  1. Went to INM today with an address change. They would not accept my letter of old and new address and instructed me there is now a form "escrite bajo protesta" on the same website. I can't find it. Does anyone know how to find this form letter? Thanks in advance.
  2. This person had keys to the complexes and keys to the available apartments. Asking only for information about him specifically.
  3. Looking for a recommendation for Jorge Verdin as a rental agent. He posts various properties on FB but does not seem to own them or be associated with one of the management companies. Please only specific answers regarding this person - not looking for general comments about how to rent.
  4. If you will read my original post - I am looking for people with personal experiences - not what the specs are for converters or specific items. As stated: I know there are a lot of specs to pay attention to I do not need assistance with that. Also, I asked about the converters sold by Sterens and on Mercado Libre, if anyone has purchased those items and found them to be of good quality or not.
  5. Original post is asking for personal experience - not what I already know about stats from research.
  6. Icscats, sorry, but the post is about kitchen countertop appliances from "overseas" (not NOB) that are made for 230V?
  7. Does anyone have any experience with step up converters for use with small kitchen appliances purchased overseas. I know Sterens sells them and there is also a variety on Mercado Libre, but i am looking for recommendations from personal experience. I know there are a lot of specs to pay attention to. I am hoping I won't want to have to replace all of my small countertop kitchen gadgets if I don't have to. Thanks in advance.
  8. Luis from Bennos opened his own shop. It is up close to Pancho's Deli LAKESIDE COMPUSHOP+REPAIR Hidalgo 77-3, Planta baja, Riberas del Pilar, 45906, Chapala, Jal. (376) 688 1354 (332) 340 7501
  9. Just a comment to beware of renting from Four Seasons - Tere Barroso, agent. Offices up by Bennos in the same strip mall as Lake Taco. She is very charming but difficult. I have been trying to get my promised deposit refund since September. She said she wired it but I never received it and Tere has refused to provide any receipt for the transaction. As it is over $14,000 pesos, it is not something I want to walk away from. Just a heads up. There are better property managers at Lakeside.
  10. Just add him to your "ignore" list and you won't see his comments - just that he posted something.
  11. I have gone by an optometrist/eyeglass shop in Chapala several time and as I recall they have a descent selection of frames. I believe it is on Degollado several blocks east from Madero on the north side of the street I am thinking in the block(s) between DIF and the post office. Please excuse any incorrect terminology.
  12. I have one extra I will sell. 100p San Antonio If you are in Ajijic, the Dollar Store used to have them in the back where all the bins are in the center "aisle"
  13. Most of the money transfer services that say "no fees" get their fees by giving an unfavorable exchange rate. I have checked into a lot of them and what I have found is that "free" usually costs a lot more than paying a fee somewhere else. I am not saying Chase is doing this, but it is worth checking their international rates before using the "free" service.
  14. I have traveled extensively in the last seven years between the US, Mexico, and Africa, and almost always with a one way ticket. Various airlines. And yes, often it will say that a roundtrip ticket is required. But I have never been questioned or required to purchase an exit ticket.
  15. Super Laura (sp?) has spices. Some of them are not marked so I ask at the counter for what I want - en espanol - pimenton - they come in little bags and are not very expensive.
  16. I have only been here for six months, have made no special arrangements with any seller, have ordered directly on the ML web site, and every delivery has come FedEx.
  17. Everything I have ever ordered from Mercado Libre has been delivered by Fed Ex. And it has worked perfectly.
  18. At the east end of San Antonio, heard/felt a big boom but nothing rattled.
  19. I just printed a form from the IRS web site. It came out perfect. My printer on "page setup" was actually set to 95% but on the next tab "options" it is set to Ignore Scaling and Shrink to Fit Page" If I can help by downloading the pdf forms for you, I would be happy to do so.
  20. Have you checked the settings for your printer to make sure the scaling is set @ 100%.
  21. You make your appointment online. The instructions are on Sonia's website.
  22. Doesn't the American Legion in Chapala also offer this service - to anyone?
  23. Is there any parking at the bus station for a few days or couple of weeks?
