Nazca mummies and temples

all seasons in one day

After camping on the lawn of the hotel resort...(little silly) and a group breakfast we waited for our guide Johnson to meet up with us. We headed off into the desert and I mean the desert. The roads if you could call them that were hardly distinguishable. We arrived at the Nazca pyramid/ temple which was dicovered by an Itallian no less and it has taken 20 years just to unearth one of what they think are many hidden under the sand dumes. After our interesting tour of the temple we got to ride on roof top seats on our overland vehicle in through the desert! So much fun!!! Next it was off to see the mummies at the Cementerio de Chauchilla. Here we were lead to tombs where 2000 year old mummies, pottery, food and clothes are still perserved because of the deserts natural climate. (there is no f!"#$ apostrophie on this keyboard....yea the keyboards are quite a site at times...).

When that was done we drove to our next location, Purto Inca. t was a hillside ocean front bungalo resort in the center of Incan Ruins. We had a fire and Atilla made a fabulous dinner for us all!
Today we spent most of the day driving to Arequipa a city located in the valley of some impressive snow capped mountians and a volcano. Our bags should be meeting us here with in the hour. More later as we are getting ready to go out for dinner for a group meal. We will be here for the next two nights. Hopefully we will be able to post a picture or two as well.....Hopefully...if we get our bags... and the computer works....LOL
Thanks for reading and the comments. We love you guys!!! Feel free to send me all the gossip I am missing as well.
