  1. When we drove by the restaurant this morning just before 9am, the restaurant and other locales in that strip mall were all closed.
  2. I think an Ajijic Archives page is a wonderful idea.
  3. LOL for your excellent spelling Mike.
  4. My friend has used Dr. Jung on two occasions and has been very satisfied with the service he received.
  5. Well, wouldn't you know, last night it finally worked. We also watch without VPN for both Prime Video and Netflix.
  6. Anyone who just needs foot nails trimmed - there is a 'podologo' in Chapala on the lake side just before you get to Madero. He used to be on the corner of the building (ground floor), but is now located one or two locales towards Madero. Keep your eye out for his sign in the window.
  7. Good to know from a resident of Chapala. Then I just say I would like to see them in the village of Ajijic.
  8. For the last two evenings in a row we have been unable to open Prime Video, and yet during the day we can. Tried contacting Prime Video directly, but they told me they could not help as our settings to Prime were through Amazon.mx and we would have to contact them. Well, after spending almost half an hour trying to do it, I gave up. Has anyone else had that problem and found a solution to it? We are able to open Netflix at night so I don't think it is an internet problem, but must be a Prime problem. Any help would be appreciated. By the way, we have Ilox high-speed internet.
  9. I am already registered. They told me that once the election writ was dropped, that my voting kit would be sent to me by courier. I seem to recall them saying that there would be enclosed a return waybill so it can be sent back to them by courier.
  10. So glad the Transitos are doing their job. They could make so much more revenue for the municipality by enforcing the traffic laws, especially in Ajijic. You never see Transitos in the village of Ajijic (or Chapala for that matter). They could make a ton of money there with parking spaces taken up by boxes or whatever else the owners of the businesses put out to prevent parking. I just wish they would also crack down on the use of cell phones while driving. We see so many people driving around lakeside with the damn phone either stuck to their ear, or the driver's head down looking at it. Just my little rant.
  11. I would also like more information on this. Are their quoted rates in US dollars or Canadian. How much does it cost to rent the android box? We have good speeds as we have Ilox, but we currently use Shaw satellite for 500 pesos a month, and I believe that rate is hard to beat.
  12. And they are excellent there. Have had them many times.
  13. Just so you know in future, it is "Tinaco".
  14. But they didn't say they wanted to become citizens of Mexico. They said they wanted to get their RP (I assume that means Residente Permanente).
  15. Ajijic is overflowing with gringos and Mexicans almost all year round now. If I had to do it over, I would live in Chapala as things are cheaper, especially rents and you don't have to spend time and gasoline stuck in traffic on the Carretera (highway). They have Soriana, which is a little more expensive than Walmart, but not that much. During high season when the snowbirds are here, traffic on the Carretera between San Antonio and West Ajijic is a slow process to get anywhere. San Juan Cosala is a little too rustic for me. I think my Spanish is good enough to survive in Jocotepec, but now I like Chapala more. Many nice people there. I think you can find rentals in Chapala almost anytime of the year. Ajijic is a little more difficult in high season.
  16. Switch to Ilox if it is in your neighbourhood. We did and are extremely happy with it. Have speeds between 45 and 90 Mbps. Sure service drops once in a while, but not that often. We are very happy and pay the same price 599 pesos as we did with Telmex, except have better service.
  17. Proud to see that this project is going so well.
  18. Is there any plan in the future to recycle compostable plastic bags. I notice more stores are starting to use these. Also, a Mexican wine called "California", which is in a tetra box says "reciclame" on the carton. It would be great if these, along with tetra boxes for milk could be recycled (as many people use these), as well as paper. I know paper is the least valuable item, and currently I take mine to a place just as you enter Chapala as they take it and I don't expect any payment for it, although they do show above the place that they pay for paper.
  19. Steren corded and cordless phone (see picture). Bought new approx. 4 years ago for 1629 pesos. Works well. If interested, either pm me or call 331-382-4771.
  20. Light fixtures suitable for wall or ceiling. We used for ceiling, but would work just as well for a small bathroom. We have two, but one of the globes on one is broken (the glass part). That is why we are selling so cheaply (the second one is free). Perhaps you can find another glass part. If interested please call 331-382-4771 or send me a pm.
  21. Dra. Angelica Andana off the Carretera in Mirasol, near the gym.
  22. Alejandro and his team do excellent work. He will also drop by to see your chair first and give you an estimate.
  23. There is a furniture store next to Sunrise Cafe on the Carretera in San Antonio (can't think of the name). They have good quality furniture. There is another called San Francisco in Chapala on the SE corner of Francisco Madero and Hidalgo, right as you enter Chapala. May not be as good quality as the one in SAT but passable. Otherwise, try any of the local bazaars. Good idea to rent Air BNB and have a good look around first.
  24. She said it's a small yard so that most likely won't matter.
  25. I used the Scotiabank machine this morning and all was fine.
