  1. Yes, you are correct. I was looking at the May 2020 school calender by mistake, sorry.
  2. I'm not sure what you said is true. The Labor Day holiday was moved to Friday for teachers and students in 2019 . . . Calendario escolar 2019-2020 puente = fin de semana extendido 3 de mayo - viernes - puente - Día del trabajo
  3. Teachers and educational staff in Chapala on April 28th received the single-dose CanSino vaccine, not the dual-dose vaccine from Sinovac Biotech. Therefore, it is incorrect to say that people who received an initial Sinovac shot were denied their second inoculation due to "teachers' priority".
  4. The purpose of "puente" is to move a holiday so it becomes part of the week-end period. Since May 1st falls on a weekend there is no occasion for shifting the "Día del Trabajo" celebration this year.
  5. If you go to the Lake Cam at www.ajijicweather.com there's a time lapse video movie that runs from 12:30 a.m. Thursday to 11:30 p.m. Thursday showing the progress of the smoke and fire. Very interesting to watch.

  7. Galeana is not a street but rather the name of the walkway that runs through the plaza area in Chapala.
  8. Reminder -- Vallarta’s queen of song, Kim Kuzma, along with her band Acustico, performs two concerts in the Lake Chapala Society (LCS) garden, Sunday, March 28, at 2 and 4:30 p.m. Concert tickets can only be purchased at the LCS office Monday - Saturday 10:00 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. VIP tickets are 500 pesos and general seats are 350 pesos.

  9. According to covid19.trackvaccines.org, five different vaccines have been approved for use in Mexico. Source: https://covid19.trackvaccines.org/country/mexico/
  10. Gorditas in Mexico are "little fat ones". Looks like arepas in Venezuela are grandes gordas ("big fat ones")!
  11. Tomgates -- Google is a wonderful resource but knowledgeable people, rather than computer systems, often provide superior information. In the posting you provided above, I didn't find any references about record keeping and disclosure requirements imposed upon USA citizens that help manage charitable funds held in foreign nonprofit bank accounts.
  12. When I first moved to the border years ago, a co-worker introduced me to gorditas ("little fat ones") and they are still my favorite Mexican dish today.
  13. Perhaps like in the story "The Little Mermaid", this 'Mermaidgirl' found a prince, became human, and is beholding her new legs and feet.
  14. Found this graphic -- not sure if the number is right . . .
  15. traderspoc and Bisbee Gal -- Thank you for providing this important information. Can you perhaps comment as well about reporting requirements related to U.S. citizens who might be, say, the treasurer of a Mexico nonprofit or who collect and disperse funds from a bank account owned by a Mexican charity? There are so many ex-pats here who devote time to charitable causes. Thanks again.
