  1. Exactly ! There are three ways you could be hit with fees when using your debit card overseas. First, your bank could charge you a fee for using an out-of-network ATM — both at home and at ATMs abroad. Second, the bank that owns the ATM could tack on additional fees. Finally, you can be charged foreign transaction fees at the ATM, just as you can when making credit card purchases.
  2. This is not the place to suggest that. No one here has any authority over that.
  3. One would think that those who live here understand about that traffic and the drive there. They are old enough to make their own decisions. Seems to me that trying to impose your standards on others is not cool.
  4. Evidently it was not OK with one neighbor.
  5. Easy enough to tell, if no hanging placard, not qualified to use the space. All with serious need will qualify.
  6. Such a common problem in all of Mexico. In over 20 years, I have never seen any enforcement to solve this problem. Once, I saw a cop shake his finger at a young woman that had parked in one. She just ignored him, and he did nothing. When it comes to parking in Mexico, it is dog eat dog.
  7. What issues? Only 1 person has mentioned a personal bad experience and several first hand positive experiences. No he said, she said crap here.
  8. Just wondering what areas you found on you previous visits Lakeside? If you plan to live here for 12 months, surely you have make at least 2-3 visits to check out the area. Once you settle in on a 12 month lease, you are "stuck", so do your "due diligence" beforehand, as this is not Kansas.
  9. You are definitely getting information about the "clowns" here and those people who have no purpose in their lives except to derail OPs. It is what it is here.
  10. No one made you the "expert" here, why not let people make their own list, since your input was not asked for. The OP is intelligent, don't show her disrespect.
  11. What a rude replay ! Why not "butt out" about where others live and only reply to facts about where you live.
  12. Same as Mostly, but been doing it since 1997. Never a problem, and we never use toll roads until Saltillo By-Pass.
  13. Depends on how much electric you use in those months and how much you used in the other months.Easy enough to monitor and check your usage.
  14. They do no guarantee you need to read carefully what it says. It says "up to 50 mb, so 19 is actually "up to 50". You got what they said they would give. Not their fault you can read.
  15. Yep ! Especially f you need the medicine for more than 10 days it can get Very expensive.
  16. According to the Mexican Emblem, Flag and Hymn law, burning the flag is the correct way to dispose of a damaged or old flag but it should be done with respect. If it is not done respectfully or it's not a damaged flag, burning it will get you fined with the equivalent of 250 days of minimum wage (around $1,000 USD)and can get you 35 days of jail time. Suggest you let someone show you how to use "google", it really is VERY simple. I just "googled" this "how to dispose of an old Mexican flag" and guess what I found?
  17. My guess is he can spell as well as many on this Forum, but he chose his own version just to rattle the chains of those hung up on spelling. Just another way to get some more Feed. YMMD
  18. I think there is another type besides the "Trolls". There are certain people who get as much pleasure as the "Trolls" by continuing to "feed the Trolls". No matter what you tell them, they just keep on every time a "Troll" posts. You can see who they are here, just as you can see the "trolls". These "Feeders" get too much pleasure to stop, just like the "Trolls". Both groups live for their opportunities here.
