  1. This is Pia- Her history: About 4 1/2 years ago someone asked me take Pia because her human was not taking her back to the US with her. I did. Little did I even imagine that I would be leaving here. Husband passed away 3 years ago and she has been my companion. Now I am leaving to live with my only daughter and I cannot take her with me to Switzerland (not allowed in apartment) So Pia, the foster child, needs a new home. She is a sweet kitty, loves to snuggle. She has been inside/outside, but I think she would adjust alright to being inside. As an only kitty, not sure how she would do with other cats or dogs. She is a little skittish. She is fully vaccinated, has her litter box, food enough for a few months, flea/worm protection supply for a few months, toys and a small climbing/scratching/hiding tree. She will attach to you, I'm sure. Please tell anyone that you know who needs a sweet companion. My email: martha.dechow@gmail.com
  2. There is an acupuncturist at Total Body Care. He comes from Guadalajara on Tuesdays. I know very little about him. Only speaks Spanish. Since this is the first time I have ever had acupuncture, I cannot give any feedback good/bad. My neck pain is gone.
  3. Yes. She has done some extensive work for me. She is very thorough and conscientious. I recommend her highly. And it is very personal and easy to get an appointment. My experience with another Notaria was not very personal - over an hour wait, even when I had an appointment.
  4. Well, I was correct for Tlajomulco, I was only sharing my experience. How should I know what is expected in Chapala?
  5. NO IT ISN'T. See the comment I made above. I was there today and experienced this. You do have to have the one you got, but you also must have this. It's a lot faster if you already have it in your hand and don't have to wait for them to print it out for you. I know because I had not printed it out.
  6. YOU HAVE TO HAVE THIS! You go back to the mivacuna website, put in your curp and click where it says: Confirm CURP and then click on "Expediente de Vacunacion'. Print this out and take it with you. You have to have it, or they will print it out there for you (takes more time and quality was very poor- probably running out of ink). You also have to have the hand written one to show them you had one vaccine. They only asked for my Permanente Visa, no other documents other than those mentioned above.
  7. Went to Cutlajomulco today for 2nd vaccine. Got there at 2:05, left at. 3:00. Very few people. It took longer because of printing out the form (see note below). Note: If you are going tomorrow or later this week, be sure and go to the registration website and print out the 'Expediente de Vacunacion' and take it with you (I hadn't done it) They have computers there to print one out for you (give them your CURP no.), but you get into the slower lane and wait while they do it. I was only asked for the proof of first vaccine (which, by the way, has no mention of the location given, not even the municipality) and my Permanente visa. Oh, and we had a C, a D and an H in our car and they said nothing. We all got vaccinations.
  8. Isa - she has been coming to my home to give me massages for over a year now. I think she is wonderful. She does relaxing and deep massage- your choice. Also does manicures and pedicures Precious lady, speaks perfect English. Phone and WhatsApp: 332 237 5392
  9. When I got the 1st injection at Tlajomulco, I was told that the 2nd one would be in 21-42 days (i.e. 3-6 weeks). This is the permissible interval according to the CDC.
  10. I think you are correct. Thanks for the clarification. I'll wait for the Tlajomulco directives.
  11. I got mine 3 weeks ago on Thursday, some people on Wednesday. Time flies!
  12. From the FaceBook group, 'Gringos Ajijic &. Lakeside'. I rarely use FaceBook, but recently I have for Covid updates. I happen to check at 11 pm one night and learned about these vaccines. Took off at 7:45 the next morning to Tlajomulco, 1 hr drive, stayed in my car the whole time even for the jab, waited in my car 30 minutes with the occasional visit from a med student to see if I was ok. Out of there in less than an hour. Took me longer to get home because I got lost! Sadly, social media seems to be the only way to be informed, which is tragic for many people who don't use it, or don't have relatives to inform them. I was able to tell my Mexican neighbor about the 2nd vaccine in Jocotopec so he could go the last day. He had gotten no notice, even though he got his first jab there. Others I have informed about registration being open for 50-59 year olds. This is absolutely not right, but I am relieved I could find out about it. Guess FaceBook is good for something!
