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

December 21, 2018  

#1- Encountering scary, smart Expats:

Odds are, visiting Latin America, you’ll discover the average Expat gringo by no means “average” at all. Just the fact that an American is on board with a “Plan B” means he/she a thinking person and in a class by himself. However, the same can’t be said about the majority of NGO “do-gooders” that come to Latin America in organized hive-like groups. You’ll encounter many zombiefied NGO mental lightweights- mainly off the tourist trail. You’ll recognize them at airports too, by their eerily similar looks, matching T-shirts and generic “save the world” type kumbayah slogans.          

#2- How NGO "do-gooders" are NOT helping Latin America:

Though their primary goals appear noble- helping the poor unwashed Latin masses- the secondary effects of NGO troopers on the ground, i.e., their freebees and dissemination of socialist political attitudes and platitudes do more harm than good.    

 #3- Procrastination is NOT your friend. The clock is ticking for anyone planning to getting ass and assets out of Uncle Sam-land:

Know that your “Plan B” window of opportunity is very short. Although you may have a year or two get your physical ass out of Dodge, getting your assets out will be another thing. Worse case, you need to be thinking about how to make money once you arrive.
