334 Peach Mango Peru

about 14 days ago

Grab some fruit and let me take you to Peru.

Have you eaten a peach lately?

Try eating slices of one while alternating bites with slices of mango.
If you can do it while sitting in your underwear in the sun like I did then you are a true champion of summer in my book. In this episode I talk about Willie Nelson's new record 'First Rose Of Spring', George Carlin, The Wrong Missy, Eurovison Song Contest, Mean Girls, Booksmart, John Muir and his use of the word "Sambo", The Portland Riots and the leaf blowers sending back the CS gas to the unmarked federal agents. I also talk about my book that I'm writing and read to you one of the best parts of my Peru chapter. What could be better than that? Hearing all about my best moment while filming for a Travel TV show in Peru on assignment. Let your brain relax and allow my words to take you to Amantani island on Lake Titicaca. I got to experience the sacred ceremony of Pacha Mama (Mother Earth) with the local villagers and I wrote all about it for my book and now your ears. Grab some fruit and let's share this happy summer moment together. If you can listen to this episode with fresh summer fruits while sitting in your underwear in the sun all the better. Enjoy every sunset. Hooray for humanity!
