Arequipa a dry, dusty town at the foot of El Misti Volcano. Peru's second city (after Lima). Earth tremors daily. We stayed here about a week in total, including 3 days spent trekking in the Colca Canyon. We stayed in a private room in a youth hostel in Arequipa run by a charming Spanish man who couldn't speak any English. Bascially in Arequipa …

Observations about South America

... What's wrong with subtitles? If I had a choice between SBS movies and Monkey Magic, I know which one I'd choose. "Los Simpsons" just doesn't cut it for me, either.

Big showdown just went down in Chinatown, by the way. Liam Neeson isn't happy - he's the chief cop and he can't stop the war.

I've touched on this before, but it needs expansion. It seems like you get a receipt for EVERYTHING here. Entry to a village (yes that's a ...

    Nice, clean and cheap place. The owner is very friendly. For french people this name is a huge symbol because of the Klapisch mythic movie "l´auberge espagnole". The owner lived in France and confirmed me that was a reference to the movie.
    It is in the center of Arequipa, Between 5 and 10 mn by feets from the lovely plaza de arma.
    A bit noisy, espacially the week end, because of the pub close to the hotel. I slept very well with my blocks.
