    Dating sites

    Traveling to Peru for the first time for work for 1 month from next week. Lived in Colombia and Brazil before, so understand Latin America to a certain degree. Anyways, wanted to know what is the best site to join for dating, there are a few I have found, but wanted to know what is the best. Also, wanted to know if the women are fairly easy to go on dates with

    Cheers!

    As an American citizen, I have found IME, (due to all the new FATCA nonsense) it a non starter to open a checking account there.

    Anyone else from the USA here have that problem?

    Thanks,

You will receive a Mastercard Debit Card but you can also apply for a credit line. After 12 months of "good behavior" you will have the possibility to apply for a mortgage loan. Both banks provide online access including transactions.

    The August 2013 interest rates on a saving account were:

    2% on USD

    3% on Soles.

    The withholding tax for non-residents is 30.

    It is no problem to hold real estate in Peru as a foreigner. Renting income is taxed at 30% for non-residents and at 5% for residents. You have the possibility to grant the renting income to a resident.

The fee used to be $50. 00 US. You can easily look this up on the Peruvian government site. I looked into this several years ago, even consulting an abogado (lawyer). However, the only bank I really wanted to do business with (BCP) didn't want my money unless I had resident status. I wanted to deposit $50, 000 (yes dollars) and they weren't even interested.

    At that time both Ripleys and Falo banks would accept the deposit, but I am nervous about uninsured bank accounts. Both Ripleys and Falo are Chilean companies, Peru has NO (as in NONE) insurance for your deposits. So any money you put into a Peruvian bank has to be something you can afford to never see again! I can't emphasize this enough. Unless you can afford to lose it all I would suggest you get used to the pitiful return you get from US banks, or try a more developed country with bank deposit insurance.

    The bank officers I met with in all of these banks just smiled when I asked about deposit insurance. They simply said, if the bank runs into trouble, it will freeze its assets, or the government will freeze its assets. You can imagine that you might grow old and die waiting for anyone in the government or the banking system to give a tiny little turd for an extranjero's bank account in such a situation.

    yes, they are insured, with limits, but still it has been long since time to diversify out of the banking system. if you do not, you risk inflation, confirep001ion and bail-ins. my feeling is it is better to be in tangible assets; not necessarily to speculate, more as an attempt to store value. personally, i decided to give up some short term liquidity for long term storage of value. ymmv, but i do wish everyone the best of luck as we proceed down the rabbit hole!

    It always is a hard sell to get my Peruvian friends to put their money in a bank because of the generations of mistrust. It goes without saying that without any deposit insurance, people will usually just hide their money and that doesn't help the economy grow. Of course, if you get too much money in the bank maybe it will attract unwanted government attention!

    The most important consideration is whether or not you believe that Peru will continue to make the astonishing progress it has been making for almost ten years now. God I hope so!

The impression is not one of efficiency. Also, would the Peruvians swap information with the country of residence?

    Something like Kamagra in Peru and Bolivia

    Hey guys!

    Can you suggest please some inexpensive drug like Kamagra (Sildenafil Citrate). Can they be freely sold in Peru or Bolivia. What are brandnames? Or may be there are some local drugs with the same effect?

    Thanks!

    Credit Card Swipes

    I have never had a problem with my credit card in over 40 countries including my first trip to Peru. Now that I moved here for work both a mate of mine and I have had our cards swiped or scanned or whatever they do racking up thousands in clothes at these boutique chica shops in the states. Be warned this happened to both of us in San Isidro over the past month we think as that is where we use the card machines the most.

    Take care,

    Yep.

    Go to a non-sexual sauna. Like Banos Turkos Windsor in San Isidro or Palace in San Borja. I love the setup of Peruvian saunas, I miss the smell of Eucalyptus leaves in the steamroom, the dark rooms with soft deckchairs to sleep in (love the service of the staff tucking you in in towels for a short nap) and the feast of food available in the restaurant.

    The saunas are sort of mixed, there is a male and female section (well Windsor is). The only sexual one at that level would be SMIK in San Isidro. But expect to pay an arm and a leg for anything there.

    Ask the girls on a date, they might say yes LOL. I dated a couple of sauna girls that worked in non-sexual joints.

    Are there banos turcos or spas with nice facilities in Lima where you wouldn't necessarily have to take a girl or where you could get a more or less legitimate massage and then steam, use the pool ect? I have been to the dutch mixed saunas in Amsterdam and I love that atmosphere. Also possible I might want to take a girl from outside and use the facilities.

    Anybody have any suggestions?

    Thanks
