Yes, Peru. Why? Why not.
I hadn’t planned to check in so soon, but I just had to share a moment from Lima. We were outside the Presidential Palace just as the Changing of the Guard was getting underway.
A formally uniformed brass band was behind an imposing fence. Armed guards were everywhere. And the band started playing.
She: “Isn’t that…”
Me: “The theme to Hawaii Five-O.”
We stood there, amused and dumbfounded. No less so when the band segued into “Let’s Dance,” the 1962 hit by Chris Montez.
I’d run down the entire playlist, but I didn’t take notes.
I think we’re gonna like this place.
