Kim and I are just waiting for our bus to Arequipa from Tacna. Last night we took the bus from Calama to Arica right in the North of Chile and then this morning we took a collectivo to Tacna in Peru. Not much else to add at the moment. We should get into Arequipa (the White City) later this evening - probably about 6.30pm.
We´ve been getting very mixed up over time zones over the last few days as Bolivia is one hour ahead of Peru, and then we travelled West into Chile expecting the time to go back to Peruvian time but instead the time went further another hour (even though we were travelling West!!) so it was two hours ahead of Peru. Then when we crossed back into Peru we only seemed to have to move the clock one hour back but we can´t work out why...
Anyway, I´ll update my journal again once we get to Arequipa. Looking forward to spending some time there in a nice town. We´ll hopefully head into Colca Canyon for a day or two - it´s the deepest canyon in the world (beating Grand Canyon in the States) and is a Condor sanctuary. Should be good. Wonder if we can do some paragliding there...
