    Amazon Mexico Questions

    Most persons whom I know, either have it sent to their home or to a mailing service like Ishop, Sol Y Luna, or Handy Mail. Of course you need to have an account with the service you have the package sent to. Oh and up north, Amazon uses any one of several mailing services, not just one, which I would guess happens in Mexico too.

    Amazon Mexico Questions

    Hi there got another question. I ordered the electronic device and got it. But the driver sent me text message and then called me and then i gave him my address... so he called me and then i came down and signed the package and picked it up. I had asked him on the phone if they could drop it off at dhl and they said they can't. So does that mean anything i buy off amazon.mx cannot be sent to dhl for pickup? Example if i were to buy say a big item like a tv or monitor from amazon.mx, it would be same process? They call me and then ask me for address then give me a call when they are here and i come down and pick it up? I recall the guy was driving like a white van and there is a name of the company there but i forgot the name of it. What is the name of that company? I recalled it was a very popular name.

    Lakeside Stream TV

    Android TV boxes like Buzz are not sold to be used with "legal subscriptions". By the way, the lakeside stream that started this thread way back appears to have long gone.

    Rony comes from a country where everyone speaks at least three maybe four languages fluently and as a result, he had very little trouble learning yet another, Mexican Spanish fluently.

    Mexican Citizenship test

    My experience was heart warming. My first impression was that all of the employees were somewhat stoic. I tend to be gregarious and talk with everybody, even in lines in markets. I failed the reading comprehension part the first time; but felt that they really wanted me to pass. When I returned 2-1/2 weeks later to test again. Everybody in the department greeted me kindly. Both times Gerardo, the supervisor administered the test with Felipe at his side. This time I passed. As Gerardo was grading my test, Felipe held my hand. Before I left, I was hugged by every member of the department. When I walked out the door there was a crowd of about 100 people at the foot of the stairs leading to the door. I put my hands in the air with my fingers in a peace sign and stated "Soy Mexicana, Viva Mexico". The crowd erupted in applause, My advice is to find a great lawyer who they know, and show them that you really want this. Show them that you are a person that they will be proud to call paisano. My out of pocket cost was under $19000 pesos. My legal team made 4 trips to lakeside and one trip to CDMX on my behalf, guiding me at every step of the way and driving me to the interview both times. I count them as dear friends now.

    Would this work in Ajijic?

    the dog ordinance states a dog must have a collar or leash. It says nothing about anyone holding on to it. Yes the incoming regidors are past politicos including both degollado brothers. If you want something to happen, it looks like you, me, us will have to take an active interest in our own fates?

    What is this plant?

    One of the two garden groups published a photo-illustrated coffee table book, of local flora, some years back. I should have kept it when I saw it lying out at an open house. It was perfect. I have not been able to find it, or anyone involved, ever again.

    What is this plant?

    I have a first edition. The pictures are in the plant disease section--they're drawings of certain kinds of 'plagas' that afflict plants here. I don't believe there was ever an edition illustrated with photos of plants. Harry, do you know?

    Need neurologist

    My wife was diagnosed with a massive stroke, however after a review by Dr. Gabriel Varela, a neuro-surgeon @ cell 333 128 6347 24/7 , he personally took her in his car to the Puerta de Hierro Sur hospital, and after an MRI, found that she had a hematoma due to a leaking cerebral artery. He immediately operated and saved her life. Followed up with over 20 house calls. He operates the Stroke call center. He lives in Chapala, and has a beautiful office at where the old MOM's restraunt used to be near clinica Maskaras.

    What is holistic ear cleaning? Not candling, I hope. By the way, whoever said aging doesn't bring hearing loss... seriously?

    Need neurologist

    That's a tough one Sandrita - Dr. Miguel is one the best, treating the type of neurological issues you describe. Why don't you phone or email him to ask if he has a colleague. He recently moved here from Mexico City (CDMX), and I guess what has happened is that he is picking up on a tremendous backlog. As I have mentioned before, most Neurologists of this calibre enter lucrative research positions, and do not treat individual patients. Mommas, - let your babies to grow up to be Neurologists!

    Transitos in La Canacinta?

    That article, though, was about cops, not transitos. As far as this spot check, these are not Chapala transitos; these are Jalisco (state) agents, and they do have the right to issue tickets. El Gordo may have been "helping out" to see about getting his little bite here and there, but unless something mystical took place, he ain't no Jalisco Semov. I drove by again, papers all out and ready to be flagged down, and El Gordo was not in sight. The two agents seemed happy to be reviewing one vehicle at a time. My own copies of Spencer's law briefs show that temporale vehicles are not subject to smog checks, but it is very sketchy. From what I understand from Dale's column in the paper this week, there is an assumption that six months is the time period, but that really refers to the length of the T.I.P., and once you have temporale papers, the time extends to the end of your temporale, or the beginning of your permanente. I know this for a fact.

    Transitos in La Canacinta?

    Transitos in La Canacinta?

    The answer is that you do not go to jail in the first place. What the transitos are doing is against both State and Federal laws. Exercise your rights and leave them standing at the side of the road I hope you read Spenser's document. If you did not you are making very misinformed comments. If you read the document you will understand my comments. After 10 years i have no fear of the transitos. If they stop me for a reason such as speeding I have no problem. If they stop me to check documents I say no and leave. Carry a copy of Spenser's document in the car and show them you know the law

    Need neurologist

    After complaining to my doctor that my walking balance was off she sent me to the neurologist, Dr. Miguel Valle at Quality Care who sent mee to Guad for an MRI. The results were that I had had a number of mini strokes and that was the reason for the walking issues. He put me on some meds and prescribed physical therapy. The long story is that Í cannot get an appointment with him until sometime in December Does anyone have a good personal experience with a good neurologist? If you want please you can PM me. Muhas gracias.
