  1. google vacunacion de adultos mayores en jalisco and it will give you all the sites where you can get vaccines, what papers you need and the days but today seem to be the last day and then they will have a new schedule. Today if you want sinovac you can get it in Ixtlahuacan  at the sport unit on Ramon Corona Pfizer is given in places in Guadalajara, Tlaquepaque Tlajomulco and other places

  2. Lemon grass can be grown in a pot easily and so can the keffir lime tree and any herb if you can get the seeds. You do not need to denude  a keffir lime tree you just take what you need.. I cook thai and vietnamese food several times a week so it is possible. If you are really picky you can get seeds for what you cannot find and grow them, You can grow almost everything here.  In Chiapas I find a lot of what I need in the medecinal stands rather than in the herb places. The basil  and rosemary are used by the witch doctors so you only find them in the traditional medecine places, same with lots of herbs. 

    Buy a keffir lime at the nursery behind Super Lake grocery store in San ANtonio and buy lemon grass as well and keep them in pots. 

  3. I sent a whatsapp  the person in charge of vaccination  in Chapala this morning  and told her I had to leave  for a job in another state and asked her if she could get me an idea of the schedule for the second shot in the Chapala area.. and this is what she said.

    Buen dia, aun no tenemos fecha

    Hay que estar al pendiente en redes sociales


    So no date and check the social media.  Not very useful when you have to start a project and buy a plane ticket.

    I found out they were vaccinating in San Cristobal de las casas with the second shot.. That the first and second are the same and that if I missed this one I could go first on the from 50 on.. Down there they have the news all over the radio and they have numbers people actually answering the phone. Big difference. So I am flying out Friday.

    Sorry to say but the handling of the vaccination here is pretty pitiful.

  4. Lakeside , it may not be acceptable up north but reallly who cares we are not up north and the vaccine  you went to take up north is putting more at risk to the South African variant and who knows what else.. We are all gunea pigs in this major experiement of human beings in search of a solution.

    Astrazeneca has been stopped in France except for people between 50 and 65.. My nephew whois 33 and got the first vaccine has just been told he will receive pfizer or Moderna as his second vaccine and was assured  it was ok.. Not sure how they can say it is ok to mix vaccjnes when no one seems to know what is really going on.. Everyday we hear new theories and discover more weaknesses to the whole system.

    I will take the second vaccine of Sinovac when they come... and then will continue social distancing and wearing a mask.. and then we will see what happens.. I believe that at this point we are all guinea pigs including the Pfizer and Moderna receivers.. so Inch Allah

  5. You can get covid after being vaccinated, just not a very  serious one.. although according to what I hear in Europe there are many many cases of nasty sequel to covid even very light ones.. Germany is considering discontinuing Astrazeneca and using Sputnik . 

    Nothing on the various Chinese vaccines so far except that they are not recognized if you want to travel to Europe and same goes for Sputnik so far.

  6. Have you tried the arbust that only smells at night? It has little white flowers and the smell is pretty strong.. Of course nothing smells very strongly here because of the dryness, plants smell so much better in Vallarta  with the humidity. What they call tobacco plant has really nice smelling whote flowers as well.  I bought a bunch of differnt types of gardenias in Vallarta because of their smell but you cannot smell them here..

  7. I do not know but google says the the nighjar are living in Asia, if that is the case I doubt that it s that bird. There are very few birds making that kind of noice at night..

    A few years ago I went crazy with an alarm and it was some kind of alarm from the water company according to the locals.. Not sure if that was true but it did drive me crazy.. Ask the locals arounnd your house what it is.
