In the air we bank and circle over a series of lines, geometric designs and geoglyphs, including a whale, a condor, a monkey, a spider, a hummingbird - and an astronaut? Clearly aliens must be behind this? Or just plain human ingenuity and imagination.

Other remains of the people who drew these lines are in the local museum, skulls and a few shards of pots.
