|Valparaiso photos from March 2005
Don and Lois Porter
Another group of selected photos from our adventures in Valparaiso. We had read that the Tricahue parrots ( Cyanoliseus patagonus byroni, the largest parrot in Chile, on the endangered list) were residents in a park (Plazoleta Carvallo) near us in Playa Ancha, but our attempts to locate them had failed. Then one day, as we were taking one of our frequent strolls along Ave. Altamirana, we decided to climb up to a different area, and there they were. It turned out they were exactly where they were supposed to be. We visited them several times, early morning and at sunset. Another morning we visited Caleta Portales, one of the working fishermen’s quays in town. The fishermen had brought in all their boats and were cleaning and selling fish and working on nets. Then we walked back to downtown Valparaiso along the shore.
