         the nazca like lines and figures extend well south of peru into chile.  the atacama has several ancient sites and lost cities.  the museum at san pedro de atacama [childress] has many artifacts of ceramics showing that tiwanakan culture included far south. 
         the molle indians wore ceramic plug beards as a sign of rule and authority, just as in egypt when the red race ruled there. 
         its curious that most natives of the americas share the copper red skin, and the absence of much facial hair, like the atlanteans, but over time lost the dolichocephalic skull shape.   apparently the loss of the elongated skull was not so long ago, since the look was perpetuated by cradle boards, and by the flathead tribes of south and north america. 
         mummies found at arica were carbon dated by dr m. allison to be 8,000 years old.  experts had dated the culture to just before the conquest until that time, an error of 7,000 years!   the embalmers knew anatomy better than egypt.  some dead were covered by cement and made into a statue.  [i wonder if those seen by early spanish at tiwanaku were corpses covered with cement?  they were said to be life-like.]

           its desert along the coast from ica peru south.  what the maps call the atacama, appears to be in chile.  antofagasta chile might be a good base hub for you david.  its easier to find good accomodations and transport connections in the larger cities.  however, if you can talk and bargain, the better deals are in the small towns near the sites.  hotels and hostels might give you leads. 
           leave pictures of your driver, and his vehicle with plate, at your hotel desk, with your itinerary, and expected return time.  this may keep him honest, and you wont end up looking like the guy pictured below. 
           try getting a rate for a full day, or the entire trek duration.  often this saves money.  at xian china, i was able to hire a taxi for $20/day, morning until night.
