  1. It happens to.me a Lot Just happened with Uber that did not accept My US card or my BBVA card. Also happens in other cases and cannot figure out why
  2. Francisco del Rio 3322489827. Reliable did all my tile floors and pool
  3. Not really, the distances is what is important.Granted the cold climate makes things more complicated but the distance between the water heater and the delivery pont is what is important and should be taken into account.. I have a de paso here In Ajijic with a capacity for 3 delivery points and it works fine but the distance between the delivery points and the heater is short The kitchen is further away on the límit and the water does not get as hot and that is here i'm balmy Ajijic. i love de paso because they sabe a Lot of gas.
  4. I asked an ingeneer what to do as one bathroom is 35 m from the heater.The house is a one story 2 bedroom and he told me to get a heater to cover 4 yo 5 bedroom if both bathrooms are ocupied on a regular basis or a 3 to 4 bedroom one as it is a guest bedroom.there is no way to install a small hot water next to each bathroom.like artsnob did. The water for a 2 bathroom one does not travel well over 15 metres especially where i live where it gets very could.
  5. Good explanation of what can happen. I wire too and get My ss directo deposites in.my bank. I actually use the machinne less that i used to and always get cash at the atm where the sucursal is..
  6. Yes, that is terrible from USAA and also from CI bank. There is something really wrong with their system.
  7. I had the atm at hsbc not función right but i got My money back..Any machine Will malfintio. Once i'm a while butwhay happened at cibank is inexcusable
  8. if it was at night the dog was not in danger of overheating, he mayhave had separation anxiety and it probavly was not in any danger just stressed. I have a dog who will walk in the next room while we are at home with him and will start crying and howling totally stressed out because he is alone.. My dogs are all crate trained and feel safer in a crate but one of them will make a huge racket if I am not around al the time and near him.. He is a rescue so who knows what happend to him before. Call the police because a dog in no danger is barking in Mexico?? Pretty funny
  9. ATM machines have cameras so no need to call anyone. It probably did not work and someone pocketed the money when they saw the camera was not on.. or something like that.. as artsnob says do not go to that machine .. or my recommendation close the account and go somewhere else, a bank that lets things happen to their customers and goes against them should be walked away from.
  10. Not all banks are the same. I had preoblems twice at HSBC and once at BBVA but in every case I got the money back.. The is something wrong with that ATM.. THe machines have to balance at the end of the day and they have cameras, something bad happened. SOmeone got that money . I would think..Someone familiar with the system.
  11. Chapala does not give discount high enough to Mexicans to be worth it.The early Bird discount is higher that what they give to Mexicans.I am.a citizen and asked about it.
  12. Tour the ruins at Guachimontones and have lunch at the Hacienda who is nearby
  13. I have a microvawe oven that has a grill and a convection oven . Brand Daewood
  14. Interesting that Chapala cannot get it together and that Teotitlan del Valley. , an indigenous small town in Oaxaca, recycles and is cleaner tham Chapala would ever hope to be-- Maybe the city hall people should go there to see how it is done.
  15. he he you have to speak the language of the good paying customers.
  16. yes first thing to do, then check your appliances consumption any electrician can do this or show you how to do it.
  17. all drugs dealers on the treet are low level and expandable, pretty sad really. I think thes guys know better than start trouble by harrassing foreigners. They have never bothered me once when I walk by, just stay away from the dog, easy enough to ignore, just do not go by ther eif they bother you.
  18. All you have to do,e is drive by once in a while and yes it is where th dealers moved to. I do not know if they have anything to do with the van but if it is the same gang or cartel they are but I remember that at one time the police did not want to mess around with the guys from that area because they were helping the children at Christmas so maybe it is one of the reason nothing happens.. The police is thinking of the children..
  19. Maybe the rents in the malls is too high for carwashs
  20. the big plus is that we do not have any horse or cow carcass rotting away slowly under lime. I remember it would take a year for a whole horse or cow to disappear..I have not seen one of those for ages, Thank God.
  21. Have you tried to go to west ajojic via the village lately? They are redoing streets and you never know which ones are blcocked and this week I had to go to the carretera as Zaragosa was blocked.. sometimes Hidalgo differnt sections as the week progresses.. It is awful.
  22. Also BBVA is now refusing to pur two people on the account..Thy say it is the law but it is their policies not the law as I opnd an account at Santander with a titular and a second signature.
  23. More and more traffic, more 2 and 3 storey houses less land available, more doctors and clinics/hospitals , faster and better internet, more badly paved road even the prolongation of Ocampo is paved now.etc.. I ll be leaving after I sell my house for another part of Mexico.
  24. Education or training is the key to help people.. giving food, clothing , overpaying etc can only be temporary, It is a blackhole and have people expecting to be helped...not good in the long run for anyone.
  25. Mexicans ask for a better prices and the foreigners do not..
