  1. Thank you all for being so kind as to give me your opinions you have all been a great help.
  2. I agree with you and you get what you pay for most of the time. My wife is from Mexico City. She has a fantastic dentist there but he is in Mexico City. His prices are very high for Mexico but he does great work the first time. If there is a problem he takes responsibility. I do not mind paying more for a skilled practitioner. In the long run just like your health it is alot more expensive to be sick (or have poor dental health) than it is to be healthy.
  3. We just moved Lakeside and my wife is having problems with an old root canal. Can anyone recommend a great dentist who really knows what they are doing. I know it is subjective but would love some suggestions. Thanks so much
  4. Will check them out thanks for the advice.
  5. I use Bank of America also. I used to hate them years ago when I lived in California. All my income originates in the United States. I have found them to be very simple to use and I receive everything by direct deposit into that account. If I have to do any wire transfers or direct deposits or any other US payments I need to make. It is seamless on their banking app. There is great customer service right on the app also. I do believe their app is the best one I have ever used. I am NOT tech savvy at all. We also have an account with C I Banco. Every month or as needed I just drop off a B of
  6. I live in Puerto Vallarta now, will be moving to Chapala very soon. I sold real estate and worked in a Mexican Real Estate company. It is called Domus. Maybe you have heard of it. We had far more wealthy Mexican clients than the other large Vallarta agencies. When I left last year Domus and Timothy were the two largest agencies. The reason we had more Mexican clients was that all the agents except for myself and one other Canadian were Mexican. All our company correspondence and our meetings were in Spanish. I think it is true that the vast majority of Mexican families send their kids to Canad
  7. I am not sure what you are trying to say her. I think you are saying that there is a lack of respect for the teaching profession in the United States which is without a doubt 100% accurate and very sad. But to extrapolate that out to say that teachers leave America to teach overseas is not accurate at all. Although teachers receive lower pay for the most part than they deserve they still earn a far higher salary than those who teach English overseas. They also are paid for the entire year (although some places teachers have the option of being paid over 10 or 12 months.) They also for the most
  8. Personally I believe that this whole conversation is ridiculous to say the least. There are unique accents, spellings, colloquialisms, pronunciations wherever you go in any language. So ragging on how one country pronounces a letter compared to another should be fun and interesting, nothing more or less. I have walked the Camino de Santiago many times which brings people from all over the world to walk in peace and friendship for hundreds and hundreds of kilometers. I once walked with a dear friend from Australia. We entertained our friends many times arguing about WhatsApp messages regarding
  9. Things are out of control in Texas that is for sure. Part of the reason Washington's numbers were much lower is Texas' population is over 4 times greater than Washington. Washington also instituted much stricter shutdown guidelines than Texas did. They instituted them very early as Washington was one of the first hotspots and did a much better and more cohesive job than Texas ever did. I for one do not believe the numbers in Mexico even remotely reflect the true number of cases. Of the 30 most highly impacted countries worldwide Mexico is ranged 26th in the number of tests administered, 7
  10. With all due respect and I am not attacking you but this statement you have made really has no medical basis in research right now "“For many diseases, it can take years before we fully characterize the different ways that it affects people,” said nephrologist Dan Negoianu of Penn Medicine. “Even now, we are still very early in the process of understanding this disease.” This is something that must be a major consideration at the present time and for the future. Here is a study from JAMA about cardiovascular issues related to COVID-19 https://jamanetwork.com/journals/jamaca
  11. Hi, Sorry I have not gotten back to you. We have had a death in the family. Let us definitely stay in touch. I will be contacting you soon. Thanks
  12. Hi and thanks for that information. When we lived in DF we went to 10MB with Telmex and even after our nephew (who is a computer whiz and heads a department at a corporation for cyber security) worked on it he said the best we could expect was about 6 or 7. Granted this was 5 years ago. It doesn't look like it has improved that much. We will be moving at the end of July with a September 1 move in date so we will immediately go to the offices of Telmex and iLox and see where we stand with things. Hope one day we can meet. I am sure my wife would love to meet a fellow Chilanga!
  13. Just sent you an private message. Hope to hear from you soon.
  14. Thanks for the tip. If I have to I will switch. When it comes to cell phone companies I have about as much loyalty to them as they have to me. So that is none.
