If Peru were to the Cup, I'd be there... no matter if I had to sell my car - which I don't have, BTW :P. Too bad. I'll check it though, I really really fancy everything it's related to football.
I write in English because it seems like you might have more English readers than Spanish due to the language yo use and how they might arrive via search, I hope you don't mind (Good practice though!)

added the latest additions and a reader forum today.

Having spent the first 30 years of my life in Germany, I certainly can identify most of the the German stereotypes expressed in these articles. Fun stuff :-)

Perhaps I shall create a Peru Survival Bible soon....

just added two more entries today.

Damn, I miss my 'Currywurst'... yummy stuff!!
Once in a while (...probably 2 days a year...) the "Tottus" grocery store sells a raw version of "Thüringer" salchicha, from a peruvian meat factory named "Braedt". Then I make my own currywurst at home, served with a cold Flensburger Pilsener beer.
For me,it's like winning the lottery :-), if I miss those 2 days, I am doomed.
And asking the clerk for a little hint, when exacty the next opportunity arises, usually gets you nowhere. They don't know, they just sell. They either have it or they don't.

Got an idea! I think I should just get a license for one of those mobile snack carts they have in parks here and sell my own original German "Brat- and Currywurst". Perhaps it will catch on with Limeans.

but I shouldn't complain. Here you will find way more German products in grocery stores than in the United States. Although pricey, but thats normal for delicatessen...
