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

July 30, 2012  
Sexist macho guy social activities like government employee beauty pageants are actually organized and supported by local Latin governments, where govt women workers are encouraged to show how "hot" they are. Events like this pervade all countries south of the boarder and in macho societies no one complains about the kind of stuff that would cause quite a stir up in Cleveland.
-I’ll bet you a shot of tequila you never knew that if you date a middle-class Latin American woman, and she really really ikes you, you'll not get invited to her house to meet the folks (or for a sometimes revolting dinner) for some weeks or more. Don’t even try to guess why- it’s not at all what you might think.
-Why are there so many beautiful Latin women wandering around Wal-Marts and the big shopping centers; all dressed in skimpy skin-tight clothing and handing out everything from free Pepsi Cola to Doritos (even shots of Jack Daniels)? Its because the pay’s good and other perks! Sure, being born middle-class and beautiful anywhere is often a winning ticket to a higher social class (if that beautiful he or she plays their cards right), and nowhere is that more evident than in Latin America. But unfortunately most of the pretty ladies in that position have a few great years but just DON’T play their cards right and lose the lottery in the end
-The continuing saga of Expat Eddie; he’s between a rock and a hard place again and this time he wants me to supply the Vaseline.
