My Peruvian taxi driver says the most popular soft drink in the nation is Inca Kola.
"What's it taste like?" I ask.
He smiles mysteriously, "Unforgettable."
Suddenly, despite historic churches and monuments, all I want is to taste Inca Kola.
I get my wish.
Inca Kola is yellow. Not pale yellow like lemonade. Piercing yellow like neon on a rainy night.
One sip and I'm immediately a child again, standing at our local grocery candy counter. Dusty sweetness. Excitement. Little kid giddiness. What time travel magic!
Another swallow and I understand. I get it.
Inca Kola tastes like bubble gum.
