  1. I also had a 'reliable' source tell me that there were many police in Chapala today because the governor of Jalisco was doing something at the park.
  2. I have noisy little birds getting crazy on my balconies. I fear they will build nests and lay eggs. How can I scare them away before it's too late? Do I seek out a couple of plastic owls? I don't want to hurt them. I prefer not to place something ugly out there. thanks for any advice!
  3. Does anyone know about Mario's taking orders for a carry-out holiday meal? A Mexican neighbor here in Chapala mentioned the option, but I was unable to get details. Thanks in advance for any info.
  4. In July 2012, I did a two year contract with iUsacell to get the free iPhone 3. I was pleased with my monthly rate and my service. In July 2014, I did a two year pre-pay with iUsacell. It was around $2500 pesos at that time (a great deal!). I have all the minutes, texting and data that I need. I love not going somewhere to pay a monthly bill. All in all, I have been satisfied with their service. The only negative (but not really a big deal for me), when I travel outside of Chapala/Guadalajara area and want to use the cell service, the roaming charges are outrageous. In those situations
  5. Can anyone fill in the blank for me? There is an Ajijic doctor with the first name Fernando. He is an older man, who speaks English. Two very honest Mexican acquaintances...who really don't know one another... have stated that he is referring his elderly Canadian patients to doctors in the city. Then he runs to 'accompany' them at the appointment (which is completely unnecessary). He then wants to charge his own fee on top of the referred doctor's fee. The elderly Canadian patients have had reliable, English speaking assistance, and did not request this doctor to accompany them. The ref
  6. We usually take the cuota. Once we took the free road...in the dark...during a rain storm...and yes...we should have had our heads examined for that bad judgement call. My husband is Mexican and in this 30's. He has driven all over Mexico day and night, and isn't easily intimidated. However, that evening, we pulled in to the first little inn and had a night cap to settle our nerves. All that said...I would consider it again. But I would not drive it in the rainy season, nor at night. He drove some friends to the ocean and took the free road back in March. He said he made the same time, b
  7. Does anyone have a referral to a good financial advisor - who is specifically licensed in both Mexico and the U.S.? I located one gentleman in Oregon, who also lives in San Miguel de Allende part of the year. He appeared to be fantastic, but then I found out the minimum portfolio value he will manage is 1 million USD. Okay... I'm 40 y.o. and have not come anywhere close to accumulating that kind of money. Thanks in advance for any thoughtful advice.

    Hi All, I would like to purchase quinoa for the first time. I have only seen it at SuperLake in little packs around $60 pesos (is that the going rate?). I haven't seen it at WalMart. Someone mentions the Grainery on here...is that the little spot next to Gossip Kitchen? I thought I could try a couple of recipes to see how I like it. Thanks for any advice. KBIOhio
  9. I saw a full size frig and a kitchen consul at the consignment shop on Morelos in Chapala this week (same street as the American Legion).
  10. Sasha in Chapala does a wonderful job! Her prices are not the cheapest, nor the most expensive - they are middle of the road. The prices are very fair when you consider that she uses high quality products (many salons in Mexico do not). Side note...someone mentioned an issue with climbing a flight of stairs...Sasha is more than willing to schedule an appointment in someone's own home.
  11. mermaid38, You asked about Thursday 7-9pm. That would work fine for me. Fridays are also good. I would love to expand my circle of friends in the area. I have a number of retired friends, but it would also be nice to know more people who work days and are willing to go out in the evenings. I'm 37 y.o. I have lived full time in Chapala for a year and a half. I work Mon-Fri during the day telecommuting for a U.S. company. KBIOhio
  12. Your post leads me to think that you may fit my demographic. I would love to start a social/support group of younger gringas in this area. If you truly fit the description, please write to me. I'm close to Soriana in Chapala. I'm from Ohio and work full-time online for an Ohio company.

    Look forward to hearing from you.


    I just need to expand my network, bu...

  13. How old is the mattress? Do you have a photo to share of the wood bed? Where are you located? Do you have any way to deliver in exchange for a small fee?



  14. Hi there. I drive by the old Chapala train station all the time, and I've never noticed a bazar in that area. Can you give me some very specific location info? I live near Soriana.
