  1. You will have to ask Henry Albrecton, the developer of Chula Vista, what it meant in 1950 Mexican Spanish. I know for sure he wasn´t cubano.
  2. Ferret, there isn´t any "Upper" Chula Vista and "Lower" Chula Vista except in the geographical location sense. All just one Chula Vista and one well and one water system.

  8. Besides Mexico, Sinovac is the primary vaccine in Chile, Brazil, Turkey, and a bunch of SE Asian countries, including Singapore and Hong Kong, which are not so called third world countries. Are you saying people from these countries can not travel to countries that don´t offer Sinovac?
  9. It may be a "puente" for a lot of businesses and individuals in Santa Cruz de la Soledad, just east of Chapala pueblo.
  10. mudgirl, I read all your posts and agree with most of them....BUT If you have any faults or errors, which most of us have to one degree or the other, it is.......... Making mountains out of mole hills....IMHO
  11. Very good summary and advice gimpychimp- I had one daughter that attended the Chapala Prepa and went on to achieve the highest grade average at ITESO for her carrera at graduation. Another grand daughter, attneded Cervantes, a top private prepa in GDL with top grades but couldn´t make it into U de G Medical school. Go figure!!!............Just goes to show you....nothing is certain.
