Valparaiso Travel Guide
West Coast web media princess, and the latest Jaunted Embed, Shira Lazar is making her way through Chile on a top secret travel mission. She will be posting daily for the next week, in hopes of creating a glorious on-the-fly travel guide using as much point oh social webbing as she can. Enjoy.
As we approached our first day in Chile’s Mediterannean heartland, Valparaiso, we left our memories of $4 non-fat, soy, triple lattes and frappucinos behind.
It was 10am on a Saturday, and we sat waiting in a booth at the charming but empty Café El Desayunador (above) for two local Valpo bloggers we’ve never met in person. Desayunador means "breakfaster" in Spanish and according to my email acquaintances, it’s pretty much the only spot that opens early and actually “does breakfast”. Most cafes just offer media lunas (sweet pastries).
