  1. Not sure whether or not the bank will give you the 50% discount you are entitled to with an Inapam card? Went to Recaudadora and received the 50% Inapam discount off the original 642p total for the driver's license renewal fee.
  2. Took me 3 trips there before they accepted my Tel-Mex, which is only bill in my name as proof of address. They were impossible ! Seemed like they took delight in rejecting it. First time, I just had front page with my name and address. Second time, I had entire document, BUT because Tel-Mex made typo on front page saying that it was page 2 of 4, they rejected the fact that the entire bill was only 3 pages, although I tried to explain several times that this was the entire bill and the typo was a mistake. The supervisor came out and looked and it and said " falta pagina cuatro" des
  3. Yes, directly across the street from the Yacht Club, on the left. More specifically, turn left into the driveway just before Lupita Cafe and you will wind up in the big parking lot. Building will be to your left as you drive in.
  4. I recommend Daniel Jackson on 29-A Hidalgo, near corner of Juarez, in Ajijic. His number is 376-766-2223. He repaired a broken glass crystal in my watch and did an excellent job at reasonable price.
  5. Regarding the Russian Sputnik vaccine, the 91% efficacy is being reported by the Russians. The 73-85% efficacy is being reported by Reuters. Which source do you believe ?
  6. Not the way I see it. Would not want to be one of the ones falling into the 15- 27% of ineffective population. Furthermore , we have no idea if that ineffective population will get full blown cases of Covid or not. You are talking about maybe milder symptoms? I think the ineffective could lead to death ! Mexico should and needs to do better! https://www.stamfordadvocate.com/hdn/hrlm/p/fastly_redirect.html?dm=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.stamfordadvocate.com%2Fnews%2Farticle%2FMexico-s-pandemic-policy-No-police-No-curfews-15898157.php
  7. Cuidado on the Russian Sputnik and the Chinese vaccine. Current data on the Sputnik shows only 73-85% effectiveness and Brazilian trial of the Chinese vaccine came in around 50-58%. Neither of those is a good option for Mexico. At those rates, people will continue to spread, get and die from Covid in Mexico. We need better options from those and hope the Mx govt wakes up and realizes they are not solving the Covid problem with those two vaccines. Another confusing question: if you take one of the sub-standard vaccines, like the Sputnik or Chinese, could you follow up with a Mo
  8. Once again I agree with Mudgirl. I , too, applaud those that have recuperated from Covid and have the common sense to learn from their bad experience and habits. For example, former Gov. Chris Christie came on TV and was very apologetic for his not practicing safe habits prior to getting Covid. He set the record straight and was enlightened by his illness. I hope the same for AMLO ! Hope that this is a learning experience and that a light bulb goes on in his head and smart words about safe practices come out of his mouth moving forward !
  9. I agree with Mudgirl. If he wants to downplay the seriousness of this virus and by doing so, put the lives of his Mxn. constituents at risk, then he doesn't deserve any treatment. Not hateful, just a fact ! They won't "understand it" unless they get a taste of their own nonsense. Other leaders treated with best medicines, continued on by saying "Covid is no big deal !" Seriously ??? I think Mexico has the highest death rate per capita than other. any other country. SAD when leaders do not take it seriously!
  10. I recommend Dra Justina Lopez on Carretera just west of Dental Express. Her phone is 376-766-5563. She is affordable and very good, both her and her staff !
  11. That is great to hear about the favorable change of ownership, treatment of customers, and quality of the menu at La Taverna ! After hearing "horror stories" of the previous owner from his wait staff while they were located in West Ajijic, I refused to go to the new location in SAT. One example was how he forced his employees to turn over their tips to him and in return he used it to pay their salaries. However, my question regarding your experience at La Pacena is: if your treatment there was so shabby, then why were you so gracious enough to leave such a generous tip? In my opini
  12. I have used Juan, now with Los Atloss Gas, for over 9 yrs. He is prompt and honest. Phone is 333-971-0630. Regarding knife sharpeners, how do you know which guy you are getting? How much does the reasonably priced guy approximately charge, say for 10 kitchen knives?
  13. Thanks to all of you who have clarified that we only need our old registration card. Angus, I think the Inapam card discount only applies to getting or renewing Driver's Licenses, not plates. Thanks !
  14. Everyone goes off topic talking about stickers and how long you stand in line. So, is the answer to my question, from Mopsy, that you only need your old registration card ( ie Tarjeta de Circulacion)? Thanks Mopsy.
  15. Last year, I had provided a lot of information, ( VISA, CURP, RFC, Map of Domilio, receipt of last years Tarjeta, and the actual Tarjeta de Circulcion). However, most people have told me you only need to show your latest Tarjeta de Circulacion to obtain the new one. Can anyone clarify exactly what documents are required to get the new Tarjeta ( including stickers and all)? Thank you.
