Most of what we saw was a beautiful monastery, much like some of the religious architecture in the south of Spain really. While I enjoyed that tremendously, the surprise was in the catacombs. I have never seen something so creepy in all my life. The larger bones of the 70,000 some people burried there are all that are left- no more coffins or much body really- and are arranged in patterns throughout the catacombs. Apparently this was the decision of the curator. Weird.
Tim is continuing on (lonely) with his classes in Arequipa while I am practicing my Spanish in cabs, restaurants and tourist destinations around here. Mom and I will visit Puerto Supe on Saturday and then return to Arequipa on Sunday so that I can hit the books again.
