The Expat Files # 677 – July 23, 2017

 

 

#1- A frequent question from listeners: “Johnny, where would you live if you had to settle down and have your “Plan B” in Mexico?” Today you’ll get the full, unabridged answer.
 
#2- In Mexico the prices are going up, up, up. You might be surprised at the reasons why. That’s all bad news for the hundreds of thousands of Gringo and Expat pensioners living on SS checks and low-end fixed pensions.
 
#3-With tattoos, face piercings and ink displays all the rage in the states and Europe, what about here in Latin America? Naturally there’s the usual lag time, with most of that stuff seen regularly in gringo tourist areas. Of course Latin gangstas have always been into body mutilation, though now its also spreading to certain rebellious Latin college kids too.. the ones who somehow think they are being gringo-like and edgy.
 
#4- For many reasons I don’t recommend that newbee gringos and Expats live in big Latin cities. There are so many better, safer, cleaner, more wide open and beautiful alternatives down here. That said, what if you are a big city person and prefer that hectic city style of living? If that’s your thing, we have some tips and suggestions for Latin American big city living.
 
#5- Johnny’s next Latin American “Expat Insider Seminar” will likely  take place in early January 2018. If you are interested in attending the upcoming week-long event just send an email to theexpatfiles@gmail.com for more info and details.
 
#6- Johnny’s new “Expat Essentials Course” is a blueprint for your “Plan B” and the best way kick-start your own plan before (or after) getting boots on the ground in Latin America. See the three video intros to the course now at www.ExpatPlanB.com 
 
#7- Check out my “The Expat Files” You Tube channel. See all the fun slides and photos that go along with each show. There are now more than 150 shows posted on my YouTube channel so have a look.
 
#8- Set up a one-on-one personal Phone/SKYPE consult with Johnny by downloading the “Plan B” consult/questionnaire at www.TheNewExpat.com
