  1. Real pleased to see Mario’s ( with Eric ) opening on Hidalgo in the village ( the newly renovated Amores ) plus a Mongolian bowl in west Ajijic…coming soon…just maybe good oriental food in Ajijic
  2. Ajijic tree service….have used them for years …great service..excellent cleanup and considerably less expensive…Francisco..333 452 9843 .
  3. As several posters mentioned above, this has been an Easter tradition, Lakeside… As I walked by this morning both bars and restaurants were being set up along with trampolines mini kayaks and flotation devices… Music playing , many people were fishing and kids were playing in the water. Large family groups were eating and drinking, having a good old time.. just wonderful to see people enjoying the lake.
  4. After years of treatment by Alta retina for my macular degeneration I have nothing but good things to say. Every diagnosis and treatment I have received was corroborated by one of the best eye clinics in the US . Alta retina has the same state of the art equipment as my clinic in Florida and I find Dr. Rios to be both professional and personable, he also speaks perfect English.
  5. Several months ago I was in line at the CI bank in the mall, as usual, only one of the ATMs appeared to be working. A little older lady appeared to be having some difficulty working the machine…. Eventually, she left the glass boot while attempting to deal with her cash, her wallet and purse. The next guy in line said…. They should have an ATM just for a little old ladies… she made eyeiContact with him and said maybe they should have one for ###….les as well …everyone in line laughed except….p
  6. I ‘m making a tropical fruit strudel for a dinner party …would like some kiwis for colour…anyone seen any lately ?…thanks.
  7. You are confusing, black rice with wild rice…. Black rice is an extremely nutritious rice found in Asia, of which there are several varieties that tend to be purpleish in colour
  8. Dostortas mentioned several that would have been on my list….we live up the mountain in Las Salvias which does get some noise from the village …not enough to bother us ,as one moves west Rancho del Oro ,Villa Nova and so forth tend to become quieter .Friends of ours live in upper and lower Chula Vista as well as parts of east La floresta they also are happy with the noise levels…l could go one but I am a slow typer and have a busy life so….
  9. Bought one yesterday at Walmart …. Not necessarily cheap two metres….1800pesos …. my daughter paid about the same in Florida over the weekend .
  10. Lakeside 7…at this rate Lakeside must be ranked as one of the most polluted noise & exhaust fumes areas……as compared with ? A master plan… one of many classical failures…...Probably one of the most ridiculous statements ..even on this web board . If things are so bad perhaps you shouldn’t be here .
  11. Blanket generalizations without personal specific knowledge tend to be useless……just because you are unaware of relatively quiet neighborhoods does not mean they don’t existed…several of our friends live in them…
  12. Perhaps I should have said comparatively quiet by Mexican standards… Only Death brings perfect quiet…so maybe careful what you wish for…..
  13. There are many nice , quiet,safe neighborhoods Lakeside….why make comments like this when you don’t even live here ?
  14. Thank you Bandolier…I am having trouble reaching you… Our home phone is 334 302 9055.
  15. Thanks….found them at Panchos west this morning
  16. Usually just before thanksgiving no problem ….didn’t see any this weekend…..has everyone seen any ?
  17. I always preferred the food at El Jardin , plus the people watching….
  18. Carnivore….seems to me you’re not having much luck with dinner lately…..maybe it’s time you came to our house…providing of course you don’t write a review …promise no liver and fave beans .
  19. Sorry folks…well not really …but I prefer the livers of restaurants critics to be pan roasted with fave beans and a nice little Chianti…for obvious reasons…
  20. As my ancient grandma used to say ….if you’ve got nothing good to say maybe you shouldn’t say anything…..
  21. Ixora does not always do well here…it requires constant sunshine and moist non alkaline soil in order to bloom year round as it does in S Florida and at the coast here in Mexico. The temp should also never go below 60 f . But saying all that my neighbor here in las salvias has a clump that seems to do well ..it does however get direct sun from dawn til dusk .
  22. Also arrived back in early October…at Passport Control we were told by an English speaking agent that the FMM form was no longer being used…he returned them to us and said the passport stamp was all that was necessary…….this has also happened to several of our friends. The airlines do still however require the bottom section of the FMM form..( at the moment )
  23. Returned early October…Passport control..( English speaking ) told us…no longer using FMM….gave them back to us …indicated passport stamp only .
  24. My stereo receiver just bit the dust and I’m stuck with Alexa…at present we are in Bucerias , we will be back in Ajijicafter the weekend… I would love to have it if it’s still available on our return…Plus would be glad to make donation to thrift shop of your choice…Ian
