Debbie, Rick, and I left about 8AM from Puno enroute to Arequipa.  We encountered a horrible bus accident on the way; it was reported in the newspapers later that the bus driver had been drunk, and had zipped out passing a truck, and hit headon with another bus.  26 people were killed, and many more wounded in the hospital.  I decided at that point in time that I would never ride in the front again, (the bulkhead on the top level is my favorite place to ride the bus), and try my best to avoid all night trips. 

Anyway, we arrived in Arequipa and found our hotel.  The hotel is located right near downtown, a completely different location from where Isabel and I had stayed, so I was happy to see a whole new perspective of Arequipa.

I was bound and determined to see more of the city sights, as were Debbie and Rick, so we did the tour of the Convent and did alot of walking around.  I did Condor Canyon by myself, nobody else seemed to be interested.  I will try to include that blog entry later. 

Arequipa was our parting with Rick, he went North, Debbie and I went South.
