I have been residing here in AGS since July. Very nice city and is quite safe for all. Any other Gringos here? Would like to meet and share.

Hi Xicacafe, GranJafe, I am here also and think it would be fun to meet both of you once Xicacafe arrives! I'm actually in Loreto, Zac. but drive the 40 minutes to Aguas pretty frequently (via hwy MX 25). I usually go to the northern part of the city. On Blvd. Avenida Zacatecas is a large mall, Altaria, (just south of Blvd Colosio, and before you get to intersection of Avenida Aguascalientes where Costco is located) with a book store inside (one entire wall is English) The mall is located on the east side of the street Ave Zacatecas, with a Liverpool and a Sears, movies, etc. Other side of the road (east side) has a Walmart and also Home Depot, FedEx, etc. We just finished a renovation of our downstairs bath and spent a lot of time at Home Depot! Last Sunday 5/5/2018 was the last day of the Feria in Aguascalientes and we went to see the sights. Hope to meet up with both of you soon.

my apologies for spelling error "GranJefe" sorry! and correction: it's west side of the street where Home Depot and Walmart and Sams Club are located on Ave Zacatecas, a little bit north of Ave Aguascalientes Nte.

iterator. Thanks so much for the reply. It has been 13 years since I've been to Aguas so I am sure it has changed a LOT. What I am going to do is try to finish out what permits or the process I would meed to find a job there. I hear there a are call center jobs and English teacher jobs. I am so excited about the move and will definitely contact you! It'd be great to meet up with a Tejana!

Hi, so glad to hear that! I think I will try to make an exploratory trip this afternoon to try and locate San Pancho from Loreto, I have been looking on a map and think it might take me about 1.5 hours as the route is new to me. Is there a central meeting place or a place to eat dinner that you could suggest? I will try to get oriented this trip AND if you are available maybe get to see you. But if we miss - at least I will be starting to get to know my way around San Pancho. I would like to give you my telephone - but I am really confused about how this telephone business works when I am out of the house as I have voice over internet in the house to talk with my kids in Dallas. The number that I am going to try to use this afternoon is 044 496 124 5204. My Dallas number with Tmobil is 972-365-5313 and that works for my kids to call me but I usually don't have luck with that outside of the house. IF you could suggest a central restaurant - or coffee place - I could search for that. Thank you and I hope I have luck this afternoon - at least I will make progress and if I do not see you I can report back tomorrow what happened! Ojala que nos vemos! Vivi Mortensen

Gran Jefe,
Actually it is 5pm now and I am heading out, but may not see you this time as I do not have access to my computer when I am driving. Will report back tomorrow how much progress I was able to make. Will plan to go over Asientos towards San Pancho. Wish me luck! Vivi
