Nazca by Air

The Nazca lines are one of those archeological mysteries that seem so strange since the creators could never have appreciated them as we do today. This was my second trip to see them and what I noticed more this time was the bleak and bareness of the surroundings. Coastal Peru is arid and mostly desert, and what are you doing making kilometer long drawings in the sand and rocks, Dancing?
