Down in the Canyon

... little trip with him, but it was a great pleasure to see him again after all these years; who knows in which other corner of the world we will meet again next time.
We arrived back in Arequipa in the late afternoon and, after dinner and a shower, we left the same evening on yet another overnight bus. Let's just hope that the temperature will be humanly acceptable or that the heating will work. In any case we learned from mistakes, and this time we have our sleeping bags within ...

After the hot springs we had lunch at a restaurant in Chivay and then drive three more hours to Arequipa. This involved driving over a pass at 4950 meters and passing by active volcanoes, the very same ones causing the earthquakes! We had supper with our guide, Jean, at the Casa Andina hotel where we were staying and had an early ...
