  7. Pete - are you sure about banks being open yesterday? HSBC was closed.
  8. Inauguration Day is a Federal holiday so I am assuming (always risky) that it is a paid holiday for all.

    I have been very comfortable with Dra. Iliana who comes to Quality Care in Ajijic once a week from Guadalajara. She speaks excellent English. You can call 766-1870 to make an appointment.
  12. Cedros - Niarette is an error and it should be Nayarit - we think! There is no Niarette.

  15. If you have time, go and look at the plaza tonight. It is lovely with Catrinas made by local schools, altars set up by local families and the Delegacion plus carpets made of colored wood chips and sponsored by local businesses. The kiosko is a particularly wonderful altar. Very special and not to be missed. A couple of altars are still being worked on so you can see the effort that goes in to making them.
  16. I just came from trying to use the HSBC ATM - for the first time for me personally it offered a dollar amount for my withdrawal, prompting me to either accept or decline. I recognized that it was not favorable to me and declined. I was then told my transaction could not be processed. The rate offered was somewhere in the 18.80 range. I went around the corner to CIBanco, to find a notice saying that the bank's cards are limited to 5000 pesos a day and other bank cards to 10,000 pesos a day, not per transaction, but per day. Maybe they are tired of loading money in the machine??? My exchange rate there was 19.32.

    HSBC/CIbanco ATM's FYI

    I've been using the same card for the last two years at least at HSBC and this is the first time this note appeared. It's interesting when one considers that the website showing the dollar for the day in Mexico was showing HSBC as giving 19.70 at the time my non-transaction occurred. I was using the right hand machine as that one is the easiest to read. Next time, if there is a next time, I'll use the left hand one.

    HSBC/CIbanco ATM's FYI

    That is what I expected to happen, Cedros, and I was somewhat amazed when the transaction ended with me declining the offered exchange rate. Jrod, they were not offering me pesos or dollars but asking me to agree to an unfavorable exchange rate for the pesos I was about to take out.

    Mexican credit card

    Is anyone aware of a Mexican bank that will give a credit card to someone over 70 years of age?

    Telcel phone plan

    Maybe your Canadian friends could text you so you can call them back. That is one solution to the long distance charges.

    HSBC bank in San Antonio

    Just returned home and it was closed at around 11.15 a.m. when I stopped to use the ATM. No explanation at all. There was movement inside that I could see.
