    Mexicans use two family names, patrinomial and matrinomial, after their given name.

    European derived names are entirely different and do not fit the hispanic pattern, nor do they identify the mother's family name at all.  Note that Mexican women do not change their names when they get married.

    The terms, first, middle, and last names do not apply to Mexican names. 

    Spaniards are Europeans and they use two names..  patrimonial and matrimonial  and there are 26 more countries who each ones have their own way to handle the names of the last names. Actually the rules have changed in France and you can name the kid by the father or the mother s name or any combination but you must have the same combination for all the kids..

    Spaniards are Europeans and they use the paternal and maternal name.. You cannot make wide statements aout 27 different countries and put them all as Europeans.

    México puts gringos last name as the persons middle name. Like John Doe smith. They consider doe  as the last name so if a person went on to S day for Smith were they turned away?

    Mexico does not do anything , you give your names and you are responsible for correcting it if it is not correct.  It is pretty insane to let someone put a name that is not correct on official papers.. Talking about asking for troubles..

  4. Since I have received the Sinovac , I have checked with France, the vaccina is not recognized so it is like I do not have a vaccine for them and will have to do whatever people without vaccine have to do if I go.. Each country is differnt so do not assume anything. As far as Singapour is concerned thay received Chinese vaccines but are vaccinating their people with pfizer. so at least for the people with the pfizer vaccine they maybe given some slacks with the testing...Frankly at this point I am waiting to see what they will do before going..

  5. The Chapala prepa is fine, a boy we helped came out of the CHapala prepa with high grades and went on to ITESO and graduated with top grades, another boy we know wnt to a private school and cjose to go to the Chapala Prepa to get into the University of Guadaljara.. both did very well..

  6. The  doctors told people not to drink for 21 days because they do not know the difference between  regular drinking and excessive  drinking so they err on the side of safety. In France where the population drinks wine with every meal they were not warned against alcohol and nothing happened.

  7. 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

  8. Mexicans make a tea out of the leaves of lemon grass and it is found in markets throughout Mexico at the medecinal stands or in the backyard of people. It is widely sold at the market in Chiapas so I bet you could find it in Guadalajara.. Ginger is everywhere but I have not found fresh galangal here. Not yet...

     

  9. 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. 


  10. 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

    Gracias

    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.

  11. 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
