Do Peruvians Lack Patriotism?

I've been told that Argentinians, Brazilians, and Chileans are very "nationalisticas" or patriotic. Out of those three most people say that Argentinians are the most patriotic, followed by Chileans, and then Brazilians. While patriotism is usually perceived as a good thing, it can also be bad. People have said that Argentians are vain, proud, and have a huge ego. You might even hear them say that God was Argentianian as was the Virgin Mary.

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.

It's been said that Peruvians worst enemies are themselves. When in Peru, Peruvians will often tell you not to trust Peruvians because they take advantage of people.

There has to be a balance between being too proud and not proud enough. I think that patriotism can be good, as long as it's kept in check. I believe that Peruvians need to be more patriotic. They also need to care more for their country and other people and not just for themselves. Lastly, they need to see the good in other people (and other Peruvians) and not just the bad.

Don't Get Robbed While Moving in Peru

A couple months ago I moved from one Asian city to another in the same country. It was winter and rather than stay downstairs with the moving van, I went upstairs with the baby. All my stuff was outside and unattended since the two movers were busy moving stuff.

Nothing got broken or stolen. Everything was accounted for.

When I told my Peruvian friend about this, she couldn't believe it. She told me that there was no way you could leave all your stuff parked out front while you move and still have it be there when you get back. She said it's dangerous going out and having your locked house be empty not to mention a truckload of unlocked goods.

I guess that's one reason I left Peru: safety. Inside of Peru it seemed like everyone was out to get you. Hopefully Peru will change. It's been said that Peruvians worst enemies are themselves.
