  1. I was at the gym at the time it happened, around 8:00, and passed by on the way home two hours later and the sheet covered body and vehicles were still there. Was told it was a young Mexican guy on the blue motorcycle coming from Chapala and a Mexican driver heading east who crossed into the left lane to pass another motorcycle and didn't see the one coming and they hit head on.
  2. Possibly the sporting goods store behind Black Coffee might have them. They've got a large selection of athletic shoes. I purchased a great pair through Amazon MX Prime and received them in two days.
  3. Looking for information on Three Kings Day in Cajititlan. The articles I've seen says 12 days after Christmas, next Monday 6 January. Any feedback from folks who have been before would be appreciated.
  4. Ishop. Red building just east of Superlake. 766-1933. www.ishopmail.com
  5. Other than the guy at the Wednesday tianguis, does anyone know of a person who does watch repair? There was a man who had a shop by the Chapala bus station but he passed away a few years back. Thanks.
  6. I'm in lower Chula Vista and I'm still getting around 1.66 Download Mbps, 0.24 Upload Mbps. All I get from Telmex is expect huge improvement anywhere from two weeks to two months. Same thing I've been hearing from them for the past six months.
  7. I'm looking for a good welder who can weld an broken aluminum welded rear fender on an electric bike. Thanks.
  8. I crossed at Anzalduas two weeks ago. Plenty of hotel, shopping and eating places between Pharr and Laredo. Left aduana at 7:30 and arrived back in SAT at 6:30. Eleven hours with only minimal gas and bano breaks. Mostly close to speed limit. Paid 1,480 pesos in tolls, 14 toll booths. Easy drive. Used WAZE gps.
  9. I would highly recommend Anzalduas bridge at Pharr, Texas. Crossed a couple of weeks back around 7:30 a.m. and was third in line for TIP and 180 day visitor permit. In and out in 30 minutes or less. Laredo has only gotten worse recently, crossed there two months ago, with all the immigrant activity and all immigrants being detained in Nuevo Laredo. Plus locating the aduana office is a major headache and a number of the border patrol agents in Laredo are complete jerks.
  10. If you cross near McAllen at Anzalduas or Pharr/Hidalgo early morning around 6:30 or 7:00 A.M., you'll likely be very close to the front of the line to fill out your Immigration Permit and TIP forms. Aduana is right there. Very simple process and you'll be on your hassle free way in a half hour or less. Laredo is a totally different story and I'd advice avoid crossing at the Laredo International Bridges I or II at all costs. Google Border Wait Times complete listing of bridges, times of operation and usual wait times.
  11. Any info on where to get a flu shot? Preferably a drop in not requiring a visit to my doctor's office. Thanks.
  12. I've got no sound on my PC and am not savvy enough to troubleshoot and fix. Any computer techs who would be available to come by and help me out? Of course I'll pay for the help. I'm in lower Chula Vista. PM me. Thanks. Problem solved. Had to download driver. Thanks.
  13. Also much easier to locate Aduana and obtain TIP and Visa at Pharr than Laredo.
  14. Would appreciate it if someone knows the daily rate for parking in the parking garage at the GDL airport. Gracias.
  15. I have the dreaded 5:59 a.m. flight on 9/2 from GDL to San Jose, CR via Panama City. Just wondering if two hours before departing flight is sufficient or should I allow more time? Also would appreciate the number of the Miramontes? for an early morning ride to the airport. Thanks.
  16. Anyone have the 3 digit number to reach Telmex and have them remotely check my internet connection or lack thereof? Thanks.
  17. Does the improvement in Telmex internet speed in SAT apply to lower Chula Vista?
  18. Can you purchase the Tag Pase at Oxxo or is it better to call and order one? If you do call and order one are there any English speaking options or strictly Spanish? What is the cost? Thanks.
  19. I had a round, semi hollow, jadeite disk, Aztec or Mayan in origin, no questions about antiquity, only that it would not be allowed because I could pop somebody in the coconut with it, I guess. If I had put a string through the hole in the middle and worn it around my neck I think I wouldn't have had a problem.
  20. Could someone please provide info on how much the embassy notary charges and what form of payment is acceptable? Thanks.
  21. Don't I wish. Three blocks up, Privada de las Penas, 1.7 Download, 0.26 Upload.
  22. I had a US Amazon Prime account but when I relocated back to Lakeside I switched to Amazon Mexico. Can't say enough good things about them. Prime is two day delivery max. Some things that come from the US take longer. I use a US credit card. I'm not sure who the delivery people are but I live in Chula Vista and have ordered maybe four or five items from Amazon Mexico with ZERO problem or delay. They are very good about emailing you with the status of your order or you can go online and check on it. Highly recommend.
  23. Thanks. I'll check with them about when they might be installing this way unless someone on the board knows.
  24. I know this has been posted before but where is the local Ilox office located? Also, does anyone know if they provide service in Chula Vista just up from the golf course and tennis courts? Thanks.
