Elections in Peru

Elections in Peru – being there just prior to election day I ran across thris large potato.  Later a bread (pan) and chicken (pollo) coca leaves, and other symbols candidates use to attract voters.  Since much of the population is illiterate, candidates gift them with bags of rice and remind them to vote for the potatoe, or pan or whatever their symbol is.  Interesting way to win an election.
