  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. Computer parts

    Need an adapter part for a new computer. Where are people sourcing their computer parts since Benno's closed?
  6. 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.
  8. Where Do You Go For a BIG Salad??

    Two of my favs are the arracherra salad at Lake Taco and the same type of salad at Mario's.
  9. Mexican Drivers Licence

    When I got my license in April, they had just switched to touch screen tests and were in English. All 10 questions showed a sign and you had to identify what it meant. Not difficult except for the poor translation of some of the answers.
  10. More airport problems

    Just came in through the airport at 630 this morning. No protests around, everything went smoothly. But, what is with all the mosquitoes inside the airport? It was bad when we left a month ago and even worse this morning.
  11. Driving a Mexico Plated Car in USA

    We took our Jalisco plated car to San Diego for a month earlier this year. Other than the insurance, we didn't require any thing else. We did get a lot of comments from ex pat Mexicans in the area. Those led to some fun conversations.
  12. Bisbee, did you use this Costco service for you appliances? If so, would you mind describing your experience? TIA
  13. Hearing Aid Purchase USA vs Mexico

    Where in CA are you? Hubby just got a new pair of Phonak from West Coast Audiology in San Diego. The price was 3200 usd for the pair.
  14. Volaris changes baggage allowance

    Was this for the first checked bag? I haven't looked recently but when they started charging for all checked luggage, the first bag was $15 usd and the second one was $60 usd online. Sounds like that may have changed
  15. Acrid Smoke in upper Ajijic this morning?

    Some of the nursing homes in the area will do regular burns of the adult diapers. Nasty odor from that.
