Don't Tape Your Box Shut at Peruvian Post Offices

From blog.timesunion.com
Just a quick tip, if you're going to Serpost (the Peruvian post office) do not tape or seal your packages before going to the counter. They'll have to check inside the package to make sure you're not sending anything illegal or drugs. Trust is still an issue in Peru. Even with x-rays and such they still require the post office workers to double check all packages.

Keep in mind that learning Spanish will greatly help you out when you're trying to figure out what they're saying at the post office. Knowing Spanish will help you assimilate to the culture and you'll be able to communicate easier.

Reader Request: Getting Married in Peru if You Don't Live There aka Destination Wedding

From http://www.pendoreilleco.org/county/marriage_licensing.asp
Peru is becoming a popular place to have a destination wedding. Many people are emailing me and asking me how they can get married in Peru when they don't live there.

If you want to get married in Peru and live there, then you're going to have to jump through more hoops. Read the following articles:

If you simply want to have a wedding in Peru and not live there, then it's pretty easy to do. Here's the thing, getting married in Peru requires getting documents notarised and translated and then register your Peruvian marriage back home. All of this adds time, money, and stress to an already stressful event. So here's what you should do.
  1. Get married back home. Have a simple, legal ceremony.
  2. Have the wedding in Peru. You won't have to worry about legalisations or translations or any of that stuff. If you want to get married in a church in Peru, you will probably have to show a copy of your marriage license, but that's just for the church. You won't have to deal with any Peruvian government offices. 

So there you go, a short and sweet way to have a destination wedding in Peru. Even if you're just going to do there for a destination wedding, learning a bit of Spanish will go a long way. If you're looking to learn Spanish, check out Synergy Spanish, Rosetta Stone, and Fluent in 3 Months.
