  2. I did this a year ago. When they came to Chapala, the test was in Spanish and everyone was required to do a parallel parking test. When I went to Guadalajara with Luzma, the test was in poorly google translated English. It involved identifying the meaning of traffic signs. There was no driving test required if you could show a driving license from anywhere. (One person's was expired and that didn't matter). I don't remember what the cost was but Luzma was able to get the cost I paid in Chapala discounted because I was over 60.
  3. Authentic Tai Chi/Pushing Hands coming to Chapala

    What time and where does the LCS group meet?
  4. Window/glass cleaner without ammonia

    We use Sprayway glass cleaner. It comes in a blue and white metal can and is available at Walmart. Made in the USA so it is pricey.
  5. Skylight domes

    We need to replace a couple of skylight domes. Does anyone source them locally? Thanks
  6. Pase for tolls on Cuotas

    Do you know if they will still be doing recharges? We are using ours more with the new macrolibiermento.
  7. Plastic Ice cream buckets

    I have several of the 1 kg yogurt tubs with lids if they will help
  8. details Pancho and Superlake

    We were in there several days ago. The lady in front of us had a bag of bagels with a large tag that said 79 pesos but no bar code. The cashier punched in the code for bagels and the price came up as 109. She called over to the person sitting at the desk to ask the price and was told 109. That is what got entered. The whole thing was surreal including the fact that the lady didn't disagree.
  9. Fishing line needed

    Try the shop on the Ajijic plaza. It carries the darndest stuff. I don't know its name but it is on the south side.
  10. We have a Sony Bravia model KDL 32FA400 lightly used to sell.  We are asking 3200 pesos.  You pick it up.  We are in La Floresta.  Phone 766-0095

  11. ReSound hearing aids

    If you are looking at ReSound, considering adding the purchase of their Minimic. It's a small device that you can clip to the collar of your dining partner to make restaurant conversations possible. It can also attach to your tv to transmit the audio to the hearing aids. It allows the person with the h.a. to adjust to the necessary volume while the non h.a. person can set the volume at their comfort level. The last time I discussed h.a. with Pollo, he wasn't aware of the benefits of this accessory.
  12. Macro Libramiento

    On Sunday, the entrance to Tepic from Lopez Mateos was still blocked off. The entrance to the east bound lanes was blocked with one of the pieces moved to the side so it wasn't clear if it was open. They do have temporary signage up indicating it should be open.
  13. Computer parts

    Need an adapter part for a new computer. Where are people sourcing their computer parts since Benno's closed?
  14. Driiving directions and motels on the way

    The list that gave the routes and turns years ago would omit several of the newer bypasses. The new liberimento around San Luis Potosi and the new macrolibiermento between Chapala and the airport for example. In addition to Las Palmas in Matehuala, there is a new Hotel San Pedro Express at the San Pedro Parador. We also use the City Express Norte in Monterrey. Your choice of hotel will be impacted by whether or not you are traveling with pets. That is a big reason for Las Palmas.

    They are no longer taking dim sum reservations by email. You need to stop by to reserve and pay your deposit. You can call ahead to determine if there is seating available for a particular day.
