  1. I disagree. My first response when the post was first made as to KIND of fish, I was just going to post OLD. Eyes should be bright and bulging with NO cloudiness. https://food.ndtv.com/food-drinks/how-to-tell-if-your-fish-is-fresh-5-tips-to-remember-1751503 There is only one fish that I would even consider in that photo... the second one down on the left. YMMV.
  2. There's something for everyone. As I said previously you do NOT need a Mexican credit card. It's all about choice and needs. There are many more choices with a contract. Telcel amigo (pay as you go) plans... https://www.telcel.com/personas/telefonia/amigo/todavia-no-tienes-amigo#!tarifas Telcel contract plans...https://www.telcel.com/content/telcel/personas/telefonia/planes-de-renta/tarifas-y-opciones/telcel-max-sin-limite.html
  3. I go to MiTelcel (you have to set it up online) and go to payments and click on download of the most recent bill, print it off and pay at Oxxo. Somehow, the 711 employees don't know how to do this. They have to scan the bar code ON THE LEFT SIDE OF THE FIRST PAGE. Pay and leave. Telcel sends MULTIPLE messages about payment coming due. They make it very hard to forget.
  4. Not that there's anything really bad about getting "stuck" in Mexico. I know a few people who opted to stay here when the outbreak occurred. They're not whining.
  5. You wouldn't catch me on a plane or in an airport or in a bus or on a train right now... https://www.businessinsider.com/infectious-disease-osterholm-darkest-weeks-of-pandemic-2020-10?r=MX&IR=T
  6. I have a Telcel subscription and do not have a Mexican credit card. Got it a couple of years ago. They do come to the door and confirm where you live though. I thought it was rather over the top at the time especially when I wasn't buying anything on credit from them. If I didn't pay the bill for service, the service would just be cut off. Fine with me. I like being able to have a real bill and a regular known date of payment. I don't recommend Sandra although she is very personable. I do recommend Anna at the Telcel store just south of Alex's Restaurant.
  7. The other alternatives would be in the States. Florida, California, New Mexico, Nevada, Arizona. Uh uh. Don't think so.
  8. It's the major airport used by most Canadians to get to Mexico. But don't tell anyone because we don't want anyone else to come here.
  9. It's so much easier to just post FACTS provided by LINKS to end this argument... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Toronto_Pearson_International_Airport https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Etobicoke It's entirely possible that, at one time, the airport was mostly in Etobicoke. Runways change, terminals change etc. But, right now, it is mostly in Mississauga.
  10. Just went through this three months ago when my old flat screen wall mounted TV died. Calvario's in SJC couldn't fix it. To make a long story short, I bought one through Walmart ONLINE because they didn't have what I wanted in the store. I picked what I wanted in the online catalogue then took that information to the kiosk just inside (and to the left of the entrance). Set up an account there BUT took the invoice to pay at the Wally cashiers. Took the paid receipt back to the kiosk and they gave me my copy with my receipt attached. It was delivered to the Walmart store and, when I got an e-mai
  11. Do you have to be a member of LCS to participate in their health day. And/or do members have a priority?
  12. LOL! And thanks for the lesson! At one point, I was thinking about buying something similar and traveling around. Couldn't wrap my head around the poor return on investment and decided I liked deep roots. Kept me busy for months though looking at them and daydreaming.
  13. FYI, you can search "Casa Rodante + Mexico" for more Mexican plated trailers and RV's... https://vehiculos.mercadolibre.com.mx/motorhomes/ https://www.segundamano.mx/anuncios/jalisco/tlajomulco-de-zuniga/camiones-comerciales-y-casas-rodantes/exelente-casa-rodante-aspen-trail-931987838 https://soloautos.mx/vehiculos/casas-rodantes/usado-tipo-de-autos/?gclid=EAIaIQobChMI1ubcx-Kl7AIVD9vACh1bOA_REAAYASAAEgLzmfD_BwE check out the 2013 HitchHiker in Nuevo Leon in the last link for 260,000 pesos... house on wheels... goose neck that would be pulled by a heavy duty pick up truck. h
