I am very new here as well, my name is Gabriel Braun, and I am born in Cuzco 39 years ago. I have not been back to Peru in many years, but will be moving there with my wife and 2 young daughters in the next month or so. I am very excited to start my new life in Peru, I hear so many good things about the economy, and how Peru is better than ever now. I used to work as a real state agent in California, and I was wondering if anybody knows anything about being one in Lima. I was able to make pretty good money selling real estate and I am wondering if I can do the same In Lima. I love to surf as well and go to the gym, I also play percussion and love peruvian music. I am looking to move to Barranco or Miraflores and start working for a real estate company asap. If anyone knows anything about this please let me know. I am looking forward to meeting new people and making some good friends! I also can not wait to eat my heart out, other than the great people, man I sure do miss the food, mmm...
Any other surfers in this blog? how about musicians?
best regards to all!

Anyone out there feels the same.......
My name is Vic. Im Australian and currently have been living in London for the last 7 years. Moving to Peru to be with my girlfriend, Ill be in Peru over Easter for 10 days just to suss out the place and then will make the permanent move in June if all goes well.
Have been reading all the forums and getting lots of great information which has been really helpful. Just a little worried about finding work there in Finance. Dont really speak any spanish but my plan is to go to school for the 1st month or so.

My name is Daniela, I am Australian and arrived less than a week ago to Lima. I am here for work, but I wanted to make contact with some other people that might be keen to do some sight seeing or to go for a drink one afternoon on a Sunday. Sitting at restaurants with my work at night is ok for the first week, but I feel a little boring after a while!! I am living just near the El Polo commercial centre. I haven't really worked out how to get around yet but I'm sure I'll figure something out.
Is anyone doing anything tomorrow during the elections? Most things will be closed hey?

My name is Helen, and I will be living in Lima for 2 months to learn Spanish. I'm due to arrive this weekend, and I am a little nervous! Tomorrow I will fly out from Australia (as long as all the flights are running on time due to the Chilean volcanic ash clouds!).
I will be staying with the extended family of a very sweet Peruvian man I met a few months ago in Brazil. I have my fingers crossed that this will go as well as I would like it to. My family and friends are naturally worried for me as I will be 'alone' and far away. Joining an Expatriate web-group was suggested to me, and that's why I'm here
I'll be starting Spanish classes next week. I want to be able to speak conversational Spanish fluently by the end of the 2 months! so will be trying my best to immerse myself in the language and culture.
I will keep an eye out for any Expact social gatherings happening as it would be lovely to meet some of you (and speak English! haha).
