Expat Files – 02.17.17

#1-Extortion, crime, drunken bus drivers and 101 more reasons expats should not ride the chickenbus: today a report from an organization loosely translated as “The Latin Widows of Chickenbus Drivers” (I kid you not)
#2- Some recent unbelievable examples demonstrating the extreme incompetence in Latin Governments: though it sounds crazy stupid and very bad at first, on closer inspection its really a good thing for freedom loving gringos and expats (in sort of a backhanded way). Monumental screw ups like these demonstrate further proof that a Big Brother state (as we’ve come to know it in the states) can never really take off in Latin America(not in our lifetimes anyway).  
#3- Thinking about Bolivia as a “Plan B” destination? Then you should know about some f the strangely odd and expensively narcissistic quirks of Bolivia’s President Evo “EGO” Morales  
#6- Make a note: Saturday July 8th thru Thursday July 13th 2017 will be the dates for my next “EXPAT INSIDER SEMINAR”. Get on the earlybird mailing list by sending an email to: theexpatfiles@gmail.com
#7- Johnny’s new “Expat Essentials Course” is a blueprint for your “Plan B” and the best way kick-start your own plan before coming to Latin America. See the three video intros to the “Expat Essentials” course at www.ExpatPlanB.com
