  1. Well here we go again folks, something that has been proven not to work the govenor of Jalisco is going to try it again for the 3rd or 4th time. He must be planning on running for Presidente soon. If it didn't work the first time the second time or the third, what makes him think it will work this time? I guess it just looks good on his résumé. Remember that the Mexican people are not receiving stimulus checks nor receiving any government assistance in these difficult times. They must be allowed to continue to work to feed and cloth their families. Most Mexicans live in extended family homes with grandma living in the back room. The virus is already so prevalent, if the truth were known, most of us have already been in contact with it and or have already had it without knowing. These measures will do little to stop or slow down the infection rate it will just hurt the already hurting Mexican families. But it will look good on Alfaro's portfolio and it may boost his self esteem. The only measure that will help is to get the vaccine out to anybody over 60 and maybe the death rate will go way down. That is it, period. Anyways, after living with it for over a year, most people have accepted it and have lost their fear.
  2. If you choose to take the Zacatecas route when coming into Aguascalientes just follow the signs pointing you towards Guadalajara.
  3. Mainecoons, I am sure there are probably Airbnbs available in the Ajijic area. They would be perfect for a week stay.
  4. Thats the only negative thing about that route. Yes you still go through Aguascalientes. I just follow the road signs that point you to Zacatecas or Gdl depending on which direction you are traveling. GPS is helpful too.
  5. Remember, coming down from Laredo, there are two main routes, one going through San Luís Potosí thats the one you pass the Hotel Las Palmas. The other one is the Zacatecas route is the one we prefer. It has less traffic and less tolls, hence cheaper. Both have good roads and are considered safe.
  6. What are your 4 best climates if Chapala is #5?
  7. Estrellas I hope you are not suggesting that anybody that does not go out and get the vaccine is probably going to die from Covid, seriously is that what you are trying to say. Roughly 50% of Americans are not planning on getting the vaccine anytime soon. So, you really think half of Americans will soon be dead from Covid. I hope I am misinterpreting your statement.
  8. Mudgirl, I was referring to them testing positive but it was really a false positive. Just like thousands of Americans have tested positive for Covid when in fact they were actually really negative. And the opposite is also true. But yes I see what you mean by testing positive for the antibodies vs testing positive for the disease itself. And I neither want to be a guinea pig.
  9. Mudgirl, I never ever made any ridiculous claim that the vaccine was giving people HIV. I'm just saying that these reasons among many many others are why lots people would prefer to wait awhile before being jabbed with a new vaccine that does NOT have years of testing to back it up. And Gringohombre suggests that this vaccine is worth the elimination of this scourge to mankind. Who is claiming that the vaccine will eliminate Covid-19 from planet Earth? Certainly not Dr. Fauci. Most scientists actually believe that Covid is here to stay. It will just keep mutating every couple of months similarly to the way the common flu already does.
  10. RickS, I guess we will know the answer to that in the next few months.
  11. Yeah, its a new scary world we are all moving into.
  12. Upfront, I pointed out that it gave false positives, but that is kind of scary, don't ya think?
  13. Of course MtnMama, and in my first post I think I made it perfectlly clear that it was a Covid vaccine made locally in Australia. But can you imagine a country the size and as rich as Australia can make mistakes with their vaccine, the USA and Europe most certainly can too. Every day I read about new evidence that if you have such and such ailment you should not take the vaccine or if you take such and such medicines then you should not take it. The vaccine is spanking new it has not even been around for 7 months yet. Lots of people have already had severe allergic reactions to it. A vaccine for a virus that has a 98 to 99% survival rate, it sounds like this brand new vaccine may possibly be riskier than getting the virus itself. Everybody has to make their own decisons regarding their own safety and what risks they feel safe taking and they must decide whether they can or should blindly trust the government to be honest with them to keep them safe. I for one will wait a few years before taking any novel vaccine. I'm just saying......
  14. Please do not visit Chapala Centro or our malecón, I am afraid you would probably have a nervous breakdown followed by or preceeded by panic attacks.
  15. Re read my post, I pointed that out already so people couldn't accuse me later of misleading. But still would you be in line to get that Covid vaccine if people were later testing positive for HIV, be it only false positives or not? Sounds like the vaccine in some places can be scarier than the disease.
  16. Does everybody realize that the government vaccination program in Australia has been stopped due to people that got vaccinated later showing up testing positive for HIV. So many people that got vaccinated later tested positive for HIV that the government put an immediate stop to the vaccine. I realize the Australian government says the vaccine was locally made and has claimed that it only shows false positives......but still....who wants to take a Covid vaccine if you later test positive for HIV. Guys, none of these vaccines have been properly tested for sufficient years to prove that they are safe. Only get it if you trust the government beyond a shadow of a doubt. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.bbc.com/news/amp/world-australia-55269381
  17. Número just means your house or building number. Número int or interior means if you live in an appt, condo, or duplex. Colonia is your immediate neighborhood. Just remember that Mexican addresses are not always as clear cut and precise as what you might be used to North of the Border. But as long as you get your city, state, street and house number correct most senior mailmen will be able to find you.
  18. I am not sure why so many people are assuming that this person is a troll. I think he or she is asking legitimate questions on how to properly fill out the address section of any Mexican online shopping site. Sometimes I think the people on this form are just all old and grumpy and have absolutely no patience for newbies. You guys are the reason why this forum and all forums are dying. Why would any serious troll have questions like these?
  19. I almost forgot about Nestle's but yet again all they make is vanilla, cookies-n- cream and neopolitan. 😴
  20. Does anybody know why Holanda brand has zero imagination? All they make is Neopolitan, Cookies-n-Cream and Vanilla. That is basically all you see in México, and God forbid, don't ever try the off brands. From time to time you will see Sealtest ice cream at Soriana with flavors like cookie dough and reeses cup ice cream among other exciting flavors. But never at Wal-Mart.
  21. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.latimes.com/world-nation/story/2020-12-13/unwelcome-in-other-countries-and-amid-lockdowns-at-home-americans-are-flocking-to-mexico%3f_amp=true Apparently mostly Americans are still coming down but not so many Canadians according to this article.
  22. The OP has not mentioned anything that comes close to conspiracy theories. Yes, maybe if he or she had posted this a year ago or so, and said this is how 2020 would turn out, you could call it a conspiracy theory. But he or she is just bringing up the things that are being discussed daily in our main stream media. Like it not, its the crazy world we live in today.
  23. It was only closed for 2 weekends back in November. When the Mexican black friday or Buen Fin started everything miraculously opened back up. Economic needs trump any virus prevention measures.
  24. Upfront is definitely the nastiest and most agressive member on this forum. Calling people turds just because he doesn't agree with them is never cool. He's the one that needs putting in his place.
  25. Daisy, I seriously have no idea where you got 40 deaths. The official death count from the government is showing 18 as of today, a couple days ago it showed 15. And that is for 12 months. Remember it is widely believed that Covid was around since the middle of December of last year.
