Today we got up super early, not only to wish steph's big sister a happy birthday but also to take a flight from the smallest aircraft we have ever been in, in order to view the mystery that is the Nazca lines. 

The plane only had 6 seats (2 for the captains and 4 for passengers) but it felt remarkably safe. We soared over the desert viewing the strange lines, shapes and pictures that the Nazca people made thousands of years ago. 

Again the pictures say more than we can in this town. There is a warning to any arachnaphobics out there, there is a picture of a spider!

We also managed to fit in a quick planetarium tour which talked about the various different theories behind why all these weird lines are everywhere, got to see Saturn through a telescope (still very small), saw the plough upside down and got a pretty good view of the moon too. Obviously less light pollution in the desert than in London...

Nazca gets a thumbs up. Next stop Arequipa and the deepest canyons in the world. Rock on!
