Canyons, Cadillac´s, Caballitos & Cluelessness

A travel blog entry by looptiloop on Oct 17, 2013

Arequipa has a colonial feel to it, whose grand cathedral in the central plaza displaces it from a humble European city. Below the lofty stone steeples is a fruitful square splattered with vibrant flowers, irregular cobblestones and flocks of pigeons. Stone pillars stand guard to the sheltered sidewalk on the inner fringe of the square and the central peak of the tranquil space is an ostentatious fountain. A day spent exploring this up market city is not a day wasted and the ...

... natural formation.

One experience I wouldnīt like to repeat is getting altitude sickness on the first day of the trip. I drank lots of water and ate the coca sweets, but the headache I had would just not leave me.

Wednesday evening three of us left Lima by bus, sitting in the panoramic seats at the front of the second floor. Denisse is on her holidays so she will be with us for this trip. It was a long 18 hour ride, 2 hours longer than scheduled. The panoramic seats did us no good as it is dark by 6:30 pm until 5:45 am, however we did see the drive through Chincha. The changes are astounding, up to Chincha (200 km) most of ...

Pleather lingerie & bloody goat heads

... a successful business (although that's obviously no excuse for the municipal shortcomings that abound). Walking through the center of Juliaca is like walking through Times Square during Christmas; so many people and vehicles all in an obnoxious rush to get somewhere. The only difference is instead of the Gap and $6 hot pretzels you have women hacking day-old produce from overflowing fruit carts, bald mannequins in ...

    to be fair we were only here for one night and even then did not arrive until late so really just sleept. The rooms were comfortable (we were in a dorm) and the host was helpful in planning our walks and getting to see the condors the following morning before going on our trek. Breakfast was also included - the normal pervian fare

    Great vibe, useful (free) information, wonderful breakfast, delicious pizza and a beautiful setting. A few more bathrooms per traveller would have been nice but overall it was just what we were hoping for.
