The thing you do in Huacachina: sand boarding. The idea is you get shuttled to the top of a dune via dune buggy and then slide down on a board, either on your belly or standing like you’re surfing. Either way, you eat a lot of dust! I must admit that I don’t like eating dust as much as I like cappuccinos, so I went for the caffeine while some friends sand boarded. They were finding sand in unexpected places for awhile after! #huacachina#ica#peru#perú#dunebuggy#onthewaytosandboard#travel#travelgram#instatravel#whereisbrian
The Paracas Candelabra
According to Wikipedia: The Paracas Candelabra, also called the Candelabra of the Andes, is a well-known prehistoric geoglyph found on the northern face of the Paracas Peninsula at Pisco Bay in Peru. Pottery found nearby has been radio carbon dated to 200 BCE, the time of the Paracas culture. The design is cut two feet into the soil, with stones possibly from a later date placed around it. The figure is 595 feet tall, large enough to be seen 12 miles at sea. #paracas#paracascandelabra .
From the courtyard of the Hacienda San José in Chincha, Perú. .
According to Wikipedia: "During a period, this Manor House had one of the richest plantations in Chincha, with around 1000 slaves working on its fields. ...
The first news about San José Manor House dates back to 1688 when Rosa Josepha de Muñatones y Aguado married Don Andrés Salazar. As a dowry, she brought into the marriage the Manor House and its church along with a farmland located on the Chincha Valley."
Statue in downtown Lima commemorating Ramón Castilla. Sort of a combination of the USA's George Washington and Abraham Lincoln.
According to Wikipedia: Ramón Castilla y Marquesado (Spanish pronunciation: 31 August 1797 – 30 May 1867) was a Peruvian caudillo who served as President of Peru three times as well as the Interim President of Peru (Revolution Self-proclaimed President) in 1863. His earliest prominent appearance in Peruvian history began with his participation in a commanding role of the army of the Libertadores that helped Peru become an independent nation. Later, he led the country when the economy boomed due to the exploitation of guano deposits. Castilla's governments are remembered for having abolished slavery and modernized the state. #lima#peru#ramoncastilla#travel#travelgram#instatravel#whereisbrian#statue
