We arrived in Pisco in search of some wildlife and arranged a tour of the National Reserve of Paracas which included a morning sailing around the Islas Ballestas and a tour of the Peninsula de Paracas. We managed to see Sea Lions, Penguins, Pelicans and loads of birds (..including some Boobies!) on our island tour and were then taken by bus round the peninsula. Our guide Harold talked at length about the geological formations of the desert area and coastline. Marie and Sharna were in their element as they claimed to have spent 3years studying geography in London. We had lunch at a tiny fishing village in the middle of the desert and had freshly caught Sea Bass and Calamari.
