Nazca forth and back, managed to get plane sick and then wen´t to Huacca China

(Blogging from the phone, photos taken with my iPhone) – photos of nazca will be posted later. We started the day super early. Left the hotel Posada del sol. Very nice stay for a very low price. The hotel was close to plaza de armas in Ica Peru, costed 40 sol for 2 persons (93sek, 14 dollar or 10 euro) and had both shower, comfortable bed, wi-fi and gave us 2 soaps which we now brought to the new hotel in Huacca China, the oasis outside Ica.

This is the oasis Huacca China sprung from the legend of a crying princess. Today a backpacker miniparadise where you can eat, sleep, sunbade, swim, climb the desert hills or go on a drive on the dunes or head down the slopes on a board. Me and my partner in crime, kept to climbing one hill on foot, took about two sweaty hours late afternoon and gave us a fantastic sunset and high speed jumping photos.

We stayed at a hostel/hotel in the oasis named Salvatierra, build in 1935. Room for married or unmarried committing a sin as we do, costed 60 sol. But then we had private room and shower in that price. The hotel also had wi-fi, but this didn’t work for us when we where there. There where also a pool which we took a late night swim in. In the morning we walked across the oasis and had some fantastic American Breakfast, so nice since we have been having the Sopa Seca for two days before. The Sopa Seca is no sopa, but a stew, pasta and meat dish which is the food that originate from the food brought here by the african slaves a long time ago.

  1. Gillar foton med Martin på korridoren. Jag får en känsla av skräck där någon döljer sig i skuggorna. Kanske ET som spökar.

  2. The Hotel Posada sounds great value. ET looks in need of a diet but I think I would share an ice cream with him too. Travel safely.

    • hahaa 🙂 yes. it did. I think that Martin will add this one to tripadvisor if he recovers the strength after this much traveling over the short amount of time.

  3. Sounds like you got some good hotel deals, Katarina ! That shot of Martin walking away reminds me VERY MUCH of one of the shots you took when you were leaving home !!! 🙂
