  1. Also some manuf actors are worse than others for ads. Xiaomi, which I have, is infamous. They even have PR statements saying that they have ads to keep the price of their phones down. As a result, you can google the make of your phone and how to remove ads, and there are many step by step instructions that people have posted on how to reduce ads on specific models.

  2. I know a guy. 😄


    IB Furniture, next to OXXO, in San Antonio, close to Panini's. Used to be C&D years ago. They sell recliners there and are very helpful. I had ordered one online that they didn't carry and thought I would need help assembling it. He said he would come out and help me. Also I bought one there and he said he could repair it if needed.

    If you can't find that man that you might need, I'd try I&B. Ask for help. 3767664972

    Never thought I would have to ask this BUT after living in west Ajijic for 10+ years we recently moved to San Antonio and we cannot find a GOOD mexican food restaurant in the area .It can be a mom and pop hole in the wall , which we love ,  but not a taco stand so we can sit down and have a nice meal when wife doesn't want to cook .Rather not travel too far due to traffic so San Antonio , Riberas area would be great . I know they are out there just haven't stumbled on one yet . Gracias

    Frida's is really good. Just had her pozole and enchiladas yesterday.  https://www.facebook.com/Tacos-Frida-1739504829711373/

    She's on Essnap delivery service also, so eazy peazy.

    Most of the wait time in Ajijic is spent standing on line on the water-side of the malecón. A number of people took their own folding chairs; some locals had parasols to shade them from the sun--both of which help. Once you get close (about an hour from the end of the process) to the vaccination tents that accommodate 50 people each, you are shaded. As one groups gets vaccinated and does their 30-minute post-shot wait and final registration paperwork, the other group gets vaccinated.

    There are at most 800 shots remaining, but in my experiences this week and unless more volunteers are relocated to Ajijic to speed the process, that's still several hours of waiting. This week, many people arrived hours before the posted 8 am start time to get a spot, and the cooler morning air was more pleasant than the mid-afternoon sun. 

    Thank you so much for taking the time to spell this out. It still sounds too much for me at the present.

    I know other people have thanked you for spearheading getting all this good information for us - I add my voice to theirs!

    I just came from the Malecon in Ajijic. There are already 100's of people there with chairs and umbrellas and parking is non-existent.  There are police officers present blocking off traffic at the foot of 5 de Mayo (You drive south on Morelos and turn right on Del Paseo but cannot drive any further west than 5 de Mayo where you have no choice but to drive north.  All parking on any of the streets in the area are already occupied.


    Thank you, Carnivore. Exactly what I need to know.

    If there are others in my boat or similar, I just want to validate that this super spreader event thrown by the government, may not be for all of us.

    I'm recovering from a debilitating illness and am still in recovery. My best endurance event walking right now is about 10 minutes. I will be eagerly watching the experience of others, but there is no way this type of staging will work. There will be other times, places, and presentations that I can manage.

    Good luck and stay safe for those of you who go for it!


  6. I ordered from them and loved the food, thought it was some of the best I've had in this area.  Care was taken with everything.

    Eduardo did say they would like orders in advance, because they are getting more order than they can handle.  So I plan to order on Wednesday. I would cut them some slack at this point as they start up and figure out how run their business.

    I have a question about Multiva ATM s can you take 10,000 pesos in one transaction or do you have to do two 5,000.  I have been using CI Banco and get 9,000 in one. But lately there machines were not working and I can walk to Multiva ...

    I have taken 12,000 out of Multiva on a foreign credit card recently. Keep it underneath your foreign card limit after the conversion.

  8. The WHO has walked back that quote above from Monday that asymptomatic carriers don't spread Covid 19. There's a big breaking article in WaPo, and I get a lovely paywall there so that's out as a source. . KTLA.com:

    “What I was referring to yesterday in the press conference were very few studies — some two or three studies that had been published that actually try to follow asymptomatic cases, so people who are infected, over time, and then look at all of their contacts and see how many additional people were infected,” Van Kerkhove said.

    “And that’s a very small subset of studies. So I was responding to a question at the press conference. I wasn’t stating a policy of WHO or anything like that,” she said. “Because this is a major unknown, because there are so many unknowns around this, some modeling groups have tried to estimate what is the proportion of asymptomatic people that may transmit.”

    This link is to a story that ran on Michigan Live. They got four experts on infectious disease to rank 36 different activities as to the level of safety from covid-19 and some things you might consider before engaging in them. The experts didn't always agree on their threat rankings, so the rankings were averaged and disagreements noted. I found it very useful, since most of the activities are similar to what expats might consider here at Lakeside.


    Excellent resource for evaluating risk. Thanks for posting.

    Not sure where I saw this reply so maybe not confirmed news:

    Dear Mr. Mayor

    We business owners here at Lake Chapala respectfully ask that you ignore the wishes of a few non-citizens who seem to only worry about themselves. They want to put a fence around this place and thus starve us to death in the name of security. They don't like our clients from Guadalajara but they don't wish to make up the revenue we lose by not serving them. Yes, a few are actually citizens but the vast majority are just guests in our proud country. If it is legal to keep non-residents out we will abide by that but then request you see that the rule is strictly enforced. As of now it is a joke but our incomes are dangerously low and some of us will be forced out of business.

    Thank you and we promise to plant some trees when this is all over.

    You're not sure where you saw it, but you'll post it here as if it's legit? 

    Why don't you guys make a section called Political Musings or something along those lines and stop with the contortions, pretending that what you say isn't political, but anyone disagreeing with you is.
