    ... to trade wares. It was like a city of women inside the city of Arequipa and all that female independence made the pope uncomfortable enough that he issued a decree kicking all the fripperies like worldly goods and servants out, and forcing the nuns to live communally, and cook and clean for themselves.

    This decree cut down on the numbers of wealthy women becoming nuns to this very day, but the drop in enrollment hasn’t ...

When we stopped for breakfast, this was badly ...

We visited a really ...

    ... necessary!! One of the highlights of the tour was on the first night where we all went to a restaurant and were treated to some local folk music and dancing, this was all extremely pleasant until audience participation was required. Luckily for us we didn't have to dress up in any outfits, so the embarrassment was only mild.
