This was the first day we have not had to get up for something since arriving in Arequipa so we were a bit lazy for a while at Marta´s. We played on the internet, had breakfast and laid around.
Later I used the Magic Jack to call my sister Karen´s to talk to the fam on Thanksgiving and had a nice chat with them on speakerphone. Since the magic jack is from the US, it´s free to call there. Marta and Jorwerd endearingly call it the magic yack.
We got overnight bus tickets to Cusco. We figured we´d save a night of lodging and sleep on the way.
Later we toured the Santa Catalina convent. A still operational convent originally built in the 1560s. It´s about a city block I think. Pretty impressive. You´ll have to see Tiff´s pics because I forgot my camera.
We went to the leather district and I bought a nice wallet and belt for about $10.
After getting back, we packed up, grabbed quick dinner(no big Thanksgiving feast for us this year), said our goodbyes to Jorwerd, Marta and Beatrice and headed to the bus station.
After a chicken sandwich, a cheesy latin dance video and bingo, I fell asleep.
