Descriptions- EXPAT FILES SHOW #1020, FRI, JAN 08 (01-08-21)

The latest Latin American Seminar was scheduled for January 8th thru 14th, 2021. However, just when things were calming down, the “usual suspect’ Cov-Idiot knuckleheads in government along with talking head scientists (in the pocket of big pharma) have once again decided to arbitrarily place heavier restrictions on airports and arbitrarily imposing new lockdown restrictions (i.e. Soviet style house arrests). The excuse this time being an imminent so-called 2nd wave. Stay tuned for the new rescheduled dates- (estimated to be in March or April) when US and Latin America airports start accepting the cheap (1 to 3 dollar) rapid 5 minute paper strip Cov-idiot test that is now used and widely accepted in Asia and Europe and projected to be in March or April .  
#1- Late breaking Lockdown and Cov-idiot News:
Finally, starting with Ecuador, Latin Country Supreme courts are just now starting to come to their senses. Thy are starting to ruling that lock-downs and restrictions are unscientific, unconstitutional and just stupid.
#2- Costa Rican politicians punish and further their systematic gouging of gringo and expat property owners:
This time its in the form of a new “Luxury Tax” on properties worth more than $200,000.

#3- And now few words about gringo and expat tightwads and cheapskates in Latin America:

#4- Yes, I am a hypocrite too, and here's how...

#5- More about being in the trenches in the Latin Dating and mating game- Part 6:
Suggestions, tips and pitfalls that gringo and gringa expats (and wanabees) need to know.

#6- Get a 100% legal (and well respected) 2nd Country Passport online and in just 60 days!

The Corona virus has killed Latin American and Caribbean Island tourism so tax revenues have dried up. Governments are broke and a small few have reacted by offering passport by investment programs. I have personally vetted the best legit one. Amazingly, you can apply online without wasting time or repeatedly flying back and forth to the country. That’s a first! For details email; and listen to the complete explanation outlined in “The Expat Files” show program aired on June 28, 2020.        

#7- Do you want to get into the exploding Crypto-currency world but don’t feeling quite confident enough to dive in?
Our own Captain Mango has developed a unique one-on-one Crypto consulting and training service (he’s been deep into crypto since 2013). To get started, email him at:

#10- Be sure to pick up my newly updated, "LATIN AMERICAN HEALTHCARE REPORT":
