  1. Anyone know where you can find margarita/cocktail glass rimming salt locally?
  2. Is the Zapata 20 peso coin available from any of the local banks?
  3. Superlake. Close to the front when you enter. Right-hand side.
  4. Glad to hear of your experience. A friend at the gym told me this morning he and his wife waited twelve hours yesterday in Chapala to receive their first vaccine of Sinovac.
  5. 450MX at the airport for the Antigen test.
  6. At one time several years ago I had obtained a CURP card but have no idea now where it could be since I have made several moves in the interim. Is there a way to go online and find the number, and if not, is it possible to replace it? Thanks.
  7. Since the CDC will be requiring proof of a negative Covid test before international flights beginning January 26th, does anyone have information on where to have the Covid test performed locally, how long it takes to receive the results and the approximate cost? I would be flying out on a Sunday so I would need to have the test and the results by the Friday or Saturday before.
  8. Is long-term parking no longer available on the top floor of the parking garage?
  9. According to my immigration lawyer you are only permitted one year on a Residente Temporal. Then within 30 days of expiration of the one year you may renew, in Mexico, for another three years.
  10. Would you mind providing the contact information necessary to reach Satellite Systems? Thanks.
  11. I stopped by the new hospital in SAT yesterday and was told October. For what it's worth.
  12. I've got a couple of photos on my iPhone on my WhatsApp and would like to get copies printed. Anyone know of a place locally that can do that? Thanks.
  13. I've been taking either Coumadin or the generic Warfarin for almost 40 years after having PE's on four occasions beginning in my mid 20's. I never had to change the dosage and my PT was always spot on. Several years ago Coumadin became unavailable in Mexico for a month or so and I was prescribed a Mexican blood thinner which I had major problems with so I returned to the states to obtain a prescription. Again Coumadin has been unavailable in Mexico for at least the last three or four months (good article Bisbee Girl) and after my supply ran out and consulting with my doctor, I am now taking Eliquis which is available here non prescription. It is about twice the cost of Coumadin but so far it is working very well for me. Also once you are established on it, it alleviates the need to have a PT test. It does require one dose in the morning and one at night. Lots of information on the web about the two medicines.
  14. Hopefully by August the border crossings will be reopened to nonessential travel and render this moot. I am currently on an FMM and have a TIP that expire in early August. Would it be possible or feasible to drive up to the border (Hidalgo/Pharr preferably) and turn in my unexpired FMM and TIP and then request a new FMM and TIP for an additional 180 days without leaving the building and not crossing into the US, spend the night in Mexico and return to Lakeside the following day? Or if anyone knows how the same can be accomplished without that 12 hour border run. I certainly do not want my TIP to expire and my current Mexican vehicle insurance to no longer be valid.
  15. Lots, all sizes, at El Torito.
