Off the beaten track for the Fiftyplus – Arequipa, Peru by K.J.S.Chatrath

Arequipa is the second most important city in Peru after Lima. It is situated at an elevation of  about 7,000 ft above sea level and has a population around one million.

Here are a few photographs taken by me in the modest but sensitively done up hotel where I stayed for a night.


The inner courtyard-what a lovely use of blue!


A tiny park at the end of the street.


Chewing of coca leaves is almost universal.


A hostel nearby with an unusual name.


An old grinding stone in the Backyard of the hotel.


An inner passage in the hotel. Really cool!


Looks so very natural, no?

More on Arequipa will come on this website soon.
