The Expat Files Show # 758 – May 18, 2018

 

 

#1- A (not so) funny thing happened to me on the way to my Latin dentist’s office:

Today’s first boots on the ground story is a sad but telling one- on many levels. It’s the story of, love, life, luck (both bad and good) mixed in with a little larceny.

#2- Now for another amazing story of love and luck. This time direct from Venezuela.

#3- A bad omen- I used to get a steady trickle of emails from regular listeners in Venezuela but unfortunately over the last few months those emails have stopped cold.

#4- Latin “Diaper Arbitrage” explained. You can’t make this stuff up.

#5- What the hell’s happening in Nicaragua? Part 2: Nicaragua used to be such a nice, safe, happy place, a poor man’s Costa Rica… and also continuously rated a top 10 retirement spot by the likes of International living and a host of other expat blogheads who are supposedly in the know. What happened?
