Smithsonian Folklife Festival - Featuring Perú

Wow! The Smithsonian Folklife Festival, which featured the people, culture, food, art, craft, and music of Perú, was an inspiring experience! If the five hours I spent sampling the wonders of this amazing country was a taste of Perú, I cannot wait to enjoy the full buffet when I visit the actual country. I think the diversity of the beautiful Peruvian people, both indigenous and of Spanish decent, really captures the essence of this extraordinary country.
