  1. Recently, I bought 6 bottles of wine at Walmart. I was overcharged 20 pesos for each bottle, which was a total of 120 pesos. I waited for them to correct the price. Is 120 pesos a fortune? No! But neither is it small potatoes.
  2. Convenient parking. They are many fruit and vegetable stores on the carretera selling wonderful produce, but parking is such an issue, it's not worth the bother.
  3. I used to maintain an account with Actinver but found their service fees punitive. Also, the U.S. Internal Revenue Service requires you to include, in your tax filings, foreign bank accounts with balances over U.S. $10,000. Rather than paying my accountant an extra fee to include this step, I closed down my account. I do not pay any fees to maintain my U.S. bank account, and they reimburse any ATM fees incurred when withdrawing cash, domestically or in foreign countries.
  4. Thank you both, Lily H and Ibarra.
  5. Where on the HSBC ATM screen is the decline button located?
  6. What exchange rate are they giving? In addition to the 17 peso fee, are they charging a surcharge like HSBC?

    Great Burgers

    What does this have to do with the quality and price of a hamburger being served in a restaurant? It's a good thing you've helped your housekeeper improve the quality of her life, but it still has nothing to do with the topic being discussed here. If you wish to discuss philanthropy, start another post, and see who can outdo whom.
  8. Is Ishmat's fried chicken and burger joint open yet?
  9. Please, speak for yourselves. I have lots of common sense, and developed patience of Job.
  10. I have Vonage (VOIP), and like it. Although you can make calls to the U.S. using Mexican telephone services, I like the convenience of having a U.S. number so that my bank, credit card companies, etc., can call me. Some financial institutions will not call you on an out of the country telephone number.

    Do you mean Green Guy, who sells the nicely packaged arugula, etc.?
  12. Thank you so much for posting both days and times. I really appreciate it.
  13. Does anyone have the days, and hours, of when the recycling center in West Ajijic is open? Or for that matter, is it still in operation?
