Valpariso - the Stock Market

  In Valpariso there are 16 elevators or funiculars built in the 1800's.  Only six are still working but we rode up the hill on the big one overlooking the port.  From the top we took a video of the bustling port.  At ground level there is a stock exchange, the Bolsa.  As the stocks go up and down, so do the elevators.  While some things are very expensive here, these elevator rides only cost 300 pesos, or about .60 cents each so they are a bargain.
