On today’s travel vlog in Arequipa, Jeff almost got himself arrested.

We made it to Arequipa early this morning. It’s cool coming back to Arequipa as I used to both live here and run tours in the city. So, it’s really fun to be back in a city I’m really familiar with.
Jeff and I ran around and did chores all morning, and then we took our travel photography workshop group to the Santa Catalina Monastery which is one of the most photogenic places in all of Peru. We took people around the monastery, shooting photos and working on composition and some advanced photography techniques.
After leaving Santa Catalina Monastery, we headed to the plaza de armas in Arequipa to photograph sunset. We went up to my classic spot above the plaza to shoot sunset and the blue hour. It’s such a cool location, and the light was amazing.
I convinced Jeff to go stand on a rooftop that was apparently off-limits. We got a pretty cool photo, which is the thumbnail for this travel vlog, but Jeff got questioned by the police. We thought he might get arrested. Honestly, the images are so cool it probably would have been worth it.
Then, after photography in Arequipa’s Plaza de Armas, we headed to dinner.
Tomorrow, there’ll be another travel vlog from Peru. We’re headed into the Colca Canyon. Stay tuned.
