Travel with our "Best of" crew to PERU's most beautiful tourist areas.
Peru is one of the most mysterious places in the world. Our crew traveled there to trace the origin of funeary pottery. This form of pottery was used exclusively for holding food, water and grain for the dead on their travel to the after-world. Potters in Peru have been using the same technique for more than 3000 years. We heard about one man who still used the old ways. We found him in an adobe house in the small desert plain town of Nazca, 800 miles south of Lima.
Our goal was Nazca, which lies on the Pacific Coast about 3 days south of Lima. Travel was by minivan down the Pan American Highway. The stops along the way are recorded and presented as the "BEST OF PERU". The video we went to make, "THE POTTER OF NAZCA", completes this 30 minute video.
Some of the highlights on the video are the temple at Pachacamac, the Paracas Peninsula, the Lines of Nazca, the Cities of Lima, Cuzco, Machu Picchu, Arequipa, Lake Titicaca, Ica, and Iquitos.
