  1. From what I remember, if you are buying a new car, there is no fee as he gets paid by the dealer. The fee comes into play when you are purchasing a used vehicle.
  2. I did find it! A friend of mine came with me and we stopped in for some goodies. I must say it was quite good. I spent some of my childhood years in France and I remember the bakeries...... I am very fussy and the croissants were excellent. Also, very nice they actually do speak French, so a chance to speak the language as well. I will go back and try some of the other treats.
  3. Where is a good place to order contact lenses at a reasonable rate?
  4. She will do it for you. We are currently out of the area, however, we will be back there on Wednesday and can meet with you anytime after that. You will like her. She was with the Peace Corps and has lived in many places and much experience with animals, gardening, etc. and is a very sweet person. I sent you a private message. I don't know if you saw it. I will call you upon our arrival. We will be back there late Wednesday afternoon.
  5. We have a friend from the US looking to do some pet sitting. She has a veterinary background & farming background. She's great with plants as well. She is also fluent in Spanish. Please let me know if you know anyone needing her services. She will pet sit in exchange for a place to stay.
  6. Here is an update. It works just as Sparks stated. I brought four documents to the Chapala location. These were copies: Passport. Permanente, CURP and one original utility bill from Telmex which was not in our name. No lease or any originals were requested. No questions were asked. Now I think I had an oversight as evidently there is some type of booklet from what I can determine, based on some of the posts. The woman who processed us said nothing about any booklet, however, I know I cannot count on their communicating necessary information. Could someone please tell me where I need to go for the booklet and what to ask for?
  7. I am still asking the original question. Where is the location of SP Centro de Salud or the list of locations? There seems to be no consistency as to whether or not I need my lease and does it need to be in Spanish? RV no longer lives here, so I am not convinced I can rely on his information.
  8. Do you have to ask for this booklet or is it provided at the time you sign up?
  9. No lease in any language needed? Where is the nearest Centro de Salud? We live near Chapala. Did electric bill have to be in your name?
  10. Where do we go to apply? Not sure I understand the process. We bring our documents and they don't give you the coverage on that visit? We go back on the week-end to see a doctor and what does he do?
  11. Not sure what you mean by Visa as we are obviously Permanente. The original visa was a Tourist visa and we no longer have that.
  12. Don't have lease in Spanish, so I suppose I have to ask the landlord to provide that.
  13. What documents are needed to sign up for Seguro Popular? I searched on the site, and there were many postings, but I did not find this information.
  14. Ok. Went where to buy the french pastries? I could not find where the name, etc., of the place is mentioned.
  15. Any idea what it would be called? I tried several options on Google translate and nothing yielded the proper results on the Home Depot site.
  16. We are in need of additional storage. We are familiar with the self storage facility here. What we are looking for is a way to create additional outside storage on the site where we are currently renting. Are there any prefabricated structures that may be purchased? If so, where to look. Any suggestions will be appreciated.
  17. I would also like to know who that is. It is important that we share this type of information with each other. It is good if we can help each other.
  18. I am speaking from our personal experience as I definitely don't know everything. He was unable to prescribe what my spouse needed, so we ended up having to go to someone else. I am just giving a comment as this is what happened with us. If others get good treatment from him, then I am happy for them. It is never about me being right or an expert. No need to attack.
  19. I second everything you just said. Government offers nothing but expenses and aggravation. It's all about control and getting money they have not earned.
  20. He is limited in what he can prescribe and this is not his specialty.
  21. That has been our experience as well. They do not ask for your Tourist or other documents when you turn in the TIP. We flew out and left our car once while we were on Tourist visa. Later we drove our car out and got our deposit back.
