Arequipa: A mosaic

Arequipa is a gorgeous gem of a city tucked into Peru’s southern Andes. The “white city”, reminiscent of southern Spain, has a perfect year-round temperature, no tourists, and a wealth of art and architecture.

Throw in a fully preserved Incan sacrificial “Ice Maiden”, delightful food, and the best alpaca and camelid clothing shopping in the country, and you got yourself a memorable day or two.

Some photos to convince you to go:
