Funding for Peruvian students studying abroad?

Hey all, This is a bit of strange one but I'm thinking that someone here might be able to help, although it's a long shot. My girlfriend - a Peruvian national - recently applied for a Chevening scholarship online, only to go through the process and find that the deadline has already passed. This is ...

Re: Popular tourist restaurants in Lima?

Punto Azul offers great food at reasonable prices in Miraflores but you must arrive early to avoid substantial queues. However, I have to take this opportunity to recommend an incredible cevicheria that many of you may be unaware of. It's name is El Mirador de Chabuca and the address is Jr. Santa 13...

Yellow fever vaccination

Hi, I'm thinking of travelling to Iquitos next week but my gf thinks that I need a yellow fever vaccination or else they won't let me fly there. She may well be right but I've seen nothing on the internet that confirms that, with most sources saying that it's just recommended. I don't really have th...

Travel options in Peru

Hi, I'm thinking of travelling around Peru's interior a bit but was hoping I could call upon your collective wisdom to figure out the best options to do so economically. My preference is to take flights and from what I can see Star Peru seems to be the cheapest of the airlines? (LAN and TACA's fligh...

Paid NGO work?

Hi all, Sorry if this has been asked before but I'm pretty desperate for work here and really want to do something in my field, which is sustainable procurement. I could potentially do something with purchasing alone or a role related to sustainable development itself. Either of these options is mor...

Exporting Peruvian pets to the UK

Hi all, I have a kitten in Peru, which I found abandoned in a tree, crying, some 6 weeks ago now. At the moment, I can't see myself staying in Peru long-term due to the lack of decent employment opportunities but I don't want to give the cat away, as I've grown very attached to her. Unfortunately, t...

NGO / sustainable development work in Lima?

Dear all, Sorry for posting this in the general discussion forum but I noticed that the jobs section is pretty undersubscribed. I´ve recently moved to Lima to be with my girlfriend who lives here. I´m looking for some paid employment but teaching English doesn´t appeal to me and is not relevant to m...

How to find apartments in Lima??

Hi all, I'm new to Peru but hope to be here (Lima) for at least 6 months. At the moment I'm looking for a one bedroom flat to reside in during my stay but I've been a bit frustrated by the severe lack of websites advertising rental opportunities and that includes the classifieds section of this reso...
