Even My Backup Plans Have Backup Plans

On Thursday Bob was sick and had to run errands rather than have field school class as usual so I went with him. As for the students there was supposed to be a tour of downtown Lima. While riding a cab with Bob, zipping around Pueblo Libre, we got a phone call: the tour guide no-showed and the students have been waiting around for almost an hour. Quite studiously, they awaited further instructions instead of running off. I immediately gave them my backup plan: go themselves to the Museo de la Nación, and we’ll reimburse them for tickets and food. It’s good to have a backup plan in Peru. And a backup backup plan.
