Location: Arequipa, Peru
I’ve decided to extend my stay in Arequipa to Monday. One of the main reason is that I really really dislike the act of travelling (getting from Point A to Point B) so I want to delay my 10-hour bus ride from Arequipa to Cusco.
Today was the last day of Spanish class. Both my teachers gave me farewell gifts–a book of coupons and a box of chocolates. That was really sweet of them.
In the evening, I visited the Basilica Cathedral of Arequipa which only opens at 7am and 5pm. The church has a wooden “devil” crushed under something heavy.
The basilica also has a few dolls dressed up in lavish dresses and some with beads of tears on their face.
Other interesting photos for the day were:
I’ll leave you with a few photos of the sights in Arequipa from earlier in the afternoon.
