Huacachina, Peru

Well once your on the tourist trail you might as well stay on that bandwagon right??? Damn straight! With that in mind we left Pisco and Paracas behind and headed south to the sand dunes and oasis of Huacachina.  Like Paracas it existes solely for tourists, both national and international. We managed to find a reasonably priced place to stay, some reasonably priced food and beer and avoided anyone trying to sell us tours. You certainly have to watch what you pay for when you still have five and a half months of travelling to go.

It was easy enough to get an idea of the extent of the sand dunes by climbing up those that surrounded the town. And boy they sure are big and sure go a long way!! After a couple of leg burning climbs and with thoroughly excoliated feet we felt like our time was done and we caught the bus to Nazca to start spending some money.

Who brought this guy!! Shameful!

Star Wars. That is all.
PS probably need more moons but you get the idea.
