The Expat Files Shoe # 743 – March 18, 2018

 

 

#1- School shootings in Latin America:

Do they happen south of the border too? If so how frequently. Yes they do happen but the way they happen and the circumstances will certainly surprise you…

 #2- Owning guns and ammo in Latin America:

Yes you can. Here are the general rules, regs and requirements for gringos and expats. However there are 3 or 4 Latin countries with gun laws so strict it’s very difficult for anyone to jump through the hoops. Wouldn’t you know it, just like Chicago or Washington DC, the Latin countries with the strictest gun laws have the highest homicide rates.      

 #3- Some tips for “Off the Tourist Trail” expats involved in Latin/Gringo romances- with an emphasis on the case when neither party speaks the other’s language:

Note that just a few years back such relationships were extremely frustrating and near impossible to maintain, especially by phone. Wow have things changed!

 #4-Sometmes gringos and expats (especially the older ones) throw in the towel and say, “I give up. I’ve had it. I’m NOT learning Spanish. It’s too much trouble and I’m doing ok without it”. What then? That’s the subject of today’s “boots on the ground” story.
