November 24, 2013  

-Don’t expats miss big holiday get togethers with traditional turkey dinners American style with all the tinsel and trimmings? Well some years ago yes, but not anymore. These days there’s no lack of holiday parties or big traditional spreads put on by any number of bars, clubs and local pro-USA organizations. You'll find gringo holiday parties in nearly every city in Latin America . Not to mention big international hotels also offer their versions of extravagant holiday gringo buffets. But note: there are some club-sponsored holiday events I would never go to myself…

-A report on how Latin governments perpetuate corrupt road and infrastructure construction practices.Hear how they celebrate badly-done completed projects and how they put together new batches of badly-conceived projects they can milk (while partying at 4-star first-world hotels)

-Latin couples have about 101 different “terms of endearment” they use when referring lovingly to each other. The funny thing is, if we used some of these same terms (translated to English of course) on our significant others stateside we’d be in the dog house for sure…

-What about "Smart Meters" on the houses in Latin America? Just wait till you hear this take on them from a power company insider!
