Descriptions- EXPAT FILES SHOW #859-FRI, MAY 24 (05-24-2019):


#1- The art of standing in line:

They say that we sleep 1/3 of our lives away but what’s less well known is how many Latinos spend a huge amount of their day killing time while standing in various lines. It’s a fact that there are so many lines (colas) in Latin America (most all are at or near govt buildings and banks) that there are hundreds of men and women who have full-time jobs as “line standers”.     


#2- Sign up is open for Johnny Mueller’s July 2019 “Expat Insider Seminar”:
