Descriptions- EXPAT FILES SHOW #1082 SUN, AUG 29 (08-29-21) 


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- Latin American Cov-idiot Fake News:
Yes, true to form, the lame street media is reporting fake Cov-idiot news coming out of Latin America too. Today we prove it with another “boots on the ground” report out of Mexico City…       
#2- Valuable tips for Spanish Dunces like me:
Today we report on the difficulties some if not most of us gringos have in Learning Spanish. When discussing the topic with language dunces like me, these questions always seem to come up;
How much Spanish is enough. how much really necessary and how much written Spanish you really have to know?
#3- How to NOT to be a foolish, clueless gringo “do gooder”:
Most Gringos and Expats have big hearts and are very generous. Unfortunately when they try to help out poor Latinos, most feel good by doing the act but are really just tossing their dough into the toilet. The question is, how can you make your charitable actions count.
#4- The “Wealthy Backpacker” phenomena:
What’s up with that? The term sounds like an oxymoron but they exist and I’ve met some of them. The wealthy ones certainly don’t advertise it. They strive to maintain a low profile but do leave subtle signs that prove they are cut from a different cloth than the “usual suspect” scruffy, tightwad backpacker stereotype.

#5- 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:
