This article is an attempt to summarize the authoress' first encounter with two Latin American countries: Peru and Chile. She has been gathering data in these countries for her doctoral dissertation on Polish and Croatian emigrants who have arrived there in 19 and early 20 centuries. Despite that many guides and inhabitants stress the vast differences between Peru and Chile, the authoress notes that in fact a lot of aspects of life in these countries are similar and a level of commonality is widespread, which is actually quite characteristic of countries in that region. First thing that accompanies a European is a feeling of difference and otherness. Then she discovers her status as a tourist - the fact of being affluent, a traveler learns the meaning of the word 'gringo' or 'gringa', the concept of 'machismo', particular traffic rules, class stratification of Latin American society, corruption, strikes, social unrest and national megalomania
