I Decided to touch up my roots before I went out of town to speak. So I took my friend Martha to help as my translator. This was not the time to fly on my own. I went into the salon a blonde, Remember? Then somehow I took off the towel and I was as dark as the Peruvians. David, my hair stylist told me not to worry... this is how he gets to the shade of blonde that I want. WOW! They like to do things the long way. Six hours later... I am a blonde again but not without a few more grays from this experience.
