Where I stayed
Desert Nights Hostel
Thats why Im heading to Cuzco as soon as possible. Thats a mystical mountain town and theres a lot to do there. But for my last day in the desert, Im gonna try sandboarding maybe. Or ride a buggy on the dunes. Then Ill head to Nazca not to see the lines (im too poor now for the flight) but just to see a cemetery burial ground of the nazcas and then take the overnight bus to Cuzco.
Im finally at hostels again and this one is interesting because its attached to a restaurant
Anyway, I miss the kids already. They were watching Up when I left and were eating popcorn. A lot of them were sad that I was leaving but at least we had our proper goodbye.
Update - I had a wonderful dinner and I felt full of food for once. It was nice staying at the volunteer place, but the food had not been as satisfying you know.
So after a sleepless morning (one of the hostel workers slept in the room and snored all night), I woke up and did a tour. Had a great time riding the dunes in a buggy. Then we hit the dunes and I tried the first time to go down a la snowboarder. I got in reverse position and couldnt get it back to nose first so I ended up taking a fall toward the bottom. Im glad it was toward the bottom at least. It was a hard fall and I have sand scratches on my face to show for it. The rest of the time I just slid down the dunes and it was great fun and got a few good pictures out of it.
Then when I got back I could not believe how much sand I accumulated in my clothes, in my ears, nose, hair, face, etc. I think the pictures of my face show a lot of sand. All in all a cheap adventure even if I did pay full price.
