DAY 93 - 94: 15th October - 16th October: Pisco, Peru
Pisco takes its name from the conical pottery in which it was originally aged. The first vineyards were planted in the coastal valleys in the Viceroyalty of Peru, when vine plants arrived from the Canary Islands.
We couldn't leave Nazca without seeing the Nazca lines - so we stopped off at a look out tower but to be honest they were a bit of a let down and I would not advise anyone to go there if they are short on time in Peru. We arrived at a place called Ica for lunch and sand boarding. Sand boarding was so much fun. We then got back onto the minibus and headed to Pisco where we learnt about how Pisco is made and processed we then headed to Parracas where we were going to stay for the night. That evening we went down to the beach for dinner.
