Instead of going to the super touristy place of Machu Picchu, we choose to go to Huacachina.
Huacachina is a desert oasis and tiny village just west of the city of Ica in southwestern Peru. At its center are the green waters of the Huacachina Lagoon, ringed by palm trees and thought to have therapeutic properties.
I was amazed at finding this very special place. The oasis is real, you see such mirages in cartoons.
Did you know the small lake is natural? the trees around the lake draws water from the air and store it in the ground which created the lake.

This is the view when I was done with the hike, it was so beautiful and a good reminder that with God all things are possible!
