So we are now in Santiago. Not had very much luck these last few days, firstly my memory card on my camera seems to have screwed up, I can see the photos on my camera but not being recognised on the computer anymore. Thankfully I saved most of them to the computer but all of the Nazca lines are on there so hopefully there will be some way to rescue them when I get back.
So between my last blog and now we have been to the Amazon, fantastic, flew from Lima to Iquitos, 3 days in the jungle in an amazing lodge along the river. Saw river the infamous pink dolphins that only exist in the Amazon, so many birds, monkeys, snakes, spiders, cayman and mosquitos. I´m quite a hit with the mosquitos in this country I must say. After a long journey back to Iquitos, one night there and then on the plane to Lima, one night in Lima and bus down to Huacachina. Flew over the Nazca lines which was fun, then went sandboarding which was great!! Unfortunately no pictures of the lines (though on my camera so fingers crossed) and Amelia has some of the dunes on her disposable camera, but I really loved Huacachina. We stayed in a really great hostel, very friendly people and the dunes were beautiful. The ride in the buggy was really cool, then down on our stomaches down the dunes, each one getting steeper, quite scary but glad I didn´t bottle out of it. So I´m going to upload some photos from the Amazon, try and catch up with myself and I´ll be back soon, from Argentina! Love to you all xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
