  1. We are Canadians and need to fly to Phoenix. Once in Phoenix we will be driving to Alberta. Has anyone done Immigration at the Phoenix airport lately? As Canadians will we have any issues since we are not in transit via air but instead via land? If I understand the US Immigration website correctly, arriving from Mexico is not a problem. Thanks for all info.
  2. Artsnob is there a way we can see that news cast. Do you remember the name of the news station? Perhaps it will be on u tube.
  3. Hi Tim. You and Mauricio’s nephew are more than welcome to use my photo of him. It shows his twinkle in his eyes. Once again I am so so sorry for your loss. Ajijic has lost another beautiful soul. I sent you a pm.
  4. I knew Pato for many years. He was so gentle and sweet. He always had a good sense of humour and a twinkle in his eyes. Rest in Peace dear sweet Pato.
  5. We don’t own the property. We were the previous renter and the meter is in our name. The property is a long term lease. We didn't want the new tenant to lose power so we didn’t disconnect when we moved. Now she is getting the run around from CFE on changing to her name. The owner does not want it in his name. So back to the question, can anyone confirm if a curp is needed and/or a temporal or permanente for a cfe account.
  6. My understanding is that the new lady must have a CURP to get it put in her name. Am I wrong on that?
  7. What personal documents are required to put a meter in your name? The meter is currently in my name and I want it switched to the new tenant but she is not a permanent resident of Mexico. Can it be done?
  8. I have been here for 13 years and would like to remind everybody to be polite when driving. If you are on one of those narrow two way streets pull over into an empty spot if you can so the other guy can pass. If someone does it for you make sure you wave a gracias to them. when you are on the carretara slow down and let other cars in. You can do this by either flashing your lights or giving them the hand signal that means go ahed. This signal is putting your hand up in front of your face with your palm facing your face. You do this symbol for letting pedestrians cross as well. It is also used for Gracias. And my final tip for the road is “pull out and give er”. There is no need to be a scardy pants when you are trying to enter the carretara. Just put your nose of your car out there, you will notice most people will slow down and let you cross or into the stream of traffic. Keep things moving folks!
  9. Anybody know why there has been 2 helicopters flying back and forth over Ajijic today. They have gone past my place near the lake at least 10 imes. I think they are both white. One has red flowing stripes on it. The letters and numbers on one starts with N.
  10. Not happy with a crown she made for me. Poor workmanship.
  11. I did it today. From the Recoradora office go one block north and 1 block west. Small door and Federal sign on the north side of street. You will need copies. 2 of the ticket and 2 of the certification and vehicle registration card. No problem and ladies were pleasant. Real easy.
  12. Thank you for the offer Sonia, but she will be back to Edmonton by then.
  13. Our daughter flew from Edmonton this morning and left a very important item at security in Edmonton. Anybody know someone coming to Guad in the next 2 weeks. We could have the item delivered to them. Thanks for your help.
  14. Can anyone tell me what rate of exchange (Canadian to pesos) Intercam is offering right now. As in today or yesterday. Yes, I am already approved to make exchanges at Intercam. Thanks.
  15. We want to drive to Canada in June. Does anyone have a Canadian vehicle they would like driven back to Canada or a Canadian vehicle in Mexico they would like to sell to another Canadian.
  16. There is a place in Riberas that rents tools. You could try them. It is across fro S&S Autos.
  17. Oh please, no more leaf blowers. They are so noisy as compared to the nice old fashioned swish of a homemade mexican broom. Our neighbour has one and I would like to grab it and throw it into the lake. He revs it up and down up and down to get a leaf out of a crack. Sooo annoying. Please lets not add more noise to our Enviroment.
  18. Jim Bowie, that price sounds too good to be true. Were they progressive lenses? How long did they take to get made? Would certainly be worth a trip or two if the quality is good. Can you give more info please and perhaps any contact info you have for the place. I was just in Canada and just couldn't bite the bullet for $650 dollars for lenses only. I've seen Pinto twice. Both times I left feeling annoyed at his manner and ripped off for his fast glance at my eyes. I will never again go to him. Christina who used to work across from El Torito was excellent for service. Did she move to Dr. Rios?
  19. We are looking for a rental in Guayabitos for 2 months this winter. Anyone got any leads. Thanks in advance.
