At 6:00am we went down the street to La Casa de Melgar. This was the house of the bishop of Arequipa at the end of the 19th century. The vaulted ceilings, multiple courtyards, art and antiques are a perfect photographer's haven. So while I slept all day, Jim just hung around taking pictures. I guess in some ways we both had a day of healing. This place was one of the 4 best places we stayed at in all of Ecuador and Peru! It is a real gem.
Unfortunately, we were in Arequipa for only 2 days so missed seeing a lot of the beautiful sites in the city. We wandered around the city on day 2 taking in the convent, a church here and there and some alpaca wool shops. We caught an uneventful flight (which is the kind of flight one wants to have) to Lima. We are heading home for a couple of weeks and this begins that journey homeward.
