What good is all that water without a family of crocodiles in it?
Hi Steve, Thanks for commenting. Maybe I should take a bus ride over to San Blas and pick up a pair but I don't think the other people on the bus would appreciate riding back here with them. P
Patricia,It has been educational and fun reading through your blog. My husband and I are considering coming down to Ajijic for a month, and if we love it, we will be bringing my parents down for an additional month, with the idea of relocating.I've been reading through your blog looking at accessibility. I am a quadriplegic and am required to be in an electric wheelchair. My husband lived in Ecuador during his middle school years and is looking forward to the idea of livingin Ajijic. I am an adventurous person, with the scuba divers license, Whitewater rafting experience, etc. but, I have never lived anywhere for a long period of time that is not at least semi accessible. I have my own handicap vehicle and we thought maybe we would make the vehicle available for others. I noticed some of the bus pictures you had and there doesn't seem to be any wheelchair lift on the buses. I am used to not being able to get into certain buildings and certain areas. Can I just drive my wheelchair down the middle of the road? Some of the roads are made of rock. Will I get stuck?If you are willing I would sure like to ask you a million questions or perhaps you know someone locally that is confinedto a wheelchair.Thank you for all the information,Angie
Hi Angie, Thank you so much for writing. I hope I can be of some help with information. I am thinking that Chapala would be better for you than Ajijic. They have cement sidewalks and in Ajijic we have mostly cobblestones. These cobblestones are treacherous and there is no way you could drive your wheel chair down the street.Yes you would probably get stuck or run over. At least I think not. The buses are NOT set up for wheel chairs. This is not a very wheel chair friendly environment.
Hi Patty,Beautiful picture of lake.I just read this article from My local news paper.http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/crime-scene/post/fairfax-fugitive-on-run-for-nearly-12-years-captured-in-mexico/2012/0Be careful, who you run into.Take care,Min
Hi Min, Thank you. Unfortunately, that link isn't working now but I saw by the title what it was about. I met a couple who have been living here for twenty years. They said that when they first came here, the only expats around were people running from the law or the tax man. Thanks for writing. p
