Descriptions- EXPAT FILES SHOW #1059 SUN, MAY 30 (05-30-21)

The latest Latin American Seminar was scheduled for January 8th thru 14th, 2021. However, since the “usual suspect’ Cov-Idiot knuckleheads in government along with talking head scientists (in the pocket of big pharma) arbitrarily place restrictions at airports and impose new lockdowns (i.e. Soviet style house arrests), please stay tuned for the new rescheduled dates (estimated to be in late Summer). That will happen when USA and Latin America airports drop the Cov-idiot test requirements, scheduled to be when so-called "Herd Immunity" has been achieved. We’re on it and will keep you posted…    


#1- If you're considering a self-sufficient Expat life in the Boonies you really need to hear this:
With today’s first “boots on the ground” story we discuss the highs, lows, joys and difficulties of living far away from a good sized Latino town or city. The question is, can you handle it? Much depends on if your significant other is on the same page.
#2- The sad truth is that the vast majority of Latinos neglect their pets and treat most animals badly:

#3- Be careful when installing solar panels in Latin America:
Hers are four things you've never considered that could subtly damage or degrade the maximum system output power from day one.

#4- If you’re confused by the scary hubbub about Bitcoin and cryptos being supreme energy hogs and carbon polluters, you really need to hear this:

#5- A few complaints from gringos living in Latin America you’ve noticed but probably never analyzed:
All gringos have an ever growing list of 3rd world complaints. Many gringos are annoying chronic complainers (I’m sure you know a few). Today we discuss persistent small irritations that you can never change… and nope they’re not the usual complaints like manana time, lack of details, potholes and bad drivers.

#6- The truth about those street and restaurant dogs:

#7- Do you want to get into the exploding Crypto-currency world but don’t feeling quite confident enough to dive in?
Our own Captain Mango has developed a unique one-on-one Crypto consulting and training service (he’s been deep into crypto since 2013). To get started, email him at:

#8- Be sure to pick up my newly updated, "LATIN AMERICAN HEALTHCARE REPORT":
