Fujimori

Here is another painting of a small village in Peru's Sacred Village, you will notice on the building it says "Fujimori ...Si cumplio" Fujimori was president of Peru in the 90's and is credited with defeating the shining path movement and thus making Peru a much safer place to live and visit. However he is also a controversial figure due to his violation of human rights and stealing money from the Peruvian Government despite this he still receives quite a bit of support in Peru. I thought this political history made this otherwise mundane scene interesting. There are also a couple Alpacas in the scene that did not come out as good as I hoped.
