Arequipa Impressions

Although my last post was from the Colca Canyon, there are four days in Arequipa and four days in Cusco that have not been documented. I have decided to keep my Arequipa post to photos only. We had a great ime there visiting museums, Monestaries and Churches as well as a half day city tour that took us Casa Fundador which was the home of the founder of Arequipa as well as to Paucarpata incan terraces.

Areqiupa is a beautiful city with a wonderful Plaza de Armas, Cathederal and quaint streets. We stayed in the Casa Andina on Jerusalen street, which was a great location to see the sights and enjoy the food. One of the highlights of our stay was dinner at ZigZag listed as the #1 eatery on trip adviser. We both concur that the reviews were correct. You will see in the photo, that we are wearing bibs. This is due to the fact that all of the meals are served on sizzling lava rock. The bibs are to take care of the spray from the cooking going on as you eat your meal.

The city is clean and colourful as you will see from the photos. Enjoy!

  1. I am always curious when I see great photos as to how the magic happens. I know you have a wonderful ability to create unique & artistic images: I was wondering more about the mundane aspects of the work. Were these shot with a mobile device (e.g. iphone) or camera? Where do you store them all when traveling so that you can access them to create this great blog?

    Thanks for continuing to 'take us' all with you on your journey--it is SO great to have 'Broudos Unplugged' to look forward to!
