Peru's Colca Canyon

I was rummaging through my Flickr account this weekend while sick in bed and rediscovered a few photos from my 2010 trip to Peru. I visited Peru for over three months, living in the southern city of Arequipa and visiting many places such as the beaches of Camana, Lake Titicaca and Machu Picchu from there. But one of the very first trips I made was outside of Arequipa the city and deeper into Arequipa the region. This post is dedicated to reminiscing on my tour from the city into the mountains and out to Rio Colca. Because I didn't have that many photos I found myself googling to remember all the different places I visited and decided to include a few links so you can "visit" them too!
