Nazca and the Nazca Lines

sunny 30 °C
View South America on ravroops's travel map.

Around 300AD, the Nazcan's decided to etch several huge images into the desert, creating the famous Nazca lines. We boarded a small Cessna plane (large enough for the pilot, co-pilot and four passengers) for a 30-minute flight over the lines. My stomach took a beating as the plane lurched from side to side as we obtained a birds-eye view of the ancient drawings. No-one is quite sure why they were drawn...we concluded that they were alien drawings. I mean, why else would they have drawn a spaceman waving out into space??!!

The ancient Nazcans mummified their dead, twisting the bodies into the foetal position
