Re: Ladies - Where to get my legs waxed cheap??

Spa's and some peluquerias do it but you won't find a cheap one in Miraflores. In Magdalena del Mar are a lot of spa's and peluquerias and there prices are much lower than in Miraflores. Most of them are very decent and swanky. There prices are lower as they pay less rent and arbitrios in Magdalena ...

Well, it is a she, she is Brazilian and living there illegally, and moreover, she is sought by an arrest order from Spain and has penal register in Spain... just to explain the situation. So I doubt she can win anything in a peruvian court - but maybe I'm wrong...? Be carefull. It sounds like she's...

Re: Trying to find Big Bombs, Fly paper, Water/Gas Cans

Re: Issues with Neighbors

I've got a loud drunk neighbor problem that's getting progressively worse. He blasts music all day and all night Saturday and Sunday and screams "Weekends are for me! Weekends are for me!" whenever I ask him to turn it down. He lives directly upstairs with three brothers, all in their lat...

Re: Encashment in Lima?

Unless he has "bank accounts" or a legal job where you can garnish their wages, you probably have no recourse here. The person who owes him money isn't peruvian so probably on a tourist visa. So, he won't have a bank account here and if he works, he will be working illegally. It's a tough...

On this website, you find information about groundtransportation from and to most major airport with prices you should pay for transport. It also gives you information about the current weather at your destination and information about exchange rates. It's not a website 'against' taxis. If you still...

Re: Which stove oven should I buy?

I bought an INDURAMA (model Barcelona) 2 years ago.

Works fine, easy to clean. Never had any problems.
Bosch is expensive but no neccesarily better. Often you pay for the name.

I advise against buying the cheapest ones. In Tottus they sell stoves from only 270 soles. But they won't last long.
