Apr 4, 2005 - Arequipa, by night bus - Celebration of Pope Juan Paul II's life

This was a long day with an early departure from Las Paz to the border town of Puno on the lake Titicaca in Peru, then to Arequipa. We arrived at the cathedral as they were setting up paintings and portraits of Juan paul II when he was visiting Peru in January 1985 and May 1988.
