  1. We're moving stuff from Seattle to Ajijic. Some of it is ours; we're permanentes. Other stuff is our daughter's; she's moving down here but doesn't yet have either a temporal or a permanente. We'd like to ship a pod from Seattle to Laredo, and maybe find someone from Ajijic to take a truck up to Laredo, load our stuff from the pod terminal, and navigate the customs process to cross the border and bring the stuff down here. The "stuff" is about the equivalent of a one- or two-bedroom apartment. Anyone have experience with this process? Suggestions whom to hire to do this for us (if in fact it's even doable)? I'll talk to Lake Chapala Moving tomorrow, but I've heard you can wait weeks or even months for them to have space available on a truck from Laredo. Plus, I'm wondering if it can be done safely for cheaper than Lake Chapala Moving would charge.
  2. Thanks, Bisbee Gal! That's really helpful. I signed up for Amazon.com.mx (somehow, after more than a year here we hadn't figured out that amazon.com.mx is a whole different thing that requires a different account from your amazon.com account. And then - voila! - I bought a pack of strings with 1-day delivery... until ... the next day happened (that would be today) and I got a note saying my shipment would be delayed til Feb. 6. Feb. 6! 2 ½ more weeks without a guitar! Anyway, thanks for the tip on amazon.com.mx. We'll use it a lot, I'm sure.
  3. Anyone know where to buy or order steel acoustic guitar strings in Ajijic/Chapala? Help! My high E string broke and I'm guitar-less til i can replace it! I searched online for Guad music stores, and the ones i found hardly carry anything in the way of strings, let alone acoustic steel. Amazon wants to charge $30 for shipping one set of strings to Mexico. Not sure about the music store in San Antonio, but at this writing (Sat. morn), it doesn't look like it'll be open til Tuesday. Anyone? I'm having withdrawal symptoms. Shaking so hard it's difficult to type ...
  4. We're in El Parque in San Antonio (just off the Carretera near Cafe Negro), and we don't have a car. We're happy to take the bus to West Ajijic, but it's a long walk up the hill to the Racquet Club. Anyone going to the fundraiser from Chapala, Riberas or San Antonio and have two seats available in their car? We're nice people!

  6. We're crossing the border from Nogales AZ to Nogales MX this coming Sunday morning. We have our car registration with us, but not our title. We're getting wildly different answers: some say registration is all you need at the border crossing; others say, No, you have to have the title to the car. Others say Don't have the car title original with you, because if a border guard takes it from you, it's proof of ownership and anyone possessing it becomes the owner of the car. Help! We'd like to know from people who've done this crossing -- do we need the title, or not?
  7. We're Seattle Seahawks fans. Anyone know of a place to watch their games?
  8. Thank you, Johanson! I checked out a Telcel 4G coverage map, and it shows Ajijic, but not El Parque. As I mentioned, one option might be to rent an office in Ajijic for the roughly 6-10 hours per week I'd need the service (spread out over different time slots), in case anyone has an idea about that ...
  9. Hi, Whoever! I need Internet high-speed enough to handle videoconferencing reliably. My wife and I have just purchased a home in El Parque, in San Antonio, and as of September we'll be there close to full time. Our current TelMex Internet service apparently can't give us what we need in El Parque. If I can't get it there, I might need to find an office to rent for a few hours per week (I'm running a leadership course by videoconference). I understand that 4G cell service can give me the Internet speed that I need, but I don't know if any Mexican cell phone providers offer it for our area. Anyone have any ideas for us? I would be grateful!
