    Guadalajara or here at Lakeside?
  2. Berry Sellers At LCS

    The man in front of Guadalajara Pharmacy is there every day and his prices are good.
  3. Best place to meet Guadalajara Airport?

    Park in garage. Go inside and stand near Burger King & Starbucks. This is where people emerge after clearing customs.
  4. Wonderful new deli

    Stopped by yesterday. Delicious patty melt on real rye bread.
  5. Toilet paper flushing

    If houses are newer and have pvc pipes, then ok to flush paper. It is the older homes with clay pipes that can't flush paper.
  6. New residents driving tips

    Traveling east, at the traffic light at the Liberamento, the left land is for people turning left and the right lane is for people proceeding east. Do not proceed east from the left lane. Also do not exit Walmart by the AutoZone if you want to go west. Do that at the east exit.
