  1. The best and fastest route is San Luis Potosí, Matehuala Saltillo, Monterrey cross at Colombia, the booth to get your TIP back is very easy to find, As you drive through the complex you will see a small white building on your left, there is an area to pull off the road in front of the building, that is where you return your TIP. After you exit the US customs head north on the 225 it will take you to I-35 or you can go right on the 1472 which will take you into Laredo, as you enter Laredo there are lots of hotels right along I-35. I usually stay at the Days Inn which just about the first motel you come across.
  2. Ishops has many different size box’s..
  3. Temporary or Permanent visa. RFC Number. And I think a CURP number which will be on your visa. You need copies of all documents.. I would ask at the registration office on Degollado in Chapala
  4. Another newbie coming here trying to impress us with his wisdom..
  5. Don’t waste your money on a Firestick cube unless you want to dim the lights or ask it questions..such as “Is it snowing outside” most TVs will do a better job of upscaling than a cube. Your Firestick will not upscale anything. If you have a 4K TV and a 4K Firestick and the program you watching is 4K your picture will be 4K, if the program isn’t 4K then your picture won’t be 4K unless your TV upscales it.. The Firestick 4K and 4K Max both have voice control so can ask it to find a program and other TV related things. but It won’t dim the lights for you…
  6. I would purchase a Firestick 4K Max. It’s available on Amazon Mexico for $1599 peso shipping included. I would also purchase a Firestick Ethernet adapter, it allows you to plug an Ethernet cable into your Firestick $350 peso…They maybe be cheaper in the US. I don’t think it matters where you register it. Unless you use a VPN it will know exactly where you are. I use mine in Mexico, Canada and UK with no problems.
  7. That was the best consignment store around lakeside. I doubt if anyone even remembers the things they had there, it has to be close to 4 years since she passed away. I hope he keeps the money in memory of Terry, she was a very nice person.
  8. I live in La Floresta, there are recycling bins at the top of the street, on many occasions I have witnessed locals go through the bins taking all of the tin cans, aluminum and other metals and drive away with them.. I’m assuming to sell.
  10. The choetes (Boom Booms) are nothing like they used to be 16yrs ago, back then they were twice as many for twice as long. In my opinion they have been cut back because of the expense. Expats who want to change Mexico to a place they come from like to use the excuse “Mexican families don’t like them either” In 16 yrs I’ve never heard a local Mexican complain about them. Sure they may nod their head while listening to expats complain about the cobblestones, the loud music, the noisy celebrations, choetes and just about everything else here, but in their mind are they really thinking “Why don’t you P off back to where you came from..
  11. Another newbie wants to come here and change Mexico.. Maybe you should have done your due diligence before you moved here..
  12. Another one of these strange posts… I have rented from National on a couple of occasions, once in UK and once in Las Vegas. The only ID they would accept was my Canadian passport. In UK I had a reservation but left my passport back at the hotel, they would not rent until I went back to the hotel and came back with my passport, DL CC HC PR card, nothing was acceptable to them, only passport…
