  1. ETN arrives at the bus station in Nuevo Laredo. Walk out front of the building and you'll see the taxis. Ask to go to the bridge. (Be sure to ask first how much is the fare, else you will be taken for 2 rides :-) Fare 2 years ago was 50 pesos. Taxi will let you out right in front of the bridge. Join the line to walk across. You will need your passport. Really easy. I love walking that bridge. I do it pulling a suitcase. On the other end of the bridge there are taxis you can take to wherever.
  2. We are talking about a haute cuisine French restaurant. I do not think you know what that is, what the cooking principles involved are, what the philosophies are. What you are saying about hamburgers or whatever makes no sense in this context. It's not at all about just coming up with popular tasty items and putting them on the menu! I do not judge people by wealth, and I am by no means wealthy. I said nothing about judging anyone by money. That all came from your head. Ditto your comments about snobbery. I did not make this post to argue with you or anyone else, just to inform. If I insulted anyone as you allege, then I truly apologize to them.
  3. A hamburger is not haute cuisine.
  4. Haha. If they imported a few real French waiters they'd probably toss you out on your ear for asking for such a thing there. The place in Chapalita was very upscale and expensive. We need more places Lakeside where people leave the shorts at home. The escargot I've had were worth every sou.
  5. Have no more details. That was what we were told when we called for a reservation. Later on I sent an email and asked just that, where and when. Waiting for a response.
  6. I would like to know, too. Ditto the UV light (which continues to shine even when it is no longer effective).
  7. For those familiar with the fine French restaurant, Le Honneur, in Parque Juan Diego near Chapalita in Guadalajara, the bad news is the restaurant has closed. The good news is they are moving to Ajijic.

  10. Those prices are for Tennis and Pickleball. Says so right at the top of the sign. The new Board has a new policy for swimming: you must have a club ID card, particularly for the water aerobics classes.
  11. Ana Martha Kabande has been doing this for a long time. She recently returned from vacation. It might be a good time to set something up with her. Here's her email: anakabande@gmail.com
  12. Ibarra, I just checked, the appointment site works fine as always. Click on a green square. It will turn yellow, then you choose a time below, You must go here to make the appointment: https://citas.jalisco.gob.mx/movilidad/client/newAppointment?eiid=22&lid=4 If you speak Spanish (no facilitators allowed in with you), this is the least painful way to renew. I had an 11:30 appointment. It took me 39 minutes to walk out with my new license.
  13. My license was expired 1 month. This was in no way an issue when I renewed.
  14. You can make an appointment to renew your Jalisco driver license. People with appointments go to a separate facility in Guad that does not accept walk-ins on appointment days. You need to show up 10 minutes before your time and not be late. When I was there the guard at the door would not allow anyone but the appointee inside, no facilitators/translators. (However, when the guards changed some minutes later, the new guard allowed a translator person to enter.) I suggest you don't try this appointment method if you are illiterate. There were 5 stations to progress thru, each with a specific purpose. They were very efficient. At the payment station I showed my INAPAM card to the "guard" and I was immediately sent to the head of the line (there were about 15 people waiting). It took me 39 minutes from the time I walked in on Tuesday until I left with license in hand. I had to wait 20 days for my appointment, as the reservation system works 20 days ahead. From what I understand, but did NOT confirm, you have 90 days to renew after your license expires. When I made my appointment I carried a copy of it in my car.

  15. Thanks, oregontochapala! Never used to be able to use non-Mexican cards or PayPal. I just paid my CFE using a foreign card.
