Cooking classes in Peru?  (2 Answers)

Has anybody heard about cooking classes in Peru?
I would like to know if I could take a half a day cooking course.
Have you looked for something similar and have not found anything? Because I've been browsing the web and nothing so perhaps I could find one once I get there...
I wonder how much should I spend if find one in Lima... Any recommendations about how much I should spend? (cost including ingredients of coarse)

PLEASE ADVISE!!!

TXS!

Volunteering in Lima or other parts of Peru 09  (6 Answers)

I will be arriving in Lima at the beginning of January. I plan to be in South America for at least 3 months. If anyone has a suggestion of an organization to volunteer with in Peru (can be Lima or elsewhere) please let me know. If you have contacts at the organization, even better.

Lima for the night? When do things close?  (10 Answers)

Hello all!
Unfortunately due to flight times, we will be arriving Lima on a Fri. night 11pm and departing that morning at 7am to go to Iquitos. Yeah, we know. =)

I need your first hand knowledge on:
Would it even be worth it getting to downtown or Miraflores at midnight?
Is any restaurants, bars, clubs (discotechs not brothels) open until 3am in Lima or Miraflores?
Or don't bother with the taxi mob at the airport and just sit inside the airport for the 6 hours?
Thanks a bunch!

Q   a VirtualTourist member asked a question · July 10, 2005
Teaching in Lima  (5 Answers)

My husband is from Lima and we are moving there in a year. I have a BA in elementary education (in the USA this is a 4-year university degree). I have already interviewed at FDR in La Molina, but I am look for more options for places I could teach. Some of the British schools have been very rude to me, and many of them only hire "British, Irish, and Australian Nationals" i.e. not people from the US. I know the USA is not the most popular country in the world (and for good reasons), but this racism bothers me. So, understandable I am a little nervous to just send the headmasters e-mails asking if they have any openings, or even worse calling (I have done both)..I digress. Does anyone know of any other English speaking jobs I could look into, or how to find them. Many schools do not have postings on their web pages. Where are these jobs posted, or are they posted? Unfortunately I will not be able to do any volunteer teaching right away. My husband is opening a small business in Cieniguilla (sp?) so I will be the main wage earner at first, and we have a 2-year-old son. I hope volunteer work will be in my future, but for the time being paid jobs only please.
Thank you for your help,
AnneRe

Spanish Programs  (2 Answers)

Like I mentioned in an earlier post, I'm going to be studying at PUCP in March. I am planning on spending February in Lima to get comfortable with my surroundings.

I would need flexibility, as I am planning on traveling during that month and I don't know what kind of schedule I will be able to hold down. I would be looking for someone or a class where I could work 2-4 hours a day on grammar or about 10-20 hours per week. Thanks, Ty

Hostal for February

Hi, I'm going to school in Lima from March through July. However, I will arrive on Jan. 30 or 31 to take language classes for 4 weeks to make sure that I am up to speed. I will not have housing for this time. I was wondering if anyone could reccommend a hostal for this kind of arrangement. I won't know anyone at all because school doesn't start till March, so I thought that staying in a hostal could make February a good way to meet people. Also, what are the music and bar scenes like in Lima for young adults?
