  1. We have walked numerous times a day from our hotel in upper Ajijic down the hill, during the day, at night, numerous routes and I can smell this lovely flower or vine or shrub almost everywhere but I do not know what it is. You could be walking next to a pile of garbage and smell it. I've sniffed the vines, shrubs, trees every chance I get trying to find it but it's not coming from them. I'm guessing it is coming from the residential yards. This smell is everywhere so it must be pretty common. Those of you that know what I'm talking about, any idea what plant this is because I want one?
  2. Thank-you for the info, everything I tried didn't work either and I thought I was just doing something wrong.
  3. I do have shaw direct tv app and the tsn go app but when open the tsn go app and click on the live link the tsn go app keeps telling me I need to download the tsn go app from Google play. I had downloaded it from Samsung Galaxy store because the one from Google play says it wasn't compatible with my device. Then I got into some area that said Geo restrictions were in place.
  4. A couple Canadians addicted to curling who just escaped the cold want to know where we could possibly catch TSN curling while the 2020 Scotties Tournament of Hearts is on back home.
  5. I've been to coastal Mexico many times over the years and have always learned that Gracias means thank-you. Today I was emailing Luis Miramontes, in english, about scheduling some transportation with him. In the last of our emails I said Gracias Luis, thinking I was thanking him in his native tongue, spanish. He replied that Gracias means yes or not, or maybe. I've learnt that yes is si, and no is no. Not sure what to make of this. Is there another dialect of Spanish spoken inland that is going to make me question all I've learned about the language to date.
  6. Thank-you all for your responses. This information is helpful to understand why there are no evening cruises.
  7. My husband and I will be down this February for two weeks and are looking to take in a sunset cruise on the lake. I see lots of day trips to the numerous islands in small boats, but cannot find a sunset cruise. Does anybody know if there is even such a thing?
  8. Thank-you all very much for the useful information.
  9. Is it easy to rent a car while in Ajijic or do these sell out quickly and we should book before we get there in February? I'm asking because we aren't 100 sure we will rent a car. Our preference is to hire a private driver to tour us around the many villages since we won't know where the local shops are and real estate developments. Just having a hard time getting a hold of anybody down there so we may have to rent a car and do it ourselves.
  10. Can one visit the Lake Chapala Society in Ajijic to learn about the area without buying a membership? What hours does it operate?
  11. Excuse my lack of knowledge but what area code for this number?
  12. Thank-you ibarra, I thought that was the thread I got the number from, maybe the post with the email was after I'd read the thread or I just missed it. Chapalence, I need more than just airport transfers which is why I was explicitly asking for a way to contact Francisco by email.
  13. I have the number 333-157-8060 for Francisco but don't know if I can reach him via text. He is highly recommended as a private driver, which we need, but I tried texting him (calling from Canada is ridiculously expensive) and never received a reply. I'd love to correspond via email with him and if that's not possible, to at the very least correspond by text. I don't know this gentleman from Adam and thought possibly he received my text but doesn't read English. Does anybody know if he has an email he can be reached at?
  14. Thank-you very much to everybody that took the time to reply to my question.
