I was sitting in the front seat of the plane, so had a pretty good view of everything. There were 5 others along for the flight in our little plane. It didn't take long before we were at our first figure. The best was the hummingbird, but we also saw the monkey, spider, condor, astronaut, whale, lizard, tree and frog and I almost also saw my breakfast come up on the cockpit dashboard with the effects of airsickness.
The trip lasted less than an hour, but was well worth the time taken to get there and the airsickness felling from flying about in circles in a lightweight plane. At one point the pilot let me have the controls and I completed a few loop de loops and barrel rolls. Not.
There isn't really a lot else in Nazca so I had lunch at a crazy cafe covered in grafitti before catching the bus out to Cusco.
