Little parade going on outside of my house on a sunny day here in Arequipa. How did I come across such a spectacle? I think it was the blaring music and drums that drew my attention. 

2 big issues with Peru:

The transportation system #isamess. Everyday there seems to be more taxis on the road and more angry combo drivers blaring their horns at passing pedestrians. 

Peru doesn’t recycle glass. Sure you can get a discount if you trade a large empty beer bottle for a full new one, but they don’t cater to the 12 oz variety. Which of course ends up in the trash. 

And last but not least, drinkable water. What a luxury the States have…
