  1. Mark Gulco is excellent. https://www.facebook.com/mgulko
  2. Same thing in Chapala. With the lake so low, you can see the pipes that are usually submerged draining raw sewage directly into the lake. Nasty,nasty, nasty smelling!
  3. The ignitor is out on one burner and the oven. It was not my doing, because my pops used to have a hissy fit and shout, "You're going to ruin the ignitor!" every time he heard the click-click-click of the ignitor go on longer than a nanosecond when my mom or I were cooking.
  4. Does anyone know is the service providers mentioned work on stoves/ovens?
  5. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chaac Chaac (also spelled Chac or, in Classic Mayan, Chaahk [t͡ʃaːhk]) is the name of the Maya god of rain, thunder, and lighting. With his lightning axe, Chaac strikes the clouds, causing them to produce thunder and rain. Chaac corresponds to Tlaloc among the Aztecs
  6. I have a substantial number of pesos that I will want to exchange for dollars, either before leaving Mexico or upon my return to the US. Where will I get the best rate? I have an account at BBVA if that is a good option, but I would hesitate to exchange it all at one time for security reasons. If two of us as a couple have more than $10,000usd or the peso equivalent, do we need to declare that at the border? Thanks for any help 🙂
  7. More specifics might yield better recommendations. None of us are mind readers, knowing what you need to have done.
  8. Upscale Bazar just a few doors west of Pancho's in Riberas is a good one. Address: Hidalgo 75-b1, Riberas del Pilar, 45906 Ajijic, Jal. Hours: Saturday 9 AM–2 PM Sunday Closed Monday 9 AM–3 PM Tuesday 9 AM–3 PM Wednesday 9 AM–3 PM Thursday 9 AM–3 PM Friday 9 AM–3 PM
  9. I was there on Wednesday and they were open.
  10. I would highly recommend using an attorney for this. Apparently, timing is critical because the pass is only good for a few days. I'm not a fan, but I have read that Spencer can facilitate this.
  11. While it may be true that the water will not rise inside the tank, it is also true that when the ground here is saturated after weeks of heavy rain, proper below-ground seepage from even the biggest drain tank/field becomes an issue. A saturated sponge cannot hold more water. I would be willing to bet that when one sees hoses draining into streets during the rainy season, people are dealing with this well-known problem. No judgment here, because we have experienced this ourselves.
  12. I appreciate your honesty. Living here for a mere 7 years, I have learned that property owners, and those in real estate, either gloss over the glaring problems with the infrastructure here or lie outright. Once one discovers the truth, it is often too late.
  13. Supply and quality have been an issue there forever along with sanitation.
  14. I blocked them eons ago. My serenity is too precious to listen to their endless blathering.
  15. It is an engine problem and with a flashing check engine light and no power, it must be towed.
  16. Thank you. Does the insurance company arrange the tow after they're contacted?
  17. I need to have my car towed from Chapala Haciendas to Fuentes Peña Goodyear. Has anyone used a grua here that they were happy with and would recommend? Thanks!
  18. And, it doesn't open until noon.
  19. Same family. It's nice when you just need a couple of items to have the store.
