Cycling in Cajamarca

A couple of years ago I stayed in Cajamarca in a nice homestay and made friends with local cyclists hiring their bikes and riding some lovely trails. As a cyclist I wanted to help them and raised some money in the UK to buy them some bikes and set up a tourist business there. Maybe you would be inte...

Re: is this arequipa apartment a scam?

Not sure if you are renting or buying. Either way book into a good hostal for a couple of weeks, buy the local paper on Sunday and start taking taxis and look and see. For rental most want a month up front and there is very little correlation between price and quality. There is an expat in Arequipa ...

Re: Tea in Arequipa

Depends on the intended market. My view of ariquipenos tastes are more around fast food and the idea of tea may be a little off the mark. That said there are many tourists who may enjoy something different. My favourite is English breakfast.

Re: Prescription anti-depressants in Arequipa

Try the guys in Arequipa - they will have local knowledge - also just try the chemist and ask? Inka farma is a good one and sometimes you can get stuff over the counter that isn't available in in the UK, http://www.facebook.com/groups/230191863664174/ Also check out my blog for some insights into Ar...

Re: running in Arequipa?

You can join Club Inter and I saw people there both running on the track and around the complex and there is a gym with running machines. If road running choose a quiet and unpolluted urbanizacion, otherwise head up into the surrounding hills, for example by taking the road that passes Club Inter up...

Re: Arequipa - Just curious how many on here live in Arequipa

Yes, I planned to organize something next month when we get situated. We'll be moving in the next week and so I figure early February we could do a meet and greet somewhere. I was going to collect email addresses and such and invite everyone. However, if someone else who is already living there wan...

Re: Arequipa - Just curious how many on here live in Arequipa

Hi all, I moved to Arequipa in Septembe and I love it here! I work in infectious disease and specifically in Chagas disease and plan on staying here for a few years. I have also noticed that the expat network in Arequipa isn't great - in fact, I've found it a bit difficult to make friends outside o...
