July 1, 2018  

Descriptions- EXPAT FILES SHOW #771 SUN, JULY 01- (07-01-2018):

#1- Big Brother is making it harder and harder for you to get your ass an assets out of dodge:

Today we have an amazing “boots on the ground” story of just how bad it can get and what kind of wringer the bureaucrats can put you through if they have a mind to(we’re assuming they have minds). Worse yet, this example comes from those so-called ‘terminally nice folks” up there in Canada.       

#2- Our newly insured Gringa takes her first trip to a medical specialist and visits a 1st world hospital/clinic for tests and more- Part 2: It’s our latest and greatest, extremely informative and eye opening “boots on the ground” story involving Latin America Healthcare systems .

#3-When gringos and expats get robbed:

This time we have two separate, “boots on the ground” robbery stories dealing with gringos and expats who should have known better. But as you will see, most all of us arrive in Latin America starry-eyed and clueless. We arrive as vulnerable and easy marks, especially when we land in highly gringoized areas. Though funny enough, sometimes being robbed is one of the best lessons a newbee expat can learn… as long as the crooks don’t get too much.       

 #4- Johnny’s next “Latin American Insider” seminar is near to launch. It will take place from Saturday, July 7th thru Thursday, July 12th 2018. Get the details and the scoop on the early-bird discounts by going to and clicking on the “seminar” link.
