I am reminded of a friend who always claimed he planned to return to Sri Lanka when he retired and live like a king. Of course the problem with Tamil Tigers have just been resolved. And you probably have to worry about being kidnapped.

I'm just amazed by armed guards in front of office buildings in Mexico, hotels with guards in the lobby and parking lots with steel gates in Columbia, and stories of people living in walled complexes in Brazil with paid full time security guards.

Yes, you can afford to hire servants and live very nicely inexpensively. But you make an easy target for the bad guys.

Don't forget to fund your security requirements.
