Arequipa – it’s a keeper!

Arequipa is a beautiful city! It is 2350m (7,710 ft) above see level and has the charm and the looks. The whole city was built with white volcanic stones hence nicknamed the “White city”. It is surrounded by three volcanoes.

One of our visits in Arequipa we went to see the Colca Canyon. It is 4,907m  (16,100 ft) above see level and not to mention the altitude sickess.  It was very bad I must say. In these Canyons lives the huge Condors and if we are lucky we will see a Condor fly. Guess what? We were one of the very lucky ones to see not one, not two but total of four Condors flying during our visit in the Canyons. What a sight!
