Just a few snaps from the past weekend by way of not doing my homework… ;-) It is a colourful town with plenty of life. I imagine there will be a few more at some point before too long…. It looks like I will be here a while, my chest is getting better but very slowly, not quickly enough to risk heading out on two wheels again, back up into the thin, cold air of the mountains, so throwing myself into improving my Spanish instead.
The fire brigade (bomberos) were running a bit of a fundraiser in the Plaza de Armas on Saturday
There is also a lively VW scene, I stumbled across a couple of informal meets that happen at the weekends… folk get together to enjoy their cars and then head off around the town in a parade.
Quite possibly the greatest motorcycle helmet I have ever seen… I doubt the coppers at home would be too impressed however with this Predator. Shame.
Arequipa has a terrific market selling pretty much anything you could ever need….
Favourite thing there…. the juice stalls. Yum.
