    Now I've Seen it All...........

    Rony, I don't know the state of things in Col. Americana in Guadalajara, but I do know the state of things in Col. Condesa in Mexico City. I lived for eight years in the heart of that colonia and was forced to move to a different neighborhood less than a year ago, due to the Sept. 19, 2017 earthquake. At no time did I ever see a "huge sign" "dogs welcome" on any restaurant. I know ONE restaurant in la Condesa that offers water bowls for thirsty dogs, on its patio. The restaurant, La Casa de la Yeya on Calle Culiacán near Av. Amsterdam, requires that all dogs be on leashes and that the leashes be hooked to large hooks on one long wall, far from diners but within sight of their owners. Dogs are not permitted into the outdoor patio dining area--and are also never permitted into the inside dining area. Could you give me restaurant names/addresses where you have seen those "huge signs", so that I can go look for myself? I'm often in la Condesa and it would be no trouble for me.

    What is interesting is that the fact that there is a law on the matter is being ignored and the issue is being debated in this thread as though there were no law at all and it is simply a personal choice. More than one poster has ridiculed the idea of anyone objecting to dogs being anywhere and everywhere. (Restaurants want that profitable gringo patronage, so they put up with the "entitled" ones.) True allergies with very nasty symptoms (very real to those who suffer from them) are being compared to perfume and aftershave objections. What does this say about the discussion/argument? Plenty, in fact. The many times this has been hashed and re-hashed on this board have gone .....nowhere at all. Maybe we should return to discussing politics, or something.

    A few years ago I went cheap and took a combi back from Bucerias to Puerto Vallarta. A women got in at a stop with a huge amount of cheap smelling perfume and my stomache reacted with heaves and extreme nausea I had to hold back the vomit untill the next stop where I got out and caught a cab. This lady is a jerk!

    Los 5 Potrillos under New Management!

    This is great news. Cinco Potrillios was always a mandatory meal stop with incoming visitors when it was good, followed by a visit to the murals on the plaza and in the church.
  10. Yes it is one of the goals. Because the change in zoning was done under the radar and under the table, this will be the primary legal challenge. The second one is to lower the ' cota ' or height from sea level back to the original 1600 meters. It was changed, without input from the community,, to 1800 meters in order to build up to the top. Not only is this harmful to the community in terms of sercive, but it is also dangerous because of landslides this high up. GREED

    No it's not but the conversation drifted into allergies. The law about dogs in restaurants is only concerned with food hygiene not about allergies. Still, a little consideration goes a long way when dealing with heavy application of both perfume and aftershave. On an airplane it's even worse. And back to our regularly scheduled disagreement...

    EDIT: Wrong association. (I believe there is a FaceBook page with a Floresta Association, but with the phones and Internet down again in Riberas, I can't get to it.)
  14. Unfortunately the Chapala government is in a bad legal spot regarding building permits unless the zoning change done by the previous administration is reversed. IMO that should be the goal here.

    I wasn't aware that wearing strong perfumes in restaurants was illegal.
  17. While in many European countries thousands, if not millions of people, are dying in the streets of all kinds of diseases, caused by dogs in restaurants and on trains there, I also have to assume that you dont eat at your houses, with your dogs living there. And let us not even mention, (talking about the law) dozens of restaurants in colonia Americana in Guadalajara and La Condesa in DF, with huge signs "dogs welcome " and even dog food bowls. They must have an ambulance ready to take sick customers to the hospital .... You are over focussing on the wrong enemy, when eating out. During the night all kinds of "wildlife" turn empty restaurants into a feast and leave body secrements all over the place, but oh no.....there is a little dog under the table. You "think" you have seen it all" ..... It is a lot worse, mein Schatz. Rony
  18. Been trying to think of someone and just recall that Pancho's uncle who now runs SuperLake lives in La Floresta.
  19. The Chimalli group, who is leading the efforts to keep our hills green and without large developments, had a meeting scheduled with Moy Anaya, the new President in Chapala, for Wednesday, 21 November. The meeting was to have Moy on the record that he would defend our hills and not give out building permits for these green areas. Yesterday, the meeting was abruptly cancelled, with no offer of re-scheduling. There is a meeting with an environmental lawyer from Mexico City today. He will advise the Chimalli group on how to proceed to block any building in these zones. Stay tuned for further information.
  20. I am amazed that people continue to be amazed that human conversation drifts and shifts as humans talk, whenever and wherever they talk. You’d almost think it was a natural part of human communication.

  22. Breaking news. https://www.nytimes.com/2018/11/20/us/judge-denies-trump-asylum-policy.html LOS ANGELES — A federal judge on Monday ordered the Trump administration to resume accepting asylum claims from migrants no matter where or how they entered the United States, dealing at least a temporary setback to the president’s attempt to clamp down on a huge wave of Central Americans crossing the border. Judge Jon S. Tigar of the United States District Court in San Francisco issued a temporary restraining order that blocks the government from carrying out a new rule that denies protections to people who enter the country illegally. The order, which suspends the rule until the case is decided by the court, applies nationally.

    I am amazed that some people were able to get from an anxious woman getting a dental procedure (we have no idea how serious or stressful) who brought her dog (maybe trained service dog - maybe just a great dog) to calm her to an entitled woman getting her teeth cleaned. How about a little compassion instead? Then we went to the semi-annual whine about dogs in restaurants. Totally off topic. I don't take my dogs to restaurants but it isn't one of my serious concerns. I fully understand allergies and can appreciate that people would rather not be subjected to allergy producing agents. I am allergic to many strong perfumes but I don't demand that other women stop wearing them.
  25. That absurd little exercise just cost the US taxpayers 220 million dollars.
  26. Hi, if you are looking for a house/pet sitter and the couple you have sent message doesn't answer you, I am available from 26 Dec to 8 Jan. Let me know in a PM. Thank you, A.
