Mancora...an arrival at 4am did little justice to this place. An absolutely stunning view met me this morning...sun, sea and surfers. I´m looking forward to relaxing on the beach for two days, then off into the highlands again.

Huanchanco...or wherever we are...a beach town where the fishermen go out on reed boats, then surf back in..crazy! Tomorrow we go to see a moon and sun temple, you guessed it more ruins, although think these are pre-Inca. We´re also going to see the largest city built of mud, chinca...interesting? guess I´ll find out tomorrow...then off on our last night bus to Mancora...supposedly the best beach resort in Peru-woo hoo!

After lunch we had a swim at the oasis...rathe...
Nasca...not as great as I´d thought it would be. Didn´t do the flight as was told it was not really worth it, and after a night bus from hell really didn´t want to get up that early especially for that privellage. On our way to Ica we stopped at the watch tower to view two of the lines, the tree and the hand. The ground where the lines are can no longer be walked or driven on, but this only came into effect about 30 years ago, so there are lots of other track...
