  2. The gvt came last week and shut him down and he is in the Yucatan now tending to his sick father..
  3. Are there any places open where I can get my car washed? Thank you
  4. The Mexican economy is heading south quite quickly with the main drivers being oil revenue, tourism, exports and remittances from the states. All in shambles. Pemex downgraded to worse than junk and Mexico on the verge of being downgraded if not already to below investment quality. This is a big deal. No jobs, no money, no rental payments for local people. no food and its a a formula for worse crime. Many austeruty measures will ahve to be put in place.I wouldn't buy a home here now. I believe those who have to sell will take a haircut. I also see the fracc I am in have no rentals after the Canadians went home. Thats very telling. I believe this will take a very long time to recover and we haven't even talked about the effect of Covid. My surgeon after performing a heart procedure on me a few weeks back said to stay away from his hospital until August. I am not reading anything into it other than he knows something I dont.
  5. I was stopped by a traffic cop a few weeks ago for driving without a seat belt and not having an original of my stateside license. This guy seems to always be on either the Librammiento or at the entrace of La Floresta on the carretera. Nice fellow. Did not ask for mordida at all. Fine was about 1,000 pesos and 50% next day payment.
  6. He wants his 5 minutes of fame... I have to go now and drink some bleach/
  7. https://www.orlandosentinel.com/coronavirus/os-ne-coronavirus-tuesday-april-20-20200421-4zdn7yyq2fc2zciye37dqkjsxi-story.html
  8. I was very taken aback by the words of some climatologists that what we see now as in blue skies etc would be a bit permanent within at least 30 years if we acted like now. We have abused this country and the atmosphere that much.
  9. do you know when car licensing offices will be open in Chapala?
  10. I believe it was somewhere north of 15,000 pesos when I had it done. The crew who did it were amazing. Took around 4 hours because they had to get my pulse down to around 60 or 70 for the scan to be effective. They gave me the films and also 3d color pictures of my heart which also showed that I had slight anemeia. Got blood work and yes, i have it. . I was amazed. ..... https://www.radiologyinfo.org/en/info.cfm?pg=cardiacmr#overview https://www.google.com/search?rlz=1C1CHBF_enUS710US710&q=pictures+of+cardiac+MRI&tbm=isch&source=univ&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwj3yoiwwdfoAhUmmXIEHXV2CnIQ7Al6BAgEECw&biw=1366&bih=625
  11. Did I say I had an angiogram? I had far better and saw clear as day the occlusion. I had a High field Cadiac MRI . Thank for your snarky remarks. My procedure is being done next week.
  12. Its not a bit fishy and I would rather not mention this persons name for that DR is extremely well known and the report I got with the films said that I need to have this taken care of. I even saw the films and pointed out where it was needed. The films were taken in GDL. Thank you for your concern
  13. I have also been given Dr. Najar as a recommendation from some people in my complex. All say he is really good. Anyone here knows of Dr. Nahar? His practice is at San Francisco Asis hospital.
  14. Talked to my Ajijic based Doctor about stent and Dr Virgen was recommended. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Does he only work out of Los Angeles Del Carmen. I read reviews on it and most are not that wonderful.
  15. There is one coming to tapalpa centro but you wont know it until you pass it by. Conforms to the strict regulations with a very small sign. Coppels is there and you wouldn't know it.
  16. Tempeh is not soft protein. Tofu is. You can buy it at Ponchos or Superlake. They get it from Costco.
  17. “Travel isn’t always pretty. It isn’t always comfortable. Sometimes it hurts, it even breaks your heart. But that’s okay. The journey changes you; it should change you. It leaves marks on your memory, on your consciousness, on your heart, and on your body. You take something with you. Hopefully, you leave something good behind.” – Anthony Bourdain
  18. perhaps fixed costs are rising , as in rent. talked to a few well known restaurant owners who are treading water because of how high the rents have gone up for them. Also many variable costs I would assume have risen. The food is probably the cheapest part of the bill..
  19. I have the berkey system. Bought it from Amazon USA with filters, I also bought the additional chlorine filters to get out arsenic etc from water. Wouldnt use anything else. Nothing here comes close.
  20. Does anyone know of a store that sells those black and red licorice twisty candy? A very ill friend would like them and I really want to get them for him.
  21. I have a 4g flip phone GSM here with telcel Mexico. I need a USA number also . I can get a telcel america USA number sim card mailed to me. Will I have any issues using it in the telcel mexico gsm phone I have now.
