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

July 9, 2012  
-Johnny’s seminar ended a few days ago. It’s over and now here’s some dirt on just what went down in that dangerous, blacklisted, backwater (according to the US State Department website) known as Guatemala.
-Third world airport stories. Walking through an airport down here is like pre- 9/11: no scanners, no pat-downs, no shoes-off, no dogs, no pompous feces-headed TSA bureaucrats anywhere to be seen in Latin America (they’re only your privates where YOU live!)
-Why are there so many short, dark, indigenous people hanging around third world airports? 95% of them aren’t selling anything, so who are they waiting there for? You’ll be surprised!
-The big city Latin American real estate bubble; it’s got all the signs of a peak and is just looking for a pin to pop it. I’ll give it another year or so and then we’ll be able to pick off the penthouses and beach houses at 25 cents on the dollar.
-Guatemala has just been rated by an international committee in Europe as having the fifth happiest people in the entire world (out of 190+ countries). I wonder why the US State Department website doesn’t warn us about THAT revolting development.
-Now you can follow the link on the main page at to schedule a consultation with me. If you want to discuss the details of living, working, playing, doing business and/or retiring in Latin America, now you and I can talk about your situation one on one.
