Chill Day Arequipa

A travel blog entry by lpringle

Today we had a chilled day in Arequipa, wandering the main square and going for ice cream and chilling in the hostel. We met up with Diego again for dinner at a BBQ restaurant where we had two sharing grills between the 6 of us... The steak and chicken kebabs were great but when I lifted the third piece of meat to share out and realised I had a whole pig trotter on my plate I was a little put off!

Not only were the views and sheer drops over the canyon spectacular, but we saw a lady carry a kitten up the bus, chewing on a chicken drumstick. We set off ...

We had free time in the afternoon so we visited a museum that houses "Juanita", a mummy preserved in ice, of a 12-13 year old girl sacrificed to the volcano god to stop the eruptions. We learnt that these children were selected at birth for this honour and buried with their umbilical cords. Juanita was killed with a blow to the head but ...

... was fantastic. All good mistake well made, we all even treated ourselves to a pudding as they looked divine, Kerry's first taste of apple crumble since she had left England, definitely something that I missed of mummy D's cooking. We went out to a bar called Dr shot for a few drinks but it wasn't that busy as it was a Sunday night so we headed back to the hotel after one ...
