Descriptions- EXPAT FILES SHOW #745- SUN, MAR 25- (03-25-2018):

#1- TWENTY SOLID reasons why I DO NOT recommend Mexico for anything but the occasional all-inclusive sun and fun resort package deal

I know, I know, we’ve been down this twisted road before but today we’ll be going into much greater detail. This discussion’s for those of you who refuse to see the writing on the wall or haven’t been to the beautiful white sand Mexican beaches lately and haven’t seen the occasional decapitated head wash up on shore.

 #2- How do gringos and expats make good solid friends in the land of superficial gringo wanabees?

Expat wanabees and gonnabees want to know: if they live “off the tourist trail” and are in minimal contact with gringos it might be very difficult to find like-minded friends to bond and hang with. If you consider the fact that most gringos end up living in gated communities, that means they are probably surrounded by many superficial pin-headed gringo wanabees that can afford the gated community lifestyle (sound familiar?) Will they be your new friends? Hope not, but there must be some fun, educated, deep, thinkers out there somewhere, right? But how do you to find them?
