Valparaiso, Chile

Ok, i hope today i will finally manage to make an update....the past few days ive been overloaded with some work, i can freely say from dawn to dusk..even later....so its been impossible to even think of an update....
Apologies to whomever is dropping by regularly and expects to find new stuff more often...yeah, this sounds vain, i know :))) But I do hope there are people like that indeed :)
So, i hopefully will manage to make this update now, coz i have no idea what expects me tomorrow and if i wont again be stuck among documents for translation....I do like it actually...gives me a chance to get creative in order to find the right solutions and all...and frankly, i do it from home on the e-mail-to-e-mail basis which is perfect for lazy people like me....just that sometimes it is mentally exhausting and literally doesnt leave time for anything else....


Mmmmmm....i fell for this card the moment I saw it....I dont know if its due to the way the sun is reflecting on the houses, or the houses themselves have some special shades of colour...or it is both....i dont know...all i know is that due to the card's colours why this card is sooooo appealing to me....

Just one thing...i dont know why in my head i keep calling this city as Valparioso...the 3rd and 4th letter from the back somehow keep going different in my head....

Valparaiso literally means "Paradise Valley" (mmm, I like it...).
It is located in central Chile and is protected as a UNESCO whs. Built upon dozens of steep hillsides overlooking the Pacific Ocean, Valparaíso boasts a labyrinth of streets and cobblestone alleyways, embodying a rich architectural and cultural legacy.
It is as well one of the country's most important seaports and an increasingly vital cultural centre in the hemisphere's Pacific Southwest.

Valparaiso, like most of Chile, is vulnerable to earthquakes. The last major earthquake to strike Valparaiso devastated the city in 1906, killing nearly 20,000 people.

Thank You Veronika for this lovely card!

I love this card too and for me it's because of the light, indeed. It gives me the feeling I have when I'm on holidays walking around on a late summer evening.

Take your time to upload your cards. Each new card is a nice surprise for us. ;-)
