Apart from Lima, Peru is one of the most amazing countries on earth!!! (I'm not exagerrating). I recommend you travel as much as possible, there's so much to see and do. The country has everything, Amazon rainforest, the Andes, incredible desert to stretches forever, and a beautiful coast in the far north! It has to be one of the best destinations in Latin America.

Overall
Personal comments:
It was really a waste of time. The four-course program, was and is useful to my academic and professional life. The exigence of the program is really low (for instance in microeconomics you only have to read a book and that's it. The teacher repeats this book word by word. In Econometrie the last exam we did it with ours books and notebooks. So evebody approved that exam).
