Arriving for a six-week stay as adviser to the Ladies' Health Care Clinic in Lima, Peru, Englishman John Lane is unprepared for La Señora Pandora and her husband Dr. Hermogenes, who explain, "Our clinic is mainly for the expecting woman." In this comic 2003 travelogue, Lane recounts how he was seduced by the rhythms of Peruvian life, attending bullfights with Dr. Hermogenes, accompanying La Senora to the weddings and funerals of her large extended family, and trailing her on epic shopping expeditions, while in the background the chaotic presidential elections rumble on.
