  1. Yes, the peso is very correct and dignified now. Blame all those extra ceros on the Mayans.
  2. I´m also am old enough to remember when I would spend $300,000.00 pesos in one of those stores to feed a family of 6 or 7 for a week. That´s right folks, three hundred thousand pesos, and that makes watching the ringing up and getting change even more difficult. Every body has it as easy as "falling off a log" nowadays.
  3. LOL.....by 1998 I had already lived in this area 20 years Here is a quiz for all the people who like to brag about their longevity here. Before Walmart and Soriana, there were 2 big supermercados here with a lot of floor space....What was their name, where were they located and who was the owner? They sold everything that was available in Mexico at the time legally, and if they didn´t have it, you had to make a border run. The owner, a local, became a self made millionaire. (in USD) No cheating Andy P., cause I know you can get the help to find out . 😀
  4. Mis consuegros received their first shot in Mezcala and now have their second, same location. They were notified by telephone, 4 days in advance when to come. That´s in the next Municipalidad east of Chapala. They live in SJC, in the Municipalidad of Jocoteprc, next one west of Chapala.
  5. "THEY" all work for the cartels.....largest employer in Mexico? Out of work drug dealers in the US get Covid stimulus unemployment compensation. Mexican drug dealers in much better physical shape than their US counterparts because of swimming rivers and digging tunnels.
  6. It has been reported, numerous times on this board, and it is.......... Sinovac was developed and produced by the Chinese. What else could you possibly want to know............No phobia like a China phobia.
  7. According to Bisbee Gal, it´s not the efficacy study that´s the problem, it´s the fact that it was made by the Chinese.
  8. Beyond Meat is the brand. Two vegetarian members of my family love them as well as the carnivores. Costco always has them, so suppose the local grocers that supply from Costco might have them. The several local restaurants that prioritize vegetarian/vegan fare is where I would start looking. mudgirl has promised not to "wise up" Wendy´s......😀
  9. And their namesakes don´t seem to have changed much....LOL
  10. Well me, for one!!! I would rather be with the 50% of Brazilians it helped than the 0% it helped, of the people waiting for whatever. It´s like they overheard one Covid virus talking to another, and saying, "don´t stop here because they are waiting for a different vaccine". Bisbee Gal probably wouldn´t take Pfizer if it was produced in China just because it´s Chinese. Her denigration of the Chinese far outweighs her concern of the vaccines. China is there, they have their form of government, like it or not, and that is not going to change.
  11. Is this in Chapala? I´m not familiar with Galeana street in Chapala, only Ajijic.
  12. Well, at least there was truth in this toilet thread.......LOL
  13. Sometimes people just go overboard trying to impress, mostly themselves, and anybody else who will listen, about all their knowledge and wisdom on just about any topic. In this case.....Its all the time.
  14. OK...........but that doesn´t answer my question.
  15. He is her son and I will bet you any amount of money you want to bet that he is!
  16. Why do the good steak houses use fire (wood, charcoal, or gas) instead of electric then? Much less hassle to cook the meat.
  17. You are correct Pete, Ivan, the son, manages the Riberas store and mom, Lulu, is at the SAT location. In many years here, I have never met a better or more knowledgeable farmacéutica than Lulu, except for Hector Marquez, who is long gone.
  18. It is so painfully obvious, what you say, that it is hard to read the complaining about Harry.
  19. The owner of Farmacia Maskaras, Lulu, is usually at the store in SAT, a half block west of the SA Hospital. She knows everything.
  20. Ajijic Electronics......376 766 1171 or 376 766 3371 Las Flores # 2-A Ajijic
  21. Yes, at the Centro Laguna mall. It was never called Interlago mall, so I don´t know what is meant by "still".
  22. Isn´t the Telcel store in the Centro Laguna mall and NOT the Interlago mall???
