South America Day 21: Nazca to Paracas

January 2012

Up late to leave at 9:30 am. We stopped at the Nazca viewing lines to get a different perspective of the lines.

 We drove for about 3.5 hours to get to Ica, a oasis in the middle of the desert.

After a lunch of sandwiches, DH took a buggy up into the dunes for sand boarding.

We drove for another 30 minutes before stopping to taste different varieties of Piscos.

Due to Pisco being hit by a large earthquake a few years back accommodation is best sought at nearby Paracas.

We had dinner near the sea that night, Inca cola, sole ceviche and avocado salad while DH had the grilled sea bass.

We visited the Paracas hotel to try Pisco sours in there lounge, realising that anything we had tried previously had been heavily diluted!
