Gene's South American Walkabout travel blog

Cuy(pronounced "COO-ee")--Guinea Pig. Very tasty.

Plaza de Armas, Arequipa, Peru.

La Catedral--The Cathedral, Plaza de Armas.

La Compañía, the Jesuit Church on the corner of Plaza de Armas.

Arequipa(pronounced "ah-ray-KEY-puh") is a city of about 750,000. It is a jumping off point for treks to Colca Canyon. I stayed here for a day and walked around the city a bit, before going on my own trek of the canyon.

I finally tried out the South American delicacy of Cuy(Guinea Pig). It was actually quite tasty.
