  1. dichosalocura seems to have had the experience you are looking for..I would only add look for a house close by and that has good/excellent internet service if you are going to be working from home. I am sure your children will benefit from this new experience
  2. "WE AND THEY" have a different culture and different appreciation of commitment and obligation
  3. Sadly Emile was walking (or cycling?) on the highway by Aquiles Serdan and collapsed, a heart attack. He and wife Alix own the Tres Leones B&B
  4. Having prostate "problems" a close friend shared with me his recent experience with examinations' and recommendations' from Urologist Dr Fabian Gargcia at QC and a US, Dr Mark Christ in Miami. My friend who frequently travels between MX and the US wanted to obtain a second option for this "delicate" situation. His Blood work indicated a high PSA of 39 My friend had previously seen Dr Fabian about 6 weeks ago and was prescribed a course of medicines, which did not improve my friends problem of frequently wanting to pee and alway having drible left in his bladder. Latter whilst visiting the US he was able to obtain a Ultrasound of his bladder. This test help's your doctor see how much urine you have left in your bladder after you urinate. Last week my friend revisited Dr Fabian informing him the course of meds had not improved his problem and shared with him the results obtained from the Echogram, a volume of 50ml, which is considered to be adequate/good, bladder emptying. Regardless of these results Dr Fabian next recommendation was to do a APE which includes scoping your urethra and also taking a biopsy of the prostate, and was enthusiastic to set up an appointment. My friend not so eager indicated he would think about. This week, fortuitously, my friend was able to see a Dr Christ in Miami, who listened to my friends experience and saw the EGM report and the previous meds prescribed by Dr Fabian. As was expected Dr Christ gave my friend a digital rectal exam, confirmed some abnormalities and possible a presence of cancer. Dr Christ recommendation. Not to do any biopsy or intervention , which would required my friend stop one of the meds he is taking for heart related issues. He prescribed the following meds; Flomax (Tamsulosion) and Avodart (Dutasteride) "come back to see me in November" ....."Because many prostate cancers grow so slowly an older man you have little concern that you may die from it"......"and take care as you cross the road you could get run over by a bus"!! Oh and my friends age ....... 91 years old, (young)
  5. In this GR page 9 there is an article giving cost details for a proposed sewer system for Ribaras del Pilar....the proposed project will cost 68M pesos and shared between the government and owners would cost cost the owners (depending on lot size) say $1,300/$1,600 which I thinks is a good deal The local government appreciates that home owners are concerned that the local government will just pocket their contribution, ( wonder why!!) and indicates the money will be placed in a seperate account and used only for this project. Question's; will this opportunity FLY......Will this local government be "honest".....Will the residents support the proposal. Any Ribaras forum members want to comment if they will participate??
  6. With respect there is a shortage of (good) workers , period, both here and in Guadalajara, with both locations "booming".... as the local Ajijic highway traffic confirms . With limited building space becoming less and less, the alternative way is up and up. There are many 3/4 high floors units already built or being built in Ajijic, good workers are becoming scarce and a rare commodity!!!
  7. A possible reason why the aforementioned projects fell behind is because of a shortage of skilled workers, ones that are experience at working at "high" levels. I think this project is experience the same problem. As lots are getting scarce I think we can expect more hi ride and or multi level dwellings. The elephant in the room is the infrastructure to support his development. A smart authority would be building the roads etc to accommodate and encourage responsible construction and zoning...silly me I am dreaming...maybe Telsa can help...but really there is no shortage of experience Gringo engineers, just a shortage of "smart" listens...Telsa try talking with Tod Stong, a very smart engineer who has been working with local ,state and federal governments, bless his heart what he has accomplished he is worthy of becoming a Saint
  8. I am sure there will be hundreds of " facilitators " just waiting to fast track you through the process
  9. With respect Telsa if you wish to enjoy Mexico then you better think like a Mexican AND speak like a Mexican If you have adolescent children do they always listen and do what you say? Many times they have different/better ideas than you. Or if you stay fixated be prepared to have Bleeding Ulcers!!
  10. I was having lunch with a friend today and he was excited to tell me he had purchased an apartment in the new hi ride It seems a comprise has been reached between La Forests Fracc and the developer. Mexico is full of compromises!!
