Re: Honest opinions sought on dating/,relationships

I think it depends on how much you are spending on her. If it is only a couple of cheap dinners then I guess it is ok. If she only wants to go to expensive places and also wants you to buy her gifts, clothes, etc. then she may be a gold digger/brichera.

Re: Is it almost always slightly cloudy in Trujillo ?

Cloudy weather is usually not that common in Trujillo, especially not during the summer. During this time of year it is usually hot and dry there. It rarely rains. You are probably just having bad luck with the weather (maybe due to El Niño like Sergio said). (I lived in Trujillo for 4 years).

This is obviously not the way to solve Peru's crime problem and some of the punishments are pretty brutal, but I can understand why the people do it.
