Expat Files – 11.03.17

#1- Do locals celebrate Halloween in Latin America? I’ll say they do, but why? It took a few years for them to jump on board, but now they’ve grabbed onto the gringo Halloween tradition with a vengeance.

Study: The ability to control dreams may help us unravel the mystery of consciousness

We spend around six years of our lives dreaming – that’s 2,190 days or 52,560 hours. Although we can be aware of the perceptions and emotions we experience in our dreams, we are not conscious in the same way as when we’re awake. This explains why we can’t recognise that we’re in a dream and often mistake these bizarre narratives …
