  1. Sometimes their connectivity goes down and that is when they cannot process CCs. I used mine yesterday at the Farmacia GDL at the San Antonio Hospital.
  2. Ferret, I hope this message doesn't irritate you any more than you already are, but IF, in the future, you need to contact Apple Support, I have a suggestion that MIGHT help. I am an Apple user and owner of 38 years, and I have had my share of aggravations with them. When I was a teacher using the products I had a tech to run to for advice . As a civilian now, for over 10 years, I took this tip from a salesman and have used it ever since. Dial an Apple store in a large city the US and tell them you have "such and such" a problem with whatever device,and do they have someone to help you. Often they put you through to a "Genius" and then he or she usually transfers you to the Technical Support Division. Calls from stores seem to be answered/issues resolved much more quickly than general 1-800 Support calls. I have had Apple Support call me on my house phone while working with me to try to "unbrick" my iPhone. It is important that they have another number to call on. I hope that you get your issues resolved. It can't hurt to try what has worked for me, and the calls are free, since they come from a landline number in the states. Best of luck. Cindy
  3. This time they sent a man around with small flyers. I spoke to him yesterday as he was passing through the neighborhoods. I saw him placing papers under gates of homes where no one answered the bell.
  4. I know how to make both, as well as many other Asian dishes. Even how to make a deep, rich broth. Sometimes I just want someone else to do it, do it well and make it taste authentic !
  5. I agree with JoyinMexico about it being busy. I keep a stash of those immigration forms at my house and fill them in BEFORE I arrive. Just ask for several and they will give them to you. As for wheelchair users, please remember that not everyone's disability or need is obvious. Here, we get to decide IF WE NEED IT. You can have them wheel you to your gate and dismiss them to go and pick up another user. Not everyone needs a ride to the front door of the plane, or a ride and someone to help them go to the toilet and get into their seat. That does not negate the needs of others. I certainly do not, but have enough titanium in my feet to make standing in a really long security line a truly painful experience. I would happily swap those screws and plates for the ability to stand in one place for as long as needed. I do not look as if I "deserve" a wheelchair, but sometimes I need it.
  6. This is Mexico. If you are older than 65 and you say you need it, you need it. If you don't feel like you can legitimately stand and shuffle for as long as an hour in the snakey line to get to security, then you can ask for it.
  7. One can never tell. Sometimes very busy, sometimes not. I would give myself plenty of time to get TO the airport, and once there, if you need it, ask for a wheelchair and get whisked past those long, snaky security lines.
  8. I agree with the others. Get a van from the cab kiosk at the airport. You might have to wait a few minutes, but it is so very easy.
  9. Thank you, Angus ! I spent 2 years at Yongsan Garrison in Seoul. Living off post, we had several little neighborhood restaurants we frequented, and there were many Korean dishes that became favorites ! Some, not so much.
  10. I have Prime both in Mexico and USA. Love them both, use them both. All items are delivered to my door. Even my new shoes ! No issues yet and it has been several years now. 🙏 My dogs know the Amazon delivery guy and only give him a half hearted bark when he drives up !
  11. I have used and can recommend Dr. Rigoberto Rios in Mirasol. My cataract surgery turned out to be more complicated than we thought, but he was supportive and all has turned out well. This was my 3rd surgery with him, so I have some experience from which to speak. I had 2 other surgeries when I lived in Japan, and I can say that the care I received here was even better than i had in Japan. Of course, much of the cost per surgery depends upon the type of lens that is used. As another poster stated, every eye is different. Prices vary when you look at hospital choices (mine was in GDL, but now he operates at the new hospital in San Antonio), personal health risks, and the type of lens you choose. I recommend a 1-1 consultation with ANY eye doctor that you choose.
  12. There are fewer buses on the road in the villages. Many are in for repair and there is no money to repair them. To me, it feels as if there are a LOT more people here now than when I first came back in 2005/6. The buses are crowded and the schedules often undependable. I have no car, so I use the bus or walk. Sometimes I wait 5 minutes, sometimes 30+.
