AREQUIPA - COLCA CANYON - NAZCA - LIMA, PERU

Vores næste destinationer på vores 3 ugers rejse igennem Peru var helt fantastiske. Vi så endnu flere smukke landskaber, besøgte små landsbyer og kastede os ud i en masse nye ting. I Colca Canyon så vi kondorer flyve ned igennem dalen, i Nazca så vi de mystiske Nazca Lines - som min veninde så oppe fra et propelfly af, og så kom vi også lige forbi en ørken. I ørkenen kørte vi rundt i en bungee, og det var seriøst noget af det sjoveste, jeg har prøvet, da chaufføren kørte hele sindssygt og kørte op på de højeste sandbakker, for så at køre direkte ned igen. Det var som at sidde i den sygeste rutsjebane, og jeg var lige ved at tisse i mine bukser, haha. Derudover så sand boardede vi der også, og det var lidt grænseoverskridende, men så snart man var trillet de første par meter, var det slet ikke så slemt. Vi sluttede vores tur af i Lima, som er en hovedstad med et meget stort H - da der bor knapt 10 mio. indbyggere her. Men det betød også, at vi skulle sige farvel til vores gruppe, som vi blev ret så tætte med, hvilket var en smule sørgmodigt. Men, vi skulle dog starte vores nye tur nogle dage efter, og det holdte humøret oppe. Vi skulle dog først lige hoppe på et fly fra Lima til Quito i Ecuador, før at vores næste del af eventyret kunne fortsætte... stay tuned.

Our next destinations on our 3 weeks trip through Peru were incredible. We saw more unique landscapes, visited some very small villages and towns and tried some new things. In Colca Canyon we saw condors flying through the valley, in Nazca we saw the mysterious Nazca Lines, which my friend saw from a propeller aircraft and furthermore we stopped by a desert. In the desert we drove in a bungee and it was beyond fun driving in such vehicle as the chauffeur kept doing drops all the time and drove like crazy. It was like sitting in a rollercoaster and I nearly peed in my pants, haha. In the desert we sand boarded and that was super transboundary but as soon as you actually were on the move, it was fun as well. We ended our 3 weeks trip in Lima, which is a capital city with a very big C - 10 mio. people live here. Sadly, we had to say goodbye to our group we got really close with during the weeks and that was with mixed feelings. However, we should start our next trip a few days after, but first we had to catch our plane from Lima to Quito, in Ecuador in order to start the next chapter of your adventure... stay tuned.
