It was in Peru in 2006.
I was very lucky.
I made a trip in the south of Peru during one month.
I leave with my family on an AIR France fly from Paris to Caracass.
The fly durated around 10 hours.
I was really happy to land at Caracass and to walk under a very nice sun and a very hot weather.
On the tarmac, there were several private jets.
After two hour, we took off from Caracass to Lima.
Lima was created in 1535 by Francisco Pizarro who was the chief of spanish conquistador.
Today, Lima is the economic center of the country and its capital.
There are about ten million of inhabitants who live there.
I wandered on the beach and I did not swim because the water and the wind were cold.
During the day, there were a lot of boys who played football.
During my last lunch before to leave from Lima to Pisco, I ate a gorgeous meal, a ceviche.
It is a seafood which marinated in lemon juice.
We took a local bus to leave Lima to go to Pisco.
This city is in the south of Lima and there is 290 km betwen both cities.
It was really interesting to travel with local people even if I do not speak spanish.
The bus stopped on the beach and we got off.
Close to boats and people, there are a lot of pélicans.
They are waiting for the return of fishmen.
We took a boat to visit Ballestas Islands.
On the way, we could see an amazing candlestick carved on the hill.
Ballestas aera, is a collection of islands where locate a nature reserve.
I saw a lot of birds like pélicans, penguins, cormorants and sea animals like sea lions, seals and dolphins… The tops of these islands are totally guano covered.
During a long time, guano was the main raw material from this région of Peru.
A very big volume were exported in the direction of Europe.
We went back to the beach where we took a fastly lunch.
After we ran away with a very big ATV to go to Nazca via Ica.
There are around 250 km on the Panamericana which cross the désert.
I saw a plenty of amazing and beautiful landscaps.
On the way side, there are a lot of little house with flowers for car accident.
Unfortunately, there are too many accidents on the peruvian roads.
We splet close to Nazca, in a very nice hacienda in the middle of woods.
We took our dinner and we went to sleep.
We wake up very early, because we go to Nazca lines.
This masterwork was discovered in 1927 by a Peruvian archaeologist Toribio Mejia Xesspe.
The only solution to see all lines, is to take a plane or a helicopter.
With several tourists, we took off and fly above the lines.
During the fly, I had the impression to be a milkcheck.
The pilot inclined the plane on the left and the right for everybody watched this monument.
We can see some engraving stand for monkey, birds, lizards and the largest pattern are over 200 meters.
At this moment, you think, how it was possible to do that.
They need a lot of people to engrave and during the réalisation nobody can not see all work.
It is a real mystery.
I was really happy to land. .
At the end of the fly, normally we had to take our lunch but nobody want to eat.
