I've worked in central America as well. And besides everything Koen said, something else will be to hire a trusted driver, recommended by the people you are staying with, so they know him and how to locate him too. if there is not driver, a taxi driver that is trust worthy is second option. You need somebody that know how to get to places and how to get out of places, and when. Local taxis in latin america can be unreliable, and some times they will be part of the crime network.
You don't need to hire the driver full time, just offer a generous compensation when you need him, if he makes more money driving you than going to work, he will call it a sick day. And you will enjoy a good time of very informative conversation during your commute.

Lizzy – Do you still need help with translators? I've been working on a project in Arabic for the last year – happy to help if you still need it!

Hi D-Word

We recently shot a batch of footage in Cairo, Egypt and I'm looking for an Egypt –> NYC traveler who can possibly hand deliver a drive for us; it's the only way to get a drive safely back. Anyone know anyone traveling there for production ... who might be able to help out?

Thank you!

Hey Beth,

Is the drive in your relation to the Women in the Arab Uprising project?
If so, I will be happy to put a word up for you on my FB profile.

Maybe people will be enthusiastic to help if that is the topic :)

Let me know!

Thank you so much. Yes, it is for THE TRIALS OF SPRING (formerly known as AWAKENING) – the project about women of the Arab uprisings. Let me think on this generous offer. I like to keep all of this on the down-low and haven't ever posted on FB. Let me run this idea by my team and get back to you?

Thank you!

In reply to Beth Levison's post on Tue 15 Jul 2014 :

Sure. I can post something like this:

"A fellow filmmaker in NYC needs a drive shipped from Cairo for a film related to the Arab Spring. etc etc..."

And if you don't want me to post an email address, I can have anyone interested write to me directly.

Keep in mind this is the Public Classifieds which does come up in Google searches. Just saying.

In reply to Erica Ginsberg's post on Wed 16 Jul 2014 : Blrg – Erica. Thanks. To keep this more private, which classifieds should I then use? I thought these were the only ones on D-Word (in my 10 years of using it)!

In reply to Niam Itani's post on Tue 15 Jul 2014 19:18 UTC : Let's do it! Thanks, Niam!

My daughter (having typical difficulty finding fulfilling, paid work in NYC) is contemplating a short-term move (6-12 months) to Mexico. She's looking for an organization doing local, community-based environmental/social justice work. She's also interested in urban planning. Ideally, the organization would house her so she can sustain herself (and of course, pay is not unwelcome). Does anyone have any ties to Mexico, any ideas, or friends who might know of something?

Bit longer term – 24 months – but Peace Corps has been in Mexico since 2004. Housing and a stipend are part of the deal, plus a readjustment allowance and (some) student loan forgiveness.

Helkin – great to see your showreel but please note that one of the few rules at The D-Word is not to post the same post in multiple topics – with the exception of Professional Classifieds and Public Classifieds – the way these boards work makes such duplicate posts superfluous as we all read all the topics. I've deleted the others.
