  2. Let me start with a confession. I'm not living in Ajijic any more. I now live in Queretaro. But I have made a few trips back since moving and this site has been a good way for me to quietly asses any issues like traffic that are going on. But in this case, I feel I need to speak out because I would feel awful if I didn't and someone was made for the worse for it. Three months ago I had COVID. I had a moderate case and did not need hospitalization. But afterwards, I just didn't get better. The fever went away, but he shortness of breathe, (SOB,) fatigue, chest pain, strange symptoms comin

  3. Dear Carnivore, There’s a lot I can say about your post and experience. First of all I want to apologize for your bad experience, secondly you mentioned being in the food industry yourself and should know that the best thing a customer can do “is let management know of your experience “ your food wasn’t cooked right ? You didn’t like it ? Let them know!! It gives them the opportunity to fix it! Why go behind “doors” and criticize and talk bad about the place when they have no clue there’s an unhappy customer. Good or bad reviews helps us grow. But the most important ones are the one brought up

  4. I went for a single stem cell injection in my left hip as my cartilage is almost gone after 51 years of dancing on it. I forget the man's name, but he also comes from GDL and provides this service in Dra. Justina's Clinic. I had an x-ray before the procedure to confirm my suspicions of diminishing cartilage. He told me to wait about 5-6 months and get another x-ray. I did and my cartilage is growing. I can only speak for my experience but I'm grateful I caught it in time while I still had cartilage for the stem cells to initiate re-growth. I did research before choosing this procedure an

  5. This entire post has become so ridiculous that it's now only best described as bad or drunken humour. In case some of the more self-aggrandizing posters have forgotten....the whole purpose of the forum it to allow restaurant clients to honestly report their good OR bad experiences so that anyone who happens to read the post can make their own decision about patronizing the eatery, OR not. Some of the most recent posts can only be described as drivel and an incredible waste of time for both the poster and reader!

  8. A friend just returned from New York, flying direct to Mexico City ( to avoid U.S. stops with more CoV contagion) and then here. No food service on the plane. She went through FIVE sanitary checkpoints in Mexico City airport.... mask, temperature check, gel, and health questions. Mexico is taking the threat from entries from other countries quite seriously. And yes, for sure if you are coming from a more actively "contagious" state. Walmart requires temp check, mask, and gel plus is taking head count for entry. One person per family "unit" allowed in. (Not always observed.......) Res

  9. I suggest that restaurant owners check this website for opinions. I would find it very uncomfortable to discuss my dissastisfaction with the owner of the restaurant. Who would be more aware of the shortcomings of the food and/or service than the owner? The lack of awareness would only be believable if the owner were not directly involved with the day to day operation of his/her business. The owner's post was unconvincing, at least to me.

  11. Another interesting side effect seems to be depression, I hear about it from France and I see it in the indigenous communities in Chiapas, It seems that men are more prone to it.. it may be the same thing as the long hauler symptoms, I do not know but the amount of depression and the feel bad and or sick symptoms seems to be on the increase. ii.. I would not take any of the medecine advertise as the "cure " in Mexico on a bet. False and misleading ads are filling the papers in Mexico and the internet on a daily basis.. Lots of snake oils salesmen out there and why people would fall for it is

  14. There is a couple who are making Thai food for delivery only. It's the best I've had since I've lived here and compares favorably to some of my favorite Thai restaurants from NOB. You have to order in advance. They are open Wed - Sat 1:00 - 7:30. If you want a delivery on Saturday you should probably order Friday. Priscila & Eduardo Phone: 984 139 4977 (you can order on Whatsapp or call - English is spoken). Here is a link Thai Food and More and here is the regular menu. You won't be disappointed. 1.

  15. Request your ballot NOW Cutoff dates for requesting your ballot vary by state, but are as early as Oct. 3, so don’t put this off. Request your ballot from the last place you were registered to vote, not necessarily the last place you lived. You must submit a completed Federal Post Card Application (FPCA) to your local election officials. The FPCA. serves as both your ballot request and voter registration, and must be received at least 45 days before an election, to allow ample time to process your request and resolve any problems. Once approved, your name will be put on a list of voters t

  27. Depends on your state. CALL you local Elections Official BEFORE completing and sending your ballot. In FL there is no such requirement to use my Mexican address as my return address. On my FL voter registration/card the line for Mailing Address shows my TX forwarder's address. Again, CALL or EMAIL your LOCAL elections official!!

  28. We live in Ajijic and visited the States for two weeks in August. We few roundtrip, non-stop Guadalajara to Chicago/ O'Hare (ORD) on Aeromexico. Masks were required at all airports, along with social distancing, meaning lines were spread out, many seats/chairs were either removed or spaced out. Only a small number of vendors were open in the airports (e.g., at ORD international terminal, the only food available was Burger King). Lines were short, as there are few flights.Some of the airport lounges were closed. Planes were boarded back-to-front, and the boarding rules were one or two rows at a

  29. Great post by Best Side and wish you well. Here is a very interesting article about a hospital / MD developed therapy in Ocala Florida, that combines proven existing drugs to help fight the worst symptoms and effects - not the virus itself - and thus can keep people out of the ICU if started early. Still being tested but quite promising and could help fill the gap until vaccines are available: https://www.ocala.com/story/business/2020/09/22/ocala-developed-covid-19-therapy-local-study/5865410002/ Best thing of course is to stay safe, distanced, masked, and patient, so as not
