  1. I’d like schedule a visit to this winery with some friends….Anyone have contact information? I tried FB and Google with no luck
  2. Looking for recommendation and current contact information for mobile dog grooming services
  3. Home recommendations are most welcome… however well-intended general commentary on the topic and judgements are simply not helpful at this point
  4. Thank you I spoke with Happiness Care (Riberas) today. They are full with a waiting list — and charge a basic rate of $40,000p/month ( excludes medications and adult diapers) . my friend has only US Social Security income - approx 25,000p month so that is far beyond the budget.
  5. Looking for suggestions /personal experience for a care home for a friend with rapidly progressing dementia and no family. (Residente Permanente status) . Individual has a very Limited budget ..U.S. Social Security income only . No very serious medical conditions at this point but needs 24/7 oversight
  6. Yes you can go back to the lab at Soriano for a paper copy if you wish…airline will accept paper or smartphone (I take both with me -just in case)
  7. Frankly Anywhere from $400 US to $2,000+US ......you’d really need to define a lot further what you’re looking for #1 what do you think of as a ‘decent area’ ....and what are ‘amenities’ to you (swimming pool? On-site workout area?walkable to gringo grocery store? .close to bus stop............) then # of bedrooms/baths; furnished or unfurnished, in a gated community or not; parking desired (off street, garage, carport ...); in-village (and which village) or farther from the center; yard or no yard; purified water system or not required; US-style kitchen and baths or not necessary etc etc
  8. For anyone interested in Mexican history , along with the history of Mexican passenger trains (for many decades the only way to travel), I highly recommend this amazing book ....if you can find it “Yesterday’s Train - A Rail Odyssey Through Mexican History “ , Terry Pindell , 1997. A review https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/687641.Yesterday_s_Train
  9. I like ‘ Chapala Health Talk ‘on FB for current, accurate, comprehensive & neutral local Covid-related info as soon as it is available and confirmed. I appreciate that some people are reluctant to use FB —and I appreciate the reasons- but like it or not that’s largely how & where the information you’re looking for is communicated to the general public
  10. I’d also suggest printing out the rules you find on the airline website and bringing the printout with you when you go to the airport....it may come in handy should you encounter a rep at check-in who has a different understanding......it happens
  11. Keep in mind any airline might have different requirements...
  12. Went this morning and to my great surprise the bagels are like the real NYC bagels I’m used to - well, very incredibly close at least- and the (warm!) walnut raisin bread loaf is to die for. Very pleasant place , pleasant staff
  13. Went Tuesday Dec 1st to Lydia’s , medical office 1 door east of Vinos America on the carretera in Ajijic. ,$750 for #4 flu shot you must get on the list a pay deposit
  14. FYI, anyone can send mail to the US via Ishop - for a small charge. You don’t need to buy a box
  15. My 7 year old dog has been diagnosed with Addison’s disease. Can anyone speak to their own experience with treatment for their dog locally for this ?
