  1. Why not get on the diaper subscription list, $10 US or equiv. pesos a month? This is a long term need for this special little girl.
  2. I have used Pharr several times before I knew better. You are right, you must make your own decisions. I really am wrong telling people about the route, it would be crowded if they all knew. There is not the feeling you are running a gauntlet as there is on the Matehuala way, more real and leasurly traveling.
  3. MC, You obviously have never used the Los Indios bridge. The route avoids all crowded cities on both sides of the border. Check the route, you will see.
  4. From San Antonio, I take the road to Harlingen, Texas and cross at the Free Trade Bridge at Los Indios, Texas. From entering we go this way: https://www.google.com/maps/dir/Ajijic,+Jalisco,+Mexico/26.1498862,-97.6674668/29.4294162,-98.4649565/@27.5766639,-110.883137,4.21z/data=!4m10!4m9!1m5!1m1!1s0x842f414c90a728b5:0xb8d60a7105a49d63!2m2!1d-103.2634411!2d20.2995464!1m0!1m0!3e0 It is not the tourist trail, but the Green Angels patrol the route. Much less tolls and traffic, shorter and a more tranquil driving experience. No lemmings either.
  5. My place too only sells liability. Note, get the least coverage offered. It will still be way more than what is required by the states.
  6. Absolutely! Read the page's information: 2 poniente, Ajijic.
  7. If you are addressing me you are patently wrong.
  8. See it here: https://www.google.com/maps/@20.301368,-103.262595,3a,33.1y,216.62h,78.71t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1sG5h1fYfcayrlgr4jHewoYA!2e0!7i13312!8i6656
  9. How, please, does one that arrives from the north at the new station cheaply get to Chapala/Ajijic? I won't be able to drive forever.
  10. Another US falsehood. I went to a pain doctor (US) for lower back pain and he prescribed the Voltaren Gel 1%. He may have been an Iranian, but surely not a veterinarian. It was quite expensive, even with insurance, but had the blessing from my other doctors that have me taking no NSAIDs. By prescription only in the US. http://voltarengel.com/consumer/default.aspx
  11. The strongest OTC pain reliever available in Mexico is Tramadol (Ultram). It is not a NSAID and not an anti-inflammatory. It is a weak opioid good for moderate to sever pain. My doctor (US) took me off NSAIDs in favor of it. I too have had rotator cuff problems and after hearing about the surgical consequences opted for cortisone injections and rest. Each shoulder took 5 to 6 months to heal. I would not waste my time and money for any chiropractor, gentle or rough. They only treat problems that will go away with them or without them. As of August 2014, the DEA (Drug Enforcement Administration)
  12. Not so! All prescription NSAIDs, like CELEBREX, ibuprofen, naproxen, and meloxicam have the same cardiovascular warning. They may all increase the chance of heart attack or stroke that can lead to death. This chance increases if you have heart disease or risk factors for it, such as high blood pressure or when NSAIDs are taken for long periods. https://www.celebrex.com/default.aspx
  13. Possible? Well, it's three miles between the two checkpoints and I do not recall a sidewalk.
