Sand boarding in Huacachina

... on the floor and then tell you it's dirty water. When they then do the kind thing by offering to help they pinch things out of your bag and then get off. No doubt disappointed the friendly local then got off the bus only a few hundred meters after starting, and before the ticket guy came around. Finally the Lonely Planet advice about busses came in handy. Four and a half hours later we arrived in Lima, and our first impression was, it's a dump, quite literally with rubbish ...

... looking for a party, but on average we're a little older looking to experience new things, a new culture, and maybe have a drink or two before a (comparatively) decent bedtime. We've got a woman in her late 30s taking an 8 month sabbatical; a woman in her late 50s/early 60s just traveling indefinitely; at least three in the group are in their late 20s and just quit their jobs to travel - one couple just to before they settle down and one because she ...

We had a 16 hour night bus to Ica where we could get a cab to Haucacina, so we got on all ready with our hats and scarfs for the notoriously cold busses - hottest night ever!

We went for a wander around the town which is crazy - it's a tiny town all centred around an oasis ...

... on. Its tough to board since the sand creates more friction, so unless youre comfortable with going straight down with little to no control, its easier to slide down on the board on your stomach. It was also possible to rent better gear, a proper board with boots and bindings, but again its still difficult to board down because of friction. It was an awesome first day in Huacachina, espeically ending on the top of a dune to watch the sunset and again take some ...

... the capital city of Peru. Couple this with the fact that the Jesus statue was about as big as the Toys R Us giraffe and I was distinctly underwhelmed. I think the guide must have realized this because he quickly ushered us away to a beachfront restaurant for some fresh Cervice (Peru´s answer to Sushi).

After stopping to check out how the Spanish used to torture slaves (manacles, hammers and underground dungeons apparently) we made it to our ...
