Peruvian Dream Part 2 - Paracas, Balestros Islands and Pisco

Wednesday 30th November

Part two of my birding fantasy >>>>>>

Let's dream again together ….............

Tambo Colorado Hostel, Pisco, Peru.

Back in 2014 I visited this hostel quite a few times. The best visit though was for my daughter, Rebecca's birthday . . . .

Flight over the Nasca lines with Happy Birthday sung by Japanese tourists.

A party back at the hostel afterwards.

So with Silvia Vilchez to organise our taxis and boats . . . . .

I have heard today from a great friend, Jason Oliver. He phoned to say that he was going to accompany me when I return to Peru next year! Jason was a student of mine many years ago and became a superb birder. He is an original member of The Birding Clams; a Facebook group where the original members are from the bird club we had at Coppice High School in Wolverhampton, UK. Jason hasn't been to Peru before. It is going to be a superb start to my three month stay there.
