-Is Spain a good starting place for would be expats? Today some comparisons between living in Spain versus Latin America.
-Get ready for another chapter in the crazy life of Expat Eddie. This time he’s got the maid and her 14year-old daughter living at his house. You’ll be a be surprised and perhaps shocked at the circumstances… and how its all been unfolding.    
-Have you ever heard of a bruja? Every middle and lower middle class Latin neighborhood has one. It means “witch” in Spanish and also the name given to the neighborhood fortune teller/soothsayer, potion mixer/spell caster.
Yup, Latins are very, very superstitious. When all else fails in the love, romance, health and money departments the person makes a date with the local bruja and pays a fee- whether she gets the desired results or not; note the bruja clients are nearly always women! By the way, the word “brujaria” describes the acts and spells the brujas’ perform.
-Latins most commonly visit brujas, #1- to either make someone fall in love or regain a love interest that’s strayed, #2- to fix money problems, #3- to cure physical ills the doctor can’t.
So do brujas really work? I doubt it, but they say it beats Obamacare.
