Thanks

Re: Just returned from Peru and have a couple of questions.

Is there a reason many local smaller businesses do not except the dollar? I was wondering if it had to do with the recent slide in the dollar value? Because the local currency is Soles? Put it in a different way. Why wouldn't you withdraw Soles from an ATM and pay in soles? My only experience in La...

Re: funny / embarrassing language learning mistakes.

I found that certain words in English can be misunderstood in Spanish. I was talking to a girl that I know in Chaclacayo about a week ago on the phone. She asked me what I had for lunch. I said "fish". I then asked her "Do you like salmon? and she got very quite on the phone. That nig...

This guy gave up his life in the states because of a few "forged" emails and pictures from a dating site?

Ran for Governor, and didn't have the sense to require some video time?

Re: Questions about relationship with Peruvian woman

It could very well be an issue at work. There was a political change at her job and the new boss is a dark skinned man. He moved all of the lighter skinned Peruvians out of his department. So who knows.
