  1. Today I passed through Guadalajara airport and bought a taxi ticket, as I always do. Cost 435 pesos. Gave 600 pesos as I had to use the ATM to get Mexican cash. Received coins in one hand and bills in the other. Paused to figure out which change to deal with first and noticed that the ticket seller had not put the money I gave him into the cash till. Strange, double checked bills I'd been given: 100 pesos short!!!😠 What burns me is that people like him play into misconceptions about Mexicans. I have NEVER encountered dishonesty here before. Shame on him and I told him so though not in the politest of terms!😂 Moral of the story: don't get distracted by the coins, focus on the bills! I reported him. If you want details re. his identity pm me.
  2. If anyone is considering using his services, you are welcome to contact me privately. After 6 months working with him as architect/builder, we have separated him from the project. For anyone who has built a home anywhere, you will know this was/is a big decision. Beyond my comments, there are other sources of information on his work. For those of you that live locally, Francisco Nando of Las Salvias Aluminum is aware of some architectural review board that covers architects, including those from Guadalajara. If you are aware of this source, you can check on your own or check with Francisco in how to access that information source.
  3. My friend's SS deposits stopped in January, and they are telling her the only way to fix it is to go into the American Embassy in Guadalajara. Has anyone out there had any experience dealing with a SS problem at the Embassy in Guad? Any help will be much appreciated.
  4. Has anyone had cataract surgery in Guadalajara AND chose to enhance it with prescription lens implants? There are several 'options' (multifocal or accommodative , Toric, etc) available NOB these days. What did you/spouse have? Recommendations? Thanx
  5. What time period is considered morning "rush hour(s)" in metropolitan GDL? Thank you.
  6. This article, again I do not consider political, if it is, it will disappear. Is about a documentary film maker's account of life in the super premium gated communities of Guadalajara, many of which house senior cartel leaders. It is another plane of Mexico I never knew existed. Anyhow, an interesting read, with no political agendas intended or implied. http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2017/04/29/the-narco-trafficker-next-door.html

  8. Hi, Does anyone know of an organisation like the British RSPCA or American ASPCA in Mexico, more specifically in Guadalajara? My in-laws have a case of their neighbours poisoning three dogs. Vet saved one so he knows the history surrounding it all. Any contacts or information about what can be done would be greatly appreciated. Thanks p.s apologies for British spelling!

  10. Hi everyone. I will be in Guadalajara with my wife visiting the family this July and August. (We live in London UK at the moment, my wife is Mexican, I'm British) We are looking for a house in Guadalajara to rent for a short period. We are not fussy as long as the property is clean and secure. We are clean and respectful people too! We need 1 bedroom but since my mother and a friend might be coming with us, its possible that we need a 3 bedroom place. House or apartment could be ok. If any of you have or know of a short term rental property (5 weeks) in Guadalajara then please get in touch! And of course photos of the property would be great to see if you have any. Thanks Richard
