  1. Here's the text from a bulletin that I received yesterday. In following the directives from the latest announcement from the governor of Jalisco, we would like to announce the plans for the Lake Chapala Society. Following the governor’s directive, we are postponing all activities at the Lake Chapala Society from January 16 for the rest of the month. The government has stated that businesses who violate these two week restrictions will be fined and further legal actions may be taken. For those who bought tickets to the sold out Branden and James Concert, we are rescheduling f
  2. I used the WhatsApp contact procedure twice last summer, then again in November. Cancelling my service following the WhatsApp procedure was in November. I originally got directions on using the procedure from a notice on the gate at the Telmex office. Maybe they changed the procedure and have a notice of their new procedure on their gate at the office. Good luck.
  3. I have seen it at Toyo Foods in Guadalajara. Have not been there since last February, but it's a popular product. They had several varieties, some quite pricey. You can message them on Facebook or give them a call - 333-616-6511. https://www.facebook.com/toyofoodsmx /?ref=page_internal
  4. I recently used WhatsApp on 331 520 9621 to cancel phone and internet. I texted my phone number and a photo of the top part of my bill, explaining what I wanted to accomplish. A rep texted back in English and I answered a couple of questions. Later, the rep told me to bring my equipment to the gate of the Ajijic office. Upon arriving at the Telmex gate, I texted that I was there. A rep came out to receive my equipment and that was my experience in cancelling my Telmex account. I made sure to pay my bill before I contacted them. Also suggest that you wait until next week before contacting them.
  5. Thanks for the heads up. I've been to Al Meraj in Guadalajara and enjoyed the food.

    The closest thing to wafers that I've seen locally are at Lakeside Market, just east of Panino Restaurant. It's 70% Turin chocolate. I used to get 70% Mexican chocolate wafers at the abastos, but have not been there this year. Rony, the chocolatier, used to sell wafers by the kilo, but I don't think that he's making chocolate products anymore.
  7. I cannot say from personal experience. She's done buttons, small tears and replaced a strap on a canvas bag for me. Her sign says that she does all types of alterations to pants and is also a dressmaker.
  8. I have had some minor work done at Costura Expres at 123 Colon in SAT. Below is a link to a map of their location. If you click on the street view, you can get a closeup of their sign that includes a phone number. https://www.google.com/maps/place/Colón+123,+San+Antonio+Tlayacapan,+45900+Ajijic,+Jal./@20.2959485,-103.2430284,17z/data=!4m13!1m7!3m6!1s0x842f413589f9ea9f:0xa885df6c6235010b!2sColón+123,+San+Antonio+Tlayacapan,+45900+Ajijic,+Jal.!3b1!8m2!3d20.2959209!4d-103.2431505!3m4!1s0x842f413589f9ea9f:0xa885df6c6235010b!8m2!3d20.2959209!4d-103.2431505

  10. I have gotten good information and help from the Telmex 800 number in the past. This time, I needed to re-activate an account that was in arrears. I called and got a good English speaker and asked him if I pay the bill at OXXO, would the account automatically be activated. He was not sure and offered to connect me with the billing department, but doubted that an English speaker would be available. I thanked him for his help and told him that I would pay it and see what happened. I paid the bill and waited until the next day to see what happened. Nothing changed, so I entered 331 520 9621
  11. Thanks. artsnob. Trying to minimize the worry. Did you receive your new passport the same day as your first appointment or did you have to return for it? Is it a standard passport or is it a modified "emergency" one? Any information that you can provide will be greatly appreciated.
  12. My passport expires before my flight to the US in mid-October. After I made the reservations, I sent an email to the consulate for information and they replied that I should send another email requesting an appointment two weeks before my flight. I have the photos and the forms that I need, but have no idea what to expect when the time comes to email the renewal request. Would like to hear from some folks that have first hand experience recently renewing their US passport. Thank you.
