Peru's Bridges: Puente Francisco Bolognesi (2)

A slightly out-of-focus photo of Puente Francesco Bolognesi over the Rio Chili. One of the volcanos that surround Arequipa (probably Nevado Chachani) can be seen through the arch on the left.  The volcano is 6100 meters tall and towers over Arequipa which is at 2200 meters above sea level.

Rio Chili looks like a fast-moving whitewater river in this photo. The river and the mountains make Arequipa a popular tourist destination for young people who enjoy the outdoors.

Peru is a very pretty country with many people dressed in embroidered jackets and tiny hats, with a mixture of Spanish colonial and Incan architecture, and an abundance of llamas.
