This is in Valparaiso, Chile. Probably my favorite city that I was able to visit. There is a soccer team on the sand practicing, and the beach goes parallel to the city on and off the entire way. It is also reffered to as the city of poets and has an old town kind of feel in the southern part while the northern is called Vina Del Mar is very new and definitly a focuse on tourists and night life. Pretty hard to beat living in a place like this
Watching the sunset by a stream which was the only fresh water source for a section of the coastline. Having to plan out your hike with fresh water access and with the changing tides makes for a more slow paced hiking experience but just gives you more time to enjoy everything smelling, looking, feeling, and sounding so great!
During this hike we found TONS of trash on the beach. Despite the fact that beaches are a widely known place to be extremely polluted from all ocean going crud, most of the things we found while on this 5 day hike on the beach were of Japanese origin. Toys, lighbulbs, wrapers, etc. makes you wonder how much of it were from the tragic tsunami and earthquake. Makes you think of how we are all connected no matter how far away we are whether we notice it from looking at the same moon every night or finding trash on a beach.
Hiking down what turned out to be one of the sketchiest trails I have ever set foot on with several hundred foot drops off the side and loose gravel and rock being the most secure footing to be found for certain sections this whole time with the sun setting and not everyone in our group having headlamps!
