Nazca, Peru, sep 7 - sep 11, 2012

"Spread across an incredible 500 sq km of arid, the Nazca Lines remain one of the world’s great archaeological mysteries. Consisting of more than 800 straight lines, 300 geometric figures and, concentrated in a relatively small area, some 70 spectacular animal and plant drawings, the Lines are almost imperceptible at ground level. It’s only when viewed from above that they form their striking network of enormous stylized figures and channels." - LP Peru. We booked an overflight with a small cessna. It is impressive to see these figures and you have to ask yourself why and how did they do it? Well, surprisingly we haven't come up with an answer yet, but we were happy to leave the airplane before our motion sickness got too bad. ;) During our stay locals celebrated the patron saint la virgen de Guadalupe: Live music, fireworks, balloons and masked llamas. :)
