Flag of Peru  , Paracas,
Saturday, May 17, 2008

Since today Felicia gets older, we decided to pack our day with activities! First up, we wake up very early and headed out to Paracas where we visited Las Islas Ballestas - aka poor man's Galapagos.

Despite the insanely vast numbers of birdses, I a) did not get eaten by a pelican [huge ones were wandering along the pier]; b) I did not get attacked by the flocks; and c) I did not get shit on -- this is quite common, considering the sheer number of airborne bombers.

What we managed was to see LOTS of birds, and the adorable sea lions!!! I saw a particularly adorable one and named it "Plip Plop" (after flip-flops!). Cuteness!

After that, we went dune-buggying and sandboarding. SUPER DUPER FUN, like a roller-coaster on wheels, and then we were having a crazy good time rushing down the dunes on our boards. The craziest time was when we sandboarded down a MASSIVE dune on our bellies and went ultra fast.

Definitely one of the most memorable bird-days EVER! YAAY!

birds, flip flops and other insanities
ok, i've to say - the massive walls / blocks of birds grossed me out. eeks!

am quite intrigued by the sea lions. intrigued that they can flop their way up the cliffy-looking rocks. AND flop their way down after their naps.

the buggy looks great! nice n big. not like the cutsy-ones at golf courses. happy birthday, Feli 'The Bad Ass' Wong!

I asked the same qn abt the sea lions too. Rob thinks they got up there when the tide was high. We saw them just jumping off into the water though! PLOP!
