  1. Does anyone know where a list of restaurants that deliver in Chapala-Ajijic is online?
  2. MC, in Chapala, Totalplay put up its cables on my street months ago so installation was just running a cable to the house. My TotalPlay is running at about 35 mbps according to 5 internet speed programs. I am supposed to be getting 100mbps. But the speed I`m getting gives me uninterrupted streaming (no whirling green circles) and all websites come up pretty fast and there has only been 2 very brief interruptions in service in a month (at least one a day up to several hours with Telmex) so I`m perfectly satisfied. I may get around to calling them about the discrepancy in internet speeds or I may not that`s how satisfied I am.
  3. Do you have a phone number for an excellent roofing/ceiling repair guy (some English is good)? I have a leak in the house. Thanks.
  4. After 10 years here with cohetes going off every few days, I`ve realized there is no point in asking "Why?". Could be a birthday, another type of gathering, couple of guys sitting in their car late at night just setting them off, some guy down at the lake ripping a few or it could actually, as the cultural explanation goes, be a fiesta. At first, I went crazy, asking everyone "Why?" and getting angry each time ("How dare they disrupt my peace?"). The Mexican always just shrugged their shoulders, like "yeah, so what, what can you do about it?". Now, cohetes are just part of my landscape. My aural mind has evolved. But I don`t have dogs or cats so I don`t have that predicament and it must be pretty awful. So, unless you want to do battle with the priests, and you know the cops won`t do anything and the neighbors won`t do anything, you`re going to have to find a solution for yourself and your dogs.
  5. There is a battery store in Chapala on Lopez Cotilla midblock between the Avenue and Juarez on the south side of the street. Little place. They`ve always had batteries for my watches but I don`t know if they have CR2016 batteries.
  6. Which vaccine brands are being administered in Chapala? Does one have a choice? Can one choose Pfizer? Are vaccines available in a doctor`s office at this point?
  7. Here, on Chapala.com with her user name of Bonbelle.
  8. Have you tried searching for her here?
  9. Does anyone know the hospital room occupancy percentages in Chapala municipality? Are we at 50%, 70% ? I heard Jocotepec is at 100%. I see Puerta Vallarta is at 100%. Thanks.
  10. Every official in government interprets the law /rules differently. Maybe go to someone different and try again?
  11. Lake Chapala is fed by the second largest river and watershed in Mexico. The watershed is in 5 states. When these watersheds begin to dry out we will have a lot of advanced warning. And along that way, Guadalajara, the 2nd largest city in Mexico (HUGE political clout), which gets a large percent of its drinking water from Lake Chapala, will have something to say about the situation. I wouldn`t keep up all night worrying about this.
