#1- Encountering scary, smart Expats: Odds are, visiting Latin America, you’ll discover the average Expat gringo by no means “average” at all. Just the fact that an American is on board with a “Plan B” means he/she a thinking person and in a class by himself. However, the same can’t be said about the majority of NGO “do-gooders” that come to Latin America in organized hive-like groups. You’ll encounter many zombiefied NGO mental lightweights- mainly off the tourist trail. You’ll recognize...
