Not that it needs to be said, but spelling isn’t a strong suit here in Peru. For example, in Spanish, the ‘B’ and 'V’ are pronounced the same. So on a daily basis, I will see signs for “Cebiche” and “Ceviche”. Which is of course raw seafood with limes and other things. Some free advice, don’t eat Ceviche from a street vendor, spend that 10 extra soles and get yourself to a restaurant with minimum hygienic standards. 
 Spelling in Peru: Weak. But boy oh boy, I sure do love me a good sandwish.
