Bruce Springsteen is on record declaring that if Trump wins, he’s moving to Australia and Tommy Lee has said he’s moving to Greece.

Tim grew up in Virginia but is now based in Guanajuato, Mexico and was kind enough to sit down for a 17-minute interview with me, answering my questions about living abroad, especially in Mexico since that’s the number one choice for Americans.
