Sunday Trip...

Yesterday I had a random trip to the next city "Arequipa"... I didn't plan to go there...It just happened!!!
I'm also wearing random clothes cuz I didnt have time to dressed up nicely...everything was quickly...
I went to see my grandma' who is in hospital cuz she had an accident and while i was waiting for the time when visitors can go inside... I went downtown to take some pics...
Here I'm in the second floor of a monastery... called "Claustros de la Compañia" all the building is made of "Sillar" which is white volcanic rock. That's why Arequipa is called "The white city" cuz most of the houses are made of this rock...This monastery is very old ... and very beautiful too!
(I got the vertigo thing when i was standing there to take the pic...lol)

There is a Cafè too and I liked the chair and the table..thats why i took a pic...
And from there one can see the volcanoes!! yes there are 3 of them ..cuz Arequipa is located in the andes... just when I was in the bus arriving to the city ...I saw this one called "Chachani" and I was so excited to take a pic of it ..so beautiful and it always have snow on the top...

That's the firt floor of the monastery... now It's full of stores... some kind of shopping centre...for tourists...
This is the gallery around the patio... all the columns have many carved things and they have a story which I dont know ..but a tourist guide would tell me...

And this is the other volcano called "Misti" ...long time ago it has loads of snow on the top as the other one, but with the global warming is hard to see snow on it... This volcano is similar to the one in Japan called "Fujiyama"
This picture was taken from hospital where my grandma's staying...What a view!!!

I didn't take pic to the other volcano cuz it was covered with clouds... maybe it was snowing there altho it was too hot in the city but at 4pm. it got so cold... it was clever to take a jacket with me ... and well I had a nice day..
There are many beautiful places to go visit and take pics of ...but I didnt have much time and that wasnt my intention...
