Postcard: the politics. . .

In general, I like to fly under the radar of politics. My stance has definitely changed since the outcome of the US presidential election of 2016. I’m more aware, if not as engaged as I’d like to be. So imagine my surprise at the news out of Peru yesterday. President Kuczynski has resigned after just 2 years in office. Sketchy deals, vote-buying, a politically motivated pardon, and an impeachment hearing around the corner. Hmmm. Guess we’re heading out of the frying pan into the fire. I’m turning off my news app as soon as we get to Urubamba. Maybe, if I’m lucky, when I plug back into the world I’ll find out our own president has followed suit. Dare to dream.
