    Driving from Columbia Crossing to Ajijic

    Friends went through the Colombia Solidarity crossing in NL on Tuesday and had no troubles at all making the trip Lakeside in one day. They also found no shortage of gasoline, which some people had posted asan issue earlier in the week.

    HSBC/CIbanco ATM's FYI

    Although over the years, posters have pointed out here that there's a screen asking to accept an exchange rate, I've never seen it and have used cards from multiple banking institutions to get cash from both HSBC ATMs. Must be the financial institution one is drawing funds from, then, that prompts this screen?

    HSBC/CIbanco ATM's FYI

    The left ATM at HSBC has always offered the option for USD or local currency; the right-hand one does not. I've never tried to dispense USD, though, nor see the exchange rate posted.
  4. Years ago I went to the brick municipal building in Chapala across from the San Francisco church; second floor west side office, to do the same. I filled out out a form with the property address (in this case, an individual residence) and my contact information, and it got transmitted to the correct office, who then made contact about whether or not permits were filed. It may be the same. I think it took about a week or so for the info.

    Apostille Documents

    The apostille for any US document must be done by the secretary of state where the document was issued. It can't be "done" in Mexico: you still have to provide the originals, send with return, traceable mail envelope enclosed, and the application and fee. I've never heard of any consulate requiring apostilles of bank statements; they ask for "originals" (as in not computer-generated, and computer-doctored copies.) At some point you may need an apostilled birth certificate and marriage license, but that was not our case for anything so far.

    I took the test in July and, being over 60, only had to take the language exam.

    Where to pay Temporal fee? Which bank?

    The photo place on OCampo does really nice work while you wait. He'll do the "infantil" and other size-specific photos while you wait. There is a large sign on the street, directly in front of their door.
  14. You can google "Quality Care Clinic Ajijic" for contact information.
  15. Maincoons, the issue with the non=payment of dump fees and suspension of service to the municipio was posted in local papers and online sources at least 2 weeks ago. Yesterday early afternoon, Chapala posted the above notice re: suspension of service on their official Facebook page. A lot of expats didn't use Facebook "back home" and don't join the many local FB groups nor do they communicate via Whatsapp, but both are preferred tools here to interface between government, local businesses and businesspeople. It does very much allow one to stay with the info flow. (Not that the original post means anything...our trash did get picked up last night after this post and the worker says they are working again today to try to resolve the backlog.)
