  1. It may be helpful for you to know that you may have to return for another inspection before a year goes by. For instance, my license plate ends in the number eight and I will need to go back for another inspection in September or October. After that, the inspection will be on a yearly basis. This is a photo of a poster at the inspection station.
  2. I was at the emissions testing site in Ocotlan yesterday. The service was efficient and friendly. In and out in about 40 minutes.
  3. Here is a recent thread about Villa Monet.
  4. Día de la Constitución. http://www.bajainsider.com/article/dia-de-la-constitucion-constitution-day-february-5
  5. Here is the lunch/dinner menu from their FB page. The breakfast, drink and dessert menus are also posted there.
  6. I was in close contact on December 26 with someone that subsequently developed COVID on January 3. I just found out about it at 4 pm today. I did not think there was much chance that I was infected, but wanted to be certain. I drove to Walmart and waited in line to get tested. It took about half an hour. I was back home ar 4:45. I got the email around 6 pm saying that the test was negative. One thing of interest was that the woman doing the testing told me that they are getting about 100 positives a day. These are the same two women that administered the test for my trip to the US in early October. They are very efficient. They tested about 20 people while I was there. All were Mexicans, I was the only gringo.
  7. This information is from Sonia Diaz's website. Under Mexican Consulate Pre-approval: "You must tell the consulate staff you intend to retire." Under Permanent Resident Visa: "Some consulates will not provide Permanent Resident pre-approval to those under retirement age. For those who are Temporary Residents and living in Mexico, you may become a Permanent Resident in less than 4 years if of retirement age." You can see her website here: http://www.soniadiaz.mx/immigration---visas.html
  8. I used to patronize Canela's Cafe, then the burrito place that closed. There's a farmacia there now. On the other end is the piroshki place and a plastic surgeon in between. They also rent rooms. They have never charged me so I guess I've been lucky.
  9. I don't pay for parking when I patronize a business there.
  10. One of my neighbors had a Canadian plated car that she donated to Cruz Roja. It did take several weeks to finalize. This was in the last 2-3 months. She now has a car with Mexican plates. All of this was accomplished without her leaving Chapala. I do not know the details of the donation.
  11. Luis is the guy in the photo on the right in the red boat. He is a fishing guide and he owns the pet store on Zargoza in Chapala. You can get in touch with him there. A friend of mine has caught a ten pound and an eleven pound three ounce bass in Lake Chapala. The largest one that I have caught was six pounds. Someone that has not caught a big bass before may be jealous and denigrate this great sport fish.

  12. Dr. Ernest Codman originated the Codman's Pendulum exercises for patients that have had shoulder surgery. The exercises are designed to be used as the first post-operative treatment to help prevent seizure of the joint during healing. I had shoulder surgery in 2002 and the exercises were prescribed for me shortly after release from the hospital. Dr. Codman was born in 1869.

    The point is that it's a very good restaurant, quail or not. Also wanted OP to know that the restaurant is only open on weekends.

    I have not been to Borrego Al Pastor El Cantarito in awhile and did not have quail there. It's worth a visit anyway and is only open on weekends.
  15. Here is a map with directions from Centro Laguna Mall in SAT to the address in the OP's first post. https://www.google.com/maps/dir/Centro+Laguna,+Libramiento+A+Chapala,+San+Antonio+Tlayacapan,+Ajijic,+Jalisco,+Mexico/Regional+Hospital+La+Barca,+Venus+84,+Col.+Fraccionamiento+del+Sol,+47910+La+Barca,+Jal.,+Mexico/@20.4272517,-103.0247466,11z/data=!4m14!4m13!1m5!1m1!1s0x842f414aa10778d1:0x6ee6c8566c4451dc!2m2!1d-103.2435627!2d20.2986507!1m5!1m1!1s0x842ec23e219c3219:0xc13e8daece2c7e79!2m2!1d-102.5537328!2d20.3005574!3e0
  16. Go to the cashier inside Soriana. Tell them that you want a prueba de antigeno. The cost is 489 pesos. Take your receipt to the modular building in the parking lot and they will administer the test. My results took 40 minutes, which they sent to my email.
  17. Thanks for the tips. No luck so far. Thank you, artsnob, for the kind offer. If it works out that I can get one from you at a later date, it would be much appreciated.
  18. Latest label? In 1836? Jim Bowie died during the insurrection against the Mexican government.
  19. Spoken like a true Insurrectionist ! Congratulations ! P.S. But, we already knew that.
  20. I copied and pasted a photo. I see the glass, so I went to a browser where I'm not signed in and then I see the odd link that you see. I'll try it another way. Hope this works. Don't think that I can talk my friend in the US into changing her glass collection.
  21. I want to replace a broken one for a friend in the USA. Looking Lakeside only, do not want to go to Tonala. It's about 4 1/2" high.
