Re: Paying US credit card/ student loans from Peru account?

Hi, I was faced with a similar issue and this is my work around. I have two Peru bank accounts and I left one card with a family member in the States (I couldn't get an extra card issued for the same account because my wife doesn't have a Carnet and that is apparently an issue, so I opened a new acc...

Looking for a climbing partner (Lima)

Greetings All, I'm looking for a climbing partner to meet up with one or two times a week at the indoor wall in Pirqua. While I started climbing four or five years ago, I still consider myself a relative novice. When I last climbed indoor stateside, I was fairly successful on 5.9 (US rating) routes,...

Thanks, SAE, Yes, I've rented equipment in Huaraz in the past - definitely a cheap and reliable option (I've never gotten poor or questionable equipment from any of the rental places!), but I find myself going up there more and more and would prefer to have my own stuff.

Trout stocked lakes near Huaraz

Does anyone know of any lakes in the Huascaran Nacional Park where it'd be worth fishing? I get the impression that there are quite a few lakes up that way that have had trout introduced to them, but I don't want to spend my trips from Lima fishing empty lakes :). Any tips or pointers would be great...

Greetings, I am in the market for a decent tent and a fishing pole. Some background: I want some equipment to do some trout fishing up in the Huascaran area.
