In general I'd suggest you register it in the USA if you can. Sometimes media is restricted (not sure about Kindle) for outside USA such as for music and many websites. Please note that if your kindle supports "whispernet" without WIFI (via cell network), you will be charged $2 more for each purchase you make on the kindle.

Mine is registered to the US. I have international 3g whispernet and use it all the time to download books and mags and have never been charged for downloads. I think they phased that out extra charges quietly or just don't apply it in Peru at least. If you register it to Peru you will have some content limited.

Martha, I definitely stand corrected by you. Sorry about any confusion. I used to be charged extra as I've mentioned in other posts but today I emailed Amazon and got this response which confirms what you've been saying:

Your wireless Whispernet connection is free and included with your Kindle purchase. There's no wireless set-up, no confusing service plans, no contracts or commitments, and no monthly wireless bills.

Fees apply if you receive regularly scheduled issues of your newspaper, magazine, and blog subscriptions wirelessly if you're a U.S. customer traveling outside the United States.

There is no fee for receiving books or single issues of periodicals wirelessly. Browsing the Kindle Store and using Kindle's web browser are also free.

Shopping and downloading from the Kindle Store is free. So is accessing your Archived Items on Amazon.com and Kindle's Basic Web that allows you to browse and search on the Internet.

Some extra services, such as conversion and wireless delivery of personal documents, carry a charge of $0.15 per megabyte of content you submit for conversion.

Kindle is the stick they use in the cape before the sword in bullfights. Once using it, it is called Kendling and this is when it is ok to burn.
