After a brief stopover in Lima, I took a flight to Arequipa. Arequipa is a beautiful colonial city not far from Cusco, and the best place to get to the Colca Canyon. My hotel was directly opposite the San Francisco Monastery, a focal point of the city. The Plaza de Armas (as with all cities in Peru)was spectacular - a large open space with a …
