    Carretera trivia ?

    Anybody know when the carretera was built between Chapala & Ajijic ,enabling motor vehicle to make the trip? And/or when it was first paved?
  4. Folks are at the Ranch 10-12:30 ...or I could arrange for Izzy to visit your friend
  5. Another small female at the Ranch is Kila.....picture on the website http://www.lakesidespayandneutercenter.com/ranchdogs.html
  6. “Izzy” might be perfect. After being fostered and some training she’s now at the Ranch . She’s sweet, very lovable and tranquil IZZY Female
  7. There’s no ‘previous owner’ . Tony is still the owner of the property he’s only leased the venue to Funky Finn’s to run a restaurant/bar. yes it was previously the modest private home of Tony and his wife (the deceased woman referenced) and yes ironically they were very well-known locally for their efforts to combat what they viewed as noise pollution from the local church (the daily recitation of the Rosary broadcast on loudspeakers)
  8. Why not stop by & at least try talking to them first? A woman named Catherine , Canadian I believe, ‘owns’ Funky Finns (she has leased the venue from the owner of the property, Tony) and is usually on site. Might be futile but you can always file a complaint if no improvement. Nice building and obviously a ton of money invested but Craziest location ever to put such a place. I live several blocks away - can’t imagine how it must be for immediate neighbors.
  9. See Spencer -or get a different maid

    Had any one Way airline ticket problems recently?

    Very strange..I can only guess that maybe his age (30) & traveling solo was a factor.
  11. Has anyone had a problem recently entering or leaving Mexico on a one-way ticket with a US tourist visa? I’ve done this many many times myself but my son was stopped by Volaris in Hartford 2weeks ago about his one-way ticket entering Mexico & had to produce proof he had a purchased ticket exiting Mexico.(He was able to show his ticket on his phone leaving for China in 10days. Again upon departure ,Aeromexico at Guad stopped him because his ticket to China was one-way. They insisted on proof he had a purchased ticket leaving China. He had none since his stay is indefinite. He was forced to book a flight exiting China so there at the check - in desk he used his phone and credit card t to purchase a random flight from China to Tokyo . With that proof of a ticket they let him through. (Hopefully he’lll be able to cancel that Tokyo flight ) something new ? Different airline, different airports insisted tourist traveler can’t enter a country without proof of an exiting ticket.

    Monarch Butterflies

    Easiest first trip is through a tour agency who will prepurchase your bus tickets & book your hotel reservations. Your driver to the Reserve is through the hotel. Some things I learned from my visits: Morelia is about 4hrs from Guad and the butterfly reserve is a long drive from Morelia. - about 3 hrs ypur hotel provided driver from Morelia is just a driver .though with any luck he will be knowledgeable about the area & share some interesting information along the way. Only the Reserve -provided guides are allowed to lead visitors inside the park The high- altitude walk to the top is very very steep , about 1 1/2 hrs to the top or you can pay to go up on horseback) do NOT go on a week-end ! visitors can be shoulder-to-shoulder & your time at the top actually observing the butterflies will be limited (I think the signs said 15 minutes?) Pack some food & drinks for the 6 hrs of driving ....not much available . I’d suggest a collapsible zipper cooler with ice packs for the car) Seeing the butterflies is an amazing experience !!
  13. Posting specifics on the Wall of Shame Facebook page would be a real service to the community.
