  1. Todo Bueno resale shop in Riberas has hand-painted walking sticks right next to the counter as you walk in the door. I saw probably a half dozen there last Friday. Todo Bueno is located next door (east of) S&S Auto, ajacent to Have Hammers Carpentry school.
  2. La Pueblita has been on-again off-again for the last 5 years. Here's a prior thread that that provides alittle history.
  3. Snuck in under our gate at maybe 5 weeks of age, skin and bones, probably dumped. Now 12 weeks, about 10 pounds, vet checked and has had 2 of 3 vaccines, ready to go to a new home. She is doing well on her potty training, has mastered fetch, and we're working on sit. We will pay for final vaccination due Dec. 7th. PM if interested.
  4. If signed in as a user, the wait between searches is 15 seconds, mas o menos. If viewing as a guest, not signed in, the wait is 300 seconds, mas o menos. I just tried it both ways.
  5. They (Capital Brokers Guadalajara) are offering units for sale. https://www.vivanuncios.com.mx/a-venta-inmuebles/chapala/departamentos-de-lujo-con-vista-al-lago/1001318847250910997990709
  6. Has anyone noticed the 13 story condo building ready to stsrt construction between the Piedra Barrenada restaurants and the Raquet Club ? Will be just a few feet off, and to the north of, the carretera, where a white concrete block building now stands. Big signs went up in front of the project today.
  7. Vianney is a home store with locations all over Guadalajara, and also have a small store (limited stock) in Chapala. The Chapala store should be able to order anything you find on their website, but don't find in their store. Chapala store is located on Miguel Martinez, 4 blocks north of the 'main' traffic light at Hidalgo/Madero,, and 1 1/2 blocks east of Madero. Website is here: https://www.vianney.com.mx/Productos/RECÁMARA/EDREDONES
  8. The process is simple. Create a text message with the phone number and the amount, ie: 3331234567 200 Send the text to phone number 7373 Both you and the receiver will receive a text message back from Telcel confirming the transfer. The credit takes on the same expiration date as whatever credit the receiver already has. Best if the receiving phone has recently added a credit with a 60 day expiration. If they have no credit on their phone, it has an expiration of 10 days. You have to make sure the receiving phone is also Telcel. Can't transfer credit to a phone usig Movistar, or any other, provider.
  9. I've seen them in the booths along the Chapala malecon.
  10. Cheating Shaw ? Shaw does not have content distribution rights in Mexico. Revenue Shaw receives from customers in Mexico is cheating content providers.
  11. Muriatic acid does the trick. Same stuff that is used to clean mineral deposits from glazed swimming pool and fountain tiles. Available at Ferromteriales Lopez, the hardware store next door (west of) El Barco. 50 pesos for a gallon jug. Wear rubber gloves and don't inhale the fumes, goes without saying, when using this product.
  12. Dr. Haro in Riberas can repair dentures while-you-wait, without an appointment.
  13. Difficult to do a cost of living comparison using a single derived average (purchasing power) Example: My property taxes are 100 USD in Mexico vs. 10,000 USD in the US, 99% cheaper here. Gasoline, howeer, costs 3.34 USD per gallon here vs. 1.91 in the US, 74% more expensive here. If you don't own your house, or drive a car, neither of those comparisons are relevant. Better to use a calculator that compares today's costs for individual items in both locations, like Numbeo. This website compares costs in Illinois to Ajijic; as submitted by people who live in those 2 locations. https://www.numbeo.com/cost-of-living/compare_cities.jsp?country1=United+States&country2=Mexico&city1=Des+Plaines%2C+IL&city2=Ajijic
