Arequipa and the Colca Canyon

As the final part of our June Peruvian trip we went to Arequipa and the Colca Canyon - locations in the south of Peru, Arequipa has a long history from pre-inca times through the colonial period, and now a a modern industrial and tourist center

. It is at ~7,000 feet and is surrounded by mountains - several of which contain volcanos. It has some fasinating monestaries and convents to tour as well as good restaurants. The Colca Canyon is a dramatically beautiful place with a drop of about 10,000 feet. We stayed in a nice town, Cabanaconde, and the trip from and to Arequipa has some very nice views.
