    ... San Pedro it was time to say ciao to Chile and hola to Bolivia. "It's chilly" Rach said as we crossed the border , "no, it's Bolivia" I quipped. She was of course referencing the temperature and I knew it. In all likelihood this exact scenario never unfolded, but it's a pun I have regularly used, and this seemed an apt moment to reference the joy it has provided during the trip. Note joy is normally mine not Rach's. I would guess the joy I derive from such gags is similar ...

We arrived in Arequipa at 06:00 and I am currently waiting in the TV/games room until check ...

    ... bags of puppies. They were the most adorable thing I've ever seen.

    We found a nice cafe for lunch and then headed to the Monasteria Santa Catalina, which was huge and took us a few hours to go around. It was quite pretty but if I'm honest not hugely interesting.

    Today we had a very nice breakfast in the sun on the terrace then went to town and joined the Countryside Tour on the open top bus. Open top but with a welcome canvas cover for shade.
