Baja Bell Hello Everybody !!! Just want to
let you know that Baja Bell is in town !!! Who is Baja Bell? It’s both an
Internet Café (2 coconuts per hour) and a DSL Internet Provider for your home,
covering certain areas in Pescadero that has no phone service (first month ONLY
25 coconuts). Where’s it located? On Rt. 19, Km 62, just 2 blocks North of
Pescadero’s Pemex, in Pescadero Centro Comercial, at the same location as
Paraiso California Realty (www.paraisocalifornia.com).
How can we get more info? Go to www.bajabell.com, email us at info (-at-) bajabell.com , stop by the office, or
call us at 612-130-3050, or 044-612-132-4710. Imagine surfing the net while
you’re sitting on the beach…. Baja Bell bringing technology to Paradise
Dr. Aflonso Cardenas
below. Bob Cleaves was in town for a few days and learned that Dr. Alfonso is
back in town. He needs help. Most of you remember Dr. Alfonso from a few years
back...He certainly helped Paul and me, and others in Town. If you recall, he
gave free services to all the poor Mexicans in Todos Santos until some of the
powers here felt that their businesses were suffering.
If you have
any suggestions or ideas, please let us know! Many thanks! And, by the way, if
you could send this on to others in our community who have email addresses, I
would appreciate your doing so!

am sending a copy of this message to people in Todos Santos who I believe
would be very interested in finding a way to help Alfonso establish a 24/7
emergency surgical facility in Todos Santos. Alfonso is a very accomplished
surgeon and I am distressed to learn that his medical partner has refused to
work to establish a facility that would be available around the clock to
anyone in the community in need of emergency help.
The Centro de Salud
does not offer this type of medical help nor, I am told, do any of the other
doctors in Todos Santos. I could be mistaken, but I think that Alfonso simply
does not want to charge for his services and from my experience one must
virtually force him to accept a fee for his services. I guess he might need a
business manager since he is inclined to give his medical help to anyone and
Maybe you could
organize a function where the movers and shakers in Todos Santos can talk
about simple things such as where Alfonso might live and have a small surgical
office. All he needs is a place to live and work at. A small home or office in
town, a combination office and apartment? Anyway, this is my suggestion. It
would be in the very best interest of all ex-pats as well as local Mexicans to
have Alfonso's skill available on a 24 hour, seven day a week basis. - BOB

Google Earth Thought your readers would be
interested that Google has updated the satellite views of TS and Pescadero to
now be high resolution. As a result, on Google Earth you can now identify
individual houses and even major trees. - Vic Kirby, vickirby (-at-) telusplanet.net
for that, Vic! For our earthbound Readers who may not have Google Earth, here's a shot of Todos Santos
from about 2 1/2 miles overhead (couldn't leave out the Otro Lado, now
could we?). Can you find your house?:
And let's not forget Pescadero. Everybody go
outside, look up, smile and wave!
