Our Udderly fabulous last days in Arequipa

A travel blog entry by augsabroad

... Another tambo had been the main slaughterhouse site of the city, even though it was just as beautiful as the others. The third tambo was the coolest because teh man whose family owns the land had begun to unbury a lot of the rooms and spaces found within, including many artifacts (some books were 500 years old!) and older parts of teh building that had been put in disuse. He gave us a personal tour and was very excited at the prospect of turning the space into ...

The oldest mummy returns . . .

We were also in the first two seats which seemed to have more restricted leg room than usual, although the seats themselves were as ‘armchair-like’ as those in the bus from Santiago.

... to Tacna and then cross the border by collectivo. This meant a bus from the airport into downtown Tacna, and then finding a collectivo to hustle me over the border. I was a bit worried about this - I was happy to do it during the day, but there was a risk I'd arrive in Arica at night and have to navigate to the hostal - the night brings out the bad in people. With the 30 min delay in my flight, I wasn't sure how this was going to work especially given there are a couple ...
