Re: Peruvians denied entry to US for arrest?

The best way to find out for sure is to buy a ticket and try to go to the US, and then come back and tell what happened.

I believe Russia would provide her with an apartment and 2000 a month, if she were to stay in Russia. Don't think she would own the apartment. The last I heard, was she didn't accept the offer and wanted to come to Peru.

Keep in mind 1 oz (28 grams) of gold right now is about $1100. That is for 24 karot, pure gold. Here in Peru normally the sales are for 18 karot.

You can have an idea when they weigh the gold on a scale, how much a ring is worth. (not including any hand work)
