-By popular demand: Another late-breaking update on the unfolding Guatemalan political scandal. People in all 20 Latin American countries have been talking endlessly about it (and in a good way too!)

-A discussion of ongoing problems most newly arrived gringos and expats have when trying to get simple things done using the phone. Note: when you’re off the gringo tourist trail and try to dial up a business there will be no convenient recording that says, “For English Press 1”.
Nope, that’s not gonna happen.

-When gringos come down as couples, inevitably one of the two almost always absorbs Spanish better, faster and more completely than the other. Oddly enough its usually the female. This phenomena usually forces her to into the couple’s default translator role whether she likes it or not.

-Today Captain Mango gives an on the spot “off the tourist trail” report on a few of his recent and more convoluted Latin banking experiences. Note: Captain Mango’s Spanish is about as good as his Swahili, so don’t laugh… you might be in the same boat when you first come down.

My guest this week is Steve McIntosh, an important evolutionary writer whose new book, “The Presence of the Infinite”, offers new insights to bring more people on board in the quest for Beauty, Truth and Goodness.

He believes we’re all following spiritual paths, even those who don’t believe in spirit. Also science understands there are deeper realities we need to respect. He feels that these on profound levels we can more readily embrace an evolutionary drive in the pursuit of Beauty, Truth and Goodness.

-A update on the Latin American real estate bubble

-Can you guess the three biggest complaints gringos and expats have once they’ve moved into a house or apartment down in Latin America? Also, some tips on how one should deal with them

-Rarely do Latin countries get mentioned at all in first-world news headlines. Seems that unless there’s a big disaster, catastrophic loss of life, volcano blast, tsunami or scandal of epic proportions; the first-world media pretty much doesn’t give a rip about their short, brown neighbors south of the border. North Americans just aren’t interested. So then, why recently has little “off the toursit trail” Guatemala been getting a few 1st world media mentions here and there? Turns out, in the past few weeks there’s been some extraordinary political shenanigans happening down there. So by popular demand, today we have an overview along with some clarifications regarding the weird and unprecedented political and social events going on in that small Central American country.
