Luis picked us up at our hotel in the morning and took us to a small airport, from which the flights are organized. We waited for almost three hours for the flight itself, because the clouds in the area were quite low. Luis told us that it is quite common during the winter period. Several airlines operate at the airport and because all aircraft fly at the same height, it’s necessary to draw up a flight plan first. And if the weather happens to be bad when you arrive, you might have to wait for a couple of hours. Fortunately, we didn’t really mind waiting, because we had a whole day to visit Nazca. What supposedly often happens, however, is that tourists buy their bus tickets back for noon and actually miss the flight. So it’s necessary to consider possible delays. Luis and Nohelia helped us pass the time waiting for our flight; we discussed possible theories of why and how were the patterns created.
