    Adventures In Peru

    After a late arrival in Lima, several of us took and early morning flight to Arequipa in southern Peru. Arequipa is known as the white city as many of the colonial buildings are constructed of white limestone. The city is surrounded by three volcanoes, none of which are active. They are very beautiful, capped with snow.

    A side trip brought us to the hacienda of Jose Miguel Rivas Vizcarra where we were treated to an exhibition of his Champion of champion mare, Gobenadora, and stallion Arequipeno. On the way to the hacienda we saw fields of cactus being raised in this high dry climate. Very puzzling, until we found out that they were for raising cochineal, which provide the red dye for dyeing fabrics and for export for make up manufacture.

    Next day we left on a small bus to go where we could see the condors. We crossed the continental divide at 16000 feet of elevation. The air was so thin we had to walk slowly. We all felt like we needed oxygen to breathe.

    It was quite cold in the high country, as rain was coming, which it did by the time we stopped at Chivay. We stayed at Casa Andina, very rural but comfortable with a nice dining room.When we returned from a nice dinner by a roaring fire, we discovered humps in our bed, which turned out to be hot water bottles. I am sure we all cuddled them and were soon warm. Next a.m. took us on a narrow gravel road to Condor crossing where we hoped to see the condors fly up in the morning thermals. We were not disappointed.

    On the way we saw many wild vicunas, which have been an endangered species.They are harvested every 2 years and one shearing provides about 25 grams of fabric. No wonder it is so expensive.

    Back in Arequipa we crossed the Chili river to visit an old mill where they used to grind grain. The mill is surrounded by 200-year old willow trees. The millstones are still there, and water still flows down the millrace.

    On the last day some of us decided to have lunch at our hotel terrace overlooking the main plaza. As we ate a delicious lunch we could see something going on in the plaza and finally a parade started. Much to our delight the parade was led by three Peruvian horse, a fitting end to our stay in the this lovely city

    And finally on the way to the airport we stopped for a tour of the Convent of Santa Catalina. This is a remarkable historical site where in colonial days the second eldest daughter or wealthy families where cloistered here.
