The Expat Files Show # 686 – August 25, 2017

 

 

#1- Gringos with too much time on their hands often try to mold their Latin American paradise into a synthetic 1stworld replica. The results are often not pretty. That’s one reason why we don’t recommend Costa Rica, Panama, and most of Gringoized Mexico. Why leave the states and turn your paradise into a lush tropical Cleveland with nice weather. Makes you wonder why people like that leave the states when they could just move to Florida .
 
#2- Gringos often arrive on the scene a bit frazzled. Many are addicted to stress and are mentally chained to their own private treadmill (thought it’s slowly killing them). That’s why some new expats just can’t relax and need a bit of pressure or a goal or two (at least in small doses) to feel comfortable in paradise. If not, they remain antsy or worse. Today’s “boots on the ground” story deals with the subject..
 
#3– Bullfights in Latin America (especially Mexico) have a long and gory history. Yes, they still have them but they are fast losing popularity. The younger generation is now more obsessed with gadgets and social media- not to mention that in most countries the spectacle has been softened since you can’t kill the bull anymore, only torture him.    
 
#4-More on Bitcoin Mining in Latin America
