Great couple days. travelled from Lima to Paracas, moving through incredibly dry desert and sparce population. Up early in Paracas to jump on a boat to the Ballestas islands which are teeming with life! Sea lions galore, penguins and more birds than you can imagine. Beautiful tour and well worth it to see so much wildlife together. Another highlight and ended too quickly.
Then it was a rush to get the next bus out of Paracas and to the Nazca lines. Even deeper and drier desert with mountains of sand and rocks all around. Really harsh but beautiful landscape. Quick dinner, early bed (Calina is already out at 8pm 😁), and then tomorrow morning we jump on a small plane to fly over the Nazca lines. Nice little town this too, with sweet potato donuts!
