The Expat Files Show # 617 – December 18, 2016

 

#1- Expats Living in Latin America have lots of free time their hands. It’s a tough assignment but someone’s gotta do it.

#2- “Maids, Gardeners and Cleaning Ladies- For Dummies”:

Unfortunately no one’s written it yet, but there really should be a “Dummies” book for clueless expats.. Why? Because as with all new experiences in Latin America, gringos can certainly be clueless when it comes to the hired help. Things can go south. Yes, we all make mistakes and sometimes learn the hard way regarding our maids, gardeners, maintenance guys and cleaning ladies …(unless of course, someone does write that “For Dummies” book that begs to be written)

#3 Feeling a bit distressed because your only paying $12 to $15 a day to the maid, cleaning lady or gardener? There seems to be a common closeted guilt felt by many fresh green expats and gringos. That said, listen to the commentary and you might feel differently about it..

#4- Johnny’s next (and perhaps final) “Expat Insider” Plan ‘B’ Seminar will take place on Saturday, January 7th thru Thursday, January 12th , 2017. Just send an email to theexpatfiles@gmail.com or click on this link: http://thenewexpat.com/johnnys-anuary-2017-latin-american-insider-seminar/
