Our Ica trip (as for most visitors) is for sand boarding. And so it was.
We had a nice little breakfast sitting under the trees in the garden laughing at the interaction of the multitude of noisy birds (parrots, cockatoos etc that they have), the kitten and the dog. All of the pets appear to be mad.
At 11 we were bundled into an 8-seater 4x4 vehicle that I wont even try to describe (refer photos) for a bit of adrenaline prior to our first effort at sand boarding. The ride is awesome and gives a real rush. Almost vertical drops, corners at 45 degrees and some serious speed over the san. At the sight of the first downhill we were all wondering why there were no baby slopes to get us started.
After that we just went and chilled at the pool at the hostel for a while with a couple of English and Dutch guys.
We popped into Ica for a bite and to find out about a tour to Nasca. Not too much to see.
