Arequipa, Peru

Happy Birthday Mark!!

Back to Peru after countless hours on another bus. Our destination, another beautiul colonial city. This one prone to eathquakes. 5.3 on the scale to be exact but it really didn´t feel very big. Nothing even moved in the room but what a weird sensation still. The city has been crippled by earthquakes several times in the last 50 years. Despite this there is still some beautiful old architecture. The 500 year old Santa Catalina monestary was still very much in tact. We found great restaurants (would you believe falafel?), celebrated Mark´s birthday (11-19) and booked our flights back to Ecuador. Ahhhh....back home to sleep in our own bed. Santa Catalina Monestary
