  1. The Canadian Consulate does not offer any services in the Chapala/Ajijic area. They don't come out here periodically. To find out what you need to do you can call them at 333-671-4740. It is a very easy office to get to in Guad.
  2. Maybe all that is needed is your recipe for your version of the real thing. The recipe has certainly changed through the years here. It is difficult to make it in that quantity. But everyone does their best. Everything that night is done by volunteers trying to make it enjoyable for the guests. Not quite sure why you are all being so critical. So don't come if you don't like it.
  3. So are you offering to make it for 200+ guests at Burns Night this year?
  4. Tepehua Treasures in Riberas next to Computerland has one for 30 pesos, I noticed today.
  5. Walking in Cristiania Park last week, we noticed a roped off area at the car park to the north with what looked like two helicopter pads marked out.
  6. That's a wonderful photo of him, with his memorable smile. We will miss him.
  7. I'm glad you had a good day. I'm sorry if it is rare, I would hope for more for you. We stay because we, more often than not, experience good days in some ways. It is getting much more expensive, so it's nice to get a good deal. We used to think accomplishing one significant thing in a day was great, and more than one, fantastic. But service and availability of service has increased. So you had a fantastic day and that is super! I wish you lots more, and now expect them. After all, these people are smart and kind.
  8. SCOTTISH COUNTRY DANCING - It’s old… it’s new… it’s social… it’s fun! Scottish country dance is the traditional social dance of Scotland It’s based on ancient folk dances, mixed with elements of ballet, influences from the Royal court of France and some overlap with Highland dancing. It was carried around the world by Scottish immigrants, workers, and Highland Regiments. It remains popular worldwide, in unlikely places such as Holland, Japan and Moscow, and anywhere the Scots went. Some people can pick it up on the fly, but the better way is to take lessons. It is challenging mentally and great aerobic exercise. Anyone who dances SCD will tell you “it’s fun!” Who: LCS members, no partners required When: Thursdays 11:15 - 1pm from Oct 17 Where: LCS Gazebo
  9. We are going to the Canadian Consulate on Friday October 11. If you want us to take your ballot in for you, call 376-766-2722.

  11. I am taking mine into the Canadian Consulate on Friday this week. They have promised that so long as they receive the ballots by Oct 15th, they will get them up north on time. If you want me to take yours for you, PM me.
  12. He sets up music/mic inputs and speakers both outside on the patio, and in the event room. He also has controls to moderate it during the event. It is Robbie Burns Night at the Real de Chapala.
  13. I don't know if he does houses but Alex Flores in Ixtlahuacan always sets up the sound for Burns night. It's a little bit complex. He speaks good English and answers his phone ‭(33) 1229 7113‬
  14. The Tepehua ladies make them too, so there is quite a good selection at Tepehua Treasures in Riberas.
