Overall
I wish I had known...
Had exhausting it is to live in Lima. Its a pretty dangerous city, You can't afford to fully relax when you go out, have to be aware all the time of your surroundings. The city is very chaotic and noisy. The most depressing thing is the weather! There's a permanent grey sky and you never see the sun! Except during the 3 months of summer (December, January, February).

If you plan to study in Lima, I STRONGLY recommend you go to La Catolica. All the staff (especially the internationaL dept), tutors and students are very friendly and helpful!

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.

I wish I had documented myself a little more before going, because Peru as such an interesting and intense history and culture... But two years of intense livng ther where ok to get aware of everything, with a little effort and dedication.

As I Said before, the teachers and students are of high quality. Interacting with them, living their reality, being one of them (including going for dinner at the house of you class mates and meet their family) is the best way to enjoy that University.

Peru is an amazing country, but its people is even more captivating. Make firends, if their family comes from "provincia" (out of Lima) ask them if you can spend a WE there with them, travel with friends, share their life, go to the places they go, act like a normal peruvian student, talk to people, make jokes with them (peruvians are very friendly), eat their food, ask them to explain you what you don't understand about the country, the history, the political situation, go to parties with them (peruvians love to dance), accept if they invite you to any celebration, and of course go to Macchu Picchu (WITH A PERUVIAN GUIDE) but DON'T MISS THE JUNGLE (start in Iquitos) because it's one of the most beautiful and nice place in the world. Not only Brazil has the Amazone, don't forget that this mythical river starts in Peru. But definitly, the principal wealth of Peru is its people. Live with them, not next to them.
