Arequipa, about 8 hours south east of Lima, is known as the city of artists. I arrived here early in the morning on an overnight bus from Lima and was relieved to find silent streets and cool mountain breeze.

I spent a day strolling on the quite cobblestone streets and checking out little restaurants and shops on the way. In the morning, as I was walking outside a school, a guy asked me if I would like to come in and see some student performances. I didn’t understand any songs they were singing so after 30 minutes, I left. Later that day, I was pulled inside an auditorium to watch a Christian student band perform. Very random!
