Multi coloured

Look to the sky

It's mine!

Oy

I won

Take a photo, hurry up

On my mark - look to the left, now

Clear for landing

Sunday wash

Am I clean?

Picturesque

How does it stay up?

One of many islands

Paracas' drawing

Penguins close up

On the next one we go

Why is it only me...?

Catedral

Help me up

Caves

Do I look pretty?

Look busy

Boobies

Think they forgot to finish the bridge

Count the birds

Take me home

Looking cute

Leave me alone

I'm too tired to play

How comes all the poop missed us, Ste?

Lunch

Underwater balerinas

Day light

More pelicans

Flapping around

Poopless


21/6 Went for walk round town trying to find something different for breakfast. Failed though so Lenkie had fruit salad and Stevie had Americano, as usual. Back and pack. Taxi driver charges 2 soles for 10 metres to bus terminal. Catch the bus at 11am where we watch World cup on a moving bus. At Pisco surrounded by tour operators and hostel pimps. Lenkie screams - but we still go with one. The pimp lies through his teeth. We leave the horrible hotel only to find that they followed us. We quickly flag a rickshaw, dive in and get away from them. Go with a place from LP. Booked bird tour for tomorrow and found out about a bus to Lima. Afternoon spent watching TV. Went to a nice restaurant for dinner. Both had fish.

22/6 Up at 6.15 and ready for out pick up at 7am. Not surprisingl the bus was 30min late. By 8am we were all accounted for and on the way. It only took about 20min to get to Paracas. Here a quick few photos of pelicans, that are as big as condors - 3m. Steve had to pee and missed the photo staged feeding. It was time to board our speed boat, only thanks to Steve's tiny blooder we nearly left him behind. He only just made it. We were therefore left with the worst seats on the boat - right at the back by the 2

motors. These seats however proved to be the best seats although a bit smelly. 10min later and we were taking photos of Paracas (pre Inca civilasation) hill side drawing - a bit like the Nazca lines. Another 10 min and we've reached the Bollestas Islands. There were large collonies of Peruvian seagals, pelicans, cormorans, boobies, Hamboldt penquins and sea lions. We did not see any jelly fish, though only a few crabs. They were all putting on a show for us. Most memorably the cormorans diving in like a high speed arrow for their fish and the sea lions playing in the water and posing on the shore. There was 1000s of Guanos (sea birds) and the droppings were flying left, right and centre. We got lucky though. After about an 1hr of dodging the incoming missiles we turned around and headed back. On the way we must've broken the sound barrier that left us all crying by the time we reached the docks. We unstucked ourselves from the seats and chipped away the excess ice and climbed out of the boat. After watching Poseidon the sea did not seem that friendly. No time for tea or anything, just for Ste to wee, again! Back in Pisco 11ses and find out the sad score of 2:0 to Italy. Czech can start packing and head home. Later in the afternoon after hours on the net, back to the same restaurant for more fish. It was strange we were sitting there talking to some 'fresh travellers', giving them advice. It is not so long ago we were taking advice from others. Oh, we nearly forgot we have booked tickets for Christmas to go to Czech (22/12-27/12). Hurah.

21.6 Sli jsme se porozhlednout po necem jinem k snidani, ale bohuzel jsme nic nenasli a tak jsme meli to same. Ja si dala ovocny salat a Steve Americano (michana vajicka a rohlik). Vratili jsme se do hotelu a zbalili. Taxikar nam nauctoval 2 soles za 10-ti metrovou cestu na nadrazi. Autobús jel v 11 a davali fotbalovy zapas za jizdy. Cesta trvala neco prez hodinu a kdyz jsme prijeli cekal na nas dav cestovnich spolecnosti a hotelovych representantu. Byla to hruza. Ja dokonce i zajecela ve prostred ulici. My jsme se rozhodli s jednim jit a on nam nasliboval hory doly. Samo ze lhal jak mohl a tak jsme rychle naskocili do motokary a odjeli do hotelu ktery byl doporuceny LP. Obednali jsme turu na zitra a sli se divat na telku, protoze nic jineho se v Pisco delat neda. K veceri jsme si zasli do pekne restaurace na rybu.

22.6 Vstavali jsme v 6.15 a v 7 stali pred hotelem kde jsme cekali na autobús. Ten byl samozrejme 30min pozde. Uz nas to ani neprekvapuje. Okolo 8 jsme konecne byli vsichni na palube a vyrazili jsme do Paracas. Jizda trvala jen asi 20min. Tady jsme meli cas vyfotit si obrovske pelikany, ktere byly stejne velike jak kondori - 3m. Steve musel curat a tak prosvihl krmeni, ktere oni zorganizovali jen pro nas, za mirny poplatek. Pak uz byl cas nastoupit na lod, jenze... Stevecek opet potreboval na zachod. Ten musi mit mocak velikosti 5niku. Jen tak tak stihl lod. Kvuli nemu jsme meli nejhorsi sedacky v cele lodi. Uplne vzadu u 2 motoru. Ty sedacky byly nakonec ty nejlepsi, i kdyz nejsmradlavejsi. Za 10min jsme uz fotili Paracas (pred Inca civilizace) kresbu na strane kopce, neco jako Nazca cary. Za dalsich 10min jsme uz byli u Bollestas ostrovu. Tady jsou obrovske kolony peruvianskych pelikanu, kormoranu, bubis (ptaci s cervenym zobakem a nohama), Hamboldtskych tucnaku a jinych. Vsichni se nadherne predvadeli. Hlavne kormorani kteri se potapely tak silene rychle ze byly jak strely. Tucnaci byly taky roztomily. Bylo tu 1000ce Guanos (morskych ptaku) a jejich (ani se to neda jinak rict) kadidla letala v pravo i v levo. My jsme to nejak prezili bez zasahu. Asi hodinu jsme se jim vyhibali a pak jsme se otocili a jeli zpatky. Cestou zpet jsme museli prekrocit hranici hluku a kdyz jsme dojeli do pristavu tak jsme byli vsichni pekne ubreceni. Odlepili jsme se od zidli, odlamali kusy ledu a vylezli na breh. Celou dobu jsem musela myslet na ten film Poseidón, ktery jsme videli a more se mi vubec nelibilo. Zpatky v Paracas jsme ani nemeli cas na caj, jen Stevecek odbehl na zachod, opet!! V Pisco jsme si dali caj a dort a sli zjistit jak Cesi dopadli ve fotbale. Bidne. Muzou zacit balit a jet domu. Mozna priste. Pozdni odpoledne jsme ztravili na internetu, kde jsme obednali letenky domu (20.12 - 27.12). Vecer jsme sli na veceri do te same restaurace, kde jsme sedeli a rozdavali rozumy nove prichozim cestujicim. Je to legracni, protoze to neni tak dlouho co my jsme potrebovali poradit od ostatnich.
