A working holiday for Toledo

Peru's Toledo Turns Tour Guide for U.S. TV Show: "The one-hour show, to be aired from this fall to an estimated audience of 320 million worldwide, will take in tourist icons like the Inca citadel of Machu Picchu and the mysterious Nasca lines, plus lesser known marvels like one of the world's deepest canyons, the Canon de Colca, the buzzing jungle city of Iquitos and the picturesque city of Trujillo." Reuters Although you can't spite Toledo for taking advantage of this opportunity to display Peru's tourist attractions, it's typical of the kind of grandstanding that has plagued the Toledo administration over its short lifetime. The Discovery Channel will probably give great play to this show. But why should Toledo cast himself as a tour guide? I am sure that Fernando Belaunde would never have disminished his stature as a head of state to talk about the Marginal Highway for an hour.
