This time I am coming to you from beautiful Arequipa Peru. Arequipa is Peru’s second most populous city with 861,145 inhabitants, as well as its second most populous metropolitan area as of 2016. The city was founded on 15 August 1540 and is called the “White City” due to the buildings being made from volcanic rock which glistens bright white in the brilliant sunshine. Arequipa is located in the southern part of Peru.
The city is located 7,638 ft of elevation above sea level, with the lowest part of the city being at 6,696 ft above sea level in the area called Huayco Uchumayo while the highest is located at 9,220 ft above sea level.
The central part of the city is crossed by the Chili River from north to south; to the north and east of Arequipa are the Andes mountains, while to the south and west there are minor mountain ranges associated to the Andes. A series of volcanic cones dominate the city skyline: Misti, and the extinct volcanic groups Pichu Pichu and Chachani. The western slopes of the Andes in the region feature thick layers of volcanic lava that cover large areas. Always a wonderful climate in this beautiful and active city yhroughout the year, temperatures do not exceed 25 °C (77 °F) and rarely drop below 5 °C (41 °F)
Remember…look to your future and not to the past, learn to live in the grace of God and love much, forgive always and hold no bitterness toward anyone
