Headed to Lima tomorrow for 2 days and then back to the States after 13 months here in Peru. I’ve got a gangbang of fotos from Cuzco, Machu Picchu, and MP Pueblo, but shaky internet. 3 days and I’ll get everything up. Stay posted
Oh hello there,
It’s your last night in Arequipa and you want to go out?
How nice, here’s a never ending rainstorm and yes, we’re aware that there are no street drains, so the streets will turn into rivers. But seriously, have a good time
My buddy is visiting from Camaná, so we and some other buddies decided to go out for some real food today. Went to “La Terraza” which overlooks ‘La Plaza De Armas’ here in Arequipa. Legit.
1st pic is chicken something, I forgot the name
2nd pic is ceviche, which is always delicious with ‘chelas’ (beers)
Every bag of Doritos I have eaten in the past month or so has come with a mini packet of Ketchup or Mustard. I don’t know if this is a world wide promotional thing, or if they are just catering to the fact that Peruvians eat their chips in the most disgusting way possible.
The Pacific ocean along the coast of Camaná, Peru now has a pair of my sunglasses. I thought for sure that my shades would stay on whilst getting smacked in the face by waves. Guess not. But not all was a loss, it feels good to have a sunburn again.
The Superdome losing power really set things off here in Peru. My landlady forgot to pay the utility bill so I was without power all day yesterday. Halfway through my Muay Thai class, the power went off and we were informed that the entire Southern region of Peru had lost power. Walking down the street was an eerie experience. The sidewalks were full of people with candles, flashlights, and umbrellas. (It was also raining).
So after training I was hungry and decided to stop by a Chifa to see if the loss of power had affected their kitchen. Nope. All the tables were lit with candles and as I sat there and ate my ‘lomo saltado’, I couldn’t help but think, “It would suck to live in the 1700’s”.

I answered a questionnaire about teaching/living in Arequipa, Peru, so if you have any questions, this just about sums up every aspect of Arequipa.
Fun Fact: The picture of me at the beach was taken in Arica, Chile. Besides the casino, there isn’t too much else.
