After 30 hours in 4 different planes and a total of 31 hours waiting in 4 different airports I finally made it to Peru!
I arrived in Lima a week ago and ran away as soon as I could (really not a nice city) towards the South.
What I really wanted to do was to catch a flight (yes I know, I´m addicted now) to Iquitos, which is in the North where the real, wild Amazon is supposed to be. Unfortunately, the flight was ridiculously expensive, so I opted for the South Coast instead.
The landscape is kind of weird here: the desert on one side and the ocean on the other. They often meet in the most unlikely way, it's really spectacular.
At the moment I'm in Huacachina, which is a very tiny oasis in the middle of the desert, not far from Ica. It´s really surreal, as you´ll see from the pics.
Next stop Nazca, to see the very famous and mysterious Nazca Lines.
I've decided to stop in Cusco for 2 weeks for intensive Spanish lessons in order to be ready for voluntary work, as at the moment my written Spanish is pretty poor...
Apart from Lima, the first impression of Peru is very good, even though it´s apparently a pretty dangerous country. Nothing happened to me but hotel owners never stop telling me to be careful (with my possessions, walking alone, breathing I suppose too...). So I am careful.
