  1. That was posted in the Mexico General section back on the 17th of July. And it had quite a lot of comments. Eight pages to be exact.
  2. Well Happyjillin you might be in luck. A brand new panadería is opening up near you, right next to banco Santander. Its going to be called Panadería Hidalgo. I don't know for sure what they are going to carry but it sure does look nice on the outside.
  3. I didn't think it was YOU wishing to boycott these trolls. But what do I know.
  4. Seriously, ACD and Bobby Brown are jokes, if you are taking them seriously, you have greater issuses than worrying about boycotting this forum. Trolls will be trolls, the best thing to do is starve them from the spot light.
  5. Peterth, if you are staying at the Chapala RV Park then that is the same one I was referring to.
  6. All I know about this RV Park is from watching this video 2 years ago when it came out. I have never been there before to check it out.
  7. I think near Brisas de Chapala or Chapala Haciendas has a fairly new one with good views of the lake. There is a video about it on Youtube I saw a year or so ago.
  8. Gosh Mudgirl, correct me if I am wrong but I could have sworn that just the other day you were educating Maincoons on how safe flying was due to the air filtration systems and fresh air flow.
  9. Mitch, many people on this board will just tell you to stay put and not travel right now. But the truth is Lake Chapala is most definitely open right now. Just a couple of weeks ago Chapala celebrated its anual tequila festival on the malecón and it attracted large crowds. Everything is open now except for the cantinas and discotecas. And they are supposed to open up again on the first of September. The kids just today returned to in class classes at school finally. Last year was totally virtual for nearly all kids in Jalisco. Tons of foreigners are coming down all the time. I spend most afternoons on the Chapala malecón. And every day I see new faces visiting the area from up North. If you go to Ajijic they are much more serious about face masks. Here in Chapala over half of the people you see on the streets have stopped using them and a large percentage of the mom and pop stores no longer require face mask usage. Mostly only the larger stores that are chains like the Wal-marts, Sorianas, and Oxxo's still require them. I'm just giving you the facts on the ground here. Please don't kill the messenger. On top of that the streets are bustling with human traffic and most people are still unvaccinated in this area. In our population of over 60,000 people we have had only 70 official Covid deaths in the past 2 years since Covid has come out. I guarantee you that there are far worse places to be than our small but beautiful little area here.
  10. Coming from North Carolina when I hear chow chow, in regards to food, I think about that pickle relish we call chow chow. And I was thinking, wow, chow chow made from chayote. ¡Qué interesante!
  11. I agree Pechugón or big breast chicken as we might say in English is good. But it is better used to be deboned and put in caseroles or other recipes. To eat it alone, it is highly salty. Too salty for my taste.
  12. Most of the drivers at Lakeside that claim to be Uber drivers are not real Uber drivers, they are just people with a car and a business card that work to drive people around. Since you live in Chapala Haciendas, if I am not mistaken. Just google chapala taxi. Call the number and arrange for a taxi driver to pick you up at a given hour. I have done this several times and with me they have proven to be reliable. If you want to cut the cost cheaper, on your way home come back via the bus. From the Consulate to the old bus station or Central Camionera Vieja in a taxi will cost you around 100 pesos and around 60 pesos by bus back to Chapala.
  13. I don't have enough knowledge to form a veritable opinion yet anyhow. I'm just raising interesting and valid points to politely add to the conversation and to get people thinking independently. My only opinion is that something smells fishy and I don't believe everything I read either. We should all be free to have our own independent opinions.
  14. Another thing to point out is that East Asian countries are some of the most compliant populations in the world when it comes to the wearing of face masks and obeying government mandated shut downs. Now the news keeps talking about how these countries are beginning to have surging cases again and Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia among others are going back into lock downs again even though they never ever truly have opened up their tourist sites since the start of the Pandemic. So my question is, if mask mandates can't keep the most compliant mask wearing populations on the planet safe from the virus, then why are we obsessing and enforcing it so much if it helps little? Seriously it is too late to try to stop this virus. Anything the government does in regarding restrictions and lock downs just prolong the pandemic and the inevitable. But its not saving anybody's lives because it just comes back or worse mutates and comes back. We should just learn to accept it and treat as we do the annual flu and get back to our lives. Nothing the government has done or can do has made it go away yet.
  15. https://news.yahoo.com/cdc-says-travelers-avoid-france-204358179.html Please, can someone smarter than me please explain this article to me? If I'm not mistaken, I remember reading about how Israel and Iceland were both being internationally applauded for having some of the highest vaccinated populations in the world against Covid. I think Israel even used Pfizer and J&J to vaccinate their people which are both the best against the Delta variant. Why are they now on the CDC list of countries to avoid? And no mention of México and any other Latin American country. Am I missunderstanding something. If vaccines can't keep little Iceland and Israel with their very small, close to being, fully vaccinated populations off the no travel list. Why are we made to believe vaccines should be mandated in the first place to further enrich the pharmaceutical companies especially when they just recently announced that they would be raising the price of Pfizer in Europe.
  16. I have seen them in Walmart in years past. I don't know about now. But you can check.
  17. Water lily plants as of today at least are starting to flow into the lake again. Just get a free one from the lake.
  18. There might be several 711's along the carretera but the only 711 in Chapala Centro that I know about is the one a block up from Coppel all others are Oxxo's. Yes Oxxo has won the war.
  19. For a split second I thought you were going to speak about the miraculous benefits of peacock manure as fertilizer for plants. Haha.
  20. I think you are referring to Cremería Mi Ranchito which is behind the plaza or better said behind the Mercado Municipal on the corner of López Cotilla and Júarez streets.
  21. I would love to hear you speak Spanish. That would be the true test of how Mexicano you really are jaja.
