  1. Mexican, of course, both postal and bank.
  2. It must not be hard to cash a US check as I have had three government checks cashed, one from Florida and two from Texas, and I never even received them. It is obvious that the local mail people are thieves and forgers. Now I have to do three fraud affidavits and hope the local bank(s) that cashed them get to eat it.
  3. Why not start with Amazon Mexico's offering? For instance: https://www.amazon.com.mx/Horseradish-Roots-org%C3%A1nica-desnuda-plantar/dp/B06X9VD1G2/ref=sr_1_2?__mk_es_MX=%C3%85M%C3%85%C5%BD%C3%95%C3%91&keywords=horseradish&qid=1580236589&sr=8-2
  4. Today, Friday, Chapala at 1 PM. In five minutes I paid and got the card and sticker.

    Sorry but I find no way to quote from here to there.

    How is MSG made? MSG is made up mostly of free glutamic acid, or glutamate, an amino acid found naturally in most foods. It’s produced by fermenting molasses, starch, or sugar cane.

    What foods contain monosodium glutamate (msg)? Monosodium Glutamate 101: What Foods Naturally Contain MSG? Glutamate is an amino acid that is found in virtually every food. It’s a big part of protein-rich foods like meat, eggs and cheese, but is also found in fruits and vegetables. And, it is what’s responsible for giving foods the umami (savory) flavor that makes them taste delicious.

    I didn't notice too many fat Chinese while in China this year.

    The people that like the pho at Chopsticks I'm told. LOL BTW, "The United States Food and Drug Administration has designated the umami enhancer monosodium glutamate (MSG) as a safe ingredient. While some people identify themselves as sensitive to MSG, a study commissioned by the FDA was only able to identify transient, mild symptoms in a few of the subjects, and only when the MSG was consumed in unrealistically large quantities." https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Umami

    What spice would you use to add umami?
  11. I was speaking for myself. My collection of four Martins include a Madagascar rosewood custom D-28, so what?
  12. I read differently than you it seems and would surely get competent advice beyond this forum before I would risk the instrument.
  13. Read it again. It says: "The restrictions on Brazilian rosewood, whose endangered species status and restrictions predate those on other kinds of rosewood, remain in place." Source: https://reverb.com/news/cites-restrictions-on-musical-instruments-could-be-coming-to-an-end
  14. My concern would not be what Mexico thinks on import. Mine would be getting it back into the US without the requisite documentation. Yes, they can tell the difference.
  15. Spend a little time on the Chapala Crime groups of Facebook and the answer will be clear.
  16. "National Action Party governor declared" It's just opposition to progress by the right.
  17. My experience with a Seguro Popular hospital in Guad was that it had to be in color. All the document vendors across the street did them in color and every patient wishing to simply make an appointment had to produce one.
