    Physio Therapy Services

    Like Dave0415 said above, I did the math. In my case the physical therapy is on the back end of the private medical insurance claim. I had two expensive surgeries in a Guadalajara hospital. Plus consults beforehand, during, and after with surgeon, plus post-surgical medicine......and then the physical therapy began, which I've now been doing for a year. After trying lots of out-of-pocket alternatives before turning to surgery, I knew the route I was taking and knew I'd clear the deductible easily. I began collecting FACTURAS for every single thing once I resigned myself to surgery.

    Physio Therapy Services

    I've been in physical therapy for a year post surgery. As memtioned above, some places are equipped to issue Facturas (needed for insurance reimbursement) and some places aren't. Yes, it will cost more. It's the way it is. Ask first. "Receipts" are worthless, "Facturas" are everything. Once my insurance stops paying reimbursements, I'll shop for less expensive help.

    Canelo Triple G

    I have always HATED boxing. But I have friends here who've invited me to a BBQ and boxing afterward, so it's impossible to not know. Saturday Night the 15th. Late-ish, around 10:30-11pm? Pay channels only. Something like that.

    Pancho's Deli/Grocery

    The Navarro sharp, aged, white cheddar has been available at Walmart for several years. It's really good. I haven't be to Walmart in a long time, but it used to be in a black or almost black package? The other mild Navarro cheddar isn't worth the plastic wrap it's packaged in. Back to Pancho's SuperSomethingSomedaySoon!

    REALLY inconvenient!

    Well yes, of course you're right. I guess my expectations of "proper customer service" have been beaten down to nothing since I've lived here. I'm also not in the habit of making restaurant reservations locally (unless it's a special event night or there's a large group involved). I don't really expect restaurant reservations around here to be treated any more professionally than the average plumber treats an appointment. Hope you enjoy the replacement meal at Elegante, Camille.

    REALLY inconvenient!

    I saw Ricardo and Gloria on Sunday. They are expanding the kitchen. If you saw the current kitchen - about the size of your finger - you'd probably sympathize. Very necessary. Being inconvenienced is no fun. But the kitchen they've been using is a bad joke.

    Ear Piercing Street Vendor in Mexico City

    There's one who goes on patrol in Upper Ajijic where I live, above Farmacia Guadalajara, generally during the cooler/colder nights. It sounds like a steam locomotive pulling into town. I've heard them all over Mexico, even some beach locations.
  11. Never a better time to negotiate a fee than during a heart attack! Re the car wash that's gone: Who knows what's coming? Nobody on this webboard, or nobody who's willing to say. Best bet: more than the car wash that was there.

    Pet Peaves

    I very rarely go to Walmart any more but I forced myself today. A Saturday afternoon. Ugh. Parking lot was pretty full, I gritted my teeth. I had a weird list of about twelve items and figured if I got nine out of twelve I'd claim victory. I found EVERYTHING. Carmex lip balm in abundance....eye drops....bigmouth size tooth brushes...tons of OFF Mosquito repellent. Even a simple shower curtain with no ugly design or "art" on it. SCORE! Riding that wave I rocked over to the cereal aisle and filled my cart with almost their entire inventory of plain Cheerios. (Apologies to patient family who stood there waiting while I reached all the way to the back of the upper shelves.) And they had tons of checkout lanes open, no waiting. I felt like I'd won the lottery. (Admittedly, not sure about the Gala apples yet, they look suspicious...). PET PEEVE: I guess CFE. They is all messed up this year.

    Bobby's prime rib

    I tried it a month or so ago when it was a special. Amount of prime rib was fine for me, but cut thin. Quality mid-range-ish. Came with half a small baked potatoe on the side that had some kind of cheese and five black beans in it to make it special. Others at table seemed happy enough with what was brought, but I wouldn't go back. (Full disclosure: many friends have made it very clear for a long time I'm picky.) The positives: The horseradish slaw to go with the PR was very tasty, and different for me. And the black cherry ice cream for dessert will melt your eyes it's so good. That was weeks ago, so not a recent review. Hope you enjoy it. Provecho!
  14. You do NOT need a Tax/RFC # to buy a house here. If you don't believe me you can ask some nice people from Iowa who closed on a house yesterday in the Raquet Club. (This thread started in 2014 and there's a lot of shit information in it, even some posted recently. Time for it to die.)
