I just google "1 dollar in pesos" and get the current rate, It shows 18.84 pesos per dollar right now.
Schwab paid 18.69 pesos per dollar for an ATM withdrawal that I made last night. And remeber, Schwab refunds all ATM fees to your account, at the end of every month
No problem filling up with magna / verde in Chapala this morning (Wednesday). Filled the SUV and 2 gas cans (for weedwhacker, compost grinder etc), total of 1375 pesos, no issue with supply.
I saw some Saltillo tile at a tile store in Chapala - on the same side street as the bus station, past the Prisa paint store but before the fabric store.
I've used Ambien/zolpidem occasionally, but what I've found that works even better for me AND is dirt cheap is difenhidramina -- the generic equivalent of Nytol. It's an antihistamine, available without prescription. Also helps to just clear the mind and count backwards from 100...just concentrate on the numbers...99..98..I'm getting sleepy...yawn
There is a reverse osmosis water vendor in back of the market in Chapala. An American from that company handed out fliers at the American Legion, that's how we heard of them. We just started using them because our old water company moved. They charge 10 pesos a garafon for pickup, 13 pesos with delivery I believe (we always pick up). Don't have the name, phone or address, if anyone needs it PM me and I'll get that info the next time we go.
Vacuum cleaner repair? foreign models
I have 2 good vacuum cleaners, both bought in the US, which need repairs. An upright Shark, which needs a new on/off switch; and a canistar Miele, which seems to have a burnt-out motor.
Electrodomesticos said, "no can get parts". I can see the parts needed! for sale on Amazon.mx, ebay mx etc.
Any suggestions on who might actually be able to repair these?
