And Then Some News

The first paragraph of Thursday's essay, "Valparaiso and Viña del Mar I: Opposites attract," reads as follows:

From the 16th deck of our docked ship we could see the hills surrounding Valparaiso. Our first view was before daylight, and the city sparkled with its salmon-colored street lights that twinkle, glimmer, and glitter from the hills. Then, as the sun rose and bathed the hills in a warm glow, we spotted the Esmeralda, a replica of a Chilean battleship used in the War of the Pacific, when Chile fought and defeated Peru and Bolivia.
