fought for their preservation throughout her life. The Nazca lines, a 50 square km area in the Nazca Desert in southern Peru, are a mysterious group of geoglyphs, forming geometric designs and the shapes of birds and animals when viewed from the sky. Reiche first moved to Peru in the 1930s to work as a governess after studying mathematics and languages at university in her native city of Dresden. She became fascinated by the lines after a trip to the Nazca Desert in the early 1940s and made it her life’s mission to research their meaning and protect them. This passion brought with it trouble and danger but also give her a sense of peace. Gallienne will play her co-archaeologist Paul Kosok in the Damien Dorsaz helmed movie.

  3. I've heard stories about those pieces of artwork visible from the sky. Word is aliens are putting them there to send us messages. All jokes aside, the Lady Nazca movie sounds really good!

    1. Yes, and they hide their spaceships under the pyramids which is why pyramidal mountains (for example Rtanj in my country) have very specific energy lines which make everything that grows there magical and super healing.

  5. I used to read a lot of historical romances back in the day, but got away from it. But lately, I've been watching several period pieces and falling in love with the costumes and how things were back in the past. Thanks for the heads up. Hope you are well! Hugs, RO

  6. Every time I see Dresden, I laugh because Mariah's old boyfriend Luke's immigrated here from Germany and the street she lives on is called Dresden. Guess it was fate for her.

    Anyhow, they all sound worthy of a watch today.
