  1. The reported numbers in Mexico can't be believed. Here is an article on the opinion of the UNAM university. https://mexiconewsdaily.com/news/coronavirus/official-count-is-2-million-coronavirus-cases-but-university-says-its-at-least-17-million/
  2. I read that there will be rolling blackouts in several states between 6 and 11pm, and that the power is for those States in Northern Mexico who have experienced the bad weather and snow.
  3. Costco won't let you in if you are over 60, so I bet Sam's won't either.
  4. If you think you can do better than him (and I bet you didn't even talk to him) especially in our area, then you are living in a dream world. Good luck with that. https://www.chapala.com/elojo/163-articles-2014/april-2014/2475-miguel-mora-a-muralist-for-the-ages
  5. He painted a large painting for us when we moved here in 2006, and it was at that time he told us of his work for the museums. I have not had restoration done.
  6. Maestro Miguel Mora lives in Chapala and has done many restorations of art for the museums in Mexico City. He has many years of experience and if anyone local could help you I bet it would be him. He is the artist who recently supervised the touchup of the big mural on the carretara near Chapala and also painted the art inside the dome at the end of the Chapala malecon.
  7. Bancomer doesn't charge me anything. When I sent the money the other day the $15 fee applied if I was sending 5K, but they waived it with 10K.
  8. I use a service online called OFX. They charge $15 and take the money from my TD Canada Trust account and drop it into my Bancomer account. I just transferred $10K and they waived the service fee. As with all foreign exchange the rate they give you changes constantly. It was a bit of paperwork to get it set up but now it is super easy every time I use it. I used to write a cheque to Bancomer from the Canadian account but they give a poor exchange rate and you have to sit and wait to see someone and wait while they call Mexico City for a rate, etc. Then I couldn't get access to the money f
  9. A young lady I know who works at a medical clinic in Jocotepec told me that they see about 15 covid patients a day, with about half being first visit new patients and the rest being previous visit patients. I think that's a lot.
  10. The free insurance I saw advertised by Air Canada was very limited to certain dates.
  11. This has been the worst couple of weeks for bobos in our opinion, in 14 years here. More so about a week ago. They were in unbelievable quantities at our house.
  12. Why are the local residents supposed to be looking for a new location? Is it not the responsibility of the municipality to find a suitable location? Are the local residents and neighbors supposed to find and buy land for this shelter? That will never happen. The municipality needs to be responsible for and correct the mistake they made by placing this shelter in a high density housing area.
  13. Is that the Royal "we"? Or are you offering your help to work to get them all adopted?
  14. My experience with her was not good. It was years ago and she didn't strike me as being on the ball. One example is that she had me go to Guad for a special thyroid test and she wanted the results sent to her office in the city. We had an appointment to discuss the results here in town and when she showed up for it she hadn't brought them so couldn't discuss them. A waste of time. Then I went to another Endocrinologist about my thyroid and after talking with me she wanted me to go for a mammogram and then come back. What would that have to do with my thyroid? I went to a third one and he jus
  15. This post is two years old. It would be better to start your own new post.
  16. I don't understand what you mean. They won't have what support programs to assist them? An emergency will put them in what kind of distress?
  17. More about these two doctors and their "statistics". https://www.mercurynews.com/2020/04/28/cue-the-debunking-two-bakersfield-doctors-go-viral-with-dubious-covid-test-conclusions/
  18. You should give her full pay! Her bills didn't just drop by 60%, did they?
  19. There has been a Caremongering group for this area set up on Facebook but it is geared towards helping foreigners who need help, I think. Language is the issue that would keep the Mexican community from reading it and taking part. https://www.facebook.com/groups/3660232657383288/ Operation Feed in San Juan Cosala is asking for help to feed extra families who have lost their employment. https://www.facebook.com/OperationFeedsjc/
  20. Not in the Laguna Mall. He is located in Interlago Plaza. I would recommend him too.
  21. The workers are not allowed to enter homes, so don't worry about it. They will conduct the survey at your door.
