  1. These protesters were not looting. Residents of Fracc. Los Agaves are demonstrating for their rights to access running water. Due to the lack of water, the local school has also been cancelling classes and parents are concerned about the education (and lack thereof) that their children are receiving. For future reference, I recommend checking the Trafico ZMG facebook page https://www.facebook.com/traficozmg/?fref=ts and downloading the "Waze" app on your phone https://www.waze.com/ for updates on traffic conditions. As the name suggests, "Trafico ZMG" is limited to the greater metro
  2. If you're not able to find anyone on this webboard, I suggest trying out "Bla bla car". Horrible name, but a great concept and there are many PV-GDL options https://www.blablacar.com/ There are also a number of ride share facebook groups, such as rides San Pancho-GDL-PV https://www.facebook.com/groups/345201275625765/?fref=ts Good luck!

The Costco guys had a good laugh at our predicament, repaired the punctured tire and guaranteed their work for a grand total of $60.00 MXN.

  5. HI Lobos! I would first try contacting solar panel installers lakeside. As green roofs complement solar technology, they may have some contacts in the area! In Guadalajara I know of FIP 360┬║ Facilitaci├│n Integral de Proyectos and EcoTejado. The folks at Azoteas Vivientes may be able to guide you in the right direction (azoteas.vivientes@gmail.com) http://www.ecotejado.com/ https://www.facebook.com/Fip360/ If those options don't pan out, you could also look to DF. A few years ago Mexico City's government announced financial incentives for builders including green roofs in their projects. Becau
  6. I recommend subscribing to Netflix. Their entire Mexican catalogue comes with Spanish subtitles and there are quite a few Mexican dramas and telenovelas on offer. There are also some excellent local documentaries, last week we watched "Eco de la Montana".
  7. The Guadalajara Reporter just published an article in English on this little guy. Ouch! http://www.theguadalajarareporter.com/index.php/news/news/regional/47085-health-department-issues-alert-on-toxic-creepy-crawler
