Descriptions- EXPAT FILES SHOW #848-SUN, APR 14 (04-14-2019):
#1- Colombia is the next Costa Rica, right? What a terrible thought:
I lived in CR for almost 3 years, had a city house and a beach house and a going business there. I left 25 years ago while going was good. Why? Because I saw the storm clouds of the gringo invasion on the horizon. There was a feeling of trouble in paradise. Yet today there’s talk in gringo expat circles and International Living followers that Colombia is the next CR… as if that were a great thing! Well today we have some comments and analysis from a listener with 9 years of living in Colombia. He is seeing the invasion first hand. Guess what? He’s packing his bags and looking for another Latin country location untainted by gringo hordes. And when he finds it, he promises he won’t tell a soul…
#2- Once upon a time stateside kids and families lived in their own kind of paradise, even if by fate they happened to have lived in Dodge, New Jersy or Cleveland:
The best advice is that when good old memories become painful to recount, that’s when it’s time to get out of Dodge. Yes, we all have good memories of how things use to be. Remember that old friendly neighbor support system that just doesn’t exist anymore? Today we’ll hear a vivid story from an “expat insider” seminar attendee. He has a sound but completely different theory as to why things have gone so wrong in Dodge (and Cleveland) starting back in the late 1950s. You probably haven’t hear this take on first world entropy before…
