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

November 16, 2018  

#1- Today we have a Latina and a Gringa lady getting in the final words on mating/dating and mixed culture romantic relationships   

#2- Announcing Johnny Mueller’s January 2019 “Expat Insider Seminar”: It will take place from Saturday, January 5th through Friday January 11th. For info and early-bird signup details visit www.TheNewExpat.comand click on the Seminar link 

#3- Today we have a case where a listener so seriously hates his soul-deadening first-world job (stuck all day in a cubicle)that it became the final straw that pushed him to get his “Plan B” underway. He’s by no means the Lone Ranger! What about you?

 #4- More and more newly arrived expats and gringos are calling themselves Libertarians or believe strongly in libertarian principles. They are definitely NOT affiliated with or have anything in common with republicans or democrats. Even so, they are greatly outnumbered by gringo and expat “do gooder” democrat types with definite socialist leanings, with a huge number of them collecting US public school teacher’s pensions. Hmm, what does that tell you? And as for republicans, they are well outnumbered down here by the more vocal democrats     

#5- There is no daylight saving time in Latin America. Why? Because there is no daylight to save! In the vast majority of Latin countries-where gringos set up their “Plan B's”- the sun rises and sets pretty much at the same time every day, more or less at 6 am and 6 pm year round. 

#6- Hiking and camping in the boonies of Latin America. It sounds like fun, but isn't it dangerous? Yes, there are always rumors going around to that effect, but are they true? 

#7- What might be the proper (or suggested) guns and ammo to have in Latin America? That's always a question from gringos and expats who were used to having guns up in the states for self-defense or sport.

#8- Johnny’s new “Expat Essentials Course” is a blueprint for your “Plan B” and the best way kick-start your exit plan before getting boots on the ground in Latin America. Check out the free intro video to the course now at  

#9- Check out my “The Expat Files” You Tube channel. See all the fun slides and photos that go along with each show. There are now more than 150 shows posted on my YouTube channel so have a look.
