Descriptions- EXPAT FILES SHOW #845 -FRI, APR 05 (04-05-2019):
#1- Some gringos and expats have so-called unconventional reasons for moving to Latin America. But these days the unconventional is becoming more common place:
A professional data miner speaks of his intention to move to Latin America in order to reduce his IT footprint and gain back some of the privacy he has lost by living in the USA. Today he gives us his step by step plan.
#2- Sign up is now open for Johnny Mueller’s July 2019 “Expat Insider Seminar”:
The week-long event will take place in Central America from Saturday, July 6th through Thursday, July 11th. The early-bird discounts are in effect. Just go to: www.thenewexpat.com and click on the “seminar” link.
#3- You can get Botox at $5 a unit from a certified plastic surgeon in Latin America:
Unless you are a self-conscious lady, waging a war against time, that $5 figure might not mean much to you. But since the going rate at a legit USA Plastic surgeon’s office is more like $20 a unit (and I was told by a formerly wrinkly Gringa lady that the average treatment is 50 units or $1000). You can see why the Latina anti-aging business is booming.
#4- Sex, Lies and Tears- when Latino men cry:
Yep Latinos can get teary eyed on cue, especially when caught two-timing the ladies. And the sensitive remorseful male angle works on them for a while. BTW: DYK the number one tear jerker movie of all time for Latina ladies is “Titanic”? (translated in Spanish of course) Who’d a thunk?
It’s embarrassing to watch gringo shout-outs and tantrums. Unsurprisingly, they’re almost always triggered by episodes of crappy Latin customer service. It’s a fact that incidents mostly occur in restaurants and hotels on the gringo tourist trail- why would it be otherwise?
#6- Johnny’s new “Expat Essentials Course” is a blueprint for your “Plan B” and the best way kick-start your exit plan before getting boots on the ground in Latin America. Check out the free intro video to the course now at www.theexpatfiles.com/academy
