  1. no they were not open today. But it is very easy to get what you need by texting to their whats app number if you speak spanish or use your google translate, and they respond promptly. I actually find it easier than going into the office. Let me know if i can help you.
  2. hi, well i dont know if that number is the direct line in Ajijic, but the sign on the door there said it is a number to deal with whatever you need. No there is no office in chapala that I know of. I meant we have a place in chapala that we needed wifi also along with our house in another location. good luck.
  3. here is their whats app or regular line 331 520 9621. I just set up another service in chapala. If you text in spanish they get right back to you. If you cant speak spanish, you can google translate and type in the text. Hope this helps
  4. we just returned from the border. No problems at all. Easy drive to Matahuala. Leave here at sunup, arrive Matahuala about 2:00, leave the next morning at sunup arrive border about 1:00. But we never go Loredo anymore. So many lines. We go Del Rio, or McAllen or piadras Negras. Just a thought.
  5. We have a very good Mexican lady friend who is looking for work. She likes cleaning, could do "cargiver" work, cooking or maybe something else you might need. Totally reliable and honest and hard working. Call me if interested or PM me. 332 055 6255. Thank you
  6. Yes, he is our very dear friend. That is his correct number. I just called him and he said he has not received any miscalls so he is so sorry. He doesnt know why the call didnt go through. But here is his wife, April's number also.331 518 6851 I think she is with him at this moment.
  7. absolutely, go to Jeff Berwick's Dollar Vigilante report today "I Cant Breathe" ______
  8. wow, great, can you tell me where they are located??? need furniture
  9. yes, i would never ever do that and never recommend anyone doing it. Just thought it kind of 'funny" what they do.....really not funny...just could not think of another word
  10. I am sure you are not going to do this but all of our mexican friends say in mexico if people park in places not respecting others they puncture their tires. The cost of repair is not worth parking there anymore........I would not do it and I'm sure you will not do it. Just thought I'd tell you what alot of them do, so we are told. They say No Parking signs are too expensive for them and puncturing the tire is the "mexican way".....lol
  11. Im encouraged that you know we had a Republic in the beginning. Was it Benjamin Franklin that said "if we can keep it !!" A Democracy always crumbles into Socialism and then when Socialism emplodes because the haves are tired of supporting the have nots, a Despot comes riding in on a white horse to save the day and they become Dictatorships. Our founding fathers knew this. In a Democracy when the majority rule they can pass a law that the majority feel it is best to kill everyone over 70, and guess what? That is the law. Also in a democracy, New York and California will make all the decisions, the rural people have no say. That was the brilliance of our founding fathers who instituted an Electoral College to have equal representation. Our history books have been rewritten so that the younger generation and even some of us older people dont have a clue to the beauty of a Republic.
  12. Hello Mainecoons: you wrote this in 2018 Very reliable expat who just likes to get out and drive so he makes runs with and for people to the U.S. and Canada. you wrote this to help someone. I was just wondering if you still know how to contact this person and if they are still doing it? I have a friend with 3 small dogs who lived here and wants to return. Thank you so very much for any help you can give. Barbara boswelltb@yahoo.com
  13. yes we passed by too and saw the body. Brought tears to our eyes.......
  14. I have googled electric cars. China now sells a little 4 seat electric car for about $4000 US in mexico City. They might deliver. Im looking into it. There are alot that are like a motorcycle with 3 wheels but i prefer a regular 4 wheel and steering wheel
  15. Yes there are alot growing wild. Our mexican friends have 2 in their back yard and we just saw another one on a property in west ajijic. Mexican said there are many here.
  16. Zeb, also pretty standard for mexican rentals there is no frig or furniture. But we know where you can get a good used frig.
  17. So sorry Zeb. I have been out. Just saw your post. I PM'ed you the directions and how to get a hold of someone who could show you.
  18. so sorry, I just now saw your post. Yes those are the rents. We mostly have mexican friends. They pay much different rents than the expats. Of course they do not know how we pay the kind of rent we pay. Just two different worlds. Our good friends pay $1700 a month pesos, have a two bdrm, large. Not much curb appeal but that is pretty normal.
  19. You are so very welcome Sue, but people like you and Dr. Hector have the HARD work and we all thank you.
  20. I am so very sorry, that is not like him, I will ask him what happened.
  21. As far as tolls. In our Honda Fit we always allowed $60 US , then got a truck, allowed $100. I personally would have $200 for a motor home. But I could be wrong. We have a 40 foot 5th wheel in the states. We have thought of bringing down from time to time but with these roads it would be disastrous to make a wrong turn so you really need to know where you are going. Weve lived here 7 years and for 4 of them went back and forth every 4 months to care for parents and with all that experience still made wrong turns. Have you ever been to this area? This is not to discourage you as Ive seen really big motor homes here, but it might be worth your while to drive down in a car, stay in a rental and look the place over first. Or find someone who has actually driven here with one. But good luck and enjoy when you are here.
  22. So nice of you to say so.......I told Ernesto.....it will make his day !!
