  1. Good news! Announced today ... Mexican vaccination certificates will be accepted in the UK as of February 11.
  2. Unfortunately the official certificate with the QR code does not, except as embedded in the CURP, which apparently does not meet the WHO specs.
  3. Yes I'm aware of that, but apparently the WHO requires birthdate to be "explicitly shown" BTW I've not checked other countries, but I suspect we may have the same problem elsewhere
  4. In planning a trip to the UK this spring, I checked out entry requirements relative to Covid vaccination. I'm fully vaccinated and have the Mexican government vaccination certificate. The UK Government website lists the countries from which vaccination certificates are accepted. Mexico is not on the list. More research uncovers the following from the British Embassy Facebook page: "British Embassy, Mexico City: The UK requirements for vaccination certificates are based on World Health Organization guidelines (https://www.who.int/.../WHO-2019-nCoV-Digital. ..). These requirements include a Date of birth that appears explicitly on the certificate, to allow information about the vaccination event to be linked to a specific person. More details can be found at gov.uk (https: //www.gov.uk /.../ countries-with-approved-covid-19 ...). Currently, Mexican vaccination certificates do not have this information, so they cannot be considered valid proof of vaccination. Faced with this situation, we are in talks with the Mexican authorities" Has anyone else tried to travel to the UK with a Mexican vaccination certificate?

  6. .... but only to people who have WhatsApp one their phones
  7. The best way involves removing the hard drive from your PC, then using an external case or harness to connect it to your Chromebook via USB. Difficulty really depends on the type of hard drive in your PC.
  8. On Ocampo, next to the printer ink store. Can't remember the name but it's ½ block east of Manix restaurant, opposite side of the street.
  9. I would be very wary of buying "Cuban" cigars locally. I bought some Cohiba Siglio 6 in Havana (from the official source). Wonderful smoke. Just to compare, I bought one of the same locally. Not the same shape or color. Not a bad smoke, but obviously fake.
  10. I recommend this remote: Updated SofaBaton U1 Universal Remote with OLED Display and Smartphone APP, All in One Universal Remote Control for up to 15 Entertainment Devices, Compatible with Smart TVs/DVD/STB/Projector so on https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07XG1HT7G/ref=cm_sw_r_apan_glt_fabc_XSH5QG9GY33AJRNYZBGQ?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1 You can enter your TV model number, and it will program itself from their online database. Uses a smartphone app.
  11. I always use Chapala Tree Service. Last week they trimmed my three huge palms, removed fruit bunches and dry material, and treated them for bugs. Total cost 2,400 pesos. The bug treatment is very important if you want to keep the trees alive. I also feel better when I know they are insured. It's a dangerous job.
  12. The arroyos are a Federal responsibility. They are cleaning ours as we speak.
  13. We're still stuck in Las Palmas. This is our access road this morning.
  14. Try sending a WhatsApp message to 333-171-7143. At least you will be able to tell when he has read it .
  15. The carretera is gone. https://photos.app.goo.gl/1WeJdPQNHur83QkJ8

  17. Several cars washed down the street and piled up at the end
  18. We are trapped in Las Palmas. Access road looks like the Raquet Club did 12 years ago. Big rocks, mud and trees came down from the mountain.
  19. Hyundai 3500W generator for sale. Almost new, maybe 10 hours run time. See: https://articulo.mercadolibre.com.mx/MLM-604475561-generador-inverter-hyundai-portatil-gasolina-3500w-hye4000ia-_JM $12,000 pesos. Cel/Whatsapp 331 453 6800
