  1. yes, for years we had to return to the states, one time for 5 months. just go to the machine pay with cash and each 2 months it will take the credited money from the surplus. It worked perfect and no problems. You can also look online from canada or the states to monitor it.
  2. Rafael, 331 216 5892 we use him always. He will negociate. $500 a day usually. Ask for discount if weekly,
  3. we were just there yesterday. Saw lots of wheelchairs but dont know if they were rentals. Been to many zoos in the U.S. Too Hot or cold, cement slabs, lots of walking could only endure 2 hours. Yesterday were there 5 hours. So nice. Best zoo Ive ever been in. Simply beautiful. Dont miss the african safari. ride in a big truck, feed the garafes. In the monkey cage little tiny monkeys actually can pet. Will jump on your shoulder and try to search in your purse...so cute. Ride the train to avoid walking alot. The sky lift is so relaxing and can see things that you would not normally see. Just a great zoo and the hamburgers are pretty good.
  4. Yes Ernesto Barron is from the states. His father works with him and he is totally bilingual, in fact has a kansan accent...lol....does lawn care and even huge projects. Very hardworking and totally honest. very dear friends
  5. Chuy Jimenez 331 048 5343, hard working, honest
  6. Yes you have to drive very very defensive. For example In the U.S. you can generally expect that people will drive by the rules, people passing on the left, stopping for stop signs, stop lights etc. But here the rules are "optional". We have also hit many motorcycles passing on the right and people not stopping for red lights. So whatever you do be on the look out and expect the unexpected. We have mostly mexican friends. It is little like the "wild west" which in many ways is good. People take justice into their own hands because many times the law does not. We have a good friend who was a member of a neighborhood watch. If a mexican man was beating his wife consistenatly, he was warned, then if he did not stop, he was taken out into the woods and i wont tell you what they did to him but he was never the same. He was able to work but disabled in a way. Weve seen, when the law does not meet their responsibility, the people will. Anyway, we love it here, yes take personal responsibility for everything

  8. Hello Apachewoman: I tried to pm you but for whatever reason i could not. There are 4 mexican women total. Yes i will ask them if they would be interested and get back with you. Thank you for your offer. I will contact them now.
  9. ok Dostortas. I sent you a reply. I just called my friend and if she cannot for whatever reason, I have 2 other mexican adult women friends in our church that are awesome, kind loving and patient in their late 30's early 40's. I hope we can help you as disabled people are little angels from heaven...that are here to teach us to be unselfish and giving!!!
  10. I have a mexican friend in her 40's who has worked as a house cleaner for another mexican woman for 5 years. The boss paid her a horrible wage, not even the average and she worked 6 days a week, with no time for even lunch. And treated her in a condescending way. And she endured these conditions because, as you know work is scarce. Do you need a house cleaner, or cook or help in someway? She lives in Chapala but would be willing to take the bus which is 7 pesos each way to riberas or Ajijic as she lives in Chapala. PM me if interested and thank you so much in advance.
  11. She was seen in Mirasol at 9am today Monday Jan 21st, heading towards Ajijic
  12. until you get a new debit card you can use XOOM and have money sent from your bank to walmart (and other places) and pick up immediately $4.99 fee for up to $900 US.
  13. ok, yes i read that article and it is in the works, thank you so very much !!!!!
  14. A great friend of ours totally bilingual Barron's Lanscaping has his own truck and own equipment. Excellent prices and very hard working. Was getting so much work that he had to turn some people down and felt very bad for that. He just returned from helping his father move here permanently to help him. His father taught him the business and they are very very good. So if anyone needs a good Lawn man that is reliable and honest, please call him. Ernesto and Demitrio Barron : 331 267 9364
