    Although, he tried to rip you off, the driver told you the truth. Uber has a written agreement negotiated between GDL government, taxi drivers and Uber to only service area he mentioned. This agreement stopped the damages, vehicle fires, rock throwing, etc. from taxi drivers to Uber drivers. Now, some rogue Uber drivers are violating that agreement. Rogue Uber drivers are the ones hanging around the airport and working in lakeside. They have no authorization to sell their services at either location. Uber is not supposed to be servicing lakeside which is why so few are here and many of them want you to call them directly so they can charge whatever they want and pocket the whole charge. They are the rogue Uber drivers. You got caught by one who is simply trying a new scam to get more money from you.

    If this is correct why does the Uber app allow start or end point outside the agreed area

  2. from the "The Week USA"

    Pampered dogs, after The Wilson, a restaurant in Manhattan, debuted special dishes for dogs and their owners to share on an outdoor patio. The menu includes a $42 grilled rib eye with baby vegetables and a $14 bowl of mixed berries.

  3. A team from  Guadalajara performs colonoscopies at the Ajijic Clinic once a month on Saturdays.

    You can book either at the clinic or at Dr Leon's cost is/was about $5000 + the prep solution.

    Found and removed all the cancerous tissue in my wife's colon,  that was confirmed when she later had her colon removed.

    That is about the best recommendation I can give.

  4.  Laws tend to be optional Mexico whether we like it or not.

    How many of us pay all the taxes we are liable for or have not given a donation to a policeman.

    Picking your favourite law and expecting the world to obey it a little optimistic.

    Ian I believe you said you were a chef in Europe.  If so you know under the Euro, people are allowed to bring dogs in restaurants unless the restaurant has restricted them.  However, as a consideration to other diners Europeans do not bring dogs in restaurants except the odd service dog.  In addition the dog must have a chip inplanted, must be vaccinated and vaccination's recorded.  They must attend training and violet breeds must be muzzled in public.  On top of this they must pay a fee each year for having the dog.  Here it is against regulations to bring dogs in restaurants and these expats who have no consideration for other diners give truth to the saying the Ugly Gringo.

    What a load of rubbish

    Not  much different from how it actually works in Mexico it is at the owner/ manager discretion, no paper work the only chips are the ones you eat.

    Please insist on potholes  being  repaired with cement and cobble stones. the  problem areas that are very serious will be nonexistent if they put cement in the potholes and cement with the rocks instead of sand. In the long run it will save much money with without using sand  and using cement which will be a permanent fill for the hole   

    But no work for next year then!!

    Canadians are not the problem.  People with a hostile, unwelcoming attitude are the problem.  Most Canadians I've met are polite people and the exception is rare.

    As far as State Dept. warnings are concerned, we can't deny that there have been escalating problems with violence at the resorts.  So, a warning is appropriate.  And naturally, it would be nice for the U.S. to keep the bucks at home.

    Not only at the resorts a Canadian killed and a body outside my door on Ocampo