  13. Pfizer vaccine was given at the University of Tlajomulco 2 weeks ago for anyone over 60 from anywhere. A number of people from this area, including me, got the first jab there.
  14. I got marrow bones at the Tuesday market from the vendor that sells chicken, eggs, butter etc. at the corner to the left, when you come in the front door. The broth was fantastic. Pretty easy, just put into my crock pot with water for a few hours.
  15. Wow. Those are good prices. I paid 900 at Go Labs in Riberas on Saturday for the Antigen. Results emailed back in 2 1/2 hours. PCR test results usually take longer, don't they? Up to 3 days?
  16. I have often used the SS office at the Consulate in Guadalajara. Very helpful. Always get a phone call back within 24 hours of sending an email to Señora Ana Isabel Becerra, fbu.guadalajara@ssa.gov like Mostlylost said. I am pretty sure you can get help solving your problem.
  17. Thank you for sharing. Beautiful
  18. Just went today, a very long wait. Just took my old registration card, paid my money ($674.00) and got a new card, which is to be kept in the car, and a receipt. No more stickers. If stopped, just show the card.
  19. Recommendations on someone to clean ours please.
  20. I traveled round trip to US twice. March-June to the East Coast (felt safer because my sister's home is totally isolated in a forest and I have Medicare coverage). July-Sept to Missoula Montana (for required surgery). I felt very safe in the airports (Charlotte, Mexico City, Denver, Seattle) because of all the precautions. I wore mask, goggles and a face shield for protection. I had no carry on luggage to store in the overhead bins, only under the seat. No reaching over other people. Only on one flight (in March at the start of Covid) of the total of 8 flights was anyone sitting next to me, the other flights I paid extra for seats to the front and I was the only one in the row (American, Aeromexico, Volaris, Southwest, Alaska). I quarantined completely for 2 weeks after my travel, both in the US (hotel/guest cabin) and at home after I returned to Ajijic.(last time only 10 days). My experience. No need to make comments.
  21. If you are going from temporal to permanente: I went on Thursday, June 4 to the office in Chapala. There was only one other person there. All my papers were in order, she took them and told me I would be contacted in 1-2 weeks (mas o menos) for fingerprints. Usually only one week from fingerprints to new card. But now, who knows. Note: Interesting that I have been on this board since before I moved here 4 years ago and am still considered a 'newbie'.
  22. I went to the immigration office in Chapala on Thursday, June 4th at about 10:30. It was open, only one other person there. Had to wait outside and they let one person (couple) in at a time. I was able to submit my application to go from Temporal to Permanente. No problem.
  23. If you can find alcohol anywhere.
  24. Get your head out of the sand and realize this is not overblown hype. Sitting next to someone at Open Circle who has been exposed to the virus coming from US, UK, Spain, Switzerland, Italy, and many other countries is not particularly safe. It can be spread with no symptoms.
  25. This is about more than stocking up on toilet paper. This article is not hype, nor is it "stupid and overblown". Read it if you are interested in a very clear, intelligent, non-hype statistical evaluation of the pandemic and how various countries have responded successfully and what in all probability will happen in the coming weeks. The title of the article is "Coronavirus: Why you must act now"- by Tomas Pueyo https://medium.com/@tomaspueyo/coronavirus-act-today-or-people-will-die-f4d3d9cd99ca In Lakeside, with a large number of ex-pats traveling frequently out of the country, there is a higher risk than perhaps other parts of Mexico. The recommendation for anyone arriving here from a country which has incidence of this virus is to self-quarantine for 14 days. This can significantly restrict the spread of the virus in this country. The virus can be spread before there are any symptoms. Ignoring the significance of this is a danger to everyone.
