On our way back from Ayacucho, Ruthie and I involuntarily passed by Ica where we had a day to spend. Like most tourists coming there, we went to the Laguna de Huacachina ('hua' is pronounced as 'wa') which is beautiful but overcrowded. To escape the masses we decided to buy water and head out in the dessert, walking barefoot for hours along the soft ridges of the sand dunes before sitting down to watch the spectacle of the settling sun, only momentarily interrupted by the humming of an occasional sand buggy driving a load of tourists around in the valley floor far below us.
