As an American (albeit one who was raised and has spent most of his life in a foreign country), this video makes me so happy… What happens when the residents of Peru, Nebraska (population 569), are visited by a bus of Peruvians?
I love watching as people are transported outside of themselves to something new – something different – something (for me) familiar and beautiful and comforting. I love watching as Peruvian idiosyncrasies, music, food, and laughter (and even the ice cream vendor selling lúcuma flavored ice cream) sweep away the residents of Peru, Nebraska.
I might have more thoughts on this later (cultures, “the other,” or random musings). But for now, I leave you to enjoy “El Perú visita a Peru.”
