    I worked with a Peruvian guy, who spoke mostly Spanish with me. I asked him to pass me the tape measure which is called a “metro” in Spain and most other countries and he didn’t understand. Instead he called it a “guincha” which is the English “winch”

    • JaredRomey

      They also use “guincha” in Chile. The more common term used for tape measure is “cinta” or “cinta métrica:.

    “Indio de mierda”

    Yeah that’s racist as fuck… Sucks there’s racism in Peru against indios… That’s why that phrase is common, because racism in peru against indios is pretty strong, which is stupid because almost everybody in Peru is either Indio or at least part-indio….
