The rustic and idiosyncratic streets of the Chilean port city Valparaíso weave uphill and down cloaked in the whimsical and fanciful imaginings of numerous street artists. This is not just a graffiti-clad town, but a vast open-air gallery of of astounding works of art reflecting Chile's culture and heritage in a rainbow of colours.
The capital of Chile, Santiago, is a city that hums with the colorful life of about one-third of Chile's entire population, over seven million people. Street dogs wear cute little doggy coats, murals of street art are splashed over buildings, riding a bicycle doesn't mean you will get run over, and Uber is illegal, but everyone still uses it.
A somewhat a sobering slap in the face for some, a visit to the township of Khayelitsha near Cape Town with Juma is an enlightening look at what apartheid has done to South Africa. Join Gail in her continuing travels through the southern parts of Africa.
Synonymous with art and creativity, the area of Woodstock in Cape Town is one of the most vibrant and exciting neighbourhoods in the city.
