Arequipa, lovely and livable

Arequipa was exactly what we needed after out time in the jungle and our 60-hour bus marathon.  Coming from Bolivia, Peru seems ultra-modern and paradisiacal.  There’s fast Internet!  There’s soft serve ice cream!  What a dreamland.  We stayed for two nights in Arequipa, taking leisurely strolls around town and enjoying the fantastic architecture and mountain views.  Arequipa seemed to us a very modern, well-off, and livable city.  We’d love to go back and spend more time!

About Carrie

Carrie's got the traveling bug and thinks "settling down" is overrated. Too many people to meet, places to see, and languages to learn!
