  1. That is nice to hear that they announced it in the center.. but nothng on our street,  was cooking so I would have heard it.. nothing  where we were..They came back twoor three times but with the rain that followed , it probably had ero effect.. My fish did not die so it probably did not go very far, ..

  2. Go to a denuncia and if you speak good Spanish  make friends with the people there and asjk them what you can do about it, sometimes it works..

    Forget the attitude what if , it does not work..


    My cleaning ladt n Chiapas asked me for help as her daughter in law was skizo and was allowed to keep her child for hr mental health.. So one day she did something that brought in the pokice, she was taken to an asylum and the 4 year old disappeared.. We looked for him for 4 days and no one wanted to help  The women was the grand-mother and it was almost impossible to get information but talking to neighbors an dong some detective work with the help of people e found him.. When the authority stonewall you you have to do your own detective work and make friends with people who can help.. Maybe you can find the bar tender or the tatoo artist that were with him or her and they may know something

  3. So?? Are we supposed to agree it is good to be spryed like cucarachs.. They shoulve a warning system so people could get out of the way... As I said the locals in Chiaps do not take kindly to being sprayed like insects and many president pay for it.. Last week in Amatenango , they was a tumor that the plane that flew overhead at night wwwhad been spraying and people started to gather to get the president and lynch him. People are fed up about the lack of respect they show to people.. Lynchng is on the extreme side but there is no reason they cannot annunce they are coming with a loud speaker or a horn. 

    Yes there is a lot of dengue and they should spray but they should have a warning sustem or fixed days or hours.


    This , you live in Mexico is  bull.. tomgates.. People  in Mexico are not like those of Lakeside who play dead on just about anything, There plenty of communities on the country where the garbage truck announce they come with a bell and where people are warned about spraying. I have lived here for 20 years and in Chiapas for 15 so give me a break , I know a fe things about Mexico.

  4. Did I miss an announcement or there was no announcement made? We were having dinner with all the windows opened when I heard a weird noise.. I listen a few second and realized they were spraying malathion or something that smells like it..  I rushed to close all the windows.. By the time I got to the back of the house it already had gotten inside..

    Makes you feel like some cucaracha, how obnoxious.. They announced that we should stay home at night but they do not warn people when they are spraying insecticide.? 

    Now I know how the indgenous are feelling n Chiapas when the spray trucks are coming around.. Too bad we  are not like them and beat up the president for allowing that to happen.. So what happens if you are on the street walking?? You are forced to walk through an insecticide cloud? 

  5. I have a schwab account where they deposit my SS but theysay they cannot deposit that check... there so they will mail it to our address here.. I just received the letter they sent in May so good luck to the check..

    Ny the way I am a foreigner who was on a green crd and I pay taxes there and I will receive the payment ig it ever comes... That may answer spme questions from other people who are in the same situation.

  6. Situation in Chiapas 

    Totally off from what the government is reporting.

    They want to be in the orange zone  so they do not test, do not accept people with covirus in the hospitals so undercount by 10 times and more and will be in the orange zone.. For those of you who want to go there do not...

    In many indigeeous comunities the covirus is not recognized as real and they think it is an invention of the government , meanwhile they will tell yo that they have hd many people sick and dying of the ENFERMEDAD... with fever, toss and loss of taste but that they have a special tea that cures it.. They also say that it is over and that the people who were to die, died and the others are recupering...

    The situation down there is a little like a twighlight zone pretty scary...

    For those who are curious check the article Chiaps the dead they did not count-- from 35 death in  onth they went up to 370 but none of it is reported as covirus...

  7. no it is not a waste of time or money to file a denuncia and it s your duty to file one , without it the chances of people getting away for what they did is even greater....I would enroll the help of SPencer  for reporting and maybe some type of investigator if Spencer knows one worth the money. I sure would not offer money in general, people are not pet and you need to offer a whole lot money  which makes you appear on the radar of not so nice people..

  8. Also if you have the person phone number you can ask them to check ther phone records when you do the denuncia.. That may give clues.. Unfortunately , they will not share what they findout IF they actually follow up.. It is really discouraging to look for someone here..

  9. it looks like you are looking for someone  who disappeared.. maybe in a hospital.. Do not forget the morgue if you have details or some foul play was involved.. Good luck on the denunca , they do not make t easy and ther response was underwheming a few years ago.. Hopefully they are more on the ball now...

  10. It probably is vastly underestimated everywhere in the world.. I know many people in France and Mexico who had it and never reported it.. That is not uncommon for the people who can stay home and get over it. There is no medecine for it and no cure so unless it san emergency why even go tho the doctor.

  11. Mexico has a whole has done a terible job at protecting its people and taking the epidemy seriously. I lost another friend yesterday in Oaxaca.. The situation is awful in Southern Mexico.. between the dengue,. the covid and other zika and chickungunia many people are sick,do not see the doctors  or go to the hospitals so they do not get reported. The situation is really scary and no one seem to really care... The country is reopening just when the situation is going worse and there seem no real effort from the government toenforce mask wearing and social distancing.. Lets all forget itexist and burry our head in the sand and think it will go away.. Good luck to all of us..

    I am not fear mongering , I am just seeing and reporting what I see.

  12. correct the virus attacks other organs than the lungs.. my brother  was doing better on the respirator when he died...When people get put on respirators they are just about gone as they cannot breath  any longer or are about to get there. Also surviving the respirator may not be the best thing to wish on people, the respirators do a lot of damage to the body as well.. Better pray for no one to need a respirator.. Oxigen ok but respirator, no thanks- It is a last ditch effort to save a life , no matter what.

  13. one hour go we were going west and were n front of the wne storeon the carratera and saw 3 ambulances and 4 unmarked pckups with blasting sirens going east...

    We had to stop as a car was out of commission on the carretera and there was no room for us and the ambulances going towards us..


    Did not see anything going west..We were going west and no one passed us.

  14. You guys live in a bubble if you think maid is dememeaning.. and that we live like colonials. A friend of mine who is indigenous has not one but two live in maids.. She pays 800 pesos a week and the chachas get room and board and works from 7 till 4 with Saturday afternoon off and Sunday. and that is the real world in Chiapas.

    I know many Mexicans who have chachas and live-in chachas and this has nothing to do with slavery or the colonial times, it is life in Mexico.Whether the women are working all day or part time they are called chachas.

  15. You give a raise for showing up?? How nice..  I pay the gardeners the going rate and right now they get by the hour the same as a mason so I m not anxious to give them a raise  especially since I have to keep an eye on them and  keep them in tract. If they were making 50 pesos an hour it would be different but at 70 they are getting overpaid in compataison to what does a mason.. So everyone is in a differnt boat..
