  1. What is Oaxaca Francais? French roast?
  2. only 80 plus die..on ventilators.. That is what we were told when my brother went on on and indeed he did die.. There are also nasty sequels from them when people survive.. People have to be put n a coma to be able to go on them and many thngs can go wrong.&00 ventlators means 480 deaths...Pretty scary
  3. was stopped with a friend from CHiapas when I came back from Chiapas, I did not have an ID showing I lived in Chapala and neither did my friend. I explained my case to the police and we were let in.. The police was friendly and very well mannered.. I have o complain about their behaviour. If you are agressive chances are that the answer will be agressive as well.
  4. May Day is bigin France, it is a mixture of the celebrations of the ancient celtic rites with women´s day.labr day and it is a big day for the communists ,it is all known as the day of the lily of the valley where everyobe goes and wishes lots of happiness and luck to everyone they know and offers the Ñiñy of the valley to their vamily and friends, it is a really nice day.
  5. Thanks .it looks like my husband wll be eligible since I have a SS number, we will see...so far nothing
  6. Recommending exervise os always good but I am afraid that in the case of the virus it is irrelevant.. If you are a man you are more at risk, the virus destroys other organs than the lungs as well so good luck surviving it if your immune system goes crazy. France s researchng right now why smokers die at a way lower rate than non smokers.. They are researching what positive effects nocotine has on the virus so next they will be recommending smoking..so if the virus does not get you the cancer will.. life is rough..
  7. It did not rain enough to wet the cement ,,,it sarted and immediately stopped , no wondr you missed it Johanson
  8. I wonder where I stand... I am a non resident alien married to a US ctizen, I have a SS number and I pay taxes in the US....and I also wonder if my husband will receive anything or not...We will see. I am not holding my breath. Our SS check is made via a deposit in the US...If I pass away my husband will collect my SS because it is larger than his...
  9. In Chiapas I bought some at 14.23 two days ago..The prices here are high in comparaison..
  10. I doubt they can keep up if it really hit. In France the delay right now is 10 days. The coffins with the deads are piled up in refrigerated trucks. My brother is going to be cremated 10 days later and 80km from Paris as Paris is even more behind..
  11. , I do not know about other States but in CHiapas the places where stolen gazoline is sold are multipying faster than the covirus
  12. In Chapas panela is sold in various sizes from small comnes to large ones packed in dry cane leaves and it is common to bring that cone that s about 30 cm to the house of the people who have a wake. It is use to sweeten the chilacayotes , also used in camotes del cerro.
  13. I guess you have never been there on Tuesdays or in the evenings..
  14. Yes,we agree competition helps bringing positive changes..Yes some of the butherthe s were pretty raunchy too...but I guess if you cook the meat the way the Mexican cook beef it wll kill any bug...
  15. Thank you , it is rough especially when there is no way for the family to get together but that is live and it is the same for many people around the world. Every one in the family and friens will lit a candle on their group on face book durng the crremation.. How weird can it get?
  16. beg to dffer, the vegges were rotten and not thrown out untl the big stores came in The same thing happened in TUlum and San ristobal... when the big stores come in there is competition and the smarter merchant adjust and do things they did not do before because they did not have too. One thing, the Soriana fish area smelled terrible but they eventually got it straightened out.
  17. Also sore throat, lost of smell and problems brreathing and a pain in the chest..
  18. In CHiapas piloncillo is known as panela and t s used in coffe de olla and gives it a unique taste.. It is also offerd at wakes alongside cofee. and the forever present cocacola.. It has its unique taste..and is unlike brown sugar.
  19. FOr those who were here before Soriana and Walmart, do you remember the veggies and fruit rotting away in the abarrotes including SL.. I remember that and it changed we the competitions came in.. Thank you Soriana and Walmart. WHen I moved here in 2001 I was shoked how much bad merchandise was up for sale.. The tianguis was fine but not the little stores.
  20. The all testing thing could be a gimick.. and really does not protect anyone but it will resassure customers in countries where the government will let it happen..
  21. It seems that the problem with testing right now , is the lack of kits as well as an overwhemed health system. so it cannot be done on a large scale which skews all the results.... In France only very sick people, and some health workers are being tested.. and there is a lot of healthy carriers in the personel at the hospital.s. which does not help the situation. Going to a hospital should be avoided unless you have an emergency. I know of several people who got the irus from a hospital visit. ,, It will be probably the same in Mexico..
  22. Thanks you for the condoleances.. I mentionned my brother because that is one experience where we know for sure that the tests are not 100% reliable. Also his wife is positive and has zero symptoms, lots of people that would be positive if they were tested are walking around passing it to others without having any idea they are doing it. You may not have fever or flu symptoms and still be a carrier, that is the scary part of these virus. In CHiapas it is the flu season so many people are coughing and have fever and are not tested so who knows who is sick and who is not. It is one of the
  23. Gringo hombre The truth is unknow to everyone including the experts.. People who test positve are positive, people who test negative can be positve.. My brother just died of the virus in France, he was a health worker, was tested twice while he was sick and the test were negative both times. If there are cases Lakeside, no one knows for sure., they may not be but since no one is tested unless they are sick, no one knows and that is the truth. We can contnue to take care of ourselves , not trave,l stay home were masks and take all the precautions and we are safer than if we
  24. This hate of Walmart is an American things, they ar other large Supermarkets and they are ting against each other . If you hate them do not shop there , it is very simple..
  25. Sorry but Walmart is a Mexican corporation and employs many Mexicans who need those jobs..
