At Expat Focus, we like to be on the lookout for resources around the web that could help prospective expats adjust to their new countries. Today, we’re taking a look at Peru and some of the blogs that might be useful for expats there.

Academic Troll
http://academictroll.weebly.com/

Anna is a Finnish scientist who discovered that a life in Lima, Peru suited her love of anthropological curiosity down to the ground. Her blog Academic Troll is an exploration of contemporary Peruvian culture and urban life in Lima viewed through the eyes of a curious expat.

My Slice Of Peru
http://chiclayogringo.blogspot.co.uk/

Moving in 2008 from Tom's native America to his wife's home nation of Peru, this Chiclayo Gringo has seen out enough years to call himself an experienced expat. When not exploring their beautiful home, they run a charity set up especially to provide local aid focused on furthering education in the poorer areas of the Lambayeque Region.

Wawas In Peru
http://www.wawasinperu.com/

Amy moved to Peru more than 5 years ago, and now shares her adventures and experiences as a Mom in a foreign culture. Topics range from cross-cultural relationships, bilingualism, life as a working mom, a touch of arts and crafts, Peruvian society as well as “How to in Peru” posts. Written in a friendly tone, Wawas in Peru is an excellent resource for for families looking to make a move and features a section on what to do with kids in Lima.

American Chicha
http://www.americanchicha.com/

Chicha translated roughly, is a vibrantly disarrayed cultural foray into the deepest, most delicious verges of Peruvian life and Jason is exploring as many aspects as possible. Sampling everything from worms to attempting the discovery of the best French Fry Potato, this American culinary student is sharing his adventures via the medium of a knife, fork and whisk.

Life in Peru
https://lifeinperu.com/

It was love, two Lynyrd Skynyrd concert tickets and touch of language confusion that resulted in Belgian-born Ward moving home and hearth from his adopted American life, to the welcoming smile of his Peruvian wife. Eventually settling in Patricia's hometown of Cusco, they are living everyday life in the heart of an incredible culture that provides a fair share of amusement and confusion.

How To Peru
http://howtoperu.com/

How To Peru isn't just a Peruvian travel guide for backpackers and other independent travelers, but a treasure trove of often updated practical advice. Want to know 50 things to do in Lima, how to ship a car over or need an insight into the day-to-day machinations of language? This is where to go.

La Colorada
https://lifeinperublog.wordpress.com/

This Kentucky/Peru couple started off a little unusually - think Anna espying Ivo sprawled on the stairs of a student housing dorm in Bristol, England - but they are loving married life in the mystical country of Peru. Living within a stone's throw of the beach, embracing the fashion of sharing their lives through social media (the joy of expat life) and experiencing the adventurous shenanigans of life as a Kentuckian in Peru, this is a site full of real expat joy.

Peru Or Bust
https://galbavy.wordpress.com/

Eddie and Andrea are a couple of easy-going Peace Corp members that moved to Molinopampa, Amazonas, Peru. Their archive charts adventures in the new culture they immersed themselves in whilst representing the USA and providing aid - in between dodging the rainy season.

Destination Next Home
http://www.destinationnexthome.com/

After a thorough 4-6 weeks trialling 5 South American cities each - Florianopolis, Salvador de Bahia, Lima, Medellin and Bogota - this Venezuelan and Dutch couple settled on the exotic climes of Lima for their new abode. Sharing their experiences, tips and findings via the medium of their blog, they are settling into life as expats. This is excellent reading for anyone thinking to move to these cities - and for keeping up to date with ongoing mischief.

We’re always on the lookout for more sites to feature - if you run a blog about living in Peru, leave us a link in the comments and we’ll take a look!
