  1. McDonald's. There are many hotels also that you could go to and then be picked up. I just came back from there last week. I paid 500 pesos for taxi from estacion de autobus in Nuevo Laredo all the way to the Laredo airport. I thought that was a very good price. I asked the driver how much before we left NL, gave him that much when we got to the airport. There were cabs parked just on the other side of the bridge. You can probably just get out of the MX cab and get right into one from Laredo.
  2. I bought 2 kinds of pears today at Soriana. I bought pears last week at El Torito. I bought pears the week before at a small store in Ajijic. Many choices other than Walmart.
  3. http://gobiernoenlinea1.jalisco.gob.mx/vehicular/ Need your plate number and vin number. You can also check this site at the beginning of the year for your annual renewal fees. Hope this helps!
  4. I would imagine only the store manager's or Campbell's themselves could answer your question. I have found more choices of this brand at SuperLake and El Torito than at Walmart or Soriana.
  5. We signed up for SP about a month ago in Chapala. I have Permanente status and my husband nationalized 5 years ago. No problems.
  6. A message appears after you enter how much you want to withdraw. It is on the bottom of the screen. The right side is Yes, I accept. The left side is. No, I decline. Choose the left side for no surcharge. You will then receive your withdrawal.
  7. https://www.fvap.gov/arizona That is the site we used to register to vote. We haven't lived in the U.S. for 22 years. Used our last address in the U.S. when required, but, we are registered as living in MX. No need to have a current U.S. address to VoteFromAbroad absentee.
  8. We were among her first patients lakeside. Never a problem. My husband has had extensive dental work and very happy with her.
  9. Back to the original post... We ate there today for the first time. We both had Fish and Chips. We couldn't find it at first on the menu but, that is because we were looking in the wrong place. Fish and Chips is listed as an appetizer for 120 pesos. The order came with 4 pieces of fish, rectangle, about 4 inches long by about 1 inch wide. It also came with a lot of french fries, too many actually. We both had enough to eat but decided to splurge and split a brownie with vanilla ice cream. It was delicious. We think they may be using Ghiradelli Brownie Mix from Costco. We will being going back soon~
  10. Here are some websites that may help: https://mx.usembassy.gov/u-s-citizen-services/local-resources-of-u-s-citizens/bringing-items-into-mexico-u-s/ https://fmirentals.com/bringing-food-mexico/ https://yucalandia.com/answers-to-common-questions/what-can-i-bring-into-mexico-mexican-customs-rules-the-article/
  11. Search using the words EYE EXAM. There are quite a few past posts.
  12. We lived in Arizona for many years. Our experience is, if a scorpion wants in, they will get in. They are nomads. We use Cynoff also and are very happy with it. Whenever we find a scorpion, it is dead. We have two dogs and they are not bothered by Cynoff. You can buy it just about anywhere (the most expensive place that I have found is the Garden Center). It is inexpensive, around 70 pesos for a packet. It is a little packet that you mix with water. We use an old Home Defense large spray bottle. Pour in the mix, fill with water, shake and you are ready.
  13. Does anyone know why access to the area on the malecon is blocked leading to the statue of Jesus? There does not appear to be any construction in that area.
  14. From their website "... platters of fried shrimp, cod, and chicken". This is off topic. The topic is La Placena.
  15. There are tons of Long John Silvers in the U.S.
