  1. Yes Dr. BriseƱo, the cardiologist, works out of there if you have to have a procedure and you chose to go there.. I saw him there two weeks ago, as I was waiting for another doctor. .,
  2. I went thre from Friday to Sunday this week and was dismayed they do not acccept AXA. The rooms are large but the light from the ceiling is awful it is either on or off and blast your face when on.. The nurses were good.. the food awful , it is not one of the best or worseI have been in..and we are lucky there is a place for emergencies. I would not go to the other hospitals .. outside of emerencies, I will go to Guadaljara.
  3. yes it is and unless people are very influential like some of the rich ones in Tuxtla who got help evicting the invadors, the government does not go against the invadors and they get to stay every time..
  4. Land invasion is common in Southern Mexico... I know several cases of both Mexicans and expats who havelost the land they own to the zapatistas, ejidos and others..Buying large amount of land where the locals won small parcels just because you have he money does not seem to be a good idea. In Chiapas at 2h from San Cristobal a cuple of foreigners bought land at the entrance of Tonina and developped a macademia ranch alomg with a guest ranch, they worked the land , employed many locals and helped a lot of people 6 or 7 years later just before the first harvest came in , the zapatistas cam
  5. Another good point you brought up is the outcast category that people with covid finds themselves in. A friend of ours died from it , he lived in an indigenous community and the town shunned the family after that. His sons told me they felt like people must have felt when they had the plague or leprosis.. That too is a tough thing to deal with..His two sons are still having mental problems months later.. Yes the wanting to know where people screwed up is what you see in war zone.. Everyone justifies to themselves why the person who got hurt or killed screwed up and that is a way to justi
  6. Another interesting side effect seems to be depression, I hear about it from France and I see it in the indigenous communities in Chiapas, It seems that men are more prone to it.. it may be the same thing as the long hauler symptoms, I do not know but the amount of depression and the feel bad and or sick symptoms seems to be on the increase. ii.. I would not take any of the medecine advertise as the "cure " in Mexico on a bet. False and misleading ads are filling the papers in Mexico and the internet on a daily basis.. Lots of snake oils salesmen out there and why people would fall for it is
  7. the trick for on demand is for the heater to be close to the place the water will be used otherwise forget it. The engineer who did our house told us that and am glad lsten to him.
  8. They are harmless so that is a plus.
  9. The ATM has nothing to do with the branch
  10. The mind is very powerful and when you are in pain , you welcome anything that works..so if it is placebo , be it.
  11. depends on the desert, if you need granulated it may be a pain to grind it and you just fo as well with regular sugar, the one that is not so refined. The taste of piloncillo s different from the regular sugar, stronger but it may qork out just a well. If you do not have time to get brown sugar, it does not matter anyways...just use piloncillo
  12. In Chapala they asked my god son from Chiapas for a utility bill whih is in our name not his, his credential and 2 wittnesswa... he went out and got 2 policemen to be his witnesses.. he also had copies of his papers..
  13. In this area the weekly markets are called tianguis and the markets in fixed buildings that are open every day are called mercado. In Chiapas all markets fixed or ambulant are called mercado . Wether Ajijic or Chapala all the merchandise comes from the same place the abasto which is the wholesale / retail market in Guadalajara. If you go to both you will notice the same merchants the difference is that the Chapala tianguis is much larger and does not have artesania.
  14. that is what they do in Chiapas and it works...
  15. 33 3100 89200 is the phone of his wife who runs the appointments
  16. go to city hall and get a constancia de domicilio .
  17. bills for cancer treatment in Mexico will eat up your 13 000 in no time, just hope you are lucky and do not need some really serious treatment. I have a Mexican friend who had a wife who had cancer for several years and the treatment ate a whole lot more than that...It is a question of luck...you can gamble or not..
  18. My neighbor in Chiapas was a strong , healthy 52 year old woman. got a light case of covid got 3 strokes in 10 days and died last friday...
  19. happy, it does not matter, if this cheap thing makes one feel safer for whatever reason , let them have their toy or what they need. What do you care if they need it or not?
  20. I buy the ones we iy it. They are really on Amazon.com.mx, they are cheap get here quickly. Do not grab anything heavy as a larde towel or you will destroy it, they are to grab light objects. My husband uses his all the time so , sorry he would not lend it as he ises it all the time. I have never seen them for rent here but I may be wrong..
  21. There is a man that sells lots of different citrus off the carretera on the left handside in west Ajijic going west from Ajijic. I bought a yellow lemon there called limon americano.and they had lots of differents oranges and lemons..and limes a large one with fruit on it was areound 1000 pesos
  22. My neighbor in CHiapas who was 52 and in good health got covid 2 weeks ago and had 3 strokes in 10 days and dies of the last one.. They say that covid causes strokes but who knows.. That death was reported as derame cerebral.. so much for the statistic and cause of death.
  23. You have to look at the trend knowing that the numbers are aproximate.. depending on when the case was reported so , everything is more or less and do not account for people who have not been tested.. , no point getting excite about this unless you have nothing better to do...
