 Its been ages since I last wrote here.

I finished Spanish school a week and a bit ago and and went to Puerto Lopez and Montanita to see the whales. Then I flew down to Lima to meet Robyn. Since then, weve looked around Lima (and saw lots of bones in the Catacombs), visited a Pisco winery in Ica, been to the Islas Ballestas to see the wildlife (sea lions, penguins and lots of birds), been to Huacachina for dune buggying and sand bording (incredible!) and now were in Arequipa and about to go rafting this afternoon. Yesterday we went to see "Mummy Juanita," a 14 year old girl who was sacrificed by the Incas on top of one of the mountains. She froze pretty instantly and is really well preserved, still having her last meal inside her stomach! (Check out http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mummy_Juanita and http://www.wheresgrayleen.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/11/momia-juanita.jpg

 Well be going to Colca Canyon in the morning.
