Pisco, Peru
Home | Contents | Bay of Bengal Trip

5 October 2001

My first stop in Peru after Lima was in a town on the southern coast called Pisco. The Pisco region is known for it's white-grape brandy which is used to make the famous pisco sour. Just off of the coast is a group of islands named the Islas Ballestas. I took a boat trip there to see the wildlife, which included sea-lion colonies and many species of birds.
