of you at first sight.
