But the white walls of Arequipa on arrival made everything peachy
We will put the next story down to us being over tired...and hence hyper - that we kind of ran a muck in the Santa Catalina Monastery. Very Naughty Nun's of us indeed...but 8 girls armed with cameras, and pretty much the monastery to ourselves was a ticket to the perfect photo shoot...and 8 very sinful girls - who were not willing to confess.
In our hyper state we then progressed to dinner. Where Hannah almost shat herself at the dinner table...when the first guinea pig was brought out on a plate for Fernando. Being a vegetarian I am fine sitting next to people eating meat...I pay no attention to it. However when a guinea pig has literally being split down the middle, gutted, deep fried and thrown on a plate...with the site of the head in a screaming motion with it's hand outstretched, it's teeth in full view and eyes still open staring into my own...I nearly fell off my chair and screamed in fright. It was one of the most horrendous things I have ever seen...and could not eat my own dinner. The only comfort I had was knowing that the site of the guinea pig even freaked out the meat eaters... Lauren gave it a crack...and despite tasting exactly like KFC...due to the presentation she will not be eating it again!
Despite the guinea pig the local wine was much to be desired and assisted in our much needed sleep (especially Lauren's!).
Hasta la vista BABY!
