Associations and Clubs

The American and Canadian Association of Peru
The ACAP is an organization dedicated to affording American and Canadian citizens the opportunity to enjoy the culture and heritage of their native countries while enjoying and adapting to the customs and history of Peru.
Canadian Alumni Association
The Canadian Alumni Association is open to anybody who has studied in Canada. Most of the members are Peruvian, but expats are encouraged to join. The Association organizes lectures and social events several times a year.
The International Toastmasters Club of Peru
This Toastmasters Club is an English-language public speaking workshop. Members improve their communication abilities by giving prepared and impromptu speeches on a wide range of topics. Membership is mixed between English-speaking Peruvians and foreigners living in, or visiting, Peru. This club meets once a week on Tuesday nights. Guests are always welcome. This is a great way to meet new people.

The Lima Hash House Harriers
There are Hash House Harrier groups all over the world, and Peru is no exception. The Lima Hashers refer to themselves as "Drinkers with a running problem". They meet in different locations in and outside of Lima every few weeks for an organized event. You don’t have to be an athlete to get involved. The Hash always has two routes: one for runners, the other for walkers. Afterwards, there is always food, drinks and music. Hashes in Lima attract from 20 to 60 people, both foreigners and locals. Participating with the Hash is a good way to make local friends and to get to know the geography of Lima.
To receive the details of their runs - and be privy to the banter between the members - send an empty mail with nothing in the subject line to: LimaHHH-subscribe@yahoogroups.com. Be forewarned that this can generate quite a bit of traffic to your mailbox. If you want the basic information, but without the banter, join the EXPATRIATE LIST (above).
