  1. It's a mixed bag, since there are Tapatio's who are buying up homes after being stuck in the city due to covid. But there are also some interesting properties used for either Airbnb or Hotels that are for sale now at very reasonable prices. Maybe that could be a great family house to own, or maybe no one will want to purchase and run a hotel knowing how quickly things can change.  

  2. Dr. Haro's office did a great job. Not him for the extraction, a specialist from Guad. Extraction was very quick, painless. Going months with a fake tooth is annoying no matter who you go with of course. They took two very small lower front teeth out and we decided to put one pin back in, with two teeth on that one pin. There is a dark shading creating a 'line' between those two teeth. Color matched well, and I've had not problems, almost two years.

  3. We're in lower Las Salvias and have not had water in 6 days- and we're on that lower tank on Tempisque. Upper Las Salvias had an issue starting about 7-10 days ago and a number of folks had to order trucks of water. The other night the power kept going on and off, for many hours, so maybe that wrecked the pump. Hopefully someone at Simapa knows about this?

    I would love to learn if Telmex has upgraded the general area of upper Las Salvias in Ajijic.

    I am paying $435 pesos per month and am getting 12.4 down by 0.58 up which is about as good as I have ever gotten. Maybe if I pay $599 per month I can get the 50 megabit down package. I guess it's time to visit Telmex and ask and hopefully sign up

    Oh, I almost forgot to post that when I entered my modem, just now, I got these settings

    which aint bad.

    It has improved quite a bit for us in lower Las Salvias. Telmex right now via wifi is 30 down and 10 up- we pay 389 pesos and have usually had 8 down and under 1 up. We also have Ilox and are keeping both since I work online. Telmex went out the other day for all day, and Ilox has gone out twice since we had it installed- so at least we can jump off of one service and use another. 

  5. For me and my husband, we have to get our U.S. marriage certificate and our birth certificates apostilled. So that's going to take a while before we can sign up. Looking for online options. The LCS woman was very helpful, but admitted that their printed list of requirements from last year was not updated to say "apostilled". I had certified copies with me, but that's not enough. I guess that requirement is new.
