Computer Repair in Lima?

Hi all, found an old post on this topic from 2011 - now that 4 years have passed it seems likely the limited info in that thread is probably out of date. Can anyone recommend a good service center or tech guy in Lima? I'd like to get my laptop cleaned out (mega dusty!) and a new SSD drive installed ...

Re: No rental without a letter from employer?

Sure, but within the context of the game it isn't immoral or scandalous in the slightest...it's just proper strategy. Also it isn't lying as we normally consider it all, but rather representing card holdings we could have, but possibly don't (which is always the case in poker). Suffice it to say tha...

Re: No rental without a letter from employer?

Thank you all for your advice. I probably should have mentioned that I am currently looking at somewhat pricey places in Miraflores... the necessity of a guarantee may be a somewhat unique feature to the area, because in Arequipa or Iquitos the subject never came up. So far every place I've talked t...

No rental without a letter from employer?

Hello all! I've been apartment hunting the past couple weeks but I keep hitting this wall - the renters want some kind of letter from my employer guaranteeing payment for duration of the lease, but I'm self employed, doing free lance work on the internet. Has anyone else had this problem? I thought ...

Re: Apartment Realtors/Agencies in Arequipa?

Yes, at CEICA. Very happy with experience there so far, a nice place to learn and they've been very helpful. They do know of apartments that become available from time to time, my girlfriend and I are being really picky about location though which is making it difficult for them to help us right awa...

Re: Apartment Realtors/Agencies in Arequipa?

Okay, so... Wow! Arequipa Peru does not use the internet for apartment rentals. This just seems so absurd to me :D So I've been doing exactly as was recommended, buying the sunday paper, and also taking note of advertisements posted on telephone polls, and then I've been having my Spanish teacher ca...

Re: Apartment Realtors/Agencies in Arequipa?

Thank you for all the great advice. I did as suggested and took a walk up Los Arces and snapped some photos of the for rent signs. However, as noted, they are all in Spanish and I have a feeling I won't have much luck calling the numbers myself. What I did today though is make into the Spanish schoo...

Apartment Realtors/Agencies in Arequipa?

Greetings everyone! I just arrived in Arequipa and am looking to rent an apartment here longterm. I've emailed a half dozen sites but have received zero replies... The adverts I responded to were written in English too so language shouldn't be the problem.. Is there a housing shortage going on or so...
