We got a taxi to the observation tower at Nazca Lines. Entry was 2 soles. After climbing the rather perilous and vertigo-inducing makeshift structure, we were left feeling disappointed. The lines are largely unimpressive and fail to leave you with a great sense of history like other more impressive inca remains - Machu Picchu in mind. You'll have to take the historians' word for it that these are truly 1500 year old geoglyphs. The actual real joy of the trip was experiencing the sheer reclusiveness of the Pan-American highway in the Nazca desert, and the bus journey through dramatic scenery between the two towns of Ica and Nazca - a landscape well worth seeing.
