  1. Yes, we are looking to avoid inspection slowdown, and we are coming from the East / New Orleans area. Those two points in mind, best recommendations. Apologies should have mentioned that earlier.
  2. We are planning to re-enter Mexico late October. (Update fyi: we are coming from direction of New Orleans) We normally enter through Laredo. To those who have entered recently through TEXAS border crossings, (in past couple of months) what was your experience like? And lastly; Is anyone (like us) planning their entry come last week in October/to Ajijic/Chapala?
  3. Most return due to family or medical. That has been what we have gleamed in first hand accounting from those we know whom decide to return. No matter when we move, I would never drop our NOB insurance. The higher misdiagnosis rates in countries such as Mexico, and the missed diagnosis for life threatening issues, are a harsh reality. We wish we had known the limitations of medical here in the lake Chapala area, prior to simply believing that it was wonderful. There were a few people on the boards who wrote, informing about a missed diagnosis (for serious issues such as cancer), where they were given a clean bill of health. That can mess up a life planned here, and necessitate early return to the states. The lesson learned is do review most of your medical (via travel back) NOB if you are fortunate to have US or CA health insurance.

  5. How did the test run turn out for you and did you stick with ATT?
  6. Dust and smoke are visible examples of PM10, but more than 90 percent of particulate matter isn't visible to the naked eye. We call these substances “fine particulate matter” or “PM2.5.” The particles have a diameter of less than 2.5 micrometers, which means they can only be seen underneath a microscope. In other words you are only seeing about 10% of the pollution, and what is visible. The more harmful pollution is what the ACI stations are reporting. You cannot see that 90%.
  7. The Santa Fe, Air Monitoring Station (25 miles North of Ajijic is reporting an ACI (Air Quality Index) of over 154, Monday, Jan 15 (following link will update as index changes). This is a red alert index (vs yellow or orange) with only green being in the healthy range. This assumed lake mist reaches 8 hours North as one travels to the border. http://aqicn.org/map/northamerica/#@g/20.4625/-103.1232/10z
  8. 1-We know that many burn wood here. 2-With pollution levels TWICE that of NYC in neighboring Guad. that pollution plays a huge part. 3-Plus the fact that we are in a valley, ringed by mountains makes that even worse. NYC: http://aqicn.org/city/usa/newyork/ps-19/ Guadalajara: http://www.aqicn.org/city/guadalajara Do you really believe this is lake mist?
  9. I wanted to believe that evaporation theory also. However, it extends far beyond the lake, including routes into Guad., Evaporation does not cause sinus infection.
  10. It appears the standard for smog season is now extended, beyond the April May months. Last April was the worst yet. Smog is now here in November. Any thoughts as to why this is so much worse than prior years? Just look across the lake. There isn't any denying. From Joco to Chapala. (Maybe there are forest fires raging?) Guad appears to have LESS haze over their mountains. PM2.5 is very high in Guad today. ranging a high of between 90 - 107 (see link below) www.aqicn.org/city/guadalajara
