Preserved 1500 year old Mummy at the Pre-Inca cemetary

Open tombs

Ordered breakfast for 7.30am this morning and didnt get it until 8.15am! Tut tut!

We then got a bus to an ancient cemetary! Lots of open tombs etc. Then went to a pottery place to learn about ancient Peruvians (Incas etc.) and pottery stuff.

We were then meant to be booked onto a light aircraft flight over the Nazca lines. We were booked for around 1.30pm but Sarah didnt fly until around 3pm and I went alone on a 4.05pm flight. Sarah found the experience a little stomach-churning but she was glad she did it. We are hoping to attach some photos in a few minutes so by the time you read this you will know if we have succeeded. It was a great experience! Very hot and sunny today after a very misty start. Our hotel is in the middle of nowhere but very nice. We are settling down for a few hours before a gruelling overnight (about 10 hours) bus journey to Arequipa, which is the start of our acclimatisation to a higher altitude - bring on the sickness!!. Apparently the bus is very comfortable with reclining seats, toilet etc. but we┬┤ll see.

Anyway, thanks again for your messages - I see Argyle drew 2-2 and a war has started. Nice.

Love to all, hope youre all well - speak soon !!

Love Craig and Sarah.
