Latin cops know that women drivers are not easily extorted, but men are!

Today’s “boots on the ground” story

 #2- There is one particular country in Latin America that has the highest traffic fines in the world so look out!! 

Can you guess the country? Even though the vast majority of Latin countries have traffic fines that are laughable compared to first world countries, there is this one huge exception to the rule.   

 #3- How Johnny Mueller beat a radar gun traffic violation in court.

A very personal and original “boots on the ground” story from the good ole days 

#4- Everyone seems to want to know if Gringos and Expats can qualify for home and business loans from Latin American banks.

Today we go over a genuine loan and mortgage application (translated from Spanish) so you can see just what the requisites are, and if you can qualify.

#5- Johnny’s new “Expat Essentials Course” is a blueprint for your “Plan B” and the best way kick-start your exit plan before getting boots on the ground in Latin America. Check out the free intro video to the course now at www.theexpatfiles.com/academy

#1- Need to make money in Latin America?

In today’s discussion we talk about how to find a business niche or create one, and then how to fill it.

 #2- More on the Gold and Silver purchase and shipment situation in Latin America;

DYK that there are many active gold and silver mines that are producing in Latin America? So where do you think the ore gets refined and made into coins and ingots? How about in Latin America?  

 #3- www.OLX.com- You must check it out:

It’s so much more than a local Latin American Craig’s List. At www.OLX.com you can post photos of what you want to buy or sell and then chat back and forth with prospective buyers and sellers. It’s an easy way to weed out the tire kickers etc, and you’ll learn some basic Spanish and increase your vocabulary at the same time. Best of all its free!!

#4- Everything you ever wanted to know about how and why some gringos and expats can just never learn Spanish, no matter how they try or how many years they have lived in a Latin country.

Descriptions- EXPAT FILES SHOW #771 SUN, JULY 01- (07-01-2018):

#1- Big Brother is making it harder and harder for you to get your ass an assets out of dodge:

Today we have an amazing “boots on the ground” story of just how bad it can get and what kind of wringer the bureaucrats can put you through if they have a mind to(we’re assuming they have minds). Worse yet, this example comes from those so-called ‘terminally nice folks” up there in Canada.       

#2- Our newly insured Gringa takes her first trip to a medical specialist and visits a 1st world hospital/clinic for tests and more- Part 2: It’s our latest and greatest, extremely informative and eye opening “boots on the ground” story involving Latin America Healthcare systems .

#3-When gringos and expats get robbed:

This time we have two separate, “boots on the ground” robbery stories dealing with gringos and expats who should have known better. But as you will see, most all of us arrive in Latin America starry-eyed and clueless. We arrive as vulnerable and easy marks, especially when we land in highly gringoized areas. Though funny enough, sometimes being robbed is one of the best lessons a newbee expat can learn… as long as the crooks don’t get too much.       

 #4- Johnny’s next “Latin American Insider” seminar is near to launch. It will take place from Saturday, July 7th thru Thursday, July 12th 2018. Get the details and the scoop on the early-bird discounts by going to www.TheNewExpat.com and clicking on the “seminar” link.
