Hi All,


Please see 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!


Best! Mary Shortell mshortell (-at-)


Dear Mary:


I 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 everyone.


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-)


Thanks 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!
