  1. Thank you. Doing great 😊. Goodnight.
  2. DIF accepts clothes. I was there last week, and asked them if we could donate clothes that belonged to a friend who passed away recently. Rony
  3. Chapala municipal clinic is where I would go. Not that far from Riberas
  4. I also collected the GB for when Telmex went out. I then used that cell phone ( with plan amigo ) as a hotspot and could continue teaching online classes with those GB s on my laptop. I have had plan amigo for many years and have been very happy with it.
  5. Yes. It rolls over if extended on or before the last day. At one time, I had collected 20 GB in total ( added up... ) Rony
  6. I had the same thing. It lasted a few days and when I finally picked up the phone, I didnt speak and held the phone in front of a German talk radio. It was their last call. I know that it was a cruel thing to do, but hey.....à la guerre comme à la guerre
  7. A while ago, I read something here about the HSBC branch in San Antonio being closed. Was this a temporary thing and are they back open ? My Chapala landlords ( who live in the US ) would like me to pay the rent there. Thanks😊 Rony
  8. So very very sorry, B., What a nightmare. But can you be sure that a private ambulance doesnt call the police either, .....because they might have to. Hugs Rony
  9. Hi B., Not private, but maybe the Chapala municipal clinic can help you. It is my first place to go for doctor or any kind of medical emergency....open 24 hours. Hug Rony
  10. Somebody who can also give you great advice on where and how to get oxygen, is Veronica Torres, the owner of the pharmacy, on the main drag in Chapala : corner Madero and Flavio Romero. In the past, she helped a lot of people getting oxygen. Rony
  11. So sad to read this. I met Louise and Bob, for the first time in 2005, when I started my restaurant in Chapala. I needed somebody to test and taste different kinds of coffee. He did a great job and thanks to him, I found excellent coffee. More importantly, I learnt a lot from this very well travelled and smart man. My heart and thoughts are with Louise. Rony
  12. Another vote for the Mexicans. I worked as a European flight attendant for 14 years ( so,.....I discovered some common traits about my fellow Europeans....not always, but often correct )......and in general, Mexicans ( where I have lived for + 20 years...in Mexico ) are a lot nicer, warmer AND happier than the Spaniards. The Spaniards also tell me that "my Spanish" is not real Spanish. It is "Mexican". They almost consider it as a dialect !( That alone says enough )
  13. I am reading in several Facebook posts today that Banamex in Chapala is closed....until further notice.....
  14. Hi....for the time being, working here in Europe. But ....I will always return to Mexico. Happy 2022 ! Rony
