Would like comments and observations from Forons who have visited Peru in the last couple of years. Thanks.

I stayed in Cusco for a while then did a five day hike up to Machu Pichu. Gentle, kind people. Less U.S. influence than other Latin American countries. The only country where I often couldn't communicate because of a large indigenous (Quechua) population that sometimes didn't know Spanish. Beautiful native dress, crappy roads, decent food.
Have a more specific question, Stu?

Grouses about there being too many timely, (somewhat) relevant debate threads.

Bumps a 4-years-dead thread about a country in S. America with a link about a single crime in a country in S.E. Asia.

Several facepalms for you, Beav.

You are right, I should have brought up Seychelles instead.

Beav, do you buy the tabloids near the check outs when you shop at the supermarket?

No I just read the front covers. If you go to Peru, avoid the rainy season.
