(Series on my Trip to PERU - South America - WALKING ALONG THE STREETS OF THE CITY OF AREQUIPA - From September 6th to 22nd, 2007 - # 037!)


O VULCÃO "EL MISTI"!
THE VOLCANO "EL MISTI"!

After staying a couple of days in PUNO, by the TITICACA LAKE, I took a bus down to AREQUIPA. The whole trip was sort of interesting, with lots of mountains, lakes, but pretty desert, arid and poor! The city of AREQUIPA is the second largest in PERU and is totally surrounded by volcanic terrain (that means, a desert!). It's known as "LA CIUDAD BLANCA/A CIDADE BRANCA/THE WHITE CITY" because many of its downtown historical buildings are white (due to the way they were built, with "sillar" a white volcanic rock). The most impressive volcano that overlooks the city is the "EL MISTI" and before it got totally dark, I took this picture of it, while walking across a bridge.
