Arequipa is a beautiful colonial city with many churches and grand buildings, but we've seen a few of those now, so it takes something extraordinary and special to set places apart. In Arequipa it's the Monasterio Santa Catalina which until 1970 was a closed city within the city. The nuns who lived there didn't go outside and outsiders weren't allowed inside, it's quite something. We spent 4 or 5 hours wandering around and between us took hundreds of pictures, had a great time. Also in Arequipa is a museum which houses the mummy of a teenage Inca girl sacrificed over 500 years ago, that visit was crap - you have to take a guided tour, with 20 other people you don't see or hear much, then when you get to the mummy itself you can see nothing - it's very dimly lit and is inside 3 glass boxes - waste of time and money. Next we're heading on a 6 hour bus journey to Cabanaconde for some canyon hiking - can't wait !!!
