  1. This report tells the story of Lake Cuitzeo, with an area around 1/3rd the size of Lake Chapala located about 275 km east from here, which today is 70% dry. The story highlights a number of contributing factors -- dry weather, pollution, expanding cities, poor water management, the lack of infrastructure needed to collect and preserve rainfall. Can it happen here? "Doomed to Stay: The Dying Villages of Mexico’s Lake Cuitzeo" As Mexico’s reservoirs run dry, the fishermen, farmers and ranchers stuck on the drying lake beds wonder how they will survive.

  2. If you have a Samsung smart TV connected to the internet, "Samsung TV Plus" was introduced in Mexico earlier this year. This provides users with several free streaming TV channels, some of which are now showing Olympics coverage.

  3. I know TUDN Channel 5 and Azteca Sports Channel 7 will be providing coverage . (At this time on Friday morning they are broadcasting the opening ceremonies.)
  4. Thanks ibarra -- I edited my post to eliminate any confusion. - Brian D.
  5. Actually, one of the paintings by Efrén in his auction is from France! (Aix en Provence).
  6. The time required to renew a passport from inside the USA and outside the USA are not the same, and procedures vary when applying from overseas depending on location. The routine processing time to renew at consulates in Mexico is currently 3-4 weeks.
  7. Happy to give local artist and community champion Efrén González a plug here, even though his event has nothing to do with the French national holiday "le 14 juillet" (a.k.a. Bastille Day).
  8. There's a seamstress located behind the Chapala Plaza mercardo. A few store fronts down from the tortilla place. Bang on the big green door. (P.S. This is not the Oh Shirt embroidery shop.)
  9. According to the program's guidelines, it appears that vehicles not registered in Jalisco ARE included in the regulation. https://bit.ly/3xAJ1sE
  10. Also, on the LCS web site you may have to access the small scroll bar on the side of the event description to reveal the advance ticket purchase option which appears lower down. `
  11. And what, pray tell, the heck is this?
  12. I was surprised to see this statement in a news report recently: The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission in December said companies can legally mandate that all employees re-entering the workplace and new hires be vaccinated for Covid-19. The only exceptions allowed are for disabilities and religious reasons.
  13. Perhaps this is a silly question but . . . What is it that Lake Medical Group/Lakeside Medical Group does? They do not provide medical care and they do not issue health insurance.
  14. You can take the overnight bus from Guadalajara to Nuevo Laredo, Tamaulipas and walk across the bridge to Laredo, Texas That would be much cheaper than flying.
  15. Did anyone here attend the Grand Opening last week? If so, did you learn anything of interest to this discussion?
