Sand Boarding Mayhem!

We booked a sand boarding tour today, was wicked fun!
Basically it involves jumping in a buggee and roaming the sand dunes through the desert. We also got to sand board and it was terrifying at first because they are pretty steep and you go down on the board head first and pick up some serious speed! It was so awesome. The tur went for about 1 hour or so, we thought it was 2 hours but it was enough. The buggee was pretty fun aswell because the guide takes you over some rollercoaster-scary bumps.
We got back to our hostal and decided to meet the resident monkey. It was looking for food and not too interested in us so Nathan went and grabbed a Papaya (apparently they love them). His attention was soon fixed on us and he wasnt shy to climb all over us. Infact, he decided to piss on Nathan which I found pretty funny anyway! We dont really know what to think about it (how they keep monkeys as pets) but the monkey seemed to love the human interaction and I guess he seemed very well looked after. I guess we keep fish, cats, mice and dogs so its just the same here. The guy from the hostal also found it odd we were so amazed by this monkey, as they have them everywhere.
Off to Nazca tonight, it is only a few hours away so not such a drag!
