Jim O'Donnell Photographs The Nazca Lines

© Jim O'Donnell
Jim O'Donnell from Around the World in Eighty Years tells an amusing and delightful tail of his flight over the Nazca lines. It does, however, involve a cocktail called Pisco Sours and a young, drunken archaeologist, so please keep an open mind. Let's face it, sometimes it takes a little liquid courage to face some of our fears. Jim may have had a tad too much considering his foggy memory, however his story telling keep me captivated and cracking up til the very end.

The Nazca lines as most of you know, are giant geoglyphs spread across the arid Nazca plateau between Nazca and Palpa. The lines themselves were created sometime between 400 and 650AD and are comprised of everything from straight lines to geometric shapes to stylized depictions of spiders, monkeys, orcas, lizards and, of course, the famous hummingbirds. The largest of the figures are nearly 700 feet across. Some of the lines stretch for tens of miles. ~Jim O'Donnell
