  1. I live in CHiapas most of the year and anyone who claim there is no covid there is full of S..Many of my indigenous friends got covid in May and june.  Two doctors from the IMSS hospital on 5 de Mayo in Tuxtla just died and 3 others are fighting for their life. I hear about covid problem every day.. Who ever is claiming no covid in Chiapas is lying. The state is not green but yelow and Yellow only because none of the indigenous are reporting anything,

    The grass is always greener on the other side but in July when I asked my neighbor where to get oxgen, he told me there isn t any,..

    Yesterday a friend just told me his friend was in the hopital in a very serious condition. My neighbor quit driving taxi in San Critobal because 4 of his friends died of covid in a month and on and on..my other neighbor accross the street died of covid a month ago.. No COVID in Chiapas?? Get serious.

    Growing up in Geneva, Switzerland we could buy marshmallow candy covered in chocolate  from the local grocery store. They were called "tete de negre" which translate to "nigger head" and no one ever blinked an eye. (The packaging had the name on it as well). 

    tete de negre was not a racist name.. "Negre "in the 40´s and 50´s was the equivalent of negros  and negroes that is what blacks were called. "Negre" was only racist or insulting if preceded by "sale"..

    Black in France in the 40´s and 50´s were totally accepted and liked.  Most of them were artists or wealthy students from the ex colonies.. We live next to a building owned by Senegal. all the people there were rich Senegalese students and most of the ended up marrying white women, usually blond .. either natural or not..

    With the civil rights in the States .." negre" became a bad word and "Noir""Black" and with the arrival of many poor black migrants there is a resentment against them but that is relatively recent...  

    Blacks in France suffered from reverse racism they were liked, at least in Paris and inter marriage was not frowned upon.

  4. The first Japanes arrived in Acapulco in 1613. He wa a Samurai from the city of Sendei. I helped a Japanese tourist agency work on a promotion  between Japan and Mexico for the 400 year anniversary.. Sendei makes small dolls called kukoshi and they shpped a bunch of these dolls to Mexico to have Mexican artisans decorate them and held exhibition  in Japan with these dolls.. In CHiapas i the SSoconuco there is a town that is mostly Japanese... I know someone who is part of a Japanesefoundation who is helping kids further their education.. In Chiapas we have descendents of the CHinese that were brought in to build the railroad.. theymostly live in Tapachula, Japanese who live in the Soconusco and Koreans, a small group was brought in to Tuxtla and their decendeant are called chinese but it is obvious by their last names that they came from Korean imigrants.

  5. I love hotels or motel and do not care for B and B..  At one time in our lives we lived in a nice apartment in San Francisco  but we & Bwe wanted to see trees and be in the country once in a while so for a year we spent time on free time in B and bs. After a year of this we bought a house in the wine country..

     We soon learned how to hate all the friendly host  giving us  information we did not want or need.. We like the privacy  and freedom hotels give you  ,  I can see renting a place for a month without the friendly host so we can cook and feel at home but as a rule gie me a hote or motel any day.

  6. Yes get a lawyer and good luck.. !5 years ago someone defrauded us and I had all the proof on e-mails, well, e.mails were not admissible in  court in Chiapas in those days.. so I had no proof..Also the best advice I got out of the lawyer was if they lie you lie... .. Court is not a great place to go. to in Mexico if you want to retain your sanity..
