  1. I have used Francisco's in Riberas for 13 years. Several of my friends and neighbors do, too. I won't let anyone else touch my vehicle.
  2. Youtube has several videos with tips and suggestions from RVers on traveling in Mexico.
  3. SuperLake had Marlowe's buttermilk yesterday. 60 pesos a liter.
  4. Any contract can be written in any language and any currency as long as it is agreed upon by both parties. USD has been accepted currency in majority of rentals here for close to 50 years.
  5. Agents are paid one month's rent by the owner when a one year lease is signed and that is split with the real estate company. There is little money to be made by agents handling rentals, especially low end rentals, which is why most of the agency rentals are mid to upper price homes. It is not because the prices are higher than for a similar home not using an agency. If that was true rental agencies would not exist. If you are looking for a low end home where you will be expected to take care of most maintenance and repair issues then finding a Mexican landlord is the way to go. Of course, there may be some exceptions if you have the time, patience, knowledge and ability to find them.
  6. His camera is certainly his claim to fame, but 1000 pesos for 30 minutes? As I said, he is very expensive.
  7. Would it be possible for you to flip that letter over and post a pic to show the channels that will be eliminated without this update? Thank you.
  8. Thanks to both of you. I am hoping for one or two additional suggestions, also.
  9. Any suggestions for a competent English speaking personal counselor locally? Can be male or female. Social worker, psychologist or neither. Good listening and reflecting skills important. Thank you.
  10. Excellent. Long overdue. Glad they finally tried to make things clearer. So much confusion. So many misinformed rumors.
  11. Happened to one of my neighbors, also. She was not happy to have to fly to a Mexican Consulate in the US to restart the process.
  12. Temporal and Permanente Residents were told to get in line for Mexicans in GDL on the last two flights that I have taken.
  13. Lake Chapala has been a hotbed for UFO sightings since the '40's.
  14. Sounds like several of us bought that nice, large Hamilton Beach convection oven. I love mine. Don't know what I did without it besides waste a lot of propane waiting for the gas stove oven to heat and then more when I was cooking or heating something that wasn't a meal for four or more, but just me. Not to mention the stove oven could heat up half the house, so I couldn't use it for almost three months a year. No problems like that with the countertop convection. No wasted counter space, either. Sits perfectly on top of the microwave. One of my wiser purchases here.
  15. 65 posts and I recall 2 being helpful and appropriate. Sad.
  16. When that happened to me, I didn't want anything else, either and I didn't want to wait, so I gradually increased the number of that add on until they would let me complete the transaction and sold the extras here. I had nine to get rid of, but I did it. Not recommending that, but that was all I could think of to do. Mine was less than five dollars. Mexican flag? I did that, too. Not stolen. Arrived on time in perfect condition. Quality made nylon 3 x 5 or thereabouts, made in US with colors on both sides, not the one sided ones they sell here. Beautiful. There's your answer. Your Amazon order will arrive through UPS, FedEx or DHL, not the Mexican postal service and you will be able to track it online until it is delivered and signed for. Amazon is extremely customer friendly. If There are any issues you might need to report they have gotten back to me within a couple of hours and straightened it out, including an occasional refund.
  17. If your order is only six dollars it might be called an " add on" which means it has to be sent to you with another item with a higher value. That should be clearly shown on the item profile. They are putting it in your to be shipped later section because you have not added any other items. They will hold it there in your account until you increase the amount of your order and then ship it, also.
  18. Interesting. As of January, 2015 Mexico made illegal the importation or sale of all Electrónic cigarettes throughout the country. Enforced or not enforced? Good luck.
  19. I think these became illegal to sell in Mexico about a year ago.
  20. Unable to use " like" button. When I try screen says I have used all Ten of my daily " likes" when I have used none at all. Dan Houck said you are the only one who can fix what he called a "software glitch". I really enjoy " liking helpful and positive responses. Hope you can help, thank you.

  21. I am being blocked from using the like function by the screen that says I have used my daily allotment of 10 when I have used none in over 48 hours. Can you help me? Thank you.

      For stuff like this you have to contact ADMIN "Chapala."  He is at the top of the moderator list on the home page.  We don't have the ability to fix software problems.
