Personal spending habits
Food, nightlife and travelling are less expensive i Peru than in Belgium, so I spent proportionnaly less money in Peru for these matters, even if I travelled and went out a night maybe more that in Belgium. In another hand, it was the first time I lives on my own, so obviously I spent more money in accomodation in Peru than in Brussels (even if my appartment wasn't that expensive), and maybe also in food, even if food in Peru is really really cheap. Telephone was a big expense for me, but it was my choice, to keep in touch with my famialy ans most of all with my boyfriend. But it wasn't a disaster neither because I soon found a Internet telephone system (Net2Phone).

Food ans tipical dishes are so delicious in Peru, that I recommend to eat the "Menus" that people cook and serve in small restaurants, anywhere in the city (even in the some posh neighbourhoods such as Miraflores where I lived) for small prices (2 dollars is a maximum price). Eating those menus, you can eat current peruvian cook, and more global dishes arranged i the peruvian way. It's not worth it to got to a fancy tipical folkloric restaurant to eat the delicious ceviche, ají de gallina, cau-cau, chupito de camarón or arroz chaufa. The chinees restaurants, CHIFAS, also offer abundant and cheap menus of delicious asiatic-peruvian gastronomy, simbol of fusio between those two cultures.

Don't take travellers cheques, the banks charge a high rate to exchange them. Stick to the atm machines - using your check-in account card NOT your credit cards which are also quite expensive
