Descriptions- EXPAT FILES SHOW #862-SUN, JUNE 02 (06-02-2019):


#1- More dirt about the underbelly of Mexico that you really need to know- Part 2:

Many gringos and expats hanging and living in ever more gringoized areas in Mexico say they love it. Yes, it may be just swell now, for you but for how long? If Mexico is your Plan B, the question you have to ask is, “What will Mexico’s near future be like? Are things getting better there or worse?” Problem is, the Narco life is but a stone’s throw away from those nice, protected, gringoized Mexican towns. The reality is that the Narcos own Mexico, including the army, the cops and the government. It’s worse than you think. That said, how’s your “Plan C” coming?   


#2- English language newspapers and magazines in Latin America :

When in Latin America, anywhere there are gringos and tourists there will be English language newspapers and magazines. However the news stories in the local Spanish language newspapers will be more frank than the news section in the local English language version(s). Meanwhile gringos will get the watered own version in English for the sake of preserving the tourist trade.


#3- They say God protects babies, drunks, grandmas and backpackers:

Today’s “boots on the ground” story…
