  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. C, orrect in France the death rate represent the people who died in the hospitals, does not include all the death on old folks homes and at home .I have to say that people in Europe tend to go to the doctor and hospital much more readily than the people in Mexico but still I do not belileve that any of the numbers reflect the reality.

    In Mexico, none of the indigenous who are getting sick( in spade) go to the hospital because of the  refusal to believe that the ashes they will get from the hospitals  are the ones from their love ones.So they die at home and are not included..

  4. the going rate in Ajijic is 70 pesos an hour. I have hired  3 different gardeners and that is whar they asked for. so for 5 hours gringohombre the price would be 350 pesos.. not 500 pesos.. I also found out that one guy in 5 hours does more than 2 in 2.5 hours.. I had 2 coming for 2.5 hours 3 5imes a week and now I have one of them for 4hours a day 3 time a weeks and he accomplishes more in 4 hours than 2 in 2.5 hours...

  5. Many businesses now ask for facturas when they buy from their suppliers because it allows them to deduct their expenses .. If they do not then they cannot claim their expenses, Each business man can decide what he or she wants to do..Right now I get a lot of phone calls from artisans who wonder how to give  facturas so things are changing

  6. Yes ths is typical of this area.. no one seems to be out n the morning wahng the sde walks lke people do in so many town and yes they do fix sidewalks in other comunties.. here no one wants to do anythng, they do not even respect the garbage tradton followed n so many towns, the garbage only goes out when yo hear the bell, here they dump pn the strret every day at whatever hour and wash ther hands from t and no one says anything..so the streets look like the dump.

  7.  do not know about Jalisco but n Chapas they do not test unless you have symptoms and you have to pay plenty to go to private labs and the dpt of health there told me that there was no acredited lab to do tests in the State but some labs say they are approved so who knows.

    Meanwhle people wat and wait to get tested and the majorty do not bother..  know whole families who had the vrus and never bothered wth doctors or tests. They got better watng t out and drnkng medcnal teas the curanderos gave them. Ome people de and life goes on..So  know first hand that in CHapas  the cases reported are a fraction of the cases.. WHe  asked where to get oxigene,  got the standard answer.. chaval, mayuk , moyuk, no hay.. they only word    I know in  all the local languages because you hear it so often there...

  8. Thank you for the doctor s name it is always good to get everal  opinions. I had all the tests XRAYS, MRI and the test where they stick needles on you and  electricity to check the reactions so no more tests  needed just opinions.. After talking to my brother , I pretty much made up my mind that surgery is out until my muscles atrophy.. but one of these doctors may know of good therapy..

  9. I was at home depot yesterday and they only let a limited number of people at a time  , you have to keep your distances in the line outside, have a mask etc.. so not all Tapatios are careless.. maybe they feel safer here and bring the whole family.. this how people contaminated themselves in SPain, Italy and France, family reunion, just because you know people well does not mean you can trust they do not have the virus but life goes on..

  10. In Europe they say that the current strain is more contagious and less deadly so hopefully they are right and hopefuly it will evolve in that direction so we can all get it and survive it.

    . Only people who have not been affecte personally make fun of it.. the others know better.
