  1. We're moving stuff from Seattle to Ajijic. Some of it is ours; we're permanentes. Other stuff is our daughter's; she's moving down here but doesn't yet have either a temporal or a permanente. We'd like to ship a pod from Seattle to Laredo, and maybe find someone from Ajijic to take a truck up to Laredo, load our stuff from the pod terminal, and navigate the customs process to cross the border and bring the stuff down here. The "stuff" is about the equivalent of a one- or two-bedroom apartment. Anyone have experience with this process? Suggestions whom to hire to do this for us (if in fact it's even doable)? I'll talk to Lake Chapala Moving tomorrow, but I've heard you can wait weeks or even months for them to have space available on a truck from Laredo. Plus, I'm wondering if it can be done safely for cheaper than Lake Chapala Moving would charge.
  2. Thanks, Bisbee Gal! That's really helpful. I signed up for Amazon.com.mx (somehow, after more than a year here we hadn't figured out that amazon.com.mx is a whole different thing that requires a different account from your amazon.com account. And then - voila! - I bought a pack of strings with 1-day delivery... until ... the next day happened (that would be today) and I got a note saying my shipment would be delayed til Feb. 6. Feb. 6! 2 ½ more weeks without a guitar! Anyway, thanks for the tip on amazon.com.mx. We'll use it a lot, I'm sure.
  3. Anyone know where to buy or order steel acoustic guitar strings in Ajijic/Chapala? Help! My high E string broke and I'm guitar-less til i can replace it! I searched online for Guad music stores, and the ones i found hardly carry anything in the way of strings, let alone acoustic steel. Amazon wants to charge $30 for shipping one set of strings to Mexico. Not sure about the music store in San Antonio, but at this writing (Sat. morn), it doesn't look like it'll be open til Tuesday. Anyone? I'm having withdrawal symptoms. Shaking so hard it's difficult to type ...
