 <note tip>: We weren’t warned that you couldn’t take a backpack on the plane. So ended up scrabbling for a small bag that we could put all our valuables and passports in so we could take them on. So go with as little as possible on you to carry. Also the temperature on the plane can vary, so take a couple of layers and dress up or down accordingly </​note>​ <note tip>: We weren’t warned that you couldn’t take a backpack on the plane.

-The plane took about 12 passengers, and everyone got a window seat. The seat belt was substantial – designed to hold you in if the plane did any sharp manoevours. ​[{{ :​holidays:​abroad:​peru:​paracas_flight_2.jpg|}}]+The plane took about 12 passengers, and everyone got a window seat.

 It took about half an hour to fly overland to Nazca – and when you look down, it’s very clear that we’re making our own Nazca lines. They are there everywhere, in dead straight tarmac roads and dirt tracks that go as far as the eye can see. Then there are patchworks of fields with dead straight sides, filled with green, amongst the dryness of the desert. The journey there is fascinating and worth a few photographs. It took about half an hour to fly overland to Nazca – and when you look down, it’s very clear that we’re making our own Nazca lines.

 So although I thought we’d actually get to see Nazca town (with all its tat souvenir shops), we didn’t. But with hindsight, I think Paracas is a better base – and it’s a lovely relaxing end to the holiday. So although I thought we’d actually get to see Nazca town (with all its tat souvenir shops), we didn’t.

 We arrived back mid-afternoon to another expensive sandwich, then had another siesta. In the evening we strolled to the Hilton next door, decided their food was more diverse but even more expensive, and ended with another expensive meal in our own hotel’s restaurant. We arrived back mid-afternoon to another expensive sandwich, then had another siesta.
