My Journey Round The World

279 days on the road…

Peru – Arequipa


So on November 13, I met Ariane & Gregoire at Lima airport :) So nice to see them after travelling on my own - nearly… We spend the night chating & trying to sleep a little bit before our next plane to Arequipa at 5am…

Arequipa was our first stop to get acclimated to height before leaving for the Colca Canyon. The city is situated at 2300m and is really lovely – even if for me it was a little shock as the landscape was really brown and I found it a bit sad coming from green Costa Rica! – with plenty of nice restaurants! We particularly enjoyed Zig Zag, recommended by the agency as well as our guide book. Convinced by Gregoire, we visited Santa Catalina monastery. What a good idea! It was absolutly great! Beautiful red & blue colors – never seen before such a great blue, Ariane, I again forget the name! - I felt like in a dream! Not something you expect from a monastery… I really enjoyed this small town into the town, renamed Club Med by Gregoire ;) Yes, really, how can you expect to feel so relax in a monastery… :)

Le seul monastère ou rentre et on en ressort mariée ;-)

Ah oui, je l’avais oubliee celle-la !

Est’ce que vous vous souvenez à l’aéroport de Lima du cirque qu’à fait l’homme d’entretien pour passer le balai. Déplacer la totalité des sièges de la salle d’attente de l’autre côté du hall…incroyable, au pérou tout prend une autre dimension ;-) )
