... about it, although I got plenty of pictures to try and give an idea. Bruno got talking to one of the priests, the priest had seen his Superman t-shirt and liked it, he told us that he wears his when he takes off his robe. After I had snapped up all the pictures I could we headed off to the Catacombs, we weren't supposed to take pictures there, however Bruno managed to grab a couple here and there when no one was looking. The catacombs weren't exactly what ...

So after 20 hours on a bus we eventually made it to Huacachina, an oasis in the desert. On the first night we tried to walk up to the top of the sand dune overlooking the oasis but only got half way as it was 200000 times higher than we thought.

The boat journey was absolutely horrendous, I didnt realise the tour was on a boat ...

Well im officially fed up of reggaeton, especially at 2:30am. It was being blasted from the bar which was directly outside my room. Room 115 is the worst! Even the ear plugs couldnt drown it out. It stopped at 3am and i was up at 4:50 to climb the dune to try get a timelapse of the sunrise. Just my luck, i get to the top and its foggy. The timelapse was a failure. Called it a day and went back ...

and I was able to explore the oasis a bit. Huacachina was both very cool and a letdown. The oasis water was dirty and polluted and filled with cheap paddle boats for rent, but at least it was a true oasis. The surrounding sand dunes rose impressively in each direction reminding me a lot of the middle east.

I wandered for about half an hour, munching on a nestle ice cream bar before reporting for my dune buggy tour. Here I met a British couple ...
