Zig Zag

A travel blog entry by kirstinf


... I keep thinking of Arequipa as a town but in actual fact it's about the same population as Auckland. The city is at the base of El Misti, a volcano that reaches 5822 metres. Many of the city's old and interesting buildings are built of sillar - a pearly white volcanic material. Mim (from my first tour) said when I made it to Arequipa I had to go to a restaurant called Zig Zag. Oh my life- it was amazing! Of course any restaurant that starts with a free Pisco sour has to be ...

Arequipa, the Colca Canyon, Trujillo & Mancora

A travel blog entry by franmullineux


... back to Lima, so sadly I missed out on visiting Juanita. Once in Lima, I took a taxi to the bus terminal, where I'd booked an overnight bus to Trujillo.

You have your own tv, get ...

Architectural Arequipa and Colca Canyon

A travel blog entry by lizemma10

Guinea pig anyone?

A travel blog entry by gringo_sange


... do in wetsuits to get warm - although I realised early on this joke had run out of fuel, I couldn't stop myself and kept throwing in the odd comment about pee pee. Traits of my brother!

I think I had guinea pig that night for dinner. What little meat I found tasted like chicken, but I had to cut through the skin and bone to get to it. I was a bit alarmed (as I think was everyone at the table) when the waitress asked if I wanted the head removed. Really? You serve it with ...

The white city of Arequipa

A travel blog entry by alexennis269


... Incas to access the higher reaches of the mountain manifested themselves again. The snow melted, revealing beneath it hundreds of years of history which is what prompted Johan Reinhard and his team to undertake the expedition. It is remarkable, considering the difficulty with which they scaled the mountain in the modern age, with state of the art mountaineering equipment, that the Incas were able to do it back in those days, equipped with only the most primitive gear.
