  1. Also highly recommend …. Hyaluronic acid injections in the right knee administered by Dr. Gonzalez the orthopedic surgeon at the San Antonio hospital. A series of three injections over a three-week period usually last me between eight and 12 months. The total cost is approximately 5000 pesos . Game changer for me as I walk 4 or 5 miles every day and hike the mountains onthe weekend…… hoping it puts a knee replacement surgery off for at least a couple more years or more .
  2. Casa Linda…. Braised short ribs, duck confit, great fish dishes… Sunday breakfast, bloody Mary’s and much more . Ambience, service and professional management…. Rio Bravo …west Ajijic.
  3. Yes…5 or 6 tables comfortably spaced undercover .
  4. We had a wonderful Mexican dinner ( again ) last night at Teocintle Maiz…..( Ocampo east Ajijic ) we reserved a table upstairs on the rooftop Terrace…every table was full upstairs and in the main dining room . The menu is modern Mexican with a wide range of choices…..appetizers around 100 pesos and mains around 200 . The plate presentation was very professional… The food was served hot and spiced perfectly for us along with several tasty salsas and, the warm tortillas appeared to be home made . The service was spot on…friendly and attentive… not to mention pleasant live acoustic guitar in th
  5. Can anyone really forget Jeffrey… He was one of a kind… Personally I miss both Jeffrey and Cafe Magana .
  6. Within the last week or two, two friends of mine have both had interactions with local police , One was a minor fender bender the other one a minor traffic .offense. On both occasions the police threatened to tow the cars away needless to say both paid cash And the police left. My question is ... when and for what reasons are the police allowed to tow your car . Not sure that there are specific reasons other than cash of course however....
  7. Wonderful fresh mussels at Costa Alegre ( Fish market superlake plaza ) yesterday...200p per kilo .
  8. Flew into Orlando on Friday .... went to a FEMA walk up site on Sunday a.m. Choice of Johnson and Johnson or Pfizer vaccine . We took the Johnson and Johnson in and out in less than an hour including the health check. No side effects or soreness of the arm the next day....went kayaking. The FEMA site was amazing..... dozens of national guard assisting patients between tents no lines with at least 20 vaccination seats in each tent, and of course… No charge .
  9. It’s often called...willful blindness....seems to be almost or even more common than the virus itself these days .
  10. Despite rumors and Facebook content Purple garlic pizza is still open ....just picked up a close to perfect N Y style pizza yesterday . It was in fact quite busy with two motorcycles waiting on deliveries... 331 091 3385 .
  11. A friend of mine just received a western Union transfer for 1000 dollars ( US )...it seems to be above local ( Guad also ) western Union limits...it was a birthday gift so he hates to reverse the process and get two smaller ones ....any ideas ? ..thanks Ian
  12. Excellent....everything I would hope to find in a local or beach front casual seafood bistro/ cafe but seldom do .Service was good ,plenty of innovative menu choices, well priced and a decent wine pour ...
  13. Technician came Saturday realigned the satellite dish slightly… All channels back to normal .
  14. I believe the fish farm near Mezcala has changed to catfish ,as they get more money for “ bagre “ than they do for tilapia. Either way I would use them both if we didn’t have such a wonderful selection of fresh fish that I am familiar with at Costa Allegra fishmongers .
  15. At least two or three days a week I see a fisherman coming ashore with at least a wheel barrow full.. most Wednesdays at the Ajijic tianqui see it for sale still alive . So you have a choice China or the lake…Hobsons choice , My mother would have said .
  16. It will probably be similar to the English school vaccination system in the 50s… We all stood in a line and they used the same needle on all of us ... it Really speeds things up
  17. I Get my marrow bones in 2 to 3 kg batches from the butcher just off the Square in Ajijic . Incidentally it’s much better to roast the marrow bones with some rough chopped vegetables in the oven before simmering.
  18. Ours arrived in the form of a check last Friday...we signed it ,photographed it and deposited it via the internet in our Schwab account
  19. It’s called karma.....shame it’s only a mild dose...not unlike some others I’m not allowed to mention...they all have death on their hands ...they refused to take this virus seriously soon enough and then did nothing to prevent its spread.
  20. The U K announced this past week they have trained over 80,000 health care professionals to administer the vaccines... the US under a new president promises 100 million in a hundred days ...Mexico ...everyone over 65 by March / April...only time ,supply and logistics are in question...until if and when it’s all up to you.... ?
  21. A few days ago it cost us around 1000 pesos in gas and well over 500 pesos in tolls plus obviously the same on our return trip, not to mention the cost of a driver if necessary ...so good luck with the 600 ...
  22. Parking lot across the street ( private ) 15 pesos ...2 hours or less
  23. BOTH .......trendy cooking ingredient plus ancient remedy for just about anything.
  24. I believe black cumin is the same as nigella seeds which are easier to find , they have become very popular with bread bakers and are often sprinkled on salads .
  25. Mexi? .... Perhaps it may just help the local restaurants , artisans and retail stores etc .etc . as they have suffered so much this past year instead of thinking of your temporary traffic problems,,, in case you haven’t noticed the restaurants , villages streets , the plaza , malecon etc are pretty much deserted . ..it’s not just about you .
