Cute and quiet

Koala's was a little difficult to find at first but once the taxi driver opened his eyes and slowed down a little it was easy to spot on our third drive past. The hostel is quiet, clean and cheap. Very quiet, me and my friend where the only people there but that was probably due to the time of year. The staff were great, very friendly and chatty and made you feel welcome. I would have liked to stay longer.

... by a snow topped volcano. It's an active region; Arequipa experiences an average of 12 earthquakes a day. Usually three are strong enough to notice. This has meant a lot of building and rebuilding in Arequipa over time, though the city has retained it's charm and the centre really is a lovely place to spend a few days. Arequipa stands at approximately 2300 metres, and is much more temperate than the other Andean regions we have visited.

It was just enough time to grab something to eat and make it back to the hotel for the 2:00 pick up. We drove 10 minutes to arrive at the office of the rafting place. We were fitted with farmer john wetsuits and a raincoat over ...

... which was sorely needed. Planned to get going and shop for clothes today. Didn't turn out exactly that way.

I got up this morning a litte late Peruvian time, but at 8 am California time (Peru is on CST). Went down to a typical breakfast of bread, jam, ham, juice and scrambled eggs. So good since I skipped dinner last night. Then, sat in the sun for a few minutes (I thought) and ...

Shake and quake...

... not far away from Arequipa, where a lot of activity is happening at the moment and the tectonic plates are very unpredictable. That day alone there had been twenty nine earthquakes with the same Chilian epicentre! The rest of the evening was quiet but secretly I was relieved that we were making our way north in the morning, further away from Chile. What I hadn't expected was that the geology of Peru itself would be next to put us to the test...
