Re: I just can't belive

I do sympathise. At least she was unhurt. I hope she did not advertise her packages by having them on the seat with her. The highway robbers do look out for this and call ahead with the cell, ready to ambush. You will notice the police will be very unsupportive. Yes, she did advertise. They broke t...

A few days ago I bought a TP-LINK 3G router (model TL-MR3220, 75USD in Compu Palace Miraflores) and now I am sharing my Claro 1mb 3G signal with 2 other laptops. The trick, when buying one of this 3G routers, is to check if that particular model is compatible with your 3G usb modem so it can activa...

Re: Arequipa - Just curious how many on here live in Arequipa

I'd echo the recommendation to wait until you get here to look for a place; especially as you have a place to stay for a few months and local connections to help you look. I recommend Ceica-peru for Spanish classes, I am currently taking classes there now and really like the quality of the teachers...
