Well it was all going too well. I´ve had a tummy bug that pole-axed me for the last 24 hours. Fortunatley (for me) this wasn´t a birding day but I haven´t managed to see much of the beautiful city of Arequipa - Bernie has!
At least I´m feeling a lot better now. The place we´ve stayed at (Casa Arequipa) is beautiful and the staff so very helpful - I´d recommend this place to anyone coming to this city.
