  • Why are you moving to Peru??? I did a report on Peru when I was in elementary school, but I have no clue what it would be like to live there.

  • I'm interested in that myself. My 19 yr old son is leaving for Lima Peru this coming Monday. He's going as part of a missions team.

  • Give it a chance. I mean not everyone gets the chance to have an education in a foreign country, and to speak the actual native tongue. If they are offering all that then they really might appreciate you being there.

  • I've never been there, but with a husband who travels internationally this is my advice. Like ANY country, Peru will probably have it's safe areas and not safe areas. I'm a little concerned that you are moving there sight unseen. I would at least go there on a trip to SEE the house, SEE the area, the schools, etc. It sounds a LITTLE too good to be true. Ceviche is fish that is marinated in citrus juices and spices, and the citrus "cooks" the fish. Sounds gross, but our local peruvian restaurant has it and it's excellent! I would do some research- go to a library or a bookstore and read up a little (you can't always trust the internet). Try to see if there's anyone in your area from Peru and talk to them. Get to know what the local customs are, so you don't offend anyone, and PLEASE start learning Spanish. Internationally, Americans are looked down upon if you don't make an attempt to speak the local language.
