No subject or message is needed.
And to refute or confirm some of the responses before mine:
Guanajuato la capital is NOT more expensive: SMA and Ajijic have Guanjuato beat by miles as far as prices. In ajijic and SMA there is a much fatter "gringo tax".
Guanajuato is a student town as well as the state capital and students need affordable housing and food, etc. The city is very youthful in its attitude and has many cultural events available, and welcomes expats, but is not geared to
cater specially to expats.
Marlene, as for the garafones, those are sitting there waiting for the delivery guys to take them to the truck. The delivery guys go up the callejones knocking to inquire if water is needed, then deliver the full (approx 5 gallon)
jugs to the house, placing them where the home owner wants them, trucks the empties back down, and then they are later picked up.
Our place is on one of those steep, impassable by a car or motorcycle even, callejones and we DO have a beautiful view of Pipila, specially from the roof of our house. It (the climb to the front door) is very painful on one's aching joints to get up there !
Finally, Luisita, is that you? I was afraid I had lost you.
Please email me if you care to.
