The Expat Files: Living in Latin America A guide to moving to Latin America, finding work, and settling in.

November 13, 2016  
#1- DUI’s and gringos in Latin America. What you should know if you get stopped for drinking and driving
 
#2 Trump and the present state of Latin high anxiety over his win:
As many Latin ‘on the street; roving reporters busily interview the nervious, ghostly faces of illegals on main street USA, gringos living in Mexico express worry and concern that there may be a coming backlash. Some worry about property confiscations as a retaliatory measure should millions of Mexican illegals get deported and the promised wall go up. Meanwhile, south of Mexico.. there is absolutely no sign or talk of such animosity as life in paradise goes on as usual.    
 
#3-For curious listeners- today you’ll hear a few things about me you've never heard before.
 
#4- Tens of thousands of gringo permanent residents in Mexico qualify for a Mexican passport and naturalization but never go down to immigration and apply for citizenship. They just keep renewing their residency cards. They should go for the Passport all means but somehow just don’t. Why is that?   
 
#5- Johnny’s next (and perhaps final) “Expat Insider” Plan ‘B’ Seminar will take place on Saturday, January 7th thru Thursday, January 12th , 2017. Just send an email totheexpatfiles@gmail.com or click on this link: http://thenewexpat.com/johnnys-anuary-2017-latin-american-insider-seminar/

#6. Announcing the new “Podcast by Phone” feature. You now have a way to listen to the last FIVE Expat Files programs over the phone. The  number for this service is: 1-701-719-0893
 
#7- Johnny’s new “Expat Essentials Course” is a Plan B blueprint for people who can’t get “boots on the ground” just yet. It’s the next best way to get started without coming to Latin America yourself. Go to www.ExpatPlanB.com for the three video intros to my new “Expat Essentials” course.

#1- What taxes do expat gringos generally have to pay to their new Latin country’s government thieves and scumbags?

#2 Latin countries “on the gringo tourist trail” try to adopt and often directly copy US tax systems and regs: another very good reason to avoid high tax Latin countries like Argentina, Chile, Brazil, Costa Rica Panama and just recently(and perhaps worst of all) Colombia.

#3- Today we have a stark Colombian “boots on the ground” story from a gringo resident of 8 years. Though happily married to a Colombian girl, he tells a story that will make you think twice about setting up your “Plan B” in that country.

#4- Words and phrases like “Sale”, “VIP”, “Black Friday” and other gringo-isms are in common use in Latin America. Latin gringo wananbees use them over and over, not having a clue as to what the words and phrases really mean.

#5- Thoughts on having car insurance in Latin America

#1- Latin street fairs and amusement parks. Are the rides safe for you and your family? Well maybe, but then that’s part of the fun and thrill isn’t it.

#2- Latin Zoos are very bad 1st world copies- they are really just stupid govt displays that ostensibly promote a 3rd world country’s progress and pride but almost always end in sadness and tragedy for the poor suffering animals.

#3- Latins and their abused, neurotic and tormented pets- 95% of Latins  don’t deserve to have pets and most would be in court for animal abuse if 1st world standards were applied.

#4- Latin roadways and road designs appear to have been designed by schizophrenic morons with photo-shopped civil engineer diplomas

#5-A very scary email from an expat German listener. You won’t hear this stuff anywhere else.

#1- Short term rentals and Air B&B’s in Latin America Part 2:

#2- Discussing the hundreds of Latin herbal and natural medicines and the product claims:

#3- Latin American Health Departments and a thing called ‘cuello”

#4- The Spanish language has about 1/3 less descriptive words than the English language but the Latins (much like Italians )make up for it with  hand gestures and body language. Today we have some examples...

#5-No prescriptions are necessary at most Latin American drug stores. With such easy drug availability, why aren’t the Latin masses addicted to what we call “schedule” prescription drugs? Well, they just aren’t and that flies in the face of conventional wisdom.

#6 -Venezuela- more crazy stories just now leaking out.

#7 More reasons why Argentina is not recommend as a permanent Plan B destination: Today’s “boots on the ground” story highlights that country’s currency controls in action and why we all should own physical gold and/or silver and take physical possession wherever we are.

#8- Johnny’s next (and perhaps final) “Expat Insider” Plan ‘B’ Seminar will take place on Saturday, January 7th thru Thursday, January 12th , 2017. Send an email to theexpatfiles@gmail.com or click on this link: http://thenewexpat.com/johnnys-anuary-2017-latin-american-insider-seminar/
