    Poll: Re: Poll: Why are you in Nicaragua?

    Most people are successful because of the contexts of their culture as much as anything they did. Switch cultures, and the context is different. I know one long term expat here who has done well,...

    Poll: Re: Poll: Why are you in Nicaragua?

    Dude, I know that you hustled wannabes for money to print their books and that you had these lines for them to get them to open their wallets. Basically, one side of me feels that wannabes with egos...

    Poll: Re: Poll: Why are you in Nicaragua?

    If a man is foolish enough to live where only gringos and the poor live full time, he's got what he had coming. I know people in Jinotega who have read Spanish literature, have seen Latin American...

    Basically, the advantage of a commercial press is that it does lend a work an authenticity that self-publishing and vanity press publishing don't give. Distribution is better because the house lends...

    Poll: Re: Poll: Why are you in Nicaragua?

    Making money off the wannabes who'd be better off self-publishing an e-book or getting copies printed by a printer is better than using a vanity press. We're very happy that we kept my father out of...

    Poll: Re: Poll: Why are you in Nicaragua?

    The fate of most expat writers is to be second rate because most of us don't have any deep understanding of the local culture and think the exoticism will make up for not actually having any complex...

    Poll: Re: Poll: Why are you in Nicaragua?

    Um, no. Most lesbians tend to be way more cautious about who they fall in love with -- or the young chickies would be flirting more with the old gringas. Some straight women marry the young boys --...

    I don't think it's particularly dangerous for women travelers who aren't stupid. Watch what resident women do, and do that. If they're not out after dark, you don't want to be out after dark...

    Re: Google News - April 9, 2017

    What's really funny is how defensive the trust fund/remittance babies are about how what they're doing with extended tourism is perfectly legal because the Nicaraguans haven't clamped down yet. It's...
