  1. Yes to Jorge, the best. Don't know about your situation but call him and ask.
  2. Ilox is running cable up into Upper Chula Vista. They're at the first turn going up the hill (Paso del Golf). Said they'll make the right turn and continue up tomorrow.
  3. The pool in Riberas has open swim as well as all the other activities.
  4. Not sure what this means but this is what I got on: Speedtest: download 1.20Mbps, Ping 71, Upload 0.19 Fast.com: Internet speed is 880Kbps Whatever this means, it's slow. Hope that helps!
  5. Electrical hasn't been a big problem here. Been here two and a half years and have had electricity go out maybe 2-3 times a year, usually for just a minute. Longest unplanned outage was about 20 minutes during a bad storm. CFE has twice cut the electrical for long periods (up to 11 hours) and we missed being notified but that's not storm related. I'll check the internet speeds in a bit.
  6. Hi JJ, We're renting in upper CV on the golf course. Internet is okay, not great. We go down occasionally but usually not for long periods (few minutes to an hour). Our house is about 50 years old and so is the wiring - maybe that's part of the problem. We're waiting on ilox to arrive. We keep getting told 2 months, 2 months, 2 months. Eventually we'll get it but not today. Don't know how to check what speeds I have but I also have an old computer so my speeds might be hindered by that as well as the old wiring. Other than that love the neighborhood! Rich
  7. Need to find: Levalbuterol HCI or Albuterol Sulfate Inhalation Solution for a nebulizer machine. Neither WalMart or Pharmacia Guadalajara carry it. This is not the small metered dose inhalers but the liquid for the machine. Anyone know where I can get this Lakeside?
  8. A few months ago i took a bag of batteries in to Steren and they told me they were full and weren't taking any more. Has this changed? I still have the bag.
  9. Right next door to Puritan Poultry.
  10. Emmanuel Castaneda: (33) 2203 0695 Our tenant, Emmanuel Castaneda, is a licensed psychologist. He graduated two years ago from the University in Cuernavaca and did his clinical training there before moving Lakeside. He is Mexican and is fluent in English. While he doesn't have many years in practice, he also doesn't charge those rates. Interview them all and find one that fits!
  11. Check out the Insight Academy in Ajijic. Small school doing creative teaching.
  12. I'm also in upper CV. We rent and love the location (2 years). Have had several interactions with the fracc office and they've always been helpful and responsive. Internet isn't perfect and I'm not too fond of the cobblestones but don't want to live anywhere else!
  13. Thanks all. My NOB bank emailed me a form which I've returned. Hopefully will be completed soon.
  14. I went to the HSBC ATM Saturday (across from Wal-Mart) and discovered it was out of money. I canceled my transaction and left with no receipt and no money. Today I see that my US bank has been charged for the withdrawal that didn't happen ($5,000MX)! Anyone have experience on how to deal with this? I'm going in to HSBC tomorrow with a translator. I thought I had seen a thread on this but haven't been able to locate it. Thanks in advance!
