Today we have been chilling out around the oasis, watching the sand buggies take up other tourists (who have no idea what they are in for!!). Huacachina really is an awesome but slightly bizarre place. We left after lunch, and visited the Pisco Winery. We went on a tour to see how Pisco (the Peruvian national drink) was made. The grapes are crushed by men stamping on them! We then tried some samples ...

Sandboarding Huacachina

Next up, a two day stopover in the desert oasis village of Huacachina for some extreme sand boarding and sand buggy's. The desert was massive and the views were very impressive, but in reality, we only came here for the boarding. Anyone traveling Peru has to stopover here and try this sport, it is so much fun!

As a side note, don't do shots of Pisco....Steve's head definitely didn't thank him the next day.

It was a tough walk to the top but we pushed through the hot sand to the top and waited for sunset. It unfortunately grew cold and we had to head down early to change. Dinner tonight we ventured out and found a great local place with a cheap set menu and huge portions. Well satisfied we headed in search of sublime ice creams and bed (Sublimes ...
