The Expat Files: Living in Latin America A guide to moving to Latin America, finding work, and settling in.

June 9, 2017  

#1- Top 10 mistakes green gringos and expats make when first arriving at their so-called “ideal”Latin American paradise.

#2-Today some examples why you can’t believe half of what you read on the many Expat blogs and websites(except maybe on The Expat Files… just maybe).

#3 EXPAT RULE #1-By the time the media and rags like International Living have announce the Latin American expat gringo retirement destination flavor of the month, you can be dead sure that Elvis has long since left the building.

#4- Many many gringo Expats in Latin America work off the books at brick and mortar establishments. Technically its illegal but thousands do it. Today we discuss those cash jobs- the how, where and when.

#5-Meet the new boss- same as the old boss: today a few kind, Christian words about those repugnant, megalomaniac Latin American government bureaucrats, politicians, dictators and other dyed-in-the-wool sociopaths. Simply put, they’re bad copies of our own malignant stateside political scum, though with noticeably lower IQ’s. Therefore Latin politicos are more careless and tend to get caught early in their crimes. However they rarely do the time and in fact often become infamous folk heroes (kinda like Bill Clinton)
