  1. Also about that human trafficking that Mudgirl expounded on. Yes it unfortunately exists everywhere. But I am curious about where much of the Mexican human traffickers are trafficking these humans? Could it possibly be to el Norte y el más allá?
  2. Ok I just spoke with a cholo friend of mine and he confirmed that there was a shooting the day before yesterday up in the Plaza de Toro neighborhood. One guy was shot. According to US standards thats hardly a shootout. It sounds more like one bad guy was sent out to kill another bad guy. If occasional incidents like that frighten you here, living back in the States should truly terrify you.
  3. I still want to know more about that shootout that Luvsdawgs says happened yesterday in Chapala. I live downtown and haven't heard anything or read anything about it. Not saying it didn't happen but my guess is it happened in one of the more rougher neighborhoods up on the hill somewhere.
  4. Jim Bowie, in all seriousness the poor air quality has a lot also to do with topography. Large mega cities surrounded by high a$$ mountains with no where for the pollution to go. That little fact should be measured in the equation. Los Angeles is another example.
  5. Ken and Patti just disregard the few toxic people on this forum. They always make the loudest noise. In reality there are so many warm and friendly expats living here and not to forget the truly wonderful Mexican locals here. Its honestly a beautiful area with so much to see and do here, that is why this area attracts so many expats. But yet again due to Covid fears many of the elderly expats here just grumpily still hide out at home and easily become grumpy and nasty behind their computer screens. They seriously need to start getting out more.
  6. The majority of the expats here do not speak passable Spanish many speak nothing at all and they seem to be getting by just fine. Of course its preferable to learn Spanish or at least learn enough to get by. Just ignore the toxic negative nasty people on this forum. When walking around town most of the expats here are actually pretty friendly and nice.
  7. I was referring to the Mexico News Daily article that Cedros posted.
  8. I guess the real question is, where do you live? I live in Chapala. I can talk about bars in Chapala but I don't know a lot about bars in the other towns. In Chapala the best place to meet expats would be the bar at the American Legion, possibly followed by the Patio Restaurant on Tuesdays and Thursdays. You generally see expats also at the Coffee Hour, Marios, and Bar El Toro. The Iron Horse bar in Riberas attracts a lot too. And thats why I generally just go to the cantinas, jaja.
  9. That article was from October 2018.
  10. Flexi shoes are made in Mexico. https://flexi.shoes/news/2018/08/10/80-years-walking-shoes/
  11. And the loud fiddling of cicada wings goes on.
  12. Check out the orthopedic store in Chapala on Calle Degollado across from the shoe repair shop.
  13. You know you can always go to google or what ever search engine you use and type in your query and put chapala.com at the end and you will get similar results without the aggravation of it being timed out.
  14. There is one in Chapala on Calle Degollado a block over from Avenida Madero on the right hand side. Look for the house or shop covered in brown tiles. But I would wait till after Semana Santa if you want easier parking.
  15. Also the clock guy next to the Chapala bus station passed away a few years ago.
  16. It looks like this from the outside. Not easy to miss. It'll be on your left. https://www.google.com/search?q=restaurant+letra+ch+chapala&client=ms-android-americamovil-mx-revc&prmd=imnv&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwjt1Jbp2Y33AhWbLc0KHeXmBUUQ_AUoAXoECAIQAQ&biw=412&bih=686&dpr=1.75#imgrc=JZIWQ919N6zYAM
  17. The forth street up from the glorieta to me suggests 4 blocks up. I think it is closer to being a block and a half North after you pass the train station. The train station is literally next to the glorieta. Its pretty simple.
  18. Come into Chapala via the carretera, stop at the light as you enter town, keep going straight until you pass the legion, go to the end, turn left on Cristianía Ave (Gonzalez Gallo) where the park de la Cristiania is. Follow road north till you get to the glorieta, go through glorieta still going north, pass train station on the right, it is approx. a block further up on your left.
  19. I am sure it depends a lot on the species of cicada. I am originally from North Carolina where it is never hot and dry, there when it is hot it is extremely humid and muggy and the cicadas there seem to sing all summer long. Here in México the cicadas or "rainbirds" always seem to peter out right when the rains come.
  20. I am always close because I know it starts in and around the 15th of June, give or take a day or two. Its amazingly like clock work every year. Kind of like how the "real" rains mostly always come at night. Sometimes it starts on the 13th or the 17th but always in and around the second week of June. I want to say I said the 16th but too lazy to check. And also too lazy to check when Maincoons gave the results and what they were.
  21. I just googled it for you. Actually there are several. https://www.google.com/search?q=templo+budista+gdl&oq=templo+budista+gdl&aqs=chrome..69i57j0i22i30.7442j0j4&client=ms-android-americamovil-mx-revc&sourceid=chrome-mobile&ie=UTF-8#trex=m_r:1,m_t:gwp,rc_q:templo%20budista%20gdl,rc_ui:2,ru_gwp:0%2C6,ru_q:templo%20budista%20gdl,trex_id:WlFscf
  22. There is a Buddhist temple in Gdl. I think its not far from the Minerva Statue. There are also several Asian grocery stores around the Minerva.
  23. Well what other options are there for people that would like to be buried down here instead of cremated?
  24. Does anybody know how difficult it is to obtain a burial plot in the Chapala Panteón? Just asking because not everybody wants to be cremated.
