16 years of dreaming (From the time I read Tintin and Prisoners of the Sun) 6 months of researching & planning, and heightened anticipation later the day is finally here!!! We are setting off to Peru.
Here is our trip map:
We start at Lima, wander in and around Lima for 2 days and then set off to Cuzco where we acclimatize ourselves to the altitude before we set off on a 4 day trek on the Inca trail to Machu Picchu. We are then going to relax in the hot springs of Agues Calientes (Hot water literally!)
Back to Cusco and then To Arequipa where we are staying with a Peruvian family and from visit the Colca Canyon where we are absolutely looking forward to spot the Andean condors. We then head to relax in an oasis Huacachina where we will sand board and dune bug yoohooo. We then head to Nazca take an aerial gander at the Nazca lines, the famous and mysterious geoglyphs ( One of the theories of existence proposed by Eric Von Daniken's 'Chariot of God's?' ) We then set off to Pisco to get drunk on... what else Pisco!! A short trip to Ballestas Islands (mini Gallapagos) later we get back to Lima to fly home
We know we are going to chant Te amo Peru!!!
FEEDING OUR FACES
Although this trip is far from being gastronomic, we are looking forward to sampling everything we can, like:
chifa : Peruvian- chinese fusion food
Pizza: Pizzerias are hazaar famous in Agues Calientes especially
Have fun till then. See y'all later.
