  1. Does anyone know the name and contact info of a Mex Customs Agent on the Mex/Texas border.. Im trying to legalize a very small enclosed cargo trailer. It is amazing Ive contacted many many of them. They either dont do trailers or they dont respond to my calls or emails. But i know someone does as Ive met many people here in mexico that have had it done. Of course our mexican friends say it is not necessary......lol.....but with my luck if I brought it in, it would be confiscated. We are Permanent. Thank you for any help.

  3. Want to buy a enclosed cargo trailer. At least 10 feet long, 6 feet wide, and 6 feet tall. Light weight. Converting to a tiny camper. Needs to be legalized for mexico if from the US or Canada. Thank you.
  4. We have a very dear friend, very young man.....soooooooo talented. Well, my phone would not charge. I took it to where I bought it, Telcel. The repair man they use said it was not possible to repair. So I went to another telcel for a 2nd opinion. They guy said yes i can fix it. $300 pesos. He did but it only lasted one week. So I gave it to our friend. He fixed it. He fixed my husbands phone also. He fixes all our friends phones. So we are putting him through a tech school in Guad to be able to get his certificate to enter that career as he is amazingly talented. If youve tried everything and nothing has worked and you are interested in him looking at it, let me know. Boswellbarbara3@gmail.com Barbara
  5. my friend is asking approximately how many hours and when do you need him?
  6. i know an excellent guy, ill let you know soon.
  7. I spoke total spanish and was very very polite.
  8. Yes, i went to buy an item, but i asked if it did not fit could i exchange it. He said no you cannot. I said so i cannot bring back anything i buy here in the store for a refund or exchange and he said that is right you cannot. I can honestly say ive never had good customer service there so quess what: I will never darken their doors again....thats the great thing about capitalism....horrible stores hopefully go out of business.....
  9. Most all of our friends are mexican in our church. One friend just put her kids in Tae kwon do,,,,,spelled wrong sorry....3 days a week after school one hour for $400 pesos, $20US a month. the other is in futball. There are many activities offered, zumba, etc
  10. Uzziel is awesome. We used him to install without calling the company, then when we moved to another place.....He really knows Customer service......at least our experience.
  11. yes, mom and pop stores are cheaper. I go to them all the time and avoid Walmart unless there is one item i cannot get elsewhere. All our mexican friends say the Oxxos are more expensive also. One time we went to the new Vevero in riberas on the mountain side, got a quote for a 5 foot Tabachin tree, $2,800 !!!!! ($140 US) Went down the road to another one,,,,same tree....$120 pesos ($6).....lol....better shop around. Us, like many probably, when we first moved here we think the prices are pretty cheap, at least reasonable, then when you have friends with the locals, you realize how much you are paying through the nose!!! Went to the "gringo" chopo lab...got a quote for 3 tests....then went to my lab in Chapala.....one third the price for the same 3 tests !!!
  12. just finished last week taking two mexican friends in their 20's to joco. Had to go early to get in line as they only take a few each day. Open at 8am, we were there by 6:30, 3 already in line. No appointment necessary. They were told what documents they needed. Had to return the next day....as we did very early, gave documents. Then one week later we returned for the actual new card. Yes it was for their 10 year renewal.
  13. does he have to go to loredo? Would Arizona do?
  14. $200 went today, chapala, excellent dr. Gringo landia is always more expensive. Went to Chopo lab recommended by gringo serving dr.,,,,3 times the cost of my lab in Chapala......Also, you can go to Similares pharmacy in chapala and go to their dr, just to the left of the pharmacy, I think 50 pesos, but not totally sure. Just know its very very low.
  15. Asked a local and he said it was a "manifestation"
  16. yes, it is like when we moved from California to a small town in Texas when i was a child. My father had a stove vent a hood installed in his restaurant. My dad asked the guy that installed it what it was made of and the guy said "well, it looks like lunyan but its really chrone" "lunyan" = Aluminum chrone=chrome......anyway we loved Texas and the people.
  17. Its the mexican way unfortunately. Many put their dogs out at night to find food as they dont have the money to feed them.....there is no law to keep them from doing it....at least it is not enforced. I had one like that and asked the woman if i could have her she said yes it is a gift to you and i gave her $200 pesos. Ive had her ever since......
  18. yes ive been here 12 years and also do turbo tax. no download necessary. I just go to the site, log in and do the taxes.
  19. Hello Drew. We switched to total play from telmex. It was awesome. then our grandson came to live with us, he is a serious gamer. The router is down stairs, not close, his gaming computer is upstairs. We got the extender from Total Play. He use to say the wifi in Texas was the best. Now he says this is awesome and probably the reason he wants to live here in mexico with us...lol...
