  1. Somewhere on the Libramiento across from El Dorado...
  2. Also, there are great hand-crafted greeting cards at Sweets ‘N Treats on 16 de septiembre next to Cocinart. All,proceeds go to support Hope House orphanage in Ixtlahuacan.
  3. There are two different organizations in the Lakeside area who offer free spay neuter clinics several times a year. There are many expat volunteers manning those clinics. You skills as a vet tech, with grooming, and the fact that you speak Spanish would make you a valuable volunteer at these clinics. I have served as a team leader in the registration area of these clinics for the past couple of years. I’ve found the clinics to be one of the most rewarding activities in which I’ve been involved. We need truly bilingual volunteers to work with registration.The two organizations are Operación Amor (operates in the Chapala municipality) and Tails of Mexico (operates in the Jocotepec municipality). I also volunteer teaching English once a week to high school and university students who are scholarship recipients in the Pathways program that was founded a few years ago by Pat Baxter. There are many volunteer opportunities here for someone like you. Working for wages is another thing; one must have a permanente visa (vs. a temporal visa or a tourist permit) in order to work. If you hold a temporal visa, then you must obtain a separate permission to work from Mexican immigration (INM).
  4. You can pay your predial at Chapala with a credit or debit card. I didn’t see any such sign at SIMAPA, but I wasn’t looking for it.
  5. You will need your plate number and the last five digits of your VIN. https://gobiernoenlinea1.jalisco.gob.mx/vehicular/index.jsp
  6. I'm pretty sure we have a sturdy, well-wheeled folding grocery cart (the type that you pull behind yourself) out in our bodega. I will check tomorrow and I can post a photo for you. If indeed I'm correct, I'd be happy to sell it to you. We are located in lower eastern Ajijic, near the bottom of the Wednesday tianguis.
  7. Also at COPY RIBERAS, across the carretera from OXXO and Intercam in Ajijic.
  8. The FOLIO is a ticket, photo infraction from 29 October 2017, 755 pesos. I think you owe a total of 1274.
  9. We have friends with family in Houston who cross at Pharr. When they come south, they spend the night in Ciudad Victoria.
  10. Locally I have seen this brand’s salad dressings at Super Lake.
  11. I lower eastern Ajijic, we have little to no power. Contractor just arrived; he lives on Juarez, a half block south of the Carretera. No luz at his house and he said traffic lights are out. I just called the CFE report number. They had a report already filed at 7:40 from Rio Bravo.
  12. Thanks, John, for current info. I must admit that the last transfer we sent was 18 months ago...
  13. We have a Bancomer account, debit card only. We have received a couple of wire transfers to our account here from the US and paid nothing here on this end, only aa fee from our originating bank in the States.
  14. On the Carretera, lake side of the road, a few doors east of the Catholic Church. It’s located where Café Magaña used to be. Across the road from Moyoyo Car Wash and the Naked Stage / Unitarian Church location.
  15. I offered the Spanish in case the OP finds it more convenient to go somewhere other than Tony’s.
  16. The name for this cut in español is “diezmillo.” You will I see it on one of the vinyl signs hanging on the wall at Tony’s.
  17. Mainecoon has excellent directions from Pharr. Coming from there, you don’t overnight in Matehuala. That’s the Laredo-Lakeside mid-point.
  18. The Sunday closing performance is a matinee with a 3:00 curtain. The doors open at 2:00. The show is technically sold out ?; however, come early and be in line at the box office when it opens at 2:00 and put your name on the waiting list. They will give you a number. Then go to the terrace, have a beverage ???and buy a calendar ? while you wait. People have done this at every performance of the run and have been seated a few minutes before curtain. It’s a show that will make you ? and ?. Signed, The Stage Manager ???
  19. You are correct on the spelling: adoquín, requiring a written accent on the “i”
  20. In Jocotepec, as you’re entering town, there’s an OXXO on your left. There is a median in the highway through there. As soon as the median ceases to exist as you drive west, there is a place with chain link fence on your left (lake side) which sells fountains, aldonquines, cantera, etc. It is before the first stoplight. If you’d like to see the pavers we purchased there, drive by our sidewalk in lower eastern Ajijic at Juan Manuel #17 (the north/south street that is one block west of the tianguis street, Revolución) at the corner of the Privada Francisco Madero), just a block up from the lake, sidewalk is on the west side of the street.
  21. Let me ask our contractor tomorrow. We recently did a new sidewalk outside our home and he acquired the aldonquin pavers from a supplier in Jocotepec.
  22. I did call them first thing. I then had to leave my house due to commitments and could not stay to watch over the dog. It took them between 90 minutes and two hours to come; I had asked them to call my cell when they knew what they were going to do about it. They then did call me when they were close to the location I had given them. They said they couldn’t find the dog; it was gone. I asked them to check the nearby vacant lot to see if someone had put it there. They did and found nothing. I’m sorry I couldn’t stay home to watch over the dog to be sure no one took him. I had no control over the neighbor’s gardener taking the dog to bury him. If you’d like to volunteer to come stand vigil next time until Ecología arrives, that would be great. We were unaware of the dogs who were dumped on a vacant lot next to us several weeks ago until the odor became such that we started searching for where it was coming from. Construction workers nearby found one small dog and buried him. Two mornings later, the air was worsening. Upon additional searching, they found a second larger dog which most likely had been there longer and they then buried it. When multiple poisonings occurred a year or so ago, my husband and I found raw chicken on the street several times near our home and removed the threatening substance. We have not seen anything similar recently.
