Peru Pictures, part 4

Arequipa and the road to there…


This is a photo from the bus of the sand dunes with green, watered river valleys.


The central Plaza of Arequipa with the two-story arched balconies that surround it on three sides.


The cloisters of one of the many monasteries in the downtown area of Arequipa.


The water-wheel that turned a grinding stone in the room directly above. Used in early Colonial times for grinding wheat, corn and rice.


Pre-Colombian mummy in the excellent museum that we discovered by surprise in the Franciscan Monastery La Recoleta.
