If Walls Could Speak…

While describing graffiti in NYC Lorraine Wechsler stated, “Graffiti – the term comes from both the Greek term “Graphein” meaning ‘to write’ and the word ‘graffiti’ is plural of the Italian word “Graffito” meaning ‘scratch’ and its history can be dated back to prehistoric cave man wall drawings, it can be seen as a human ‘need’ for communication – “Graffiti represents man’s desire to communicate” [http://www.graffiti.org/faq/pamdennant.html]

Man’s desire to communicate is loud and clear from the walls of Valparaiso. I am continually impressed with the natural beauty of this country in all of its parts that I have visited. One thing I have yet to share is some of the beauty I see nearly everyday in Valparaiso. Enjoy!
