Things are looking up for Peru.
Today will mark our second consecutive day in Peru without a negative incident...knock on wood!
We left Lima yesterday after procuring a new good quality helpmet to protect Kevin's noggin. Our destination was Pisco, but on the way there we met a very nice couple when we stopped for lunch and they suggested that we stay in nearby Paracas. We followed their advice because it is the right thing to do when someone buys you desert and it turned out very well.
This morning we took an early tour to the Ballesta Islands 20km off the coast of Paracas. These islands are known as "the poor man's Galapagos" and the excursion was well worth the price of admission: Beautiful waters, lots of feathered friends to look at, sea lions, and even penguins!
Tomorrow we are scheduled for a 10:30am flight over the famous and mysterious Nazca Lines.
