Does anybody who follows this thread know how to make videos that can only be seen by a limited audience? I wouldn't mind making a few short videos about life as an established gringo expat in Latin America, however, I would only like it to be seen on here by members who I can trust (ie. a certain post count over a certain period of time)? I'm not doing anything wrong or illegal, I am just very particular about limiting my exposure to the world in general and I am not interested in clicks. I will be recognized right away by anyone familiar with me by the content of the videos, so I'd prefer to limit the exposure. Who knows what will be best in 5 years, but discretion will always be the best part of valour. However, I do think that if 20 or 30 guys watch the videos they might be entertained by them, and it might spark some genuine curiosity about life in Latin America.
This subforum https://www.rooshvforum.com/forums/private-forum.54/ seems to be hidden, at least, for unlogged visitors.
Or make an anonymous video with a blurred face and distorted voice?


Either way, I would like to hear your experience and advice from LATAM because I'm interested in that area.

I've been in MX a few months now and wanted to offer some insight. I'm a resident here and have been exploring various areas for suitability - whether as a a long-term place to live or more as part of a flag theory strategy.
  • I've been in smaller pueblas, mid-size cities, and the capital
  • The health secretary recently scrapped their traffic light system for monitoring the cerveza sickness. Masks not required in CDMX at least.
  • Most people still wear their masks indoors, even though many businesses no longer have the signs outside. Hand sanitizer is still found at the entrances of many businesses. Some private businesses are still enforcing the mask.
  • Many still wear masks outside on the street. This could partially be because of air pollution, but many have surgical or cloth masks which do nothing in this regard.
  • Many tourists wear the mask indoors as well - why visit if you're just going to remain muzzled in a new country?
  • Most people in the gym still wear masks too. This is the most appalling to me. My jiu jitsu gym has a more relaxed approach to this thankfully - I'd say 75% are maskless while training.
  • The people are generally better referred to as sheeple. Order followers, no backbone. For such a 'macho' country I see a bunch of weak-ass men.
  • Feminism has clearly crept into even the mid-sized cities. The women are still vastly better than the West, but this is a bit disheartening still. I've talked to some girls here about what they want and many want families though. Best bet will be in smaller areas and/or indigenous areas but good luck being accepted there as a Westerner. Still much better options in general here though - many more women that aren't obese, can cook, have long hair, dress feminine (I rarely see yoga pants outside, except on fat Western women). Many locals are close with their families as well - this is really important to me. They talk to their family members every day.
  • Cost of living is fantastic despite some higher prices as of late. If one doesn't eat out much it can be a very inexpensive place to live. Even $1,000-1,200 a month for a single guy in a mid-tier city I'd estimate.
All in all, I still see myself spending part of the year here. How much though I'm not sure - I'll need to see how the world unfolds in upcoming years.

Supply chains are much simpler here and there lots of food production, as well as good land with water sources. Many freedom-minded people have also been coming down here to build communities. I'm not trying to live on some off-grid hippy commune though - even if they're capitalists (not the commie types). But if one knows Spanish and has some community it can be a great place to be.

Do you mean heavy breathing, stinking, sweating guys are choking each other on the ground, but "sterile" with masks on?
Kimura safely with respirator? That's the most retarded thing I can imagine -))

You can do that on youtube if you don't mind setting up an account etc. You'd have to either make it unlisted and message those you trust on here / elsewhere with the link. Or for even more privacy make it a private video where those you'd want to view it would need an invite.

At this point in Latin America I'm safe in the confines of Honduras/Guatemala/South Mexico (Chiapas), but Venezuela as it opens to the public may be one last country for me to attempt to venture to. Its always been expensive to fly to, but I can imagine it being untainted by Chunky Charlie (the Beach (my movie) in reference to the modern backpacker/tourist scene), and perhaps an insane cost of living with US dollars.

Colombia is officially part of the Socialist club from August 7 onwards. Also mandatory vax coming from the closeted tranny lover and Atheist Gustavo Petro. Money printing, price controls, socialist agenda and confiscation of wealth is on its way.
Wow, Rodolfo Hernandez is 77 years old. Petro is ugly; sad news for everyone there.
