    Tacos al Pastor - where?

    A lot of talk but only one recommendation where to actually find them akin to the attached photo's and not just some packaged meat heated on a flat top and hoisted into a tortilla?
  3. What is Joel's location, Ajijic, Chapala, etc..Address, if available..TIA

    About Adoption in Mexico

    We watched a couple spend 3-4 years and 10's of thousands of dollars to adopt an young child from an orphanage near Joco..When it was all said and done they sold their home in Ajijic and moved back to their U.S.home . Their fear was that if they stayed here some long forgotten relative or lawyer would show up wanting $$$. The child is about to graduate from H.S. and all is well with everyone... A long process and very expensive...

    Flying Out and Driving Back

    Passports can be replaced if lost, expired, etc..So there would not be a linage of comings and goings with a new passport..

    Keeping US Cell Phone number

    Way too much info..The simple answer is that it depends who your USA cell phone provider is..If is ATT in the states then there is no problem with your friends just calling your USA # and it will ring here just as it does at home...Plus there is no charge to you or your friends from the states.."However when you initially call them from Mexico you will have to add 001, their area code, and their #..After your 1st connected call their modified #with the aforementioned prefixes will be remembered and you just go the their contact and the prefix and area code will already be in your phone book for them..Hopefully this answers your concerns..I do not know about other carriers..ie. Verizon, T-Mobile, Sprint, etc..

    Rustico Furniture wanted

    Go to Noe's shop in Riberas directly across the highway from the Telecable office...he is on the mountain side on the lateral..He has what you want or will build it to your spec's and for a very reasonable price..A great craftsman and wood worker..
  8. Reminds me of the commercial on TV where the bank is being robbed and all the customers on the floor are looking at the bank guard and want to know why he isn't doing anything, he then states that he is only a "security monitor"...sounds similar to a "Certified Dental Technician"...No way he should touch a patient other than to welcome them...

    how can I pre pay my utilities

    We pay Telmex and CFE and Telecable at least a year in advance..Been doing it for several years..Never an issue, you can use a U.S. credit card at Telmex and IZZi, CFE requires to load the bills in their machine outside the office..There is usually a man there to help you use the machine for a few Peso tip..To many we know have had the bank or realtor screw up their payments...
  11. I travel back and forth 6+ times / year..Even when getting a red light NEVER an issue with any scripts, vitamins, pills..You will hear various 2nd hand accounts of confiscations. ec..Not an issue..

    I want to move to Lake Chapala

    my thoughts are..come down for your spring visit and get somewhat familiar with the various areas, +'s and -'s..Then build a plan for your move in a few years with your dad..and you both settle in together..

    Anyone Lose a Car

    There is no- way without some type of transmitters in you auto's this will work. I think you are confusing your positioning with Google maps or something similar. No wonder we did not get an explanation!!

    Video Doorbell

    My guess is that they will last a couple of weeks unless the system is welded to a steel or iron structure...Very tempting to kids and Ladron's..
