Say "Whisky" When Posing for Photos in Peru

English speakers say "cheese", Chinese speakers say "eggplant", and Korean speakers say "kimchi". All of those are foods. Not so in Latin America. According to Omniglot, Latin Americans (and Talossans, but the UN doesn't recognise that country so I'm not going to count it) are the only ones to use alcohol when posing for photos. Ironically they say "whisky" instead of "pisco sour".

One tip to remember is that speaking Spanish will help you greatly. You'll be treated differently than if you speak English all the time, it'll help you assimilate to the culture, and you'll be able to communicate easier.
