We left Lima, eager to get out of the, hustle and bustle and into a quieter, more natural environment. Our next stop Huacachina, Peru! As soon as we were out of the city the the landscape quickly merged from slums clinging to the edge of the mountains, to barren, scorched desert. We arrived in Ica, after a surprisingly smooth 5hour bus ride. Ica itself was just a miniature version of Lima. We quickly jumped in the first (smallest) taxi we could find to drive the 7km to the little Oasis town of Huacachina.
After the second go, we have warmed up and are ready for higher and higher dunes. So back in the buggy we go, twisting and almost rolling our way around looking for bigger dunes to scare the pants off us. The only thing between us and the sand is the roll bars we hope are sturdy enough to protect us.
After a couple of days of relaxation, and a good dose of adrenalin, we are ready to move on. Next stop Nazca.
