  1. Last week I was misinformed by a bilingual Mexican that they were giving the 2nd shots that day and he advised me to get down there, so I went. What I found was only 2 Servidores working outside the little purple bldg. on the malecon, and all they were doing is getting people's paperwork in order so it doesn't have to be done on the day of shots, greatly extending the time spent that day. So, my paperwork is in order, I have the proof of my 1st shot. They said they don't know the specific location that will be used for Ajijic because they had logistical problems with that site because of pe
  2. Here is my 2 pesos worth: Last Friday a Mexican friend said to go down to the Ajijic malecon to get your 2nd shot. Error! I went down there but they were only giving out the "comprabante" showing that you had the 1st shot. They were set up near but not in the "purple house" which is just a little building. The guy told me that they did not yet have a firm plan for WHERE the 2nd shots would be given because the Ajijic location had too many entry points, causing confusion. He said people would be calling us for citas, but he mentioned that so many foreigners have phones with message machi
  3. Many of us have been a little wary of the Chinese Sinovac which we are getting here in the Chapala area. I had my jab last Thursday (in a record? 4.5 hours!), ate a sandwich there and later that night came down with the runs. So the next day I went to Dr. Rodriguez at The Clinic and he told me he thought Sinovac was actually the best choice, if you are looking ahead at the variants coming our way. Always best to look ahead in iffy situations. He said Sinovac would be more effective with the 3 new variants because the Chinese have the original "mother/father" covid cel in their vaccine and
  4. This must be the new epidemic, my neighbors and I have those "hormigas corteros" as well, ugh. We are using 2 remedies from the hardware store, one white powder - I don't think it is boric acid which I use for roaches - and some brown pellets. Hopefully they will work. If you want a real shock, google "cutter ants." Their mounds can stretch for miles!
  5. Who do you call? I need that info now that I have a car and a garage door, people park IFO it, before, never.
  6. I wish to question this Mexican thing of "showing up early" so you don't have to wait. Hah!!! If everyone shows up early (like at Telmex or IMSS back in the old days) then everyone still has to wait a long time. It has always worked better for me to show up late and just walk in. But this case may be very different. I didn't even find out about today's vaxx scheduling until I left the house almost 5:00 and walked around the corner and saw an Amiga Mexicana who told me about it, so I ran home and got my papers and went down there and stood in line - on a perfectly gorgeous day by the
  7. I just had 3 of these tonight. They have been happening roughly every week for many weeks, lost count. The juice comes right back on, but still, you never know. Anyone know what is happening with this? We are not even having bad weather.
  8. I tried to reply to the pertinent thread but once I wrote out my post, I could not access the "submit" button. Am I banned or what? So I am trying again. Replying to Mainecoons about the frozen windmills: This is no time to be even subtly bashing Clean Energy. The reason that the windmills froze over in Texas is that they were not winterized as they are in normally cold climates. With global warming changes, people have to become more adaptable to recurrent extreme and unprecedented weather conditions which are not going to go away before they wreak havoc. https://www.texastrib
  9. Please note: This was posted LAST Tuesday; they did not give the exact DATE of this blackouts - this week or next? I did not experience a blackout here. Sorry for any confusion.

  13. That comes from my medical insurance guy as well. He says private as well as state hospitals are filled up. This is not a good time to come here if you are thinking about it. Just stay home! I'm not traveling anywhere until CV is over with. Might be a long while. I wouldn't want to get on a plane and find some wacko anti-masker there making trouble.
  14. There is a Photo shop on Ocampo somewhere across the street from Manix. They specialize in passport fotos. Sorry I can't be any more specific. You'll find it if you walk around a bit.
  15. I've lived in my current house here for 8.5 years and the house is about 10 years old. The water system is Puro Mexicano, and I still don't understand how it all works. The water is very hard and leaves deposits on your sinks and faucets, etc and are hard to clean. Extra sprayed vinegar helps. i use a solution of cider vinegar and bottle water to rinse my hair and face, comes out much better. The water guys drive by every so often to deliver, you just have to run out when they are there - and get to know them and their routines. The carry the water into my house and put it in the "tipado
