    ELECTRIC BILLING AND PAYMENT(CFE)

    They are in Chapala, of which Ajijic is a part; a small part. Or, you could visit CFE in Jocotopec, another more significant population center.

    Nogales to Chapala Road Status

    Hotel/Motel Paraiso, in Culiacan, Sinaloa, is pet friendly and very nice, yet economical & has very secure, gated parking in front of your room. They have a good restaurant with room service, which is great & means you don't have to leave the dog in the room alone. It is on Av. International, and close to centro & we found a street-side mariscos place, where we could eat with our dog at an outdoor table; good seafood platters.

    ELECTRIC BILLING AND PAYMENT(CFE)

    CFE is conveniently located and has self-pay machines, as well as a cashier. We always paid that way when out on other errands. If going on a trip, we simply paid ahead. Never a problem in 13 years.

    Nogales to Chapala Road Status

    And, it was also torn up in October, 2014, when we moved to Tucson. I think they use 'roma driveway painters' to do their repairs.

    Uber from GDL

    Probably because they are within the Guadalajara Metropolitan Zone. Chapala is not.

    La Graneria - Wonderful grain, herbs and nut store

    Old salts know to put such items in plastic or metal containers, with a block of dry ice on top. It is not so much to freeze the critters and/or their eggs, but to displace all of the oxygen and replace it with CO2, which is heavier than air. It works!

    Amazon Mexico Questions

    I would suggest the KISS approach.

    Yoghurt

    Sin Azucar = Sugar-free. Sin Edulcorante Artificial = Without artificial sweetener.

    IMSS vs. SP

    That is exactly why we are in Arizona, and will soon be in Texas; we are too old for coverage in Mexico, and not able to continue the 'out of pocket' procedures. As such, we had to leave Chapala in 2014 for the ability to use VA and Medicare in Arizona, as well as get my old lungs to a lower elevation. Now, we are in the process of downsizing further, and going to almost sea level in the Rio Grande Valley. The realtor and photographer are due in an hour.
  10. It has only been a month, so it has probably made it to Guadalajara, or even to Mexico City. 😂 In another month or two, it might arrive at its destination.

    Mercado Libre... signing up

    I would call it a "PIN"......

    Men's electric shavers

    I found the same with Norelco/Phillips electric shavers: The version in Mexico looks the same, but is definitely inferior and the heads are not interchangeable. The Mexican version did not give a close shave.

    Buying a mexican plated car

    You can certainly drive "your brother's car", with his letter of permission, and your name added to "his" insurance policy.
  14. Virtually all crop growers use it, so you are probably doomed. For home use, application to the specific weed is usually the 'spot-control' method, and it does work very well. Pulling weeds is terribly ineffective, and very hard for old folks. Using a herbicide carefully gives the advantage of killing the roots and preventing the weed from going to seed. It is available, generically, in a 2-gallon concentrate for about $50 USD. Diluted, it will make enough for most of our lifetimes. By the way. It is applied to Lake Chapala to kill the lirio.

    Transitos in La Canacinta?

    He is very careful not to be seen accepting a bribe. He will threaten you with arrest/confiscation, etc., but he will often suggest that you leave money on the seat and step out of the car. If you can get him to this point, and happen to have a recording device in your pocket, you might have "evidence".
