Arriving in Arequipa I felt everything was white, from the buildings with a Spanish ring to them, to the snowcapped, dormant volcano Misti towering “behind”. All bathing in the sunshine. The city’s focal point is the beautiful Plaza de Armas. Even though it is well worth a visit, there are few other things to warrant spending a longer time here. Nevertheless, I got what I came for, a jump-off point for visiting Colca Canyon.
