I am off to Lima again. This time I going to finally receive my Peruvian CARNET. My loose understanding is that a CARNET is a one year resident permit that has to be renewed every year. The advantage of a CARNET is that it serves as a valid Peruvian ID and can be renewed in country instead of a 90 day tourist VISA which requires leaving the country. The price for permanent residence includes a requirement of investing $10,000 in the Peruvian economy!
Here are some of my newest friends. I was thankful to get a picture with out loosing a nose... you never know when they might be hungry.
