  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

    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.

    No thank you.  Its too late regardless, just let it run its course.  That may seem heartless to some but apparently that is what is going to happen anyways.  Any measures and lock downs mandated by the government will just keep us longer in this Covid nightmare and it won't save any lives because the inevitable will happen anyways in the long run.  Remember the small percentage here who have been vaccinated, most have only been given one shot anyhow.  The 2 shots last about 6 months anyways.  Then you'll need them every six months.  Who really believes the government can afford to give out free shots to everyone every 6 months?  They can barely get out the first shot.  The inevitable is going to happen regardless, if you think differently you are delusional.  It will sooner or later run through the entire population eventually.  Better sooner in my opinion.  So, heck, stop slowing it down, let it do its thing and let us put this nightmare behind us.

    Tuesday Market has several cheese vendors or go to the cheese shop across from the Chapala plaza.

    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.
