    These folks are just onthe edge of Hucksters - They are not selling realestate, but they did spend a yr and a half in Niclandia and have been flogging it in their videos and their blog.

    As far as I can tell they are in the EU now jumping across France and Spain.

    Looking at the other website and it looks like the cabbage truck is really rolling. Hope the smart folks in sjds are geared up to take their money.

    And Fuckle Chuck interviews Greg

    Greg owned Mel's fav spot on the beach for a while before 2018 killed that - Then he had something to do with that Social Bar for a while and then ran back up here.

    Looks like he Greg has found a niche on remote working.

    Hope to run into Greg when we are down there next - Fuckle chuck less so..

    Fuckle Chuck again - But this one is wrapped in a funny story.

    So the Tattoo guy here (Artist?) is a Canadian Iranian living in SJDS - SIL Herminia told Chilo to get some nose what ever that stuff is that you poke in your skin stuff.

    Chilo picked out the 3 or 4 bits and asked how much?

    Buddy said "Fifty"

    So Chilo hand him 50 pesso

    The look on Buddy's face was just precissious as he ment dollars.

    I realised this but Chilo did not and there was an awkward discussion between the two of them.

    Anyways - Fuckle Chuck gets a Tattoo ..

    A return to barbarism can't be just in the mind, you need the symbolism.

    While this one is not really real-estate it is Hucksters and Highwaymen. Recent tempest in a tea pot after this was released 2 days ago


    This is a Spanish Youtuber that is biking around the last 4 years

    He got hit up for a fine after trying to ask how long the traffic would be held up.

    THe cops got fired, and in the latest reports in the news the boss had her fiancée drop her as well..

    Part of me feels sorry for them, but more of me feels just deserts for milking the system - Nicaragua's problems only exist because the populous allows it..

    I've been pulled over at that exact spot before. The cops tried to give me a ticket for crossing the double yellow line, well they have one lane shut down there permanently and the traffic takes turns going the one lane over that bridge so its impossible not to cross over the lines. Its a scam. I argued with them and they didnt give up until I started taking pictures of them and then the "boss" pretended to call and eventually I got my documents back without a ticket.

    Yeah,, I've been there too. Hard to avoid it if you are on your way to CR. There is a little restaurant to the north with a deck over the barranca that the bridge crosses.

    Hard to know how to handle these situations. Paying the bribe is generally cheaper if you are no in a hurry and can afford the time to bargain. Taking a ticket usually means you have to retrieve your driver's license at some future point. If you can find a bank close by,, you can pay the ticket and then go back to the cop, show him the receipt and get your license. I did that once in Estelí at that traffic light where they expect the through traffic going south to get in the right "shoulder" of the road. That was a goldmine for them for a while. They seem to have lost interest.

    There never was any marking, signs, or other direction. You were just supposed to know it.

    I don't know how they are handling the licenses now. There was a rumor that they were all going to go to Managua. I retrieved one in Estelí but had to go back three times. I also retrieved my license once in Managua.

    It's far easier to just negotiate a modest bribe. When they say C$ 2000, you say 100.
    The transito guys are so poorly paid,, $300 to $350 /month.

    One of the SJDS realestate dealers show a plot of land using sentences like "all of the sellers are actually on the land but once yo own the land you can just make them move"

    Yea - Right - Good luck with that.

    " . . . just call the local government and have them removed . . "

    Does Natali have a number I can call ?

    Some of those buildings look pretty substantial.

    Looks like Fuckle Chuck has switched gears from "making money in Nicaragua" to "Helping others loose money in Nicaragua"...

    At least he is learning...

    Slowly...

    So,, $30-40K for a rad Pad while you wait for your $300K house to be built?
    And later you do an AirBnB with the radPad ?

    Did I miss something ?

    Gotta love the "all-seeing eye" motif, the classic illuminati symbol, in his tapestry.
