  1. Thank you. I think I will call a friend for transport.
  2. They aren't answering the 376-106-2127 number. I am stranded. Thanks for the help.
  3. This might help, but you may need to take a taxi from airport or shuttle to Juarez bus station, then see below to get across border to El Paso Center https://www.transborde.com.mx/english/#rutas_horarios
  4. No pets. No responsibilities, except come and go as normal and sleep at the house. Let in the maid once a week is all. House is comfortable. Perhaps 4 weeks, maybe less.
  5. Thank you all. Very very helpful. Wonderful choice there at the northern tip of Saltillo at the Sheraton, to go either way to the border, Laredo or P/N or Ciudad Acuna. The 3.5 hours to Nuevo Laredo and 5.5 hours to Ciudad Acuna will be an option to have. Thanks again.
  6. Tlajomulco? ABCD and E were today. The website still says tomorrow, Wednesday, is pendiente. Another posting said vacunas will be given through the 14th at Tlajo. My question is if we are last name F, G, H, I, or J should we assume we should be going to Tlajo tomorrow or should we waint until the website is updated. Anyone? Thanks.
  7. Planning a drive to Texas in late June or so. Does anyone have a recommended hotel outskirts on west side Saltillo, and one in Monclova, and one in Ciudad Acuna? I have a dog and a fully stuffed truck, and top of truck, so 1. night security parking will be paramount, and 2. hotel needs to be dog friendly. I just don't know how much driving we will do each day, thus the hotel questions for each town. Many thanks for any replies.
  8. Example: Flying from Monterrey to Guadalajara, must air travelers be tested? If yes, then is Rapid Test (antigen) enough? Thanks.
  9. Yes, I hope those who got the shot in Tlajomulco will share to the board if they get contacted, (and make a BOLD NEW SUBJECT HEADER RE: TLAJOMULCO); and, what are the specifics: such as if second dose recipients will be assigned to come on a certain day based on the first letter of their last name, or any other information that the officials tell. I too think we should be contacted by the end of this week as tomorrow marks 21 days for me, which is the recommended time interval for dose 2 Pfizer. Thank you all.
  10. Thank you for the article. Theories abound, more will come, and the one about actually strengthening various immune systems in the body by using different vaccines to activate different ones is quite interesting, and well presented. I like scientists who can make analogies so that everyday people can understand the science. Bless those people who volunteered even from the earliest days, to take the trial vaccines. In slight angular disagreement with you, but not wishing to be argumentative, safety pervades everything having to do with Covid and what scientists are trying to do to solve or alleviate it. Otherwise, the part about the Brits going forward with policy prior to having the facts would not have been mentioned as a risk. What defines risk? Safety. Cheers.
  11. Skimmed the thread, and to add a couple notes: https://www.forbes.com/sites/joewalsh/2021/02/25/pfizers-covid-vaccine-doesnt-need-ultra-cold-storage-fda-says/?sh=76aa50fd226e Secondly, not to be in any way argumentative, but Mostly Lost, may I ask where the information came from that mixing vaccines is o.k.? Part of one personal plan I had was to get a vaccine here, and then another in the U.S. To my knowledge, the U.S. is not offering Chinese vaccines whereas 50 million Chinese vaccines were ordered into Mexico. I thus emailed a U.S. research and teaching professor in microbio and chemistry (30 years) if I could or should mix vaccine different types. He said as of two weeks ago, that not enough information is available to make the determination of safety of mixing vaccines. Anyway, if you have a good source that it is o.k. to mix vaccine types, that would be a big help for many people. Indeed, if anyone knows mixing vaccines is dangerous, that would be helpful too. For now, personally, I am wary and reluctant to mix vaccines.
  12. Of course I knew people would leap to conclusions about why I am seeking the noise recording device. Perhaps that is not something I wish to reveal, and not only have I been on the board for 7 years, I have been in Latin America since 1975. I probably can discuss the merits of several Latin countries with those who presuppose why I am interested in a recorder. One of my friends sells amplifiers for the electronics markets in Latin America. The manufacturer of the amplifiers is interested in the noise levels that Mexico produces, and how that quantifies in their market opportunity, how their products might fit, or not. Yes, all the extraneous preacher posters lecturing and admonishing about who does and who does not fit in Mexico sometimes should check their own high horse and make sure they're even on the correct trail and not assume their assigned attitudes fit the original poster's intent. However, that would take more mental discipline and courtesy and restraint than some possess. Thanks to those who took the question and gave me good non-presumptive answers: the app route, etc. and the notes on those in the recording industry. I think I am looking at a $200 investment to get any kind of separations that I need for ambient noise, and of course the measurements. Thanks.
  13. I am searching for ambient noise level recordings (outside my house, even outside my street, Carnaval concerts for example). Handheld recorders up to $100 usd if possible. The articles all seem to focus on recorders that will cancel ambient noise so that voice can come through clearly. That is the opposite of what I want. I would like to establish ambient noise levels of normal surrounding life in my neighborhood, versus when things go nuts, like late at night or 3 a.m. to 4 a.m. or during Carnaval. Anyway, Evistr 16gb handheld gets high marks $40 plus $10 freight, but again it uses noise cancelling and does not mention an option to stop that function. I want to record the full blast of all frequencies (ambient) to get what I want. Anyone techie enough to know about handheld recorders? Thanks.
