Our guide explained what all the different ingredients were and told us about the culture of markets in Lima and Peru. We also tried some of the food which was delicious!! limatellena.weebly.com/tours–rates.html

And if you want to learn a little bit about chicha art in Lima, I can’t recommend their tour enough, which we did after the food tour. Chicha is those neon colored letters and signs you see everywhere in Peru, especially in the more rural areas. They taught us about the technique, then we all painted a letter. A class and goodies to take home? Yes please!

Comment on The Final Word on Bricheras by adriana http://www.expat-chronicles.com/2009/04/the-final-word-on-bricheras/comment-page-1/#comment-453376 Thu, 27 Nov 2014 05:26:05 +0000 http://www.expat-chronicles.com/?p=1227#comment-453376 Well, i’ve practically read all the comments yall posted and i agree with some as i differ from others. Look, I’m peruvian/american myself and I KNOW how bricher@s work, they want you visa not your penis/ass.
Regular foreigners come to Peru to look for an exotic experience, mostly for “Macchu Picchu” bc thats all they know but what saddens me the most is that they think they’re gonna be so wanted just for being foreign.. uhm.. only if you want poor girls then yeah, of course theyre gonna throw their pussy out there! oh yeah and also, theyre gonna cling onto how much money you have to spend. But as for higher level class of peruvians, thats not so easy. For example, I attend a “rich” college where students mostly brag about what they have in their possessions that comes from a foreign country, the foreign places they’ve been, how much money they have everyday, etc. just. like. any. other. country. i can not believe you guys still think that peruvians are ignorant as fuck bc theyre not and they do actually take pride on their “Mamani” last name. There are “Choquehuancas” and “Smiths” that are high class level, ITS A DEVELOPING COUNTRY!. As for sluts, they exist everywhere. Seriously, Peru is just like any other country, just that peruvians do have conflicts with their own heritage since everyone’s mixed AND i could say they lack in manners too, gosh older males are SO disrespectful to women in general like you can’t practically wear a skirt or else you’ll be labeled as a slut, its annoying as hell. SOOO unlike the States, believe it or not, they have 100000% more respect for women. And older women have the right to yell at you or order you, especially if its in a public place, just bc theyre women. Older women are fucking savage. But the good thing about Peru is that everyone is accepted the way they are, SO. UNLIKE. FOREIGN. COUNTRIES. they are very soft people (sensitive) and will always think about you and the mutual friendship between each other like they cherish friendship a lot and everyone will trust you if you’re nice, of course unlike other countries i’ve been. Honestly, its all about perspectives. I’m half foreign myself so I can tell the differences between both cultures since I’ve grown up on both and i soooo prefer my peruvian side than my american one bc honestly, the culture itself its cruel and more focused on mitlitary pride and the druggy experience instead of intellectual. I wish people in my country would know how the foreign “white” culture (as they think) it really is.

Do you have any recommendations for aspiring writers?
I’m hoping to start my own site soon but I’m a little lost on everything.

Would you recommend starting with a free platform like WordPress or go
for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I’m totally overwhelmed ..
Any tips? Thank you!

Comment on All Colombian Women Cheat by Nai http://www.expat-chronicles.com/2011/05/all-colombian-women-cheat/comment-page-4/#comment-431960 Tue, 18 Nov 2014 19:45:40 +0000 http://www.expat-chronicles.com/?p=5127#comment-431960 I’m colombian woman married to an Indian guy. We’ve been married for 10 years and I never cheated on my husband. I don’t come from the top 1% colombian society. I come from a very poor but hard working family. We are good financially because we both have sucessful careers. We had to deal with stereotypes. I remember my friends calling me crazy for marrying an indian and his friends telling him I was a gold digger.
