The 411 on Scenic Arequipa

To those who haven’t gone to Peru, Arequipa is probably one of the highest cities of the world. Wikipedia says Arequipa lies in the Andes mountains, at an altitude of 2,335 meters (7,661 ft) above sea level; the former snow-capped volcano El Misti overlooks the city. That’s as high as Aspen, Colorado! It also manages to be the second largest city in Peru. And for me, it’s probably my most favorite.