  14. Your first post, Bisbee Gal, runs right along with the advice given me my a 30 year Teaching Research Professor at NYU in molecular biology and chemistry Phd., a former classmate. mRNA and DNA vaccine is not gene therapy or altering or substituting anyone's DNA. He says, some people, even doctors, just do not understand fully -- science.
  15. Mainecoons or anyone: I have tried to collect this and that alternative "medicine." However, I would not know how to self-administer. Can you recommend or know the names of doctors locally who do treat Covid? I just need to get lined up in case. Many thanks.
  16. Invariably, posters are compelled to call out someone else wrong, even using the OP's own words in a backlash mode of responding. In the threads above, for example, neither wrong, nor not wrong were necessary, only incendiary. The content didn't change a whit. One can post an opinion, even perhaps a fact, without preloading it with senseless emotional attack. Let the reader judge. Strunck & White: Write only the words needed, economy of words; this might apply especially when spiteful, argumentative words are nearly always unneeded. Deliver a message without them and give the world a chance at calm reasoning. Oh, and up yours. LOL.
  17. Hola Lexy, I just went in again to try to register for the vaccine. Ever since the day it accepted by CURP and stalled me out at the entry page, it at least has remembered my CURP. All I have to do is type the first letter, and the CURP box fills in. Then this morning for the first time, the page advanced to Confirmation of CURP information, my age, sexo, and other data. I think then it asked me "desearme una vacuna?" More or less, am I desiring a vaccination to which I clicked the button. Then, it advanced to another page wanting my location, state, city, zip code, phone number, and any notes I wanted to add. I pressed the send button. Up popped the following which meant I was successfully registered. Ud. ha sido registrado exitosamente. Con el folio: AM-xxxxxxxx Espere nuestra llamada donde le indicaremos su fecha y lugar de vacunación CURP: xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx Thus the process takes about four simple pages to keep clicking through and adding some personal information, but in the end, I am given a Folio No. and that to await their phone call for where they will indicate date, place of the vaccination. This experience of mine simply tells me either I was finally lucky to get through the registration process on the mivacuna website, or your experience may finally succeed. The Confirmation of the CURP page had listed right there my birth date, month, year so they knew I was well over sixty years of age based on my CURP info they already had and just were confirming. GOOD LUCK.
  18. What is somewhat confounding for me is the lack of information or the presumption that a pcr test result can be achieved at the airport test center in a matter of an hour or so. Is a laboratory on site right at the airport? The PCR test results I have always read about were taking anywhere from 48 to 96 hours for results. Anyone know if somehow the airport is giving pcr tests with results within an hour or so. That would sure help the folks trying to get into countries requiring pcr testing.
  19. I really can't say, lakeside7, because the info came from my brother who was traveling after leaving the airport and now he's gone. He is not from here, so I would go with some of the other posters' clarifications of how the floors are set up and numbered. I only hope the signs are clear for where the test center is, where a person should go, and where a person can park, etc.
  20. Brother just replied that the Test Center (at Guad Airport Parking Second Level) IS OPEN 24 HOURS, so it will accommodate even an early early flight ... for an Antigen test at least.
  21. A brother and his tapatia wife were in town from Los Angeles and needed to fly back to LAX. I told them be sure to get tested at the airport for the ANTIGEN test, maybe even on their way back to Guad yesterday, check to see if they can get tested right then. They got tested yesterday, but as you can read below, ANTIGEN testing is available also, same day as the flight. However, with the number of hours he recommended being there ahead of flight time to allow for testing and normal processing of bags etc, one might be well advised to get the test the day before a flight if the flight is very very early in the morning. Here are his words for what they are worth: "You can do same day. Looks like the majority of people did, but you should get there 4-5 hours before flight if you do. It’s on 2nd floor of parking structure. You will fill out a form while in line and then they about 8-10 windows to fill out your data in their system and charge 450 pesos. They then call your name when ready to test you in separate booth. Swab to the nose around 8 times and your done. You then wait outside 30 minutes for results or they can send to your email. It’s Mexico, so I waited for a hard copy of course. Hopefully this will clear up and you wont need to do it."
  22. Black people all my life have told me I have an open mind, not a racist mind, even when I was doing Social Work. Perhaps the "dangerous ground" you write of is the national politicization of race. National politicization of issues has become sucker bait and sound bites. Perhaps that's where the ground is of which you write.
  23. Not only diminishes the original meaning of the word, but the hyper-excessive use of "RACISM" in the last five years, has diminished all argumentation to zero. No other thoughts, no other insights, no other possibilities, no other creative solutions, no shades of meaning, no nuances, no nothing exists except the need for decapitation of mythical white supremacy. Americans were educated since the 1950s to open their minds, and keep them open. How quickly those minds have been slammed shut, only to be "re-educated" like a Khmer Rouge camp, just before the next stage, The Killing Fields. LOL.
