Miami Herald / AP Peruvian city bustles below volcano: "Hundreds of thousands of people settling in the path of inevitable disaster have gone largely unnoticed in Peru, where ignoring safety precautions is the norm. Peruvians have become morbidly accustomed to tragedies like the deaths of almost 300 people just over a year ago in a blaze at an unregulated fireworks market in Lima, the capital." Arequipa's risks are probably smaller than most other Andean urban centers. Volcano erruptions are less frequent than landslides, mudslides and flooding.
