#1- The full dope on how to get practically any Latin Country driver’s license on the grey market, whether you qualify or not:
The advantages and pitfalls of getting and flashing a quasi-legal Driver’s License. Sure, most of the grey market DL’s look and feel perfectly legit, but there is a nagging question; are they truly 100% registered in the local govt. transit system and will they pass police muster? Its today’s first very un-PC “boots on the ground” story.  
#2- Protesting for George Floyd in Latin America:
Yes, police brutality and GF protest groups are popping up in many Latin big cities. Meanwhile the average Latino protester has no idea who the guy is, can’t spell his name and have no idea what a Minneapolis or Minnesota is, nor do they how to find it on the map.

You’ll be surprised at the answers (or maybe not)
