  1. You should do some research before posting misinformation. Their bite isn't dangerous. They carry a parasite in their feces. That's what causes Chagas disease. They are attracted to warmth and are noctural. So they will seek the warmth of your breath, crawl on your face when you're asleep, people feel something in their sleep, wipe at their face and rub the feces into their mouth, nose or eye. That's how you contract Chagas. And no, Mostly lost, it has nothing to do with sleeping outside, and brushing at your face while asleep is exactly how you get Chagas. Apparently not all kissing
  2. Most people don't, but obviously some do. My neighbor did- he had his wallet in his pocket and it must have fallen out when he was on his motorbike just taking a quick trip to the OXO. And I almost did, as my wallet was stolen. I was just extremely lucky that a woman called me who had seen my cards strewn all over the edge of the Walmart parking lot. Actually her young son spotted the wallet. She said she first told him to leave it, then saw my driver's license, PR card, etc, strewn around and knew it would be a drag for me to lose all those. The thieves took my bank cards and the little
  3. Not all Mexican cops and transitos are looking for mordita, either. Some are actually honest and don't even hint at that as a possibilty.
  4. That may be true Lakeside, but is otherwise false. One should note. Immigration has swept through Sayulita several times. Last year they were set up at the back entrance to Sayulita and a friend of mine who'd been living here for years with no residency (not a bright thing to do but she's a die-hard anti-govt. rebel) got nabbed and deported. Sometimes they hit the restaurants, looking for foreigners working without work permits. I know someone who got deported like that, too. He wasn't a gringo,either, he was Argentinian.
  5. Yes, I admitted I did it once. Not proud of it, it was a convenience factor because I was in a rush, rather than not being aware of the law. But the other times I've asked for a ticket.
  6. Crooked cops. And as long as people allow themselves to be intimidated, and whip out their wallet, it will continue. Knowing the laws of the country where you reside is really helpful. I have a friend who flies to Mexico from Canada, and rents a car for the month she stays. She got nabbed for speeding on her way from the airport (not a BS charge-she drives really fast) and the transito told her he had to take her license and write her a ticket. Because she was unaware that that is exactly how things are done here, and she would get her license back, no problem, when she went to pay the t
  7. It appears that threads are only judged by the moderator to be "political" and become locked when anything to do with the US is criticized. Fine to bash other countries, it seems, but don't dare contest the "greatest country on earth".
  8. You can find it in supermarkets in the laundry supplies section- sold to fill irons with. And in auto supply stores to fill batteries.
  9. Not exactly. You might want to study up on the difference between its and it's.
  10. In certain situations, like being crammed indoors with masses of people, I just might. Covid won't be the last pandemic. I've seen quite a few Chinese immigrants wearing masks in public places, long before Covid, in Vancouver.
  11. There are people now saying they will continue to wear a mask in crowded public venues regardless of them being vaccinated against Covid. Which people have done in many Asian countries for quite awhile.The incidence of influenza and the common cold have plummeted since Covid masking. It makes a lot of sense not to spread whatever germs your carrying around or catch them from others.
  12. Now c'mon, you know that's not how it's done. You dig things up really close to rainy season or at the beginning of tourist season or a major holiday week because you estimate the work to take a quarter the time is actually does.
  13. No, there are no potential invaders because Canada doesn't go around the world making enemies.

    While on my once every two week shopping run to PV one day, I got a craving for a burger, which I eat once in a blue moon, and stopped at Outback, which was on my route anyway. I ordered medium and it came bloodily rare inside, the bun was totally soggy and the fries were way undercooked, cold, and also soggy. I'll never go back. But I have to say that back in the days I used to drive back and forth from Canada, I was always so glad to cross the border into Mexico, as driving the highways in the US, the chains are pretty much the only options for where to eat. Whereas in Mexico, you
