The trip to Machu Picchu begins with the ceremonial removal of your international travel approved scissors and the breaking-off of the oh-so-deadly nail file from your clippers. You then celebrate the loss of these deadly devices by being given a steel fork and knife which may well be able to hack apart a piece of meat, or the irritating person sitting next to you on the plane, but is wholly inadequate for cutting one small mustache hair or filing a finger nail.
Thank you George W. Bush for teaching appearance before substance to peoples all over the world who previously had been forced to live in a world of realities.
