Afterwards, papa went to the room as I studied the model of the maze. Apparently papa noticed me acting quite weird and confronted me when I got back. He showed me a draft on my blog which repeated "All work no play makes Adam a dull boy". I felt very offended and tried to punch him. It was then I realized he had a bat and next thing I knew, I was locked in the kitchen refrigerator.
Lucky for me, Lloyd (pronounced y-oid in Spanish) was there to set me free. I found a fire axe and began my search to kill papa.
I finally managed to find him and violently axed the door down to his hotel room and in a growling roar said "Heeeeeeeere's Adam!"
And I think you know how the story goes. And Shelley Duvall is ugly.
That's how our Night in Nasca, Peru went.
The next morning we drove to the Nasca airport, which is actually the 2nd busiest airport in Peru. This is because the Nasca lines are very popular among tourists who come to Peru, as well as, home grown Peruvians.
We boarded our dozen person propellor plane and began a hot flight over the arid Nasca desert plain. We gutted out the multiple G turns, dips, and dives (Guy Fieri style, only we didn't look like Jersey Shore Swedes with cool cars).
The pilots would turn to each side, showing us the ancient lines drawn up in the desert floor roughly 1200-1500 years ago. These lines differ from animals to shapes to figures... At least 10,000 different lines and 300 different figures span over the barren surface. The intersting part about the lines is how they have survived this long, given they are only dug about 8-10 inches into the stony ground. One of the reasons for this is because the sand briefly covers them during the day, however winds during the night brush the sand away. It is impossible to see these lines from the ground or even from towers or mountains of the surrounding areas. The most effective way is to fly, which is why this is so interesting. Were these messages to the gods? Was this a primitive sort of calendar? Maybe they were mimicking constellations they believed they saw in the stars... These are all questions that cannot be answered and possibly will never be.
It was an interesting couple days, considering we relived "The Shining" (if you didn't catch on) and got to see an ancient enigma.
Off to Caral in the morning, the oldest city in America.
