  1. The library and the bus trips were the only things I ever used. Now that I know my way around Guadalajara I don't need the bus trips.
  2. Has anyone noticed if the displays of quality chocolates are on display yet at Costco. Late last month they weren't. If you wait too close to Christamass they are sold out. Needed for Xmas gifts.
  3. I got the trivalent at Centro de Salud in Jocotepec several weeks. No charge-I just showed them my CURP.
  4. I have used more than 10 different plumbers-many aren't very good. Jose Luis Gonzalez is a smart one who can fix almost anything. He speaks English and he isn't expensive. 331 326 4662. If he sends one of his sons-they are still learning. I doubt if any of the local plumbers have had proper training.
  5. I have half a dozen watches that I keep going. Neither of those two can do it properly. I guess if you have a cheap watch it tdoesn't matter. It it is a good watch you have to take it to Daniel Jackson. He is a jeweler in Ajijic at Hidalgo 29A, 376 766 2223. If it is something he can't do he goes to Guadalajara once a week and will leave it with an expert watchman there. I have used the two mentioned above and they are novices.
  6. Launching of cohetes, homemade skyrockets, is a tradition in Mexico going back centuries when the noise was considered to scare away the devil and vanish all evil. Today they are often used simply for amusement. They are used, and sometimes abused, for every festival, funeral and public gathering.
  7. I thought the trees being removed referred to the Chapala plaza.
  8. Sell some land. Much of it isn't used. The LCS is not what it used to be. I was a member for many years but gave it up.
  9. Of course-that is obvious. You missed it. I remember getting gas at a Pemex north of Puerto Vallarta a few years ago. I knew exactly how much my VW van would take. Soon they were supposedly putting more gas into my tank than as if it had been empty. I protested. At that point the Pemex guard came over (with his rifle) and said you pay. So I paid. Pemex gas stations for years have been notorious for shortchanging customers. They have been know to fiddle the pumps as soon as the government inspector leaves. When I moved here 11 years ago we soon had a list of stations to avoid for c
  10. Why would I tip those people for pumpng gas? Many times overs the years they have tried to cheat me on gas delivery.
  11. I hope Ajijic doesn't become a Magic Town. It would really lower the standard for Pueblo Magiocs and make the real Pueblo Magicos mean less. The majority of building in Ajijic centro would still be ugly.
  12. I will tell her that I will get it for her here and she has to figure out how to get it to Canada.
  13. The drug is legal in both countries and people send such drugs through the mail.
  14. It would not be as a drug runner.
  15. This is what she says "I am sick of begging these frigging doctors for some as I have severe anxiety!! What do you thiink?"
  16. I probably have to give it to somone who is going to British Columbia and that perosn could put it in the postal service there.
  17. Thanks for all the information. So I can buy it here. My cousin wants me to mail it to her in Canada that may be the difficult part.
  18. A cousin in Canada asks if Ativan is available here. I willask here first before I check local farmacias.
  19. From Ojo del Lago; "From the terrace of our home in Ajijic, I look south across Lake Chapala at cone-shaped Mount Garcia. It’s one of many extinct volcanoes that rose eons ago. The dome on top may be a hardened lava stopper that sealed the tube and ended an eruption. Lower down the slope is another cone, perhaps a later eruption that broke through rubble under the cork." Written by Alice Hathaway
  20. But the owner of the house has it for sale.
  21. Thanks. I got it. That is certainly an easier way but in some rooms it may be unsightly.
