  1. Hello all,

    I have a senior citizen friend (lived here 17 years) looking for a companion, female if possible, to the border through Macallan, Tx and if wanted further on.

    She is also willing to take mail or small packages up to ship IF they are paid for or you figure the cost and pay her for them.

    Bring them opened with sealing take to seal in her presence.

    I will be checking my mail daily and can put you in touch with her at her MX cell or house or US phone #s.

    If you can contribute something to gas costs and tolls it would be appreciated, but if not that's OK.


    Ride share filled.

  2. Lots of good info here.

    As one whom has lived in Las Fuentes (couldn't stand the complaining), Joco (Ruidotepec), Puerto Corona, Joco again in 2 barrios, an agave farm above San Luciano just northeast of Las Fuentes, Los Galapagos, Chapala 3 blocks above the bus station, Agua Escondido, Ixtlahuacán de los Membrillos and finally just below El Limon.

    With friends I visit fairly often all around the lake I can say with absolute certainly (jajajaja) the best place to live is somewhere I won't mention since I'm waiting for a home to rent or buy in that area, SAT-Riberas if you don't mind the daily traffic, Ajijic if you are involved with activities at LCS, etc or the north shore if you speak passable Mexican and can stay home on the weekends (Guad to Mazamitla traffic is intense).

    What is important to me is not to others and vice-versa.

    Considering my mother paid $8,000 USD/Yr in 2015 for a 2 bedroom 1,200 sq ft home and got few services for it (public schools ate most of the taxes) I am not about to complain about what I pay here for a 1,600 sq ft 3 bedroom home with a lake and mountain vista even if my local streets are beat to &%*!.

    Considering the State of Freedom has seceded from the Union I much prefer living almost anywhere in Mexico.

  3. Does anyone know if SRE Guadalajara is following the posted rules of testing, specifically the section which says that minors and those over 60 do NOT have to take the cultural exam?


    3. En el caso del extranjero al que la Secretaría de Gobernación considere refugiado, así como cuando se trate de menores de edad y personas mayores de sesenta años, será suficiente que acrediten saber hablar español, a través del examen de idioma.

    In the case of the foreigner whom the Ministry of the Interior considers a refugee, as well as when dealing with minors and people over sixty years, it will be sufficient that they prove they know how to speak Spanish, through the language test.

  4. Ana is good.

    I recommend the Telcel store kitty corner from Coppel in Chapala

    A lot of repairs are done by people in San Juan de Dios just south of Plaza Tapatia in Guad.

    I've taken several types of electronics there over the past 15 years with good success.

    Most electronics I do myself including phones. I only repair for myself and very close friends.
