  1. I have wondered if Mexicans think only their mouths need to be covered due to the name in Spanish. To me this is part of the education that those in authority should be giving, especially in places like Walmart, Soriana, Super Lake, Pancho's, pharmacies, etc. I have seen poets on various groups by people who have said they have turned around and walked out of some of these places because employees were either not covering their noses or even not wearing a mask at all.

  3. I believe if you imported and nationalized the car you will need the pedimento to sell it.

    Rhubarb

    You might try the farmers market tomorrow.
  5. Do contact Hector España. I messaged him through his Chapala Expat Liaison Facebook page about the same issue at Walmart. He went there and to Soriana and talked ti the managers about the issue. He wanted a report on Super Lake and Nueva Posada. Contact him about Super Lake. They need expat customers and if the word is they don't enforce masks, many will not patronize them and they may not know why.
  6. Have you considered what she will do for medical expenses here? Medicare won't cover her and most Medicare supplements limit the time out of country and only emergencies.
  7. I messaged the Gobierno d e Chapala through their Facebook page, asking if Riberas del Pilar had a delegado that represents it in the municipio. Here is the answer directly from the Gobierno del Municipio: Buenos días, Claro que si, El Delegado de San Antonio, Remiro Renteria.
  8. Here is exactly what my recibo de predial says: Ubicacion del Predio My house address Col. Fraccionamiento Riberas del Pilar Pob. San Antonio
  9. Walmart carries velcro in their hardware section.
  10. I didn't either (and I live in Riberas) until recently. I always thought of it as part of Chapala. But government-wise it is part of San Antonio. If you click on the link I included above you will see on the map that Riberas is included in San Antonio. Residents in Riberas pay water at SIMAPA in San Antonio, not Chapala. Mexican citizens go to San Antonio to vote, not Chapala. If there is a delegado for San Antonio he would represent Riberas also. Is there a San Antonio delegado to the municipio? I've never been aware of one. Riberas is kind of the poor step sister. However there is lots of building going on in Riberas as there is lots of empty land here so Riberas is booming.
  11. https://www.google.com.mx/maps/place/San+Antonio+Tlayacapan,+Jalisco/@20.2974516,-103.2346076,15z/data=!4m2!3m1!1s0x842f412da5a292bb:0x84efa865e3eb3e48?gl=mx
  12. At the end of a word or all alone the Y sounds like the I -- muy, y. Everywhere else it makes the same sound as the double l. Officially the name of the Y is now "ye." Also LL is no longer a separate letter. neither is the CH. The only letter in the Spanish alphabet that does not exist in the English alphabet is the ñ. K and W do not exist in any true Spanish words, only in foreign words. There are indigenous languages that use the K and/or W.
  13. Interesting article about the changes made by La Academia Real: https://www.nytimes.com/2010/11/26/world/europe/26spanish.html
  14. Riberas del Pilar is actually part of San Antonio Tlayacapán.
  15. La Academia Real, which is the official body that decides what is correct in Spanish, officially changed the name of the V to uve. So, technically, the name of the B is be (pronounced bay) and the name of the V is uve (pronounced oobay.) Of course people still say b de burro, v de vaca; or b grande, v chica; or b larga, v corta.
  16. No, there are two different words: ribera and rivera. Ribera is the correct word for here as it means shoreline or bank. Rivera is a brook or stream. They are pronounced the same thus the confusion in spelling. This is la Ribera de Chapala--the Shoreline of Chapala. The area between Chapala and San Antonio is Riberas del Pilar.

    Min Wah

    I like Min Wah's hot and sour soup.
  18. Is this the one that was between 7 Eleven and the Garden Center?
  19. Isn't the municipio of Chapala's rule no more than 10? I believe that would overrule the state's 50.
  20. And that is a good reason to wear the mask in the house too! 😉
  21. So the stay at home order for 60+ is encouraged but not absolute. Most of us are smart enough to do essential tasks (while wearing a face mask, of course) and then go home. As far as the gatherings if no more than 50, I don't even know that many people and isn't Chapala's regulation no more than 10?
  22. Fans? I'm guessing that is a faulty translation of ventilators as a fan in Spanish "ventilador.". Fans are easy to acquire, ventilators not so much.
