  3. Yeso Refractario is for high heat .... just Yeso is for patching
  4. What old bus station in Ajijic? I only the one in Chapala. Old bus station bus .... not a station in Ajijic. Gotta read a little closer
  5. You can also catch the old bus station bus in Ajijic. About a 15 block walk to Guad Centro. New station is in Tonala. Get off the bus about half way to Centro and walk http://www.autobusesycamioneras.com/central-camionera-de-guadalajara.html
  6. A skilled maestro albaniel did my outdoor bathroom floor. It's a skim coat mix that we added color to. Large areas trickier
  7. There used to be a Mazinfo.com message board but not sure it exists now. Here's the Yahoo group https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/MazInfo/info
  8. The film For Greater Glory presents a distorted version of the Cristero [Christ’s Army] War (1926-1929), a civil war between peasant guerrillas defending the Catholic Church and the Mexican state. It is currently being shown in theaters across the US. The film, directed by Dean Wright, hijacks a complex social conflict and turns it into a David and Goliath story of good guys versus bad. In so doing, it whitewashes the historically reactionary role of the Catholic Church in Mexico. One cannot imagine how such an approach would convince or educate any viewer, including those not at all familiar with the history of this conflict. https://www.wsws.org/en/articles/2012/06/cris-j11.html
  9. Bank transfers will most likely have a fee on each end independent of the amount .... not really cheap
  10. Hyway 70 starts a block north of Home Depot From Ameca to Vallarta is mostly down hill
  11. On the Vallarta and San Sebastian side after a storm in 2007 There is no recently opened highway unless you mean after storm repairs http://sparks-mexico.com/Assorted/jalisco/Mascota/index.html
  12. I've never see the Mascota route in bad shape except after a heavy storm when they clean up slides on the Vallarta side. I've never seen heavy traffic. And I hate that Compostela to Vallarta 2 lane death trap more than either highway 70 or 80
  13. Neither Temporal or Permanente ...... what's with the \\\\\\
  14. I think you mean immigration, not a consulate and immigration is in Chapala. If you don't currently have a resident visa you need to start the process at a consulate in your home country.
