  1. It is the prey instinct, dogs run after anything that seems to be running or running away when they have a high prey instinct.. If you stop they will stop.. but yes it is dangerous to have a large dog lose on the street if he has a high prey instinct. Gardners can be careless about gates and it could have been an accident..Better a dog than a jaguar like they had once in La Floresta

  2. I would not use UPS either,  took them to court twice, nothing but bad experences wth them.. Also they do not have offces in a lot of cities in Mexico. WIthin Mexico I use Estafeta and DHL to foreign destinations.. Fedex s my second choice for foregn destinations.. 

     The mail is iffy in the STates as well. My cousin sent a book to New York from Paris 2 months ago.. she was able to trace the packet to the US but then no tracing... 

  3. oo the the country code then the number

    to call France I dial 0033   but then the numbers in France startwth a zero which  do not dial when abroad so I dial 0033 and 9 digits... I would think each country is a little differnt. WHat country do you want to call.?


  4. I do not know about Europe but if I want to go to France, first I am French so it helps but I have to have a covid test withing 72 hours before leaving or upon arrival at the airport or go into quarantine for 15 days.

  5. Yes it is if you have an idea of how much time it takes to do things, also I need them longer during the dry season because they have to make sure everything is water before he or they leave.. so  it is also why I rather I have one guy who stays twice as long as 2 guys because it gives him time to make sure everything is watered..

  6. I bought my pass in Vera Cruz State and it does not work everywhere.. it does not work on libramientos like the one in Puebla or the one going around Guadalajara, I had to pay several tolls going to PV a month ago or so.

    do not know about US cards

    I do not know what mine is, It is in the car and the car is not around.. sorry.

  7. Zeb ,  thnk people from Chapala Hacendas would be the people to ask and also ask the gardners what they want to do the work you need to have done.. and that should gve you an idea.The best bet is to get someone who s already workng the area and can firt you in his schedule so that it cuts back travelling time  and it is easier to ask the people that gardner is working for what they think of him.
