la ciudad blanca (sabado, 11 septiembre)

Yesterday morning I crossed the border into Tacna, Perú. I had to take a colectivo from Arica to Tacna, and the guy at the border gave me a slightly difficult time before stamping my passport and allowing me to enter Perú. At first it didn´t seem much different than Chile. Tacna was just a dusty...

Arequipa

The night bus to Arequipa was surprisingly comfortable and I got decent sleep (only woke up a few times when the bus took particularly sharp turns along the [[United-States/Mountainside]] roads). Martin had joined us in Cuzco and was pretty beat in Arequipa after multiple flights from BA plus...

Nausea and Hard Feelings

Last night, I survived a nightbus from Cusco to Arequipa. This entailed sitting/trying to sleep on a bus/trying desperately not to throw up as we wound through mountainous terrain for about 9 hours. We took a nice bus line, Cruz del Sur, in hopes that the higher bus fee would ward off any...

After the physically exhausting train to Machu Picchu, the only thing left to do is...get an hour long, full body massage

We arrived in Arequipa our first stop in Peru, without any expectations at all. So were delighted to find ourselves in a really chic, cosmopolitan city with trendy bars,restaurants and a lovely central plaza. Jack one of the boys we were travelling with from Lake Titicaca spoke Spanish and so...

Arequipa y Yanque

Dejamos la Isla del Sol para volver a Copacabana y desde allí (en bus) cruzar la frontera a Perú que se encuentra a 15 minutos. Llegamos a Puno, ciudad peruana también a orillas del lago Titicaca y de allí empalmamos autobús para llegar a Arequipa, ciudad que nos la habían recomendado varias...

Los arequipeños dicen que no son peruanos.

Sali de Ica a las 23:00 horas del viernes direccion a Cuzco. En principio tenia que haber salido a las 18:00 horas pero en Abancay, una ciudad a mitad de camino, habia huelga. Por qué? No lo sé! Le pregunté a todo el mundo y no conseguí enterarme! El caso es que ibamos a salir a las 21:00...

Mugged Beef and Trade Unionists

When we arrived in Arequipa our hostel room wasn't yet ready. To be fair, the bus did arrive very early, although to be a bit more critical, the bus always arrives that early and the guy running the place had not come to pick us up at the bus station as promised. No matter, we just went to the...

Schoolin´

Spent a week in Arequipa taking Spanish lessons and wandering around the town. Arequipa is cool, with a colonial vibe, cobbled streets, and Stone buildings. We stuck it out for almost 10 days in the end, and since we weren´t doing tours and stuff every day it actually ended up being the...
