ok - here's the update and then I'm done.
I agree; I was kind of a douche on my response because I was sort of ticked off how she talked about it; like I was holding out on her. I cooled off for a day and then we met up to talk "rationally" about expenses. She was the one who brought the "Peruvian Soles" on the trip while I paid everything with credit cards when applicable. We ran through the statements and after 10 days of traveling, I owed her $150 in dollars for miscellaneous expenses. By the way, Guinea Pig is a popular dish down there and is actually pretty good.
Anyway, we agreed not to discuss things like this over email and also promised to communicate better about who pays for what in advance. It was her idea to travel to Peru, and although we've only been dating for a few months and I'm willing to pay for a lot, I'd prefer not to pay for all expenses (even though some of you guys say otherwise). My biggest mistake is that I didn't reconcile this immediately when we got back. I apologized and said it wouldn't happen again.
I gave her some flowers and we sat around watching the 121212 concert on TV last night. It's all good.
pics of girlfriend ASAP!
So you still owe her $150 of ?

Agreed. Now that we know she's pretty demanding and particular, we need to assess how hot she is. That will determine if we collectively say stay or go.

was she eating guinee pigs like they were chicken wings? like stick a whole one in her mouth and just pull out the bones?
So weak. Get out now if you've only been with her for a few months.
Actually, she's not very demanding or particular, which is why this one incident rubbed me the wrong way. We said that we would ask the RCMB for their advice since they are uniquely qualified to discuss relationship matters.
For the most part, it has been the only time that we even had a disagreement in 5 months of dating. She cried when I said that the letter seemed disrespectful to me. (gotta set a standard of expectations) She could have phrased the question about money in a way that didn't make me defensive. And I... could have been much less of a dick.
For anyone who has dated Latina women, the blood runs pretty hot, but they are passionate as well. You take some good with some bad.. It's a trade-off.
Here we are at a site outside of Cusco with a bunch of mummies laying around.
You should break up with her. And then PM me her phone number.
I hate it when women use both question marks and exclamation points right next to each other.

Are you guys wearing matching pants in that picture?
no. And we're wearing different pants. She's a bicycling fanatic and rides 30 miles a day so the next trip might be to England to ride across the countryside. Obviously, we'll figure out who's paying for what ahead of time.
which one is the mummy?
I'm glad you two were able to talk this through :) And she's cuuute!
Big ups to you for apologizing while also calling her out (nicely, of course) for the lame email
"I've got a refrigerator for you, Alexis...f#@* off."
So are you, like, about to bend her over a decaying corpse?
Nom Nom Nom...
