jose says thrifty has really good rates. we are renting from thrifty in cabo because they happen to have a rental office at the westin where we're staying. in general, he told me the other day that renting a car in MX can be very expensive. and yeah, you should get the insurance just in case.

for your cell phone, at&t has international calling plans. i have tmobile, and its an unlocked gsm phone (blackberry pearl). when im down in mx city, i'm able to pick up a signal from telcel and one other carrier usually. if you call your cell carrier before you go down there, ask about turning on your international calling plan (which is often free) so that you dont get roaming charges.

mandy i think you have my personal email already but always feel free to email me if you have a question if i dont respond quickly on the forum! work is getting crazy lately and i get behind on posts and dont always see stuff until a few days later.

Sorry, girls! I am back, and have been scrambling at work ever since. You know how that happens after a vacation. Apparently my doctor has decided that since we didn't work for that week, we have lost money and need to make it up now.

 

Anyway, we had a great time! Because of Semana Santa (Holy week), everything closed for 2 weeks. Don't ask me, I guess Mexicans don't like to work in the springtime. I didn't find a job, and Isaac didn't get to talk to the school, but we did look at a few houses. Most important, Isaac realized that it may be a better idea to rent a house rather than buy one. I guess he had to figure it out for himself! We also rented a car and found our way around the city. By the way, it's a huge city, if you weren't aware.

 

I'll try to re-locate my camera tonight and figure out how to post pics. We'll see how this goes. Thanks girls!

Oh yeah, don't mess with Semana Santa, it's a huge deal where I live so I can imagine in Mexico time stops! Glad you had fun and got to see Guadalajara. I hear it's beautiful!

Well, I lived in Nicaragua, so I knew about Semana Santa. The problem came when we went the week after Semana Santa, and everything was still closed and anyone who might have been working was still at the beach. Should have known.

    • Another option is to find an app that allows for group talk. This Wedding Party App looks pretty neat. https://apracticalwedding.com/wedding-party-app/ 
    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
