    Free second landline?

    Help.....cant find an English speaking Trelmex operator to discuss my last Chapala bill where I was charged for all my calls to the USA. I given up on the 800 Telmex and now want to call the Ajijic Telmex since the key people there speak English. Could you give me the office Phone numbers please or any of the individuals Cell #'s. Im back in the states but will call them. My bill is now over due too so sooner the better.
  3. My Alaskan friends are looking for a quality cocktail in the Chapala Lakeside area......suggestions....
  4. Anyone know when Chapala Municipo will be holding its Carnaval 2018? I dont think it necesarily follows traditional schedules in Chapala. I want to avoid Chapala at that time and Im trying to put my travel plans together. Its just out of control band noise at that time. The two worst offenders are Carnaval and Expo.
  5. Anyone know where I can get real vanilla in the bottle. Last minute gift!
  6. I'm finally grounded after 10 days of loud music torture here in Chapala. Expo has ended and the 8-12 hours of music from 4pm til 4am or thereabouts is over. This is the same technique the CIA uses to drive people crazy like Panamas Noriega or Wacos David Koresh! Entertainment for 100 or so people that disturbs and denies a decent night sleep to thousands. The noise sweeps over the entire Plaza de Toros Barrio and up the hills. Two or three tuba bands, then a headliner that comes on 11pm or later, usually later. Noise til 2 or 3 AM, then a few drunks left in the stands to mouth off or some kid practicing being a disc jockey. It's torture. Doesn't the neighbors of the Chapala bull ring do enough for the community? We host the Monday Tianguis for petes sake! Thrn too Chapala hosts endless weekend tourist activities, we are here for your holidays too. And yet for the diversion of a few the many are denied sleep or comfortable use of their homes!...? How much productivity is lost to nights of just a few hours sleep.? Its not just the gringo who is upset, my Mexican neighbors have had enough too. And I know those who live by the Park Christiana feel the same; thousands tortured for the diversion of a small number of out of towners who come so late to the events no local merchants prosper. Who really profits? An out of town promoters takes control of the lives of large segments of the local population, tortures them for his profit. Why do we put up with that? I know Ajijic suffers from the same problems. Somehow we have to push back against the forces that would turn all of Lakeside into some destination tourist zone with complete contempt for those who are residents here. Can something be done to regulate or need this torture!? Can we at least stop all activity at midnight!? Limit the number of continous days? Set limits on music volume.!? Lakeside is first and foremost residential, economically and culturally so let's respect the people who live here!
  7. Ok just a few days til the May 5 deadline....but where's the office.?

    Water Taxi

    Thanks for the input, the receding lake levels and dock issues preclude I think this kind of service unless it was hovercraft. But aren'the they terribly noisy?
  12. That image is an oil on wood painting called Chapala Boats that I've recently completed here in Chapala, which I was showing since there was some question about my skill set or experience. There are more images at billyking.com including mural images. Here's a picture of my studio in Chapala. I'm not getting any actual paint donations and time is running out for this season. Any suggestions?

    Water Taxi

    Has there ever been a water Taxi service between chapala and Ajijic? Would it make economic sense to have such a service? Pier to Pier service would certainly take the increased hassle of going from one to the other.

    Toilet not fully flushing

    Thanks everyone. We've created a great reference thread on this issue. Through vigorous plunging I got the line free, yes there was blockage. To celebrate I bought one of those blue disks to "clean" the toilet bowl with each flush.
