  1. Thanks so much Intercasa! I have my appointment this Thursday, hopefully all my i's dotted and t's crossed thanks to Veronica Munoz. Keep your fingers crossed for me, because I've gotta move out by mid September!
  2. Well you must have read the glowing reports on how easy it was to deal with the Mx consulates in the states, didn't you? Anyway the issue hopefully is resolved thanks to yes... a Mexican. But I did get the name and number of an immigration lawyer ... so if I'd needed one, I got a lead from this forum.
  3. Yes I've been there many many times.. in fact everyday for almost 2 months, last month there was a calendar, but you couldn't click a month or a date within that month to make an appt, this month there is no calendar at all... which was why I was in panic mode. At this consulate I believe there is an algorithm which deflects anyone who is not a Mexican citizen as I believe there is very little request to go TO Mexico to live from here. But the point is moot as I DO have an appointment this week thanks to Veronica Munoz from the Chapala Society. Yay!!!
  4. Don't assume.... unless you've walked a mile in my shoes. Chit happens.
  5. It's a long and short nerve wracking story. 😳
  6. No indeed as I've been told numerous times to make an appt online..... and there is no place to MAKE an appointment online. I live in Italy, the nearest Consulate is 3 hours away by car and the only other one is in Rome 6 hours by train. It's a long story about a house being on the market for a year and selling at the last moment with an already prebooked flight and the furniture can't go unless I get the V.T. Ya know, not everywhere is as easy as the States.
  7. I need an immigration lawyer for the visa temporal fast! My consulate here won't even let me make an appointment and they are very rude on the phone when I try to get information... can anyone recommend someone?
  8. Fiber for home use of course. Maybe you'll grasp this video instead:
  9. So, you didn't read the article. If you have a choice between fiber optic or 5G (I know it has become available in some areas)... take fiber. Then do your do diligence and research what could go wrong with 5G before defending it's necessity.
  10. Living the fantasy life on the lake I see.
  11. https://draxe.com/5g-health-effects/ If it's supposedly only borderline safe for humans, then what about insects, birds, plants and animals? That's what I meant about politics coming to you, why the Chapala area, where most internet users are retired and just sending emails, checking your bank statements or playing on FB.. just how much speed do you think you really need, enough to be irradiated by microwaves on every street corner? They've discovered that 5G has a lot of negative effects and it's been rolling out without the proper accumulated testing data on living things. Look it up yourself.
  12. I know that I'm a firm believer in luggage straps and if and where possible... wrapping the whole thing in plastic film, not pretty, but it really does keep it together. 😉
  13. Except that they are spouting about the arrival of 5G in the area... unfortunately unasked for politics will come to you whether you like it or not.
  14. Speaking of noise.... can you get double pane windows anywhere around the Lake Chapala area?
  15. Thanks to all for giving me a ball park idea of the prices.... considering that it will be my first time to Ajijic, forewarned is forearmed!
  16. So what is the acceptable rate for a taxi or Uber from GDL to Ajijic???
  17. Off topic, but you might be the person to ask whether or not dogs are allowed on the buses around Lake Chapala?
  18. This sounds like a very pertinent and important class, cultural norms are the foundations of a society... unfortunately I won't be in Ajijic until the end of September. Hopefully they will do this class again!
  19. Thanks so much for your knowledgeable response AlongTheWay!
  20. I have a question... does anyone know how long it takes to motor boat from San Luis Soyatlán to Ajijic, and whether or not there is a little ferry which does this twice a day?
