... It would suffice. Griff was happy.

Arequipa is situated in a beautiful valley at the foot of El Misti volcano, a snow-capped perfect cone, 5822 m high. It is full of fine Spanish buildings made with sillar, a pearly white volcanic material. The town has been declared a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage site. Walking around the town was pleasant.

... pulled rank and insisted that this was the only way she was getting to hospital. So we found every blanket that we could and piled then on and around the lady and hoped for the best.

It is constructed from sillar, a white volcanic stone quarried locally. It is a city within a city located on ...

We walked the 15 minute walk across a large fast flowing river to the historic centre with an impressive plaza and colonnaded buildings surrounding it. A cathedral on one side of course. All very Hispanic. The stone here is very pale and Arequipa is therefore known ...

But for a birthday dinner, I was taken to a highly recommended restaurant offering delicious contemporary Peruvian cuisine, all washed down with a birthday cocktail and a bottle of our old friend, an Argentinian Torrontes. And that, coupled with skype calls to family back home, was my Peruvian 4th of July. Phil & Birthday Girl ...
