  1. Need to get a tire repaired in or near Ajijic. I used to use the guy near Casa de Waffles, but he out of business. Any Recommendations?
  2. We stood in three diffenent lines for a almost 4 hours [11AM to 3PM] to renewed our drivers licenses in Guad on 14 May 2019. From talking to Mexicans there, some who arrived around 9 or 10 waited more than 5 hours. Arriving at 11AM may be optimum; be prepared for long lines. The people in line were very curteous and offered seats when available to us oldsters with canes.
  3. Peter, My symptoms were similar to yours, same L4 L5 problem, but Dr. Gonzales recommended hip replacement, so that is what we did.

  8. TYPIST NO LONGER NEEDED. I am looking for someone to type my Great Grandfather’s 216 page diary written in 1888. I want the final manuscript to be in MS Word so that it can easily be distributed to as many of his descendants as possible. Someone has already typed about 50 pages of the diary which translates to 18 typed pages. However, these will have to be retyped into MS Word. The typist will need to be experienced in typing from handwritten English and have MS Word software.
  9. Thanks for Mainecoon's great instructions. For the past ten years we have been driving to/from Pharr in early January; taking the eastern route via Cuidad Victoria for the past five. We have never stopped at Mexican customs going north [exiting Mexico] and have never had a issue with our car papers returning south [7 years with a US plated car and 3 with an Jalisco plated car]. We have permenent visas. We have been stopped at Mexican customs going south a few times, but are usually just waived through after they see the car papers and glance in back of our half full SUV with groceries
  10. To change address, you need to bring the completed on-line form as well as the ORIGINALS AND COPIES of your passport, permenente and new address.
  11. We have permenentes and just changed our address and recorded it at Immigration in Chapala. To start the process, one must complete a rather complicated on-line form at inm.gob.mex. Click on "Solicitud de Estancia". Then you get a rather long questionnaire, which starts with: ¿Qué DESEA HACER? We then selected: "Notificar cambios (reseidentes temporales y permanents)" For "Especifique" we selected "Notificar de cambio de domicilio". You will need to provide a CURP number. It took us a couple days to get the form completed successfully. Then you print the form and take it to Immigrati
  12. Twice we drove our new Jalisco plated car into McAllen, Texas. Both times we were in McAllen for four days and drove back to Mexico with no problems. Only lengthy stops were was US customs/immigration upon entering USA. Mexican customs waived us through once and asked a couple questions the second time. We drive very carefully and saw no need to buy US insurance. I am bot sure if our Mexican car insurance covers us in US border towns.
  13. We just moved and want to change our address in our visa file with Mexican Government immigration office. How much does it cost? Can we do it in Chapala?
