Arequipa: La Ciudad Blanca

Arriving in Arequipa...
Around the Plaza de Armas

Lemonade @ Restaurant on the top (great view of the plaza)

Juanita "The Ice Princess" @ Museo Santury

Ice cream @ Manono's

Monasterio de Santa Catalina

Mountain biking in the countryside with Juan. (I booked him through my hotel, I highly recommend him!)

Here is my guide Juan, we stopped for a cool glass of chicha. (corn beer)

Stopping by a mill

My hotel: Hospedaje el Caminante Class, right by the monastery. I loved it here, highly recommend it. $15 a night, big clean rooms, quiet, polite staff, quasi-warm water.

Fabulous breakfast on the roof

    You know what? I´m planning to visit Peru this summer(september)and, of course, the places you visited are included in my itinerary (Lima, Arequipa, Cusco, Machu Picchu, among others). The information you shared is been useful to me.
