Re: Does this make any sense?

G'day Woodchuck, I am with Scotiabank Peru for 3 months now. So I will tell you that they ALSO charge to receive international transfers. Their standard charge is $24.00 for any amount.

Re: Magdalena Del Mar

Welcome to our forum! Like most of Lima's traditional barrios, Magdalena is in transition. Old family homes built in the 30's 40's and 50's are being razed to make way for 7 to 10 story apartment buildings. It's subjective of course, but I think it's a nice area with areas that maintain a real neig...

Well ya gotta admit your title "Peru Exportation Rating Was The biggest in S. America and 3" in the World" is a bit misleading, if not wishful thinking.

As an Expat if you hold a current full driving license from your home country and are willing to get it certified you can avoid the practical exam. The written part is ...
