  1. You are comparing apples and oranges. This is not about complying with a legal mask policy while in the store. This is about a current paid member in good standing complying with said mask regulation and social distancing illegally not being allowed in to shop at all because of age discrimination. I don't know how the Human Rights commission could make this any plainer. It is illegal in Mexico to discriminate against someone solely on the basis of age.
  2. Yes and they've all done major damage to themselves. And they still have covid. Now what?
  3. Your choice to view this that way, my choice to view it otherwise. You can also chose to be denigrated by remarks that are not directed to you personally. I do observe some seem to have a lot of fear associated with this situation and latch onto any and all "bad" news no matter how tenuous. Said officials have not only grossly violated basic human rights and laws in what is becoming obviously an exercise in futility and causing this to drag on now into the second year that I have no problem denigrating them at all. it is a hazard of their chosen line of "work." I've lived a long t
  4. Then it will be more contagious at home. At some point it is time to stop living in fear and seeing boogiemen around every corner.
  5. I used the word to describe the policy as Happy has explained to you. However if you wish to take it upon yourself, please feel free to do so. I paid them the membership fee and therefore are entitled to use the facilities until and unless they chose to cancel that membership and return said fee.
  6. How do we get a Spanish copy of this order? I want to carry it into Costco on Thursday in case they haven't gotten the message.
  7. Yes. I posted a link to a story in El Informador on another thread. It is clearly explained there. Also, earlier Spencer explained why it is a violation of a key part of the Mexican Constitution and can only be waived by following a specific legal process in that Constitution. Absent that, it was and is patently illegal. Not to mention stupid to think keeping a few older people from shopping for necessities is going to have any impact on public health. The fact of the matter is they are at much greater risk at home among younger family members. There's your on topic answer. To reit
  8. You don't have to go shopping and expose yourself to the truly minimal possibility of getting covid therefrom.
  9. This section is here specifically so people can share their restaurant and food information good or otherwise. My experience with reviews posted here is that if it is a mixed bag, the place will probably be mediocre or worse. There are a few people here whose tastes and reviews seem to parallel ours as we find we usually like the places we visit based on their recommendation.

    With all the closings and screwed up hours, are there any places around Ajijic that still sell decent pizza? Forget Dominos. Fogon de Charlotte gets good reviews but are they still operating?
  12. Is this place still there and open on Sundays?
  13. Aside from the snark, what is your point?
  14. Over 80 at our place for the first time this year. Air and pool perfect!
  15. Which place is that and where is it exactly? Thanks.
  16. We've never gotten a bad air BnB. OTOH we've screened them pretty carefully. One of our most favorites is a place in the historic district of Fort Worth where we stay when doing our annual doctor visits. I also notice air BnB has a much better selection of beach places in Manzanillo at much better prices than VRBO. We plan on using it when we finally get to Mazatlan later this year.
  17. Our college girls are coming for a week and we want to take them out to dinner in Chapala after we pick them up at the airport. They really like the Chapala waterfront. What are your favorite restaurants there? I understand there's a new one past the Club de Yachtes that people really like.. Your suggestions gratefully solicited.
  18. I'm told the other thing that has affected small hotels and traditional B&Bs is a big increase in Air B&B (which usually do not have the second B at all) by individuals looking to make a little money on the side and priced often significantly lower than the traditional offerings. I have two examples on my block alone, priced at half the rate of the long term B&B next door. We use air B&B a lot in the U.S., it has opened up a whole new option when traveling. It is really expanding here in Mexico.
  19. Consider yourselves lucky. Not a good report here. https://www.vallartadaily.com/desperation-grows-as-mexico-runs-out-of-vaccines/?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+VallartaDaily+(Headline+News+from+Puerto+Vallarta)
  20. Your best bet is to ask this question of an active local real estate agent. What I have heard is the market is very strong under $300K and in and adjacent to Ajijic.
  21. La Niña, less in the winter, and could make summer drier if blocking high pressure over the eastern pacific persists. El Niño more in the north in the winter and can't find much about how it affects summer here. Last year was supposedly ENSO neutral and it was below normal rains to the east of here which is why the lake didn't rise much even though we had average rainfall locally.
  22. This confirms the on line registration site is having problems handling the traffic. https://mexiconewsdaily.com/news/coronavirus/covid-vaccination-registrations-overwhelm-site-3-million-seniors-to-be-inoculated-in-1-week/
  23. No 80's here, mid 70's. Don't look for any rain this month either. This is a big La Niña and it could screw up the summer rainy season too.
  24. None of the above, thanks. We'll wait until we go back to the U.S.
