  1. We are arriving in Ajijic late January early February for a two month stay and artist workshop. We are retired non smoking teachers from California and are familiar with Ajijic and environs, I taught at the American School in Guadalajara a few years ago. What we would like is a 2 bedroom 2 bathroom close-in apartment or house with garden , sunny, and would love availability to a swimming pool. The rental time would be 2 to 2 1/2 months starting late January to first of April 2018. Would consider house swap. We have and 2 bd, 2 bath with large artist studio , hot tub and Tandem Kayak, in Cambria California. It is one mile from the ocean in San Luis Obispo County, CA in the artist community of Cambria (8 miles south of Hearst's Castle on Highway 1) Central Coast which is half way between San Francisco and Los Angeles.

  2. thank you amigos for the comments. Any more information, keep it coming. LCS! What a great support network. Wish we were in Ajijic right now.
  3. Amigos, My wife and I were just stunned by massive quotes for digital hearing aids. Costco in California priced at approx $7000 US for the two of us. the two options were Phonak Brio and Kirkland Signature 7.0. Is there a comparative option lakeside with a price we can afford? I need some dental done to, have a great doctor near Ajijic so two birds would make for a wonderful stay. Please help us if you know of some hearing aid options. Stan and April
  4. Folktraveler@gmail.com (33) 36414182 I got down here without a car, teach history all week at the American School, live in Col. Providencia but would love to try to find a way to hook up with you guys.. Stan
  5. Musical friends I've some great uke books and some video programs that teach uke basics, get a uke, we can learn together. There really his no more happy an instrument than ukulele AND it isn't all about Hawaiian music... there was a ukulele craze in the 30's and many sophisticated chords that are damn hard to play on a guitar are actually not that hard on a traditionally tuned four string uke. Any group I would be involved in would have to be evenings or weekends because I will be teaching History at the American School Foundation Guadalajara. There is joy in music Stan
  6. We are moving to Guadalajara in July. I have been playing Tenor Ukulele for a year now and belong to two groups where I currently live. One is all ukulele and meets once a month, the other is old farts folk musicians that also meets once a month.. I NEED TO FIND SOMETHING LIKE THIS IN GUADALAJARA. My musical interests range from 30's-40's Jazz song book to folk and what ever.... calling all musicians!!!!! Stan Cooper
