Why Venezuela is not a good play for investing time or money. Maybe not even the time and effort to read this.
Three brief anecdotes illustrate the adjustment to monochronic time orientation in Gringolandia (as opposed to polychronic in Latin America).
Explaining my typical gringo transformation from seeing “Latino” as a race, which it’s not, to a culture. Inspired by a poem by Noel Quiñones.
A few less-than-ringing endorsements from recent visitors to Cuba, followed by why I’d still like to go (before it’s ruined).
Describing the two extremes when it comes to gringo expats and Latin music, from the Idiot Abroad who doesn’t like anything to the Full Retard who is trying too hard to be liked.
Latin America must show it is not impotent in the face of dictatorship in Venezuela. It’s time for South America to clean up its own back yard!
