  1. "Oh, and did I say that this huge sting exercise was literally across the street from where I lived? But they wouldn't let me leave my car and just walk across the street. And, at first they told me that I was going to be in jail for 36 hours and I was frantic for my dog." She expects the cops to let her run home after being detained. Totally privileged person.
  2. Yes, she was drunk, she failed the breathalyzer. It's great she'll never drink and drive and break the law again. You don't get to set the law, the government does. You seem to be someone who cannot accept "facts." So goodbye, you are of no use to this conversation. Also, you assume I am American. LOLZ.
  3. I believe the expat victim, too. She drank, she failed the breathalyzer, she went to jail. All by her own admittance. Sounds more like you're being an apologist for drunk drivers.
  4. My favorite part of the "victim's" publically posted tirade (keep in mind, the "victim," who I do know, failed her breathalyzer test, so it would appear she has no right to complain) was when she complained that it was difficult to sleep on a hard floor under bright lights while the "staff" talked "loudly all through the night" and someone in the cell was snoring. Yes, welcome to Mexico. You go to jail and you probably aren't going to be even fed. It's even more horrible, perhaps, than how prisoners in private prisons in the United States are forced to work as slaves. Just don't hop onto social media the moment you get out of jail and complain about social media about how you were treated. You just reveal your white privilege. This person wasn't even in jail for 12 hours and says she persuaded the "staff" to let her go at 6 a.m. for medical reasons. She would never get away with that in the US, and yet she complains of being mistreated. Sounds by her own telling of the event that she was treated just like everyone else gets treated.
  5. I prefer to patronage restaurants that aren't owned by convicted criminals. Assuming Pedro Arellano is still the owner.
  6. Did you have a nice time visiting your mom at the zoo?
  7. Looks similar to a type of leaf-footed bug: https://www.google.com.mx/search?q=Leaf-footed+bug+mexico&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjA7_TE0-rUAhWGSSYKHWcUAu4Q_AUICigB&biw=1920&bih=984#imgrc=Q4uNVHa-M0mKKM:
  8. I'm not 100% certain -- but I don't they do delivery.
  9. FYI: The son, Alejandro, moved his restaurant next to Johanna's in Ajijic. He's still in the area.
  10. Obviously, self-appointed expert Todd Strong is wrong.
  11. Let's hope they don't spread to Jalisco! If you want to harm Mexico, buy your gas from Costco. And shame on any of you who do. http://www.telesurtv.net/english/analysis/James-Cypher-Mexican-President-Turns-Pemex-into-Ponzi-Scheme-20160311-0042.html
  12. My god, people. Please learn how to use the internet to find a map: https://www.google.com.mx/maps/@20.3008918,-103.2590203,3a,75y,25.81h,89.73t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1sf1K5lrD8qQR0IZkd37esEw!2e0!7i13312!8i6656?hl=en

    Tortillería Elena is the tortillería that Kevin K mentioned. They supply the masa to El Chile Verde and other restaurants. https://www.google.com.mx/maps/@20.2995781,-103.2603599,3a,75y,313.56h,84.91t/data=!3m7!1e1!3m5!1szC_TL_4wIIYRcA0up7LaJQ!2e0!6s%2F%2Fgeo1.ggpht.com%2Fcbk%3Fpanoid%3DzC_TL_4wIIYRcA0up7LaJQ%26output%3Dthumbnail%26cb_client%3Dmaps_sv.tactile.gps%26thumb%3D2%26w%3D203%26h%3D100%26yaw%3D23.996159%26pitch%3D0%26thumbfov%3D100!7i13312!8i6656?hl=en

  16. Though most here wouldn't be in the know, many Mexicans are into buying, well, Mexico these days. They are boycotting American brands. There are plenty of Mexican brands available. You're in Mexico. Why not support your local economy?
  17. The narcos are always killing thieves. They killed my neighbor, an indigent 20-something with a wife and three kids under five, a couple months back. His body was found in a bag by the side of the highway in San Juan Cosalá. This is already well-known, but a narco told me in relation to this incident that local cartel wants people to work "legal." However, he probably just stole from the wrong person.
  18. Phone number, and all the details, here: http://lmgtfy.com/?q=pizza+disco+ajijic The internet is your friend.
  19. Let this be a lesson to you for shopping at evil WalMart instead of supporting your local community.
  20. Out today in Harper's, "Under the Surface: Investigating chronic kidney disease in Jalisco, Mexico" http://harpers.org/blog/2017/04/under-the-surface/
  21. Introducing an invasive fish to the lake which will drive the non-native species to extinction, as it has done all over the world. Yeah, wonderful idea.
  22. Thanks for posting. Same Aztec Dancers that were often in the Ajijic plaza 1.5 years ago.
  23. The Chrome browser allows you to right-click on any image and search it. Doing that, finding that it's likely a photoshopped "Cosmos Pinwheel," then searching for "Cosmos Pinwheel photoshopped" ends in search results with a page about this image here: https://ask.extension.org/questions/302213
