Re: Daughter going to Peru, what should we prepare for?

Hmmm it seems I missed a good one ...QUinceanera parties are so overprotected I am sure the girl is safe. It is an elegant thing and nobody can go in without a special invitation that then is checked at the entrance.
Again, but this is not in Lima so I am a bit curious as to where it is so as to give an informed opinion

Lago Mar is a nice place for a teenager, it is a US style shopping center perched on a cliff and the view is mind blowing, the beggars can be a bit annoying but not more, Mira Flores, a bohemian part of town is just round the corner and a bit south along the coast is a Swiss restaurant. Of course the museums are worth visiting, the sea is great to swim although the baby head sized stones can be a bit uncomfortable, damn she will have herself some fun there.
That is some very good advice but I couldnt stop laughing at the typo...LOL it is Larco Mar ...hugs sorry for being a b...

I'm not a parent but I think Karls post "MAY" have been appropriate if he had taken a moment to explain rather than post a very simple and harsh sounding three words.
Yeah, 'cos you've never posted any quips/comments on EF without a full explanation each time...

of course I have, but not when openly questioning the sexual promiscuity of the 13 year old daughter of one of our most respected members.

There are limits, even for myself.

Re: Daughter going to Peru, what should we prepare for?

I am sorry.......but i cant hold it back any longer:

Click here to see Spiderman in Ollantaytambo, Peru.

It was such a great find not only for the Peru link, but also it does look like he is holding a bag of condoms...........

It was as if this photo was taken specifically for this thread.

cheers
SC

Another point that came up; which passport should she use to travel. She already has her UK passport, but is also entitled to a Swiss one. Although she insists she wants to go on her UK, we both think it would be far more practical to travel on a Swiss passport and, if necessary, register with the Swiss embassy. We just think that in the case, God forbid, of a medical repatriation or something it would be the most sensible option.
I dont really see the advantage of a Swiss passport in this case... as a resident of Switzerland, she would be repatriated to Switzerland anyway and Swiss insurance / REGA would bear the costs.

Of course it remains a personal decision but I think it would only make a difference in very extreme cases, like if she would end up in jail or something, and needs consular assistance....

I think you are right in this case that it's the country whose passport you entered with that trumps in these situations.


PS, I'm sorry if my comment on flirting with cute German back packers sent the thread down the wrong path. To be fair, we missed the connection before we met the back packers. The story just read better the other way. And really, we were 14 and there was no impropriety!

Plus I'll say that Latin American parents are VERY strict and family time rules above all. It's unlikely your daughter and her friends will be anywhere without family/adults there.

Re: Daughter going to Peru, what should we prepare for?

You should know in which district she'll be spending her time and if that district is one of the safer ones.

Re: Daughter going to Peru, what should we prepare for?

Definitely it would be easier to give an opinion if we know where in Peru your daughter will be. Things are very different in Lima and outside Lima, also the different cities in Lima vary a a lot one from another.

A Shot for Tuberculosis, MTB would be a good idea if she doesn't have one already. In Switzerland babies don't get that vaccine and it is recommended when traveling to Peru.

And tell her to be prepared for Diarrhea, even most of us Peruvians living abroad for a long time, have stomach problems when visiting Peru. tell her to stay away from tap water. http://howtoperu.com/2010/06/26/how-...water-in-peru/

Some of you mentioned Larco Mar, I think you can see it in some parts of this video with pics from Lima:
