  1. We're in a similar boat, Gringal. When we moved here from Canada more than 16 years ago, we applied for private medical insurance but were turned down due to pre-existing conditions. With not having to pay for private insurance, 'NOB' property taxes or heating and air conditioning, we're ahead of the game. We've had several operations/procedures including brain surgery, pacemaker replacement, coronary artery stents (5 for me and 2 for spouse), as well as other operations.
  2. Are they still giving Pfizer vaccines at the University in Guadalajara?
  3. Unfortunately our airline tickets are non-refundable (can't change them either).
  4. I'm hoping under the Essential Travel into the United States that individuals traveling for public health purposes might include obtaining a J&J vaccine.
  5. Thanks for your response, Mostly Lost. However, the article in USA Today is dated July 10, 2020 not 2021 so it doesn't appear to be current news.
  6. Is it possible for Canadians to fly into Tijuana airport then cross into the U.S. by way of the CBX Crossing? Any Canadians with recent experience doing this?
  7. I second Ferret's recommendation.
  8. I can’t speak for Arturo whether he’d be willing to go over to the south side of the Lake but it would be worth a call to him to enquire. Good luck, twistedD! I hope it works out for you.
  9. Problem solved. Thanks to Ron at Solar Technology for his recommendation (also Maincoons) of Arturo. Our instant on hot water heater is compatible with our solar hot water system. Apparently we had the temperature of the water heater set too high. Argh!
  10. Thanks, xyyz and Mainecoons, for your helpful information.
  11. We're looking for a plumber who is familiar with instant-on hot water heaters used in conjuction with solar hot water system. Sometimes in the colder, cloudy weather, the solar system does not provide hot water. We've had an instant-on hot water heater which used to work as a back-up to the solar system but isn't working now. Thanks in advance.

    Sour cream

    Sello Rojo Crema - Premium at El Tororito. Delish!
  13. In Ontario, Canada (don't know about other provinces), they have kept the liquor stores open so that there isn't an increase in domestic violence or violence in general. Different country, different viewpoint!
  14. I paid my bill yesterday using a Canadian credit card. It gave me the option of payiing in pesos or Canadian dollars.
