After our flight we had about 10 hours to kill before our overnight bus to Arequipa so we lounged around the hotel affiliated with the tour company we booked our flight and bus through.
Along the Peruvian coast on the way to Lake Titicaca is Nazca. Not much to see here from the ground that is, it looks like another dusty town with sand and dirt and lots and lots of dry fields. It's what's in the dusty plains that draw so many tourists. The way to see Nazca is to get up in a plane and look at it from the sky. From there you can see the amazing lines that Nazca is famous for. There are lines in the shape of a monkey, birds, a spider and many more. Rick enjoyed the 30 minute flight checking out the mysterious forms. Megan however enjoyed the plastic bag stuffed into the seat pocket for those who couldn't handle the continual steep turns! Rick did a fantastic job of simultaneously rubbing Megan's back, taking photos and filming on the video camera.
