An American expatriate working as a manager of a newsmagazine, Whitt finds himself surrounded by compelling, oftentimes dangerous individuals with little or no interest in anything other than obtaining political achievement and monetary gain. In defense of his company and himself, Whitt finds himself in many a compromising, even dangerous, position, upholding loyalty to his native United States of America, his colleagues, and himself. Experience firsthand the Mexico City massacre of hundreds of students, a bloodless coup of the president of a sovereign Latin American nation, negotiations with Marxist ideologues, power-driven dictators, and kidnapping terrorists entrenched in criminal operations. Enter the social scene as Whitt solidifies friendships, embraces cultural norms, and finds time to explore the exciting social scene Latin America has to offer. Readers will run the gamut of emotions as the true-life situations of Robert Ampudia Whitt III are brought to light in Expat.

The true expat feels a genuine sense of being in the right place and not just where he happens to be, based upon an accident of birth. Each day is an adventure, a new chapter to be read, a lifestyle to be tasted and savoured. The true expat also quickly realises that it is not about what he can get from his adopted country, but what he can give back in return. This book is a follow up to two earlier books for expats: 'Letters from the Atlantic' and 'Living the Dream', which are based upon my weekly 'Letters from the Atlantic' that are published in a number of magazines and newspapers across the world. Each 'Letter' is intended to be a light-hearted account and a reflection of my own life as an expat over a period of one year. Some may make readers laugh, whilst others may make readers cry in despair or even anger, yet others are meant to be a gentle prod in what I have found to be the right direction for me. This is not a 'Do it yourself guide' either, but a few thoughts on the best way to survive in a country that is your choice and not merely an accident of birth.

From how to organise an overseas move to what to do in the event of an earthquake, the Expat Partner's Survival Guide is a light-hearted yet in-depth guide for anyone accompanying their partner on an overseas assignment. In our increasingly globalised society, more and more people are moving to another country to work 0́3 and many of these people are taking their partners and families with them. What does it feel like to sit at home alone in a strange country on the first day your partner leaves for work? How easy is it to find the right school for your child 0́3 and what happens if your child hates it there? Where exactly are you going to track down all the ingredients needed for tonight's dinner? And what happens when it all goes very, very wrong? This authoritative guide draws on the expert advice of more than 70 expat partners who have been there, done that and survived to tell their tales. The experts include author Clara Wiggins, who spent her childhood as a 'trailing daughter' accompanying her diplomat parents on various exotic postings including the Philippines and Venezuela. She later saw life from the other side, when was posted to Jamaica and then took her young family on her husband's postings to Islamabad and St Lucia. She is currently preparing for another move, to South Africa.

Chiggers in My Tea

'Chiggers in my Tea' is written as an Expat's Survival Guide. The British Expat is himself an ancient export to be found all around the world. He is regarded by 'normal' people as the 'odd-ball, who will probably settle down in the end' and, although quite happy in his voluntary exile and earning good money, does dream of 'Home'; which he probably misses deeply.So, as the 'resident' Englishman returns home to a cosy fire, perhaps he will spare a thought for the Expat sitting in his cement-clad, breeze-block house, the air-conditioning 'wall-banger' whining incessantly, as he watches yet another badly-recorded video or muses on his chimerical lot.Written in 1996 by an Expat (so he knew what he was talking about), here is a collection of 'Poems, Themes and Advice' that will help the Traveller make the most of his twilight existence. By following the essence of what is contained here, the Expat, yes - even today's Expat - will perhaps find life more interesting and certainly more enjoyable. He may have access to the Internet, on-line films, boogie-box entertainment systems, and these are all well and good; but in order to make his mark within the social whirl he may need a little more. It is this 'extra ingredient' that this book seeks to provide. It is eclectic in its content but all the more fun for that; and 'to have fun' is of paramount importance in the quest for survival out there.Updated in 2017, the collection now includes the (soon to be famous) 'Mazaudet International Cross-country Kitchen Cook-book' - or 'Food to Share with Dogs'; and jolly good it is too.

An Expat's Life, Luxembourg & The White Rose is a refreshing and forthright take on the Englishman Abroad genre. Reading David Robinson's relaxed prose is like sitting down for a drink or two with the author in the pub of the title. Indeed, as the tome progresses, so the reader warms to Robinson's down-to-earth character. The author's very personal view of an expat's life in Luxembourg is not overbearing, and even the most informed reader will learn something new about the history of the Grand Duchy, its bureaucracy and social conventions and attitudes. The book is brimful with little snippets of useful information and trivia for those unfamiliar with the country, and Robinson's anecdotes will spark empathy with readers who live, or have lived, in Luxembourg. -Duncan Roberts, editor of 352 Magazine.

