Where I stayed
The smallest place I have been so far, it is purely a lake in the middle of nowhere and very stunning. There is a lot of sand and plenty of buggies of which Fernando is the craziest driver. As this was the case that is who we asked for when booking the sand boarding. However, they all go by the name Fernando, for some reason at the moment, although there is only one true one. If you go look for the guy with grey hair and a cheeky smile (we only found out after that our Fernando was a fake). The real give away was when, I think, a Russian girl came back shouting at the driver in all sorts of hysterical states!
I thought again this would be a cruise. Sand boarding is much harder than snow and you eat a hell of a lot more sand. There were some really big dunes and all the people I was within the buggy decided to lie flat, as did I, and in this case I was right to. Hell of an experience.
We wanted a bus to Nasca to see the famous Nasca lines in the morning but by 8.30 p.m. they had all left. Luckily, there was a taxi madman with crazy eyes t take us. He took a liking to Suzanna which was also beneficial for Tamara and I as he was willing to take us for a cheaper fare and a few favors from Suz (AKA Zues). It was the most uncomfortable ride but the funniest so far.
