Hi there

I'm to be arriving in Peru on the 26th of Jan. Although provisionally I'm looking into tefl opportunitues around Lima, I'm also open to the possibility of heading elsewhere. For some reason, Arequipa grabs my attention. Does anyone know if there's much work to be had there, or if the city is generally recommendable?

Thanks,

Kenny

Vin1127 lived and taught in Arequipa. PM him.

Not much info. on job opps. mostly just on the city itself.

A quick search got this on the 1st page of returns from a poster named Sarah, which you may have already seen.

she wrote:

"Hello. Yes, I am in Arequipa. I just arrived here about 2 weeks ago so I can only tell you my initial impressions, as I still have plenty to see and learn in Arequipa. I have to say that the city is growing on me. The climate is wonderful... warm and dry during the day (all year round i hear), and a bit chilly at night. The buildings are indeed very beautiful... but some of the streets are so full of crowds of people, traffic jams and stores, that it is hard to notice the beauty of the buildings. That being said, there are also quiet streets that are quite pleasant.

In response to what footprint said about taxis... i have not experienced this or heard this from anyone here in Arequipa. but it may be true and i have just not yet had an issue. every taxi driver i have had has been extremely friendly and fair (and very well dressed).

oh, i read someone else´s post about the food here being cheap and great. thats very true. i have eaten so many delicious set menu meals for so cheap. i love the food here. "
