RE: Truck Weight Limits for TIP update.

It sounds like they might possibly be figuring it out! Let's hope that this will be consistent at all of the border crossings.

RE: Bahia Kino?

We have had the same experiences with our two weimaraners. They would be seen through the windshield, and very occasionally it appeared that someone would dare someone to have the door opened. Two big dogs, one terrified person.

RE: Pandemic in Mexico V USA

We live in Zihuatanejo, Guerrero. You can't enter any business without a mask, and mask wearing is expected and done. Things have just changed so two people from one family can enter a store together, and no one under age 12 is allowed, still. There is also a foot bath at the entry of most buildings and many have temperature checking devices there too. The two supermarkets in town have people who spray sanitizer on the cart handles as you enter, and ALL businesses have hand sanitizer at the entrances. The issue here is that we are tourist town. The people from the US and Canada refuse to wear a mask in public, "I'm vaccinated. I don't have to." They are unhappy about having to mask up in a building, but have found that if they don't, they can't enter.

RE: Telcel deals

Gee. We put 100 pesos on our phone every 60 days, an inevitably have some roll over to the next time. Here in Mexico, and to the US, everyone uses Whatsapp, which is free as long as you have wifi. It also allows you to send photos, which TelCel does not. TelCel is great. Sure, you have to listen to commercials, but it's worth it for the great rates.

RE: Bahia Kino?

Fortunately for you, one of our very active members lives in Bahia Kino. He is currently there, is a great guy, and will be able to provide you with everything you want to know and more. Moisheh? You are on!

RE: What food can I bring ...

Hot dogs in our opinion aren't great, but the dogs love them! Milk, any type you want is readily available here, and in the ultra pasteurized form, including almond. Great stuff! Cold cereal (I can't eat that stuff) all of your brands are here. Lunch meat, many types and brands are readily available, don't know for sure, we aren't close to the US border. Cuts of meat? Learn them!!! We grill on our Weber gas BBQ probably 4 nights a week, and are always exploring what is here. Just finished some great filet mignon, we buy them whole and used to take them back to the US with us, they are so good. Cottage cheese is now available, and from several brands including the low fat versions. (That's what we get). It's not the same as the US version, larger curd, but after a year or so without it, we keep it in the refrigerator all the time and love it. Cheese?? OMG! Except for cheddar, we prefer the Mexican cheeses, and fortunately we are close enough to Oaxaca to get the fresh version of their cheese, not the commercial ones. We always have Oaxaca, Mancheco, Chihuahua and ground cheese (panela) in the fridge along with imported parmesan and local produced bleu cheese and brie. We LOVE our cheese! Yes, we are foodies and at least Playaboy can attest to the fact that we work out hard enough that we aren't fatties to go with it. Sure could be though!! Food is wonderful stuff. In a foreign country, better, because you can learn, eat, taste and explore it. Just remember the rules as to what is legal to import!!!

RE: What food can I bring ...

The weenies are gross, but our dogs eat one each morning before their workout. They love the cheapest ones. I'm not a fan anyway.... Deli meats??? Shaky, but if you are here long enough, some are OK to fill the need. A smoked Oaxaca cheese, Sabori extra fina pavo (with tomato and pickles) makes an amazing sandwich! Extra sharp cheddar is unavailable here in Zihuatanejo, but when someone actively contacts us and asks what we want, we ask for a small, about 8 ounce bar of extra sharp, not frozen if possible. It lasts us about a month in small slices that we savor!!! Other than that, Taco Bell, Burger King and Panda Express, we want for nothing.

RE: What food can I bring ...

Chicken wings are readily available anywhere. We have always felt that traveling is an adventure, and the food part can often be the best. We have lived full time in Mexico now for over 4 years, and still find things that we have no clue about. Be it in the mercado, walking the streets, or even in the chain supermarkets, there are always new, unknown items. When it is from other than the supermarket, it's fun to learn the name, what to do with it, where it comes from, then go home and read even more. LOVE traveling and new experiences, especially in Mexico!!

RE: What food can I bring ...

They always managed to board us there and go through us pretty thoroughly, looking for and taking the above mentioned items. Mexican grocery stores are fun!!!! Smoked turkeys are available any time non smoked turkeys are, and we have been able to purchase them in pieces, just like non smoked. Realize that since COVID, we haven't seen turkeys here at all. Maybe this year!

RE: What food can I bring ... Although this is not an "official" list by the Mexican government, it's good. As much as we always preferred to cross the border in both directions at Lukeville/Sonoyta, they are real sticklers about what you can take into Mexico. They searched us a number of times going in. Fortunately almost anything can be purchased in Mexico so we found the list to be easy to comply with. Smoked turkeys are easy to get too.

RE: Crossing Back Into The U.S.

Thanks so much for going to Texas and getting your boosters. That obviously made our president announce boosters. Big smile, and you realize my comment is made in jest and in a friendly manner!

RE: Crossing Back Into The U.S.

Sounds like it went well, but a bit unnerving to see the dregs of violence. Have a nice time!

RE: Inflation in Mexico

The aguinaldo is the equivalent of 2 weeks pay for an employee who has worked all 12 months for you and it is to be paid before December 20. It is not a bonus. If an employee is terminated, laid off, whatever, they are to be paid the aguinaldo for the time that they worked. We just did this for a maid who moved to Tijuana, and the new one will receive hers for the time she has worked this year. When an employee is terminated, laid off, whatever, they almost always have to be paid off. This is not to say that people are doing what they are legally required to do, but that is true in any country. In our area, it seems as though people are paying what they are supposed to pay.

RE: Inflation in Mexico

You are likely correct. We remember some of our very first trips to Mexico in the early 1980's when we changed money and became millionaires. How times have changed! We now live here permanently, in our dream home in Zihuatanejo, and as a bonus find the living expenses to be less than they were in our former Southern California beach enclave.

RE: Inflation in Mexico

The way the rates vary and with a token ATM charge, we figure 20 to one. Easier.

RE: Inflation in Mexico

Thanksgiving isn't celebrated here. To some degree, prices on tortillas are, "controlled," but at least in the state of Guerrero are allowed to fluctuate some.

RE: Inflation in Mexico

We are really seeing the prices on produce vary due to the weather, and have in the past. Today tomatoes here in Zihuatanejo were 29 per kilo at the cheapest places. That's HIGH. But last week it was 39. It should drop soon. But yes, you are seeing changes. Tortillas here have crept up from 15 pesos per kilo to 20, and talk is about possibly them going higher. That is a real indicator of inflation. At least here, a "typical" person consumes a kilo of them a day. WAY different from the way the norteamericanos eat. Gasoline really hasn't changed significantly in a year or so, but centavos do make a real difference. Soft drinks have gone up at least 10%. Liquor is about the same for the last two years. The restaurants that we visit are probably up 10%. It's tough, and like we started to do when Covid hit, we changed our tipping from 15% to a generous 20% and never hesitate to tip anyone doing a service for us.

RE: Changes abound

Hermosillo. HMO is the airport designation. Kino is the town on the coast to the west of Hermosillo where Moisheh has a home. Do please head down here!
