The few Hoa (sp.) Vietnamese that I knew could all speak Chinese, or so they said.

So is Las Mina's the same thing that this fool was talking about in 2011?

And the road that is visible from the Pemex on the bypass is another thing that still leads to nowhere?
I get the two confused.

There are Chinese everywhere in Asia except maybe Japan, I do not know about Japan and considering what manyolder Chinese think of Japan maybe not but wether it is Malaysia, Thailand or Vietnam al these countries have lots of Chinese living there, there are many Chinatowns ,
A lot of the boat people who came from Vietnam were of Chinese origin. In the Paris Chinese district (the 13th) a lot of Vietnamese there speak Chinese and Vietnamese.
We have had Vietnamese for a very long time since it was a colony and all the Vietnamese that lived in France to the 60´s spoke French and Vietnamese after that new waves of Asian came and more Vietnamese came but many were ehtnic Chinese so they spoke Vietnamese and Chinese.

The road is supposed to reach the very top of the mountain where the land is flat according to the man I know who works on the project. It does not look that way from below but I guess there must be some flat land somewhere or may be they will flatten out the top of the mountain, who knows..It seems that someone has a whole lot of money to invest in that project, the road alone, not to mention the permits have to be costing a pretty penny.

I think I read somewhere, a long time ago, that Ho Chi Minh was totally fluent in French.

I thought Omar had a finger in it as well. . .

Unfortunately, I have a full view of it from my mirador and it is butt-ugly. They have gone higher up, cut deeply into the hillside, and are working on it every day. As someone said, one day all the hillsides will be studded with houses, it's inevitable and this is just the first atrocity.

We are hoping for this as well. We can see it from over here....and yes, it's ugly, even from a distance.

It will be interesting to see if the developer joins the local real estate association or works with a particular office in order to have the project in the MLS.
"Omar" is already a member of CAR.

NOT SO! These are the facts:
The casino-hotel complex (bankrolled by the Palacio Development Group) was a totally different development project that was supposed to be located in the heart of a residential fracc. set the hills to the east of Chula Vista Norte...the promoters have vanished and it appears that the plan has been ditched.

Las Minas, accessed by the road snaking up into to the hills, is designed as a vacation home residential development broken up into lots measuring (as advertised) from a minimum of 6,456 square feet (600 mt.2), with a section of bungalow rental units built for visiting tourists at the top end.

The developers have obtained various permits and authorizations from federal, state and municipal government agencies dating back as far as 2004. As a result, Chapala authorities now have their hands tied because if they try to block or scrap the project, the city would likely face law suits that could cost a small fortune in punitive damage$$$.

The risk of landslides is a debatable issue. According to city hall sources, the land is rock solid and safe for construction. Real dangers exist in areas where constructions are situated on steep inclines lying in the path of natural creek beds or man-made channels for rainwater run-off.

No argument here about the visual blight Las Minas inflicts on the mountain landscape...nor the local government's piss-poor long-term vision for controlling urban sprawl which has persisted throughout all recent money-hungry administrations.

No different than any other government throughout NA. Who said that the municipality ever wanted to stop it?
