  1. Sometimes, I want to offer a ride to the housekeepers that I see waiting at the bus stop.... to go to Chapala from Ajijic. They know who I am, and I know who they are because they all work in my community. How do I ask if they want a ride to the Chapala Plaza for example?
  2. Great information. Thank you. This is the kind of post that everyone can benefit from.
  3. I just helped someone return another vehicle to Canada.... it is just too expensive and too much trouble to nationalize. (No fee involved, just helping a friend) We are often warned to be very careful who we engage to assist with nationalization. Here is a bit of a rant from the other side of the transaction. Some of the reputable people, who have been doing this for years, have had their reputations dragged through the mud because some broker provided a false document along the way. What is really ironic is that some Americans and Canadians who do not have legal title to the vehicles the
  4. Before trying any fast watercraft, I suggest kayaking. There are many hidden trees and fences under the water. It is very shallow in places. Kayaking would allow you to learn about where these objects are, and where it would be safe to jetski. The experience of kayaking is just amazing. Try it!
  5. It is high for here, but it sure is less than where I come from. I think what she is selling is her training as a stylist and colourist. I only need to go every 5 weeks or so, so 50 pesos does not make a lot of difference to me. I just want to see results. I will give her a try.
  6. Just wanted to let you all know that the volunteers at Upscale Resale are working on expanding our use of the internet, including using Chapala.Com free Classified Ads and Mercado Libre, for some of the bigger items such as musical instruments. There are a lot of great Thrift shops and Bazars in Riberas and, it appears, quite a few people from Guadalajara have made that discovery. The volunteer staff at Upscale Resale are always open to hear ideas, answer questions or concerns. They love to tell you about the two organizations that this effort supports: Hope House and La Ola You can rea
  7. I lived without a car for three months, after moving here. I had visited, many times, without a car. You do not need one. I used to drop about 5 - 10 pounds each visit here because I walked 5 -10 miles a day. After getting a little car, I gained thirty!! A car, if you live in walking distance to groceries and a farmacia, is not a necessity. You can rent a car, once a month or so, when you want to do a little more exploring. You can take one of the organized bus trips to Guadalajara if you want to go to the big stores and there are always taxi's for the evening. I bought my car because I
  8. What was the brand name of the soft drink? Are there bottles around? Roca Azul Cola...... hmmmm. That sounds good!
  9. Also try joining the facebook group expats in mexico. A lot of the members are in their 20s and 30s and some live in the guadalajara area. There are thousands of American/Mexican couples moving to Mexico from the states though many settle near border towns. I know there is a group in the guadalajara area for sure.
  10. You just love your new car huh? It souds like you are just having a ball with it...Go see everything!

  11. Dec 2010 I took a flight from Vancouver to Mexico City on Air Canada. When it was time to board, I showed my id and boarding pass and entered the gate. Just around the corner, after entering the gate doors, were Canadian immigration officers checking IDs. They looked at our passports to see where we were from. They were stopping the Mexicans and asking about their visa status. (They may have stopped other foreigners as well but I did not see that). I was really shocked as I did not know they did this sort of thing. It seemed that most of the Mexicans were young adults, I imagine students

  14. Thanks for the detailed answer regarding enforcing money judgements (from a provincial civil case) in Mexico. I did not notice the answer until this morning. It does seem that, if the person has moved all their assets to Jalisco... unless the judgment is very large... it would not be worth the effort.
