  1. There are companies which do this as a business. Find some Guadalajara facebook pages like MexPatGuadalajara and ask there. It would be a topic at this time of year as the medical students come in and leave. It is not usual in the Lake Chapala area to have to provide this but is regular business elsewhere.
  2. Africa, India, etc... know full well that any effort made by the 1st world is doomed by the continued growth of the 3rd world. Population and pollution. Then China who has no worries and owns the African continent and soon the world.....
  3. And they disintegrate and rip apart quickly but are not recyclable and go straight to trash piles.
  4. Why? It doesn't matter which airline. We fly many and to lots of different places. We don't pay tourist tax to Mexico because we are not tourists. Every airline has respected the request to refund the tax.
  5. You can pay a boy to bring it to you. A neighbor used to do that. Kid did it in the morning before he went to afternoon session school.
  6. We send a letter to the airline customer service when we return from each trip. Photo of each persons ticket, boarding pass stub and INM card plus our passport. We get refunded every time.
  7. Wouldn't you suppose that the project simply bought the use of the Wyndham name like the el Dorado property did with Radisson.
  8. Moved, changed, resurrected...all reasons to have the administrator archive posts older than say a year. You can still get the old info just prevents misunderstandings. That said the Chapala Government Facebook pages are very informative. Or the newspaper. Yes many say - oh my privacy etc... well yes, maybe, probably. However "they" already know all that info about you.
  9. Many expats do not realize just how well-to-do citizens of the area are, both expat and Mexican households, and they reflect many stratas of society. As for electing someone to do your bidding that change isn't going to happen becuase those political candidates and opportunities are decided years ahead as rewards for support and cooperation. It is very much who you know and what you did for them. Terrible but not changing as long as there are families with members in the pipeline awaiting their turn at the treasury.
  10. No titles. No bank trust available. Just makes me shiver.
  11. Another Aguagente convert. After years of regular delivery to our door in Ajijic centro (we rotated 3 bottles) the idea of not bothering with the garrafons was appealing. I have a husband at home who can lift garrafons for me. And we have whole house UV etc..even he says it tastes better.
  12. Profeco is the BBB which I hadn't thought was of any use in the US. Except for places where Angie's List is very active the recourse is small claims court in the US. If you haven't $800 pesos for a consult then gas and time in the city are your only options and those expenses are unrecoverable. Like many we have just walked away making sure everyone we know is told about the behavior. But then we've never had $1500 US at stake without a contract and a quarter total payment agreement. This is your second need for a Profeco type of solution. That is unusual and I am sorry for your poor luck. I wish you better luck in the future.
  13. Soriana - might try over with the curtains and rods. Travis you haven't asked me but I have some. I gave Gringal some black a year or two ago and I haven't any white or I'd have offered it up. My sewing notions have been lonely for years.
