getting sick in nazca

well, as written yesterday, a packed day was ahead: the morning on the ballestas islands, lunch at a pisco distillery and the afternoon driving sand buggies and seeing the nazca lines

unfortunately it was also pretty hot that day and some of the food wasn't all too healthy it seems... but more on that later

the islands were great, we had a speedboat tour around the islands and could see tons of sealions and even more kinds of birds living on the rocks.

afterwards, we had a private bus to the wine/pisco distillery were they guided us through the old machines and let us try some of the products... before lunch of course which probably wasnt a good idea :) i could barely eat my lunch and felt even worse than in the morning.

we continued to the huacachina oasis in the desert were we jumped on buggies and did some sandboarding. it was great, although everything's full with sand now. the minute we were back at the oasis my body shut down and i collapsed, probably because of too much heat / dehydration / bad food... but after 14 hours of sleep i'm feeling ok again

4, 5 other poeple in the group got sick yesterday so it might just as well be a virus going around or something. anyway, i'm gonna pass doing the nazca lines by plane and will hang around at the airport in the shadow
