URGENT!!! If anyone knows how I can get my RX meds shipped via DHL from the US to here without hiccup please call me at 044-612-135-6815. I forgot them and am in a real bind as need to be ordered around here. The person shipping them for me keeps running into road blocks when they try to send them. Thanks. - Ashley, ashley.self (-at-)

Re Banking Here in Todos Santos, Mexico.

I have a BaNorte peso account here and a Wells Fargo Bank account in the US. I pay US bills via WFB and receive US deposits there.

Recently, WFB instituted a Remission Account with BaNorte which allows WFB money transfers to BaNorte overnight. I can move up to 3 thousand dollars into the Remission Account up until 3:00 PM and the money will be transferred overnight to my BaNorte account and is available here the next day in pesos. The charge is minimal. It works just fine for me! - Paul Shortell


If this is Bed Rock Bob, Rocque made me some sandbags so he knows where to find them. Ask him. -- Jeanne

I would like to know if the road to OTRO LADO is open and passable ?? - Thanks, Chuck, 1wahoorv (-at-) -------------------- You mean the Todos Santos Otro Lado? Sure is, last time we checked...

I'm a MAC user and hope to be heading your way soon. As I'm reading about online bank transfers etc. and other communication lines in Baja, I'm wondering if there are any MAC users down there. If so, have you found that it presents any unique problems? Most businesses are set up for PCs and it's occasionally problematic even in the US. Any feedback would be appreciated. Thanks and Ola! -Rosemary
