Breakfast in Bed

Repeat of yesterday - breakfast in bed and lounging. We are going to 11:30 mass at the Cathedral that dominates the main plaza. This cathedral is the only one in Peru that stretches the length of the plaza. It is one of less than 100 basilicas in the world entitled to display the Vatican flag. Not sure what the criteria is to have such an honor but I will try to find out. And by "I" I mean Mirta will need to ask one of the locals. Some speak English, however, some do not.

Sunday is also mercado day in Arequipa - let's see what little treasures we can find!

The restaurants and bars will be filled with people watching today's futbol game (soccer). We are cheering for Argentina in honor of Mirta and her parents. We just may join in the fun for our afternoon break.
