I went to Nasca with one dream in mind: fly above the sky to admire the imfamous Nasca lines from above through a bird's eyes. So, early in the morning, Arco, a Dutch friend and I took a flight on a 4-passenger Cesna aeroplane to see the Nasca lines. Seeing them from the air was amazing. On TV they always look so large and huge, but from the plane they looked small. It wasn't until I heard that each of the dozen lines I saw was over 100 feet that I was truly amazed. The Nasca lines were created by the Nasca civilization depicting several forms such us a whale, a monkey, a spider, a humming bird, a condor, a dog, a pair of hands, an astronaut, a parrot, etc. The most convincing theory to date, in my opinion, is the one suggesting the lines were used by shamans or priests on some sort of religious and drug induce journey on hot air balloons.
- Pros:Nasca Lines
- Cons:Bumpy flight, even in the mornings :)
