  1. Interesting BD but I understand the reference to agrarian community land to be an edijo by definition.   All the result of the revolution against Diaz’ cabal.   Article 4 deals with professions.   I don’t see a specific mention of indigenous people in Article 27 but I do see ss 4 referencing the sale of rural land as prohibited from sale to commercial stock companies.   My thought was Mexico was unique in treating natives as being NOT different from any other citizen.   Equality being the key.  So my only point was there is no such thing as “indigenous land” per se.   Indigenous defined as native american.   If you have an exact reference in the constitution to indigenous let me know ‘cause I cannot find it.   Thanks

  2. Too much work for me.  Parking for inside service not acceptable. Tried to order a pizza but they DO NOT deliver.  Phoned the delivery service who said their charge was 50 pesos.   The pizza was 200 pesos so with a tip of 20 pesos it was 270 pesos for a 12” pizza.  So phoned perry’s, mj closed Sunday, and delivery pizza and tip was 200 pesos and a larger pizza.   Bottom line is this purple garlic will not be a likely choice in the foreseeable future.

  3. I always take my car to the dealer because I feel them best suited for the job; however, I have known of Felipe’s work for years.   He was the go to guy in Armeria, Colima for all the gringos because he did a good job, spoke perfect english, was trained in the US and never screwed anybody.

  4. S&S Auto.   I was under the impression there are basically 3 insurance companies and the local agents go to them for a price.  Qualitas GNP and HDI.   I use HDI because in my opinion their overall response time from the scene of the accident to any payout is better than the other two.  It is marginally higher in cost then the others usually.    So to me I want an agent who I can trust and for that I pick S&S Auto.

  5. Furniture Show in August.   I thought this was at the expo center next week but Senior Google tells me its the Enart show held Feb and August in Talaquepaque.   The later, as I recall, was short on furniture whereas the expo center had a plethora of it.    Your thoughts appreciated.

    Hi All,

    If you are living in Mexico on a temporal visa, can you buy a Mexican plated car?



    Yes!   You will need a proof of address locally in your name however.   

    Personally I would, with very few exceptions, NEVER buy a used car in Mexico.   You can buy a new March or Kia for under 10K USD.

    For your personal safety and protection my advice would be for you to buy through S&S Auto!

    Angus said the probable truth - you can't embrace the culture, you will be toast and headed north quickly. 
    If the sole purpose to move here is to live cheaply I agree, chances of living happily here is not a likely probability.    So come down and if you can’t adapt to the lifestyle consider another country
