  1. No, the restaurant Wael had is not the same one as the Kamellos to which we are referring. Different places. Wael was in Riberas, mountain side. Kamellos was in San Antonio, lake side.
  2. I wonder if by chance this is being operated by the same folks that had the little Arabic restaurant near Super Lake a couple of years ago. Seems it was called Kamello's. Hope so, as I loved that place.
  3. I have had them made at the place mentioned above, beside the old Hole in One.
  4. Yes, either contact Ecologica or if all else fails, call the police. Keep trying.
  5. I know they used to sell Earth Boxes at Huerto Cafe (I think that's what it's called) in Riberas, on the Carretera near Zona Fitness. I don't know if they still do or not.
  6. All I know is Hector's opens pretty early. We usually go to Costco on Sunday mornings and drive by there by 9. They are certainly staffed and cooking at that time, but I don't know what time the first plate is ready to eat. I would think at least by 11. As far as I know, they are only open on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.
  7. As far as I know, those are the two place locally. The best place, of course, is Tonala.
  8. Check HarryB's January 15 posting titled Expat Office Director. There was also an article about her in the GDL Reporter a few weeks back. Her name is Gloria Perales.
  9. I'm also a major Hector's fan, but Carnitas Michoacan is very good, and lots closer to me than Hector's. I'll certainly still go to Hector's sometimes, though.
  10. Let me clarify a little, as I know a bit about this dog. You are correct, she is not currently in crisis, however, she was. This is a dog that the neighborhood had been feeding for quite awhile. Clearly not owned. The neighborhood pooled their money and got her spayed, but no one in the neighborhood is able to give her a home. What they tried (and are trying) to do is to take care of her without her ever hitting a shelter. Had she come to one of the shelters before she'd been spayed, she would have likely been deemed eligible.
  11. Tracey, what many of us do is stock up when we travel NOB. If you can find someone going up, you can have some things shipped to their US destination and carried down with them. I'm flying up in April.
  12. Yes there are leash laws here, but they are not enforced. Loose dogs are common in nearly every neighborhood.
  13. I have never seen Blue Buffalo here, but that doesn't mean it isn't here. Diamond is readily available. There is a new shop in town selling very high quality raw food, an ancestral diet, at pretty reasonable prices. Costco foods are available both at Costco in GDL and in local stores at a markup. I don't think there's much chance you'll get dog food in by plane.
  14. I sincerely doubt you need permission, unless you can get permission from the owner of the lot. I'd hire a couple of guys and get it done.
  15. Yes, I noticed week ago that the Lopez Mateo store is stocking basmati. Made me smile!
  16. I agree completely with Mtn Mama. The only and biggest shelter problem we have at Lakeside is we need more. We could use twice as many as we have. There are dozens of tireless volunteers that put in untold hours in the four shelters Mtn Mama mentions. We at the shelters work very hard to work together and complement each other. There is far too much work to be done to spend precious time criticizing others for their good work. I know there are some out there who criticize those who choose to commit their volunteer work to animals rather than humans. That also I think is unfair. We all do what we do, we all contribute to the betterment of the Lakeside area. Two animal organizations Mtn Mama didn't mention because they are not shelters are Operacion Amor and Operacion Compasion. One does spay and neuter clinics in the Chapala municipality and one does clinics in the Jocotopec municipality. Between the two, hundreds and hundreds of dogs and cats belonging to Mexicans of limited means have been sterilized. Neither of those would happen either without the legions of volunteers that give their time. Can you imagine how many animals would be out there if it weren't for the efforts of all these organizations? Thank you to everyone who participates in even the smallest way.
  17. I tried it today for the first time. Picked up 1/2 kilo of carnitas to go for 110 pesos. Enough food for several meals for two people. Yes, the music out front is pretty loud, but since I took it to go, I didn't care. The man working inside seemed to be enjoying it.
  18. I use Foto Luz in Chapala. The professional photographer that does them on site must be for LCS only. They do not offer that at the Legion, unless things have changed.
  19. Oh, goodness, I fear Macy's, Old Navy, etc do not exist here. Think Liverpool and Sears. My personal favorite is Galerias Mall, but truthfully, I can shop in earnest there for hours and come away with one item if I'm lucky. I do virtually all clothes shopping when I go NOB. Every time I have guests come down, I shop online and have things delivered to them and they bring it with them.
  20. I know a fair number of people under 60 here. I am currently 58, but moved here at 52. My best friend here was 7 years younger than I (she's since moved away). More and more young people all the time. I don't know the answer to your full question, but there are more and more younger people all the time. Lots of younger people manage to continue their work via the internet.
  21. Another vote for Daniel Hernandez at Integrity.

  23. Does anyone know where I might buy fresh dill Lakeside?
