The Expat Files SHow # 688 – September 1, 2017

 

 

#1- Yes, I occasionally get weird questions from listeners. For example, how about this one, “Johnny what do you know about “circumcisions” in Latin America?”   

#2- In many Latin countries, more kids are born in the home, delivered by a “comadrona”( midwife), than in regular hospitals. Therefore in the home or campo (the boonies) there are very few caesarean births. Although, just like in the states, caesarean births in hospitals are very common occurrence whether necessary or not (mostly not).

#3- The word on the street here in Latin America is that millions of Latinos in the states are very afraid of Trump and his scaled-up deportation efforts. The immediate effect is that stateside Latinos have dramatically stepped up their remissa dollar transfers back home. Today remissas are at all time highs. Why should that be? Because most of them who snuck in left tin-shack homes in crap-hole slums and figure if they do get shipped back they’ll want to have a much nicer place upon arrival. That’s why of late a large percentage of remissas are being diverted to home construction and improvement. Today’s boots-on-the- ground story is just such a testimonial.   

#4- Sign up for Johnny Mueller’s Latin American “Expat Insider” Seminar. The next one will take place on Sat, January 6th  through Thurs, January 11th  2018. Get on the earlybird list and get the info signup details by emailing Johnny at: theexpatfiles@gmail.com

#5- Johnny’s new “Expat Essentials Course” is a blueprint for your “Plan B” and the best way kick-start your plan before getting boots on the ground in Latin America. See the three video intros to the course now at www.ExpatPlanB.com
