Though I am only in Peru three to five months out of the year, I feel very much at home here. I recently signed up trying to find an international community in the Andes, Ayacucho perhaps. However, it appears that outside of Lima there is no organized activity for expats. I am currently -- and for the next 10 weeks -- in Cusco. As the gate to Machu Picchu for visitors from all over the globe, there are plenty of foreigners but the resident ones are limited to a handful of folks that I've come to know over the years. It sure would be nice to have organized get-togethers away from the gringo trail and tourist attractions!
