  1. I've had some very old hiking boots re-soled, as well as some more minor stuff done. I have been happy with the work. The new soles weren't vibram, but stood up well even with the poor quality hiking trails in this area. They extended the life of the boots by several years, at a fraction of the cost of new boots, which aren't available locally anyway.
  2. There is a shoe repair place just off Colon in Ajijic. It's one block above the Carretera, on Felipe Angeles, about 3 or 4 doors east of Colon, on the mountain side of the street. Colon is one way heading south, so you would go up Marcos CastellaƱos (one block east of Colon) and turn left at the first street. The show repair is towards the west end of the block.
  3. The Guadalajara INAPAM office in the Federal Palace has now replied to my e-mail. Their initial e-mail said all appointments were taken through the end of March, and that they were booking in April, though they would look for earlier appointments. A follow-up e-mail from them notified me of an appointment in mid-March.
  4. My card is becoming illegible, and the bus ticket offices will sometimes not accept it now.
  5. I am at Lakeside, but I contacted the lady at DIF in Chapala, and she does not have the materials to issue the cards. She said she would let me know when she does. Since I need to go to Guadalajara anyway, I thought I might try to get the card there if I could get it sooner. I know in the past it has been difficult to get cards in Chapala. They receive only a certain number.
  6. Does anyone know if the INAPAM Office in the lower part of the Federal Palace in Guadalajara is open? Their website implies that they are, but several attempts to phone them went unanswered. I also sent an e-mail, but there was no reply to it. I'm trying to find out if I need an appointment to obtain a new INAPAM card.
  7. Does anyone know specifically if Santander in Chapala will be open tomorrow, Thursday, January 6th?
  8. Thanks. I'll follow your suggestions.
  9. What days are these available, and what time of day? Thanks.

    Niisa's open?

    They were open at lunch time today.
  11. Thanks, Rony, for this info. We'll head into Chapala soon.
  12. Thanks. They do the best ribs!
  13. Thanks, Rony. Given that the social distancing directive has been extended, I assume the closure will be as well.
  14. Does anyone know if Jose's Place on the Plaza in Chapala is open for take-out meals, and if so, what hours? Thanks.
  15. When I applied through a facilitator nearly 14 years ago, my IMSS paperwork was also put under my maiden name, though all my other ID is under my married name. It was never an issue, until quite recently when I tried to book an appointment on-line for the local clinic. You have to enter your CURP and your IMSS ID number. Of course, no match was found because the names were different. I asked in the office at the local clinic how I could remedy the situation. The young fellow gave me a sheet of paper with the instructions of how to do it through the IMSS website. There was a form to fill out, and I had to scan my official IDs plus a translated copy of my foreign birth certificate (which I had from my initial application). A Tramite number was issued, and a few days later I received an e-mail from IMSS telling me to check the Tramite on-line for the outcome. There was a letter saying the procedure had been completed and I only needed to print out the letter and go to the local clinic for a new booklet with the updated name. There were no fees involved.
  16. The phone number on their Facebook page is 765-4546.
  17. Yes, shortly after 7:00 p.m., and it definitely sounded like an explosion. We live near Lazaro Cardenas and Revolucion, and it sounded like it was just west of us. Lots of sirens. I could smell smoke from my front door, but that could have been from a street bonfire at this time of year, or a wood-burning fireplace.
  18. What is the current procedure then for IMSS Renewal? It looks like it is not necessary to go to the office/clinic in Chapala first, nor to have Infantil photos done. What paperwork is required for presentation in the IMSS Office on Independencia Norte in Guadalajara? Thanks in advance.
