Day 12 - Highways of the Gods

Nazca, Peru


Having come come this far, and with remote chances of every returning to see Nazca again, I am back next morning for a new flight - but with a different operator.

Everything around the crew's checks and preparations for the flight seem measured and unhurried.


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.
