Having a beer on the shore of the Pacific in Paracas.

I am now in Paracas while on a tour of the Southern coast of Peru.  The city might have a couple thousand residents and other than that there is nothing to do here but to work on my blog.  I was originally going to stay in the city of Pisco, but it looked pretty sketchy and my bus driver suggested I come here which is a bit bigger and on the water.

I apparently left my Lonely Planet guide book in my hostal in Lima so now I am relying on the advice of others.  I sketched out the next couple of days of my trip after talking to a few girls who were headed from the south to Lima.  It is amazing how you trust the advice and recommendation of people whose name you don´t know and who you never met before.  After planning my trip, I found out that one was English and the other was Irish and they are both travelling around South America for six months, but I never did learn their names.

Tommorrow, I will be going to Ballestas Islands which are known as the poor man´s Galapogos Islands, followed by a city called Huachachina tomorrow where I can go sandboarding,Nazca on Wednesday morning and Arequippa (Peru´s second largest city) on Wednesday night.  Not really sure how I am getting back to Santiago right now where I have a flight to Dallas from on Saturday night, but hopefully things will work themselves out over the next couple days.
