    Emissions place in Chapala

    http://theguadalajarareporter.net/index.php/news/news/regional/51191-statewide-emissions-testing-program-restarts-with-minor-changes Found a post from Intercasa on this webboard (emphasis added) Posted April 24, 2016 Technically law does require it as law says that vehicles in Jalisco for more than 6 months must follow rules. If you click on the location it tells you if they have sufficient or a few holograms left - https://verificacionvehicular.jalisco.gob.mx/talleres-acreditados

    Would this work in Ajijic?

    Yes, there is a lot to be said for a car-free downtown, but in this particular situation, there are a few problems, to wit: Not feasible to go underground in an area with this water table and not likely to go around the periphery because of the mountains. Plus, there's the clobberstones, which make walking a risk rather than a pleasure. Alas.😪

    In Madrid centro a 10 lane freeway is underground all the way to the suburbs more than 10 klm.s long. Above on the surface the original antique streets and buildings are undisturbed and a gorgeous setting. The bus and a couple train stations are underground and the surounding areas on the surface are undisturbed except where the 100+ year old small train stations were built of stone and are there restored, one inside is a indoor botanical garden - beautiful to see, and nice to walk around and tableside restuarants etc.. Plaza del Sol the plaza at the exact center of the city has the large multi line subway stop, a train station and underground parking underground and it is visible above in the plaza only by elevators and stairs and escalators exits and entrances but down below it is huge. Social Democracy at work.

    Would this work in Ajijic?

    One huge difference is the paving of the streets and sidewalks in the video - they are level and actually walkable in safety without having to watch every step one takes. Additionally the city depicted had the luxury of being able in put in underground parking spaces. This area has neither the funds nor the locations for such places. Having said all that, more pedestrian only areas would be nice.

    SMOKE HOUSE

    Had occasion to order from The SmokeHouse via Food Delivery Services. Keeping in mind that nothing is going to be the same when delivered in a styro box, as compared to fresh off the grille/smoker, my thoughts: I ordered the rib/brisket combo, to get a taste of both. Two sides come with each order. I also got BBQ Wings (not hot, because I wanted to check the basic cook). It's $199 for the combo, and $95 for the wings. There was enough meat to justify the combo price. The ribs were a bit over-cooked, but easy to remove from the bone, and the homemade sauce was tasty. Not an expert in sauces, but I believe it is a Texas style, while the wings were more Kansas City (sweeter). Nice to see two different sauces instead of just one covering everything. Adelita's ribs are better cooked and juicier, but I never liked their sauce (which tastes like bottled, and if it isn't, then they are making a huge mistake cooking their own). The brisket was neither good or bad, just "there". But I come from a place where smoked meat/corned beef/pastrami/brisket is an art form, so it's hard not to be prejudiced. Again, it would have been better fresh off the heat, considering an abundance of marble that would have made it juicier. Chicken wings were excellent, and very meaty, if a tad over-cooked.. 8 wings for $95; I guess that's normal these days? My sides were slaw and rings; slaw was not of any "style" I could tell, but was okay. Certainly not limp or over-vinegared. And the rings were fine. Delivery from Lakeside Food was amazingly fast, knowing the restaurant is on the west side of town and I am in Riberas: 45 minutes from the time I called. Here's a link to the menu, and the new Delivery Website: http://food.sslakeside.com/item/smoke-house/

    Question from a Newbie Visitor

    My daughter who travels constantly internationally says to suspend water drinking and salad eating for short trips of a week or so. Instead drink, tea or coffee or lemony type drinks where you see the lime/lemon squeezed into the glass with a shot of vodka in them that she gets from her flask because she travels to muslim countries regularly. In some countries even bottled water is still risky. Only consume meat that has been well cooked and nothing like a casserole that has many handlers even in preparation - cooked vegetables alone are the best choice. . The simpler you keep your food the less risk. Of course she is not on vacation and wanting to enjoy her food.

    True. Any review that doesn't get specific about what was done right or done wrong is worthless. When choosing, it helps to have the benefit of useful reviews before trying a new place.

    Question from a Newbie Visitor

    Here are a few of the restaurants where I've eaten, enjoyed the food and haven't had stomach problems afterwards. Most of them have a variety of menu choices and reasonable prices. These are all close in between Ajijic and San Antonio, to the East. On the main road: (San Antonio)Panino's: popular with expats. Lunch. Open weekdays. (Ajijic) Gosha's: breakfast, lunch and dinner. Closed Tuesdays. Dona Lola: breakfast and lunch.( Good Mexican food). Downtown Ajijic: Tango. lunch and dinner. On the Ajijic plaza: El Jardin: breakfast, lunch and dinner. Also on the Plaza: an ice cream place. In the main shopping mall food court: Trip's, for an "American burger" and a shake. Enjoy!

    Physio Therapy Services

    Like Dave0415 said above, I did the math. In my case the physical therapy is on the back end of the private medical insurance claim. I had two expensive surgeries in a Guadalajara hospital. Plus consults beforehand, during, and after with surgeon, plus post-surgical medicine......and then the physical therapy began, which I've now been doing for a year. After trying lots of out-of-pocket alternatives before turning to surgery, I knew the route I was taking and knew I'd clear the deductible easily. I began collecting FACTURAS for every single thing once I resigned myself to surgery.

    Question from a Newbie Visitor

    Yes, you may experience stomach/gastro upset your first few days. (I advise visitors to brush their teeth with the tapwater, but don't drink it, and rinse with bottled water.) But, when you head back north, you will also experience a reaction to water you once were used to.

    ^ this I'm always looking for facts, not emotional reviews like "my dinner was completely ruined"/"awful and nothing less" etc. They're usually too subjective, full of whining or pre-paid by other companies. I'd say, it's a hard job to find truly objective reviews. But sometimes it's even funny. When it comes to choosing, I rely on my own experience.

    Ocelo sponges

    Then I'd even more curious: if no fancy colours, why are they better than others? This image is from the 3M page about Ocelo sponges.
