I’ve written before about Che Lagarto Hostel in Santiago, Chile, and how I bartered photography for free nights stay in their hostel. (In their hostel I loved so much, I continued to stay there for my last 4 days, after what we contracted).
I even mentioned getting serenaded on their Valparaiso and Viña del Mar day tour they sent me on, but …
NOW I GET TO SHOW YOU THE SERENADE!
Oh yes, I did take video of Andres, the accordion playing sweetheart who tripped the light fantastic for me. I don’t even remember what I was supposed to see, because I was too enthralled with this sudden outburst of attention.
Andres, I miss you. But just so you know, watching this video now, makes me feel as happy as it did when you called me out and sang and danced like I was the only gringa tourist there.
Hope this video makes you smile like it does me.
About Dani Blanchette
I am a freelance travel and music photographer and creator of GoingNomadic.com.
I love music, food, and exploring cities without guidebooks. I’ve flown a helicopter, hitchhiked down the east coast USA, and once snuck into the back of a zoo (in Serbia) and pet a lion.
I am always up for an adventure, and sometimes I videotape them.
