  1. Thanks, RickS. That's sort of what I figured. So the only guidance to offer is the proverbial question, "Do you feel lucky?" 😀
  2. In the meantime, I have a client who is buying a house and wants to bring her Lexus down here. Are there any Lexus owners around and are you able to easily get your car serviced at a Toyota dealer, or anywhere else? Are parts difficult to impossible to find? Thanks.
  3. Had to backtrack from the link, but found it. Thanks!
  4. "You can make an appointment to renew your Jalisco driver license. People with appointments go to a separate facility in Guad..." Great info. Where in Guadalajara was this "separate facility"? It wasn't indicated in your link. Thanks!
  5. Clients of mine crossed northbound at Laredo either yesterday or today, not sure, and said "90 minutes", about "normal" for them.
  6. I tend to translate "naco" to "white trash" so as not to be geographically specific. ("Patán" is a new and useful word for me, so thanks for that.) All of these phrases circle the same area. Apologies to everyone for the language detour.... ...back to lunch at La Vita Bella.
  7. Casón was the "fish of the day" at an Ajijic fonda on Friday. Not sure if the accent mark is needed but that's how waitress pronounced it. What is it casón? Thanks.
  8. I'd pay that price in a heartbeat if it came from a legitimate tree removal service and meant I never had to read any more comments in this thread.
  9. I've received emails from Telmex, phone calls, text messages to my cell phone, etc. The envelope my Telmex bill arrives in has for at least a few months talked about the "new/higher speeds becoming available". I even remember a Telmex envelope about three months ago with a pre-printed "biggest fiber optic network in the country" message. (Of course you have that Telmex. Who else would? But how big compared to what? Pffffft.) My guess: this is all an avalanche of pre-marketing to every Telmex customer throughout all of Mexico. When and if these wondrous new speeds ever arrive here at Hooterville by the Lake is anybody's guess.
  10. Galeana was done BELOW the carretera. We're talking about the first couple of blocks above the carretera.
  11. I'll second this nomination. Of course we all recommend the ones we know best/worst, but that is a bad stretch, and important since it's highly used with the sometimes-working stoplight at the carretera. Upper Revolucion is also an annual joke.
  12. YESSSSS. Never. There are a lot of spooky creeps on the internet. I'm sure Eric Blair would agree.
  13. The same Jaime who's been a (great) waiter there for years?
  14. Well, there's something I didn't expect to read today. Congratulations. But, so long as we're voting for one thing or another.....I vote for a solution to traffic and parking problems in Chapala and elsewhere, improved infrastructure everywhere - including but not limited to sewage treatment, street repair, trash, security, better health care and social services for locals - and, while I'm at it.......ILOX, World Peace, and a local vendor who can make a decent pie crust.
  15. I've been there several times. It's a very nice space, pleasant service, clean etc. There's a salsa/condiment bar for you to choose from. And nice breezes up there. They do a good job on what they do. The "Doradito" is a fried taco with shrimp and cheese for anyone who misses a fried corn tortilla. They do a decent business so people must like it. I just haven't found much on their menu that I really want.
  16. Thanks, Tiny. I didn't know I could recycle those. Not sure though if there's a recyling center in all of Jalisco big enough to accommodate our demographic. 😀
  17. And.....the ONLY sale price that matters in Mexico for tax purposes is the sale price in PESOS, as mentioned in your deed. Buying a house for xxx number of US dollars in 2010 equals a very different amount of pesos than the same xxx number of US dollars now. So is the peso amount in your deed "wrong" or is it due to the change in the exchange rate between purchasing in 2010 versus now? Good luck.
  18. We drove back from Barra yesterday and noticed the same. It was pleasant.

    Spago’s open

    Not sure, but shouldn't the second cup costs twice as much as the first?
  20. That one is beyond the beyond. I don't believe that story.
  21. The woman referred to in the post that started this topic is Canadian.
  22. Thanks. La Costeña is good stuff and easy to find here but I've never tried that one. Probably because this Herdez "Salsa Casera" looks similarly thick and has always been my favorite jarred salsa. I love this stuff. I wonder how they compare.
