Dinner Party and Running

A travel blog entry by augsabroad


Since I have so much time these days (LOTS OF LEISURE), I've taken up wandering around new parts of the city --only safely, I promise. I have recently added running in the morning to my daily routine. Lila arrived Monday night and we've been going out together. Tall gringas attract attention anyway, but when they are in running gear and sweating, honks and whistles are inevitable. It helps to have another person there to feel less like a ...

Condors and comfort

A travel blog entry by glampackers

... soar above us with their wings spread to 2 meters width, gracefully dipping and diving into the canyon. But even more impressive than the condors are the Israelis who silence the crowd when the condors approach. We're not sure they realize that they are making more noise. Back in Arequipa. We set out to find a roof over our heads for our last full night in Peru. Success! We find a lovely colonial ...
