  1. I am looking for a back specialist who is not a surgeon as surgeon tend to want to operate.. I have seen one of those now I want a second opinion.
  2. 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.
  3. I have been very happy with Chopo until I went to the new place.. They did a lousy wirk on my exrays and two of my doctors daid the xray were very bad..I need new xrays.. any recommendations? My doctors say Guadaljara but I cannot go there for a while
  4. maybe that truck was the exception .. he he
  5. by now the op is probably fluent or never will learn... 3 years to learn a language is about right..
  6. this is why the attorneys advices to end up in good terms with emplyees is important.. you still need an attorney´s advice on what you should do..or should not do.
  7. yes the guy is fishing, ask an attorney , it is cheap and works out better in the long run.
  8. People who lost their money were not paying attention and trusted someone they should not have trusted. If you take care of your own business without delegating to someone you do not lose your money in a Mexican bank. We have had accounts in Mexico for 20 years without any problems. We bank on line from the US via Schwab and with Bancomer and Banamex without any problems.
  9. If he worked for yo and you quit paying him you owe him severance...if he did not quit.
  10. Azucena did the finiquito for our gardner of 20 years.
  11. Upfron, I said talk to them and ask permission. , they have the right to say no and if you go anyways you are trespassing... If you want to challenged their ownership go to a lawyer.. It has been tried before..and so far , they do what they want. They say it is ejidal land but they also say they have some kind of grant from the Spaniards which would make the land communal as Ejidos were formed during the Revolution so I am not sure what the land is.. There is a ejidal house near the school in upper Ajijic.. or was.. Maybe some of it is comunal and some of it ejidal, who knows..either way
  12. reminds me of people buying houses near an airport and complaining about the noise.. Do notlive near a road going down hill. Better noise that horrible accidents at the light at Walmart..
  13. That is why I put indigeous with quotation marks.. they have lost all indigenous customs , it seems, language and culture.. went to one of the meetings with indigenous from Chiapas one day to hear what they had to say and the indigeous from Chiapas said to me , these people are not indigenous.. if you have comunal land, , you take care of it, you cultibate it , you do not sell it and if you do not care of it, you lose it but that is between them and the locals aand as foreigners or strangers to the area we have nothing to say
  14. It is their land so if they tell you you cannot hike there and you cannot come to an agreement with them , the answer is that you are trespassing if you go there, pretty simple , NO? Go to your lawyer if you do not agree.
  15. Never argue with them, just talk to them and come up to an agreement or not.. . . When I go to Oaxaca I stay iwith indigenous in an indigenous town and one day the family decided to go hiking on the rancho, (land of the village) and hike onto the next rancho. One of the man with us was an elder of the village.. When we got to the next village he went to pay his respect to an elder of the neighboring village and ask permission to hike the rancho. We got the ok.. then I realized that the village had a public road crossing it so there were plenty of strangers coming and going there witho
  16. My friend is from Oaxaca and works for Tapatios in Ajijic so I do not think you can get more Mexican than that.
  17. ok if you only have a small tree , you cannot do it on full grown trees
  18. That is the way it is done in Chiapas.. I do not seet done that way in Ajijic A Mexican friend of mine helps me finding people and gardeners demand to be paid by the hour.now and good luck on finding a good one.
  19. "Indigeneous" people own some of the land , not all of the land..
  20. the black fungus comes from scale which is difficult to wipe out. To prevent the insects from settling spray with watr garlic and chile, that s what my indigenous friends told me to do.. It is more preventve than curative but it helps when the insects that become scale fly around in the spring. Nor we have the palomits or little moth looking things that are everywhere...
  21. You can find zatar in Guadaljara and Ajijic.. and anywhere where there are Libanese Mexicans
  22. Maybe you could do my garden and I would cook for you He He I do Thai, Vietnamese, Arabic , Persian and French food so you would not get bored..
  23. The reason I hire people is that I want to enjoy my morning coffee without walking around and doing things someone else can do and want to be free to dosa´´ear a few month at a time without have to worry about the garden...Right now I am training a young guy, we will see how he will be doing...
  24. Bancomer has payed my telmex and cfe bills for the last 20 years and I never had a problem..
