Valparaíso en español (Parte Dos) Posted by on May 9, 2018 in Videos

Valparaíso – or Valpo for short – is a colorful, bohemian city on the coast of Chile. The city throws one of the biggest New Year’s Eve parties in the world with a huge fireworks display. After that wild night out, you’ll want some good hangover food and a beach to lay on. You can find both of those here as well!

¡Feliz año nuevo!

Check out Part Two to see what the crazy Año Nuevo party looks like. You’ll also learn about Valpo’s interesting hangover cure and check out the beach in Viña del Mar:

Valparaíso es un lugar muy popular para festejar el año nuevo. Millones de personas vienen exclusivamente a eso.

A medianoche, hay una muestra gigantesca de fuegos artificiales que recorren la bahía.

La fiesta sigue toda la noche, mientras la gente bebe, canta y baila hasta que el sol sale.

Cuando despiertes, necesitas probar la especialidad – chorrillana – que consiste en una base de papas fritas y cubierta en carne salteada, huevos revueltos, cebolla frita y aveces queso o crema ácida.

Te recomendamos acompañarlo con un “terremoto”, que debe su nombre a la mezcla que contiene pipeño (vino fresco), fernet y helado de piña. 

Puedes tomar un bus a Viña del Mar en la tarde. Es llamada la ciudad jardín ya que es un destino turístico muy popular y reconocido por su belleza. Hay muchas playas donde puedes relajarte.

    Wish the sound quality was better, but thanks for the effort.

    • sasha:

      @Ricarrdo Yeah sorry the audio isn’t amazing. We only had one chance to meet and record this when I was visiting Santiago and the space didn’t have the best acoustics. Hopefully for the next few series on Torres del Paine and San Pedro de Atacama we’ll have better audio as she’s going to record it herself and send it to me.
