I really don't like the word expat, although I've learned to tolerate it. And unfortunately I use the word expat all the time. I suspect this because, most of the expats do like the word, therefore, I am just mirroring what they want to hear. Yet that reminds me of a person that says they hate their mother or father. Something I don't mind hearing from a 13 year old, but don't want to hear from a 55 year old, time to come to grips with life. to be angry at a country, to feel really deep resentment towards the country, is to me relatively a person who's lost the plot. There are people that can understand the the story of life, and some that are always trying to figure it out, there is a plot, and it's relatively simple. thank you your friend Andy Lee Graham.
Andy are You an Expat, or Traveler? McDonalds Send Money
Ex pat. Presuming the person was patriot in the first place? Then leaving their home country for a better/safer/change?.
So glad your in Guat!
This talk was wonderful from you,thanks!.,.I laughed when your definition defined my travel ways.hermit,don,t want to get to close to people or places and the language of other country's ,do that for me.
I lived in Pana for 3 months,it was real third world then,(cops putting poison out to have less dogs around once a year) I mean it was different.The country is beautiful tho and living for 160 a month in Pana worked for me then.
As a traveler, it is hard for me to love, or not love a place, Pana is a place I am visiting. Nationalized, people want to join a country, not sure why, but people want to own labels instead of just sort of using label, they wish to become the label. There are way to many dogs in Pana, just listened to a pack of dogs. Sort of the same problem as cows in India Everyone worships cows, but glad when they disappear. I hear the pack of dogs again, too much fun. LOL -- Like a Chicken, a Rooster, or any annoyance. Normal life, but fun to have clear boundaries.
