  1. The other day we bought 2 scoops each of Romeo & Julieta Gelato on the Chapala malecon. While we sat, slowly savoring our selections, we found out we no longer need to leave Ajijic for this pleasure. Ajiijic location is at the bottom end of Colon (Morales) street, between La Casa de Cafe and the Old Posada. It is a tiny storefront, easy to walk past it. They offer 6 flavors of gelato and 3 of fruit sherbet with scoops starting at $20 pesos for 1, $35 for 2, $50 for 3.
  2. Remembrance of a sad day in Manzanillo. After the earthquake of October 9, 1995, hundreds of volunteers and army personnel participated in the rescue of victims who died in the collapse Costa Real Hotel, which was located on the boulevard. Today marks 20 years, which left 42 dead in Colima and some 35 thousand people homeless. The epicenter was off the coast of Colima and Jalisco, and had a magnitude of 8 degrees.

  3. I feel sorry for them, but at least they are fed and have cover from the elements.
  4. Do you mean click on Blogs and Utube Shows? Still does not open properly. Impossible to read items to left of the screen.
  5. My lady enrolled 2 years ago. Interview only. Accepted and using the IMSS services. Myself, I have been in the IMSS system 15 years. Renew every year. Two surgeries (one this year), treatment by the urologist over a 2 year period, flu shots, etc. The bureaucracy can be a problem if you do not have reasonable spanish. In the hospital, there is always someone that can help with translation, but I manage with my mediocre spanish. The surgeon who did my surgery in January spoke perfect english and in the post op encouraged his interns(?) to speak to me in english.
  6. Had mine done January 28th by IMSS. Over night stay. 7 months later scar has nearly disappeared. Present yearly fee for my age is 4,600pesos

  9. I frequently call NOB on my Mexican land line to USA and Canada at no charge with my INFINITUM contract. Can I also call NOB CELL phone numbers with my Telmex land line phone free? Thanks
  10. Check the voltage requirement of your mini fridge. Here the appliances are built to handle a wide range of voltage fluctuations. For your mini, you may need to buy a voltage regulator.
  11. I have a TDCanada Trust card and an HSBC Canada card. HSBC used this morning to withdraw. No problems.
  12. Gringal, I hope you have at least gone to IMSS to open up your file. I have been in the system 16 years, had two operations and receive my medications from them.

  17. Been with IMSS since October 1999. Had lingual hernia surgery this past Monday. Through November 2014 and December, I had clinic appointments, blood tests, xray, ekg, evaluation by a cardiologist (because of my high Bp), and met with the surgeon twice. I spent one extra day in the hospital due to my BP and they wanted to make sure my bowel movements were normal. Recovering now. No pain, but I tire easily, The bureaucracy is painful, more I think than the surgery.
  18. We have done the going straight on at the end of 80D at Villa Arriaga towards SLP. As you get closer to SLP 80 is a nightmare. Did it in June, never again.
  19. 80 is a BIG mistake unless you like curvy narrow truck infested roads. Not pleasant.