Scatterlings a Tapestry of Afri Expat Tales

Moving country remains the hugest thing weve ever experienced/ accomplished/ drowned in. Its an act of seemingly utter insanity, which negates all ones most primal connections to the cosmos. I find myself quoting Keats more often, Happiness is sharpened by its antithetical elements. Experiencing a new chapter of life is life-altering and isnt given enough credence. Each day we are grateful to taste a figuratively different menu, yet simultaneously we miss the staple diet stemming from our roots. I recall emailing a psychologist colleague of mine a few months after my arrival here, Am I experiencing a schism of the self? I asked. She replied, No, just re-inventing the self. I kept that pinned on my notice board at work for the first year to reflect on. _______________________________________________________________ Scatterlings Synopsis The book kicks off with the author's innocent and carefree childhood growing up on a farm in South Africa, my awakening (conscientising into an awareness that all is not right, being born into an apartheid era), life in SA and the epiphany to immigrate to NZ. The chapter Bouncing off Planet Africa' encompasses the grieving and healing process of migration. This section should be extremely beneficial to all migrants as part of the adaptation and acculturisaton process. The Scatterling tapestry chapters follow with migrants stories of their passion, pain, love - and hate - of Africa. For this section a remarkable cross section of stories; people of various cultural backgrounds and groups from Southern Africa including: cross cultural marriages; gay marriages; the lobola story between a Zulu woman and an American man; people who were marginalised and affected by apartheid, or survived the war in Zimbabwe, etc., plus Afri-expat tales from places such as Peru, USA, Canada, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Kenya, Zimbabwe, UK, Oz and NZ have been gathered and incorporated. There is a section with contributions, including a Somali Refugee, a rootless African American (due to slavery) and people of colour uprooted in South Africa due to the apartheid areas act. Expats talk about hurdles and obstacles regarding migration, and about the wonderful sense of freedom from the shackles of apartheid and from fear, violence and criminality. They also offer some tips and advice to wannabes, while others hanker for home so much and return to face the challenges of a violent land. The contributors echo the same parallel threads, yet different and unique, each through their own personal lens. A short chapter offers children the opportunity to share their stories in Out the Mouths of Babes, which is both insightful and humorous. An historical/political time line follows from Khoi Khoi to current with articles and information, demographics and some statistics covering the establishment of humanity in the ancient continent; the conflicts, the horrors of apartheid and current exasperation due to ongoing heinous crime, stress, corruption and structural disintegration, juxtaposed against optimism and hope. Articles (all with the authors blessings) are included by well know South African writers, politicians, projectionists and figure heads, the likes of Helen Zille, Clem Sunter, Max du Preez and several young emerging African columnists the likes of Mabaso, Mtimkulu and Shuudi.) There is a section on migrants poetry, followed by Southern African recipes and food tales as immigrants identify with food as part of the cultural adaptation and period of grieving. A short existential epilogue concludes the book.

Beyond Borders is a multidisciplinary collection of essays with a focus on contemporary issues in Caribbean cultural studies. Culture and cultural identification are without a doubt highly charged political Goliaths with local and global ramifications. This is one of the reasons for the virtual boom the discipline has enjoyed, and the Caribbean is no exception. As a result, there is a growing demand for information in the field for both research and teaching purposes. The essays in this collection provide such a resource. They explore cross-cultural themes and issues across a range of disciplines that include literature, language, education, history and popular culture. They will interest a broad cross-section of regional and international readers, including a wide range of scholars, professional teachers, students and members of the general public wishing to understand the complex dynamics of Caribbean culture.The issues of cultural survival and negotiation with which most of these essays deal, serve to foreground a history of domination, resistance and marvellous transformations within and beyond the borders of this archipelago. It is no longer possible to pass culture off as simply a matter of commonalities, interests and values, as if politics and power were innocent of influencing what gets defined and consumed as culture. Beyond Borders: Cross-culturalism and the Caribbean Canon offers a forum for contemporary debates on Caribbean culture in its ongoing process of evolution.

People will always have dreams and passions, for that is the true essence of the human condition. For some, this may mean a larger home, a new car, or climbing a mountain. For many others, like myself, it is the dream of a new life, new experiences, new cultures, the opportunity to experience, taste and smell the excitement in a place that is of our own choosing and not merely based upon an accident of birth. For many, the dreams will be of a less stressful life, an opportunity to be challenged by new experiences, new and exciting work opportunities, a place where there is a high quality of life in which a young family may grow. For others, it may be the dream of a carefree, long, happy and healthy retirement, but for all it is an 'Escape to the Sun'. 'Escape to the Sun' is a further addition to the popular 'Twitters from the Atlantic' series, which also includes 'Living the Dream', 'Expat Survival', 'Message in a Bottle', 'Twitters from the Atlantic' and 'Letters from the Atlantic'.

Living in the city of Guanajuato is nothing like living the Gringo Landias or Gringo Gulches of San Miguel de Allende or Puerto Vallarta. No information exists in book form to guide the potential expat to a new life in central Mexico. Expatriating to Guanajuato is different and unique. Unlike San Miguel de Allende or Puerto Vallarta, there is not a huge gringo community here that acts as a support buffer for "newbies." Nor is English as widely spoken as it is in other areas where expats live. Doug and Cindi Bower spell out the differences between living in Guanajuato and living in other areas where expats have traditionally congregated. They offer a survival manual for the potential expat.

In addition, The American World Citizen is the first book on this subject to address two timely and important issues facing today's American expatriate: · How to be an American while living and working abroad.
