Arequipa what a lovely place so full of history. The scenary is breath taking with the whole area being surrounded by towering volcanoes which are still active with the last eruption being around 50 years ago. We learnt that there was an earthquke just a week before we arrived and such events are common place. We made a visit to a Convent that is …

... tourist baloney. It was a spectacle for the senses; a traditional market with a row for the meat butchers, for the fishmongers, for the fruit vendors, for the vegetable vendors, and bread etc. The colours were beautiful and the vendors were all traditionally dressed.

The monastery was set up by a rich Spanish widow who invited other wealthy ladies to join and it became a city within Arequipa with its own walls and fully functioning community services. It was private up to 1970 before it was opened to the public and still functions to this day.
