NOW FOR TODAY’S EXPAT FILES SHOW:

SOME GRINGOS AND EXPATS NEVER LEARN:

A high percentage of Gringos and Expats living in Latin America still believe in the American Republi-Rat political system. Talk about clueless Gringos! It’s a good thing most of those “brain lost” types are found living “on the gringo tourist trail”…and for me its reason number 4536 why I recommend living “off the tourist trail”. Here’s the scoop on that travesty…

-HOW LATIN AMERICANS VIEW AMERICAN PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATES:

Historically, Latins couldn’t care one frijole about US politics. However, for the first time ever local Latins are paying extreme attention to the race. The only issue for Latins here is immigration of course and today you’ll find out the crap the Latin media is spreading and hoe the locals are reacting…

-NOT ALL LATINS HATE TRUMP:

You’ll be surprised to hear that most upscale and wealthy Latins American secretly hope Trump wins. Why? Because they’re embarrassed and shamed by the negative stereotypes created by those who have slipped into the US illegally. Many Latins with dough and education actually want Trump to build a wall to keep then sweaty masses out. Wealthy Latins are very classist and hate that white-bread US citizens seem to paint all classes Latins with the same negative brush.

CHECK OUT THE NEW EXPAT “CONCIERGE SERVICE”:

What’s an Expat “Concierge Service”?

People planning to become expats always start the process with a big “To Do List”. However, they often don’t speak much Spanish or have a trusted network of resources to lean on in their new Latin country of choice. They often just don’t know where to start, or who to trust.

Enter the New Expat “CONCIERGE SERVICE”……

In short, whatever you need done on your Expat “To Do List”- whether it’s after you arrive in Latin America or while you’re still up in the states– the “Concierge” ladies will hand hold you through the process and get it done.

For example: you may need individual help and guidance with things like; renting, buying, building, health insurance, car purchases, drivers license, visa renewals, credit cards, banking, residency, business startups, business consulting, internet, phone and utility hookups, medical and legal services, maids, caregivers, gardeners, nurses, MD’s, specialists, dentists, hospitals, clinics, paying bills, translations, and of course weaving through the local government bureaucracies, etc., etc. You name the project, large or small, and a bilingual “concierge” lady will hold your hand through it and see that you get your checklist done.

Yes, I personally know and highly recommend this team. Better yet, each “Concierge” lady is college educated, and has her own car (so you won’t have to pay to rent one or take taxis everywhere). Note we’re not talking “Gringo Prices” either!!!

For more info email me: theexpatfiles@gmail.com and write the word “CONCIERGE” in the subject line.
