  1. I think very welcome. Eleana's is the only thing close since El Serape closed several years ago.
  2. Do keep up with the cleaning otherwise you will wind up at the doctor, thinking you’re deaf.
  3. Prior to recently leaving Mexico for S Carolina, we had Dish US. We used CP Electronics in Guadalajara. I had Americas top 250 service plus HBO (HBO and Dish have been in contract disputes for months) and Sirius Radio for about $110/mo. My network channels were out of NY area. I had the 2.4 meter dish pointed SW to Sat 119 and also a smaller dish pointed SE at whatever Sat Dish Mex uses. This was so when rain interrupted the signal on 119, it would automatically switch to Dish Mexico. Service was good and many channels were Hi Def. We also had a DVR receiver and could record stuff. CP has a good website if you want to check it out.
  4. 25 years ago we were vacationing in PV and on my way back to the hotel from my morning run I couldn't help noticing some hotel staff filling empty water bottles from the garden hose. Makes one wonder...
  5. I have always bought hamburger from Tony's. That or I grind my own from ribeye's or brisket or chuck.
  6. Mama's is in the original location now. Both are in one location. Karaoke in back and the pool bar in front. Just down from iShop Mailbox on the left.
  7. The rye bread that Pancho had for SuperLake came from NY. He had to order a lot of it and kept it in Guadalajara in a commercial freezer. It carried over to his Uncle when he took over SL from Pancho.That all sold out. Recently he had some rye and other bread from a commercial bakery in the US.
  8. SuperLake usually has rye bread.
  9. How are these comments helpful to the OP? (I do realize some expats have to respond to Every Single Thread) asking for a friend.
  10. 💥💥 4 July 2020 💥💥Happy America Day too!
  11. I would think keeping some kind of US residential address (could be a kid), not telling the company of relocation plans.
  12. 1. You live in Mexico. Citizens are not molly coddled. 2. Dengue has been at epidemic levels for a couple of years. 3. Locals cannot afford bug spray.
  13. We have had excellent service from Strom-White. Packed on day 1 and received our goods on day 25.
  14. It is the farthest from centro. I think it went east.
  15. I just let Garmin guide me. Going north, I just went straight thru town. Going south, I took the 3rd Periferico.
  16. Just crossed at Columbia Bridge yesterday(south bound) and no restrictions. Not a lot of traffic on a Sunday and did the Zacatecas-Aguascalientes route in record time, 9 hrs 50 minutes.
  17. There is a great selection of US microbrews at La Casita Deli in Guadalajara.
  18. The architect Jaime Hernandez can do this. He did mine. Not sure of his contact info but his brother owns Hernandez Real Estate.
  19. The ajijicweather is in Rancho Del Oro. I just got back in town and there was 5.5 inches in my rain gauge and we are in Ajijic Centro
  20. I have always like Lupita's, just east of Colon on the Carretera in Ajijic.
  21. Waze and Garmin will route you thru Aguascalientas and Zacatecas if you set the destination as Laredo/Columbia Bridge. If you want to go via Matehuala, set the destination as Matehuala and once there, change it to Laredo. I took the Agua/Zac route this past April and it was easy and cheaper. Don't know if that RR crossing has been fixed on the bypass of Lagos. Ditto on the Microliberamento.
  22. The homes in the Ajijic village, lakeside of carretera, haven’t been without water during the 15 years we have owned there. (knock wood) Just as a statistic in the water table discussion.
  23. I have had US Dish for more than several years. Large 8' dish pointing SW at Sat 119 and a smaller dish pointing SE at whatever satellite Dish Mexico uses. When rain interrupts 119, it automatically switches to the smaller dish for uninterrupted viewing. It has been a bit over $100/mo with DVR. I have used CP Elect in Guadalajara.
  24. We have been happy with the butter sold at Costco, especially the unsalted.
