Flying 24,000 miles in two weeks is a bit much. But well worth it! First, I raced back to London for the opening of the latest, really spectacular show at the Fashion and Textile Museum. The exhibition was opened by none other than Sir Nicholas Serota, Tate Director and one of the most important and influential people in art.
Ironically, today's 'Mashco-Piro' are believed to be the descendants of indigenous people slaughtered and driven out of their homes by a rubber mogul named Carlos Fermin Fitzcarrald in the late 19th century. Guess who almost played Fitzcarrald in a 1980s film by Werner Herzog and even shot a few scenes in Peru? Mick Jagger.
