Policia In San Jose (Reports Courtesy Baja Pony Express)

My wife and I were stopped by Federales on the toll road between SJD and the airport last week. When we were pulled over there were already two others who had been stopped and a third after us. Each was a gringo with American plates or a rental car. They told me that I was driving 5 km over the speed limit and that I could either pay $US60 on the spot or go to the station and pay $120. They wanted to see my driver's license (a photocopy was not good enough), registration and insurance. They asked me to get out of the car and walk down the street to the patrol car where they asked if I had ever gone to court in the US for drunken driving, speeding or drugs. They would not allow my wife to come with me and told her to stay in the car but were very polite and gentlemanly to her. They told me that they would check my US records on their laptop computer that they had in the patrol car. I had some serious doubts that they were able to do that. I simply paid the $60 and left but just wanted to give everyone else the heads up that this was going on. Buzz Fedorka, bm [-at-] fedorka.com

------------------------

Just a word of caution, we made a pickup at the Old Terminal, there were 6 Federal Police in front and they were checking the dates on US car for registration violations. The officer saw me drive through with Oregon Plates and looked very close and on my next go-around pulled me to the curb. He asked for drivers license and wanted to see the registration. I had left the new stickers on my desk in Los Barriles. He had a recorded message on his cell phone in English, not real good English, telling me that I could not drive a vehicle in Mexico with out current registration. I called my wife on my cell phone as he stood there and asked her to bring the stickers to the Airport! I told him she was coming from Los Barriles, he wanted to know how long she would be, I told him an hour,.....He said she did not need to come and that I needed to put the new stickers on the car right away and that I could go.....I saw them later going through the parking lot looking for more violations....I called wife and she had not left the house so I saved her the trip.;;; Check your vehicle papers and make sure they are up to date! The Satellite Guy

------------------------

Be careful out there!! On the way back to LB from the airport today, 3 cars were being ticketed by the Federal Policia going south, and 2 others going north. The one going north passed me twice to catch someone else. 3 had Mexican plates, 1 had California plates, and one had no plates at all. The Federal Policia were four different cars. Looks like they may be cracking down on "over the speed limit", and are not just picking out Gringos. I put it on cruise control, and it took me 1 hour instead of 45 minutes, but I also didn't get stopped. Lorraine


Car Import - This may be old news. Every Saturday at the little restaurant in the park by the stoplight and kids play slides, in Todos Santos, you can get Mex plates for your car . In Los Barriles on Sunday in the Gloriets in front of the kindergarden hrs 11 to 6 tel 642 12 234 79 or 01 800 50 73 393 for requirements. English spoken - Robert


Swim With The Whale Sharks! - On Sunday, November 15 we will be taking a group to La Paz to swim with the whale sharks in the Sea of Cortez. The whale sharks don't visit every year and even when they do, they don't stay long, so this is a unique and wonderful opportunity to see the world's largest fish up close and personal. We only have room for 7 people so if you're interested, please call or email as soon as you can. - Sergio Jauregui, TSEcoAdventures [-at-] hotmail.com, www.tosea.net, 044-612-16-13208

Comments, Questions and Answers


Farmer's Market At La Canada Del Diablo - We would like to thank all who participated in opening weekend of La Canada del Diablo's Farmers' Market. What a turn out!!! Thanks to all who brought goods to sell, and those who came to buy. The market will be 9 am to 1 pm every Saturday through May. See you all next week. We at La Canada del Diablo, as always, thank you for your support. - Barbara Perkins, barbara_perkins [-at-] hotmail.com, 612-14-00069


Big Thank You To Baja Western Onion! - I posted my relocation guide for sale here and it went in days. Your reach to audiences in Baja is obviously extensive, if I ever want to sell my blog, I will post an ad here first. Kudos & thank you, making a donation now, Molly - Molly Mchugh, molly.vivalabaja [-at-] gmail.com, vivalabaja.blogspot.com, Baja California Sur


Translation At Gold Mine Meetings - I'm hoping that as part of the planning for the next meeting on the Gold Mine that a translator be present. This really seems like a community wide issue and while the last presentation was very professional, it was very difficult to follow for the Gringo portion of the audience. I feel everybody should be able to know about the future plans for the Gold Mine. Jeep - Jeep Hardinge, jeepsurfs2000 [-at-] yahoo.com, 612-100-7672, Todos Santos


Ultra-low Sulphur Diesel Fuel - Ultra-low sulphur diesel fuel was not widely available throughout the Baja last winter. '08 and newer diesels must use ULS fuel or serious engine damage can occur, apparently. I had heard that ULS diesel will be available Baja-wide (Baja-long?) by this past June. Can anyone verify this, and if it is not available everywhere, can anyone please fill me in where it can be found, and where it cannot be found? Jim Skelton, Vernon, B.C. - , Pescadero


Swimming With Sea Lions?? - I just read an ad from a local Eco Adventures company, soliciting signups for a day of swimming with sea lions, stating that "swimming with sea lion puppies is an incredible amount of fun". It may be, until a big protective sea lion momma gets hold of you. Jim Oswald, of the Marine Mammal Center, states "if you are swimming and see a sea lion, try to swim the other way". This was following a recent sea lion attack which can be viewed at the web site below. People need to be educated on the dangers in the ocean to avoid more deaths and injuries this year. Please think twice before playing with sea lion puppies. - Robert Quirk, rq [-at-] todossantosrentals.net, www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?f=/c/a/2006/11/15/BAGNTMD0DP1.DTL&hw=seal+bites&sn=002&sc=, 624-147-0326, Todos Santos

Pet Corner (Lost and Found pet articles will run for one week)


Anyone Going To Calgary? - Baja Dogs has 2 medium sized crates (with dogs) and 1 very tiny small carry on dog that need to get to Calgary as soon as possible. If you would like to make a difference in the lives of one or all of these precious animals you can, simply by aiding in the transport. We do all of the paperwork, arrange and pay for the dogs' transport costs, and have volunteers who will meet you at LAX etc if you need to transfer to another plane. Upon arrival in Calgary, someone will meet you and take the crate(s) from you when you land. Please help if you can. - Dhorea Ryon, BDLP [-at-] bajadogslapaz.org, www.bajadogslapaz.org, La Paz


More About Pet Travel - Here's our experience in La Paz regarding arriving with our big dog. Although the dog arrival system has been consistent for us for many years at the Los Cabos airport, which requires vaccine and rabies certifications, my husband just arrived to the La Paz airport and the requirements are definitely different. You will need to show proof that your pet is free of fleas, ticks and worms, a document which we did not have and is not routinely provided as a proof of health with our veterinarians. Of course our pets are free of fleas with the help of monthly treatments as well as the 20 degree nights in Sun Valley, Idaho assures it! Worms are treated routinely. We had to wait while the woman in charge summoned a vet, who when he arrived quoted the worry of Parvo and Rocky Mountain Tick Fever, which was the reason for the change in the document requirements. The airport official made us administer 4 pills to our dog for worms, they looked very much like Pepto Bismol, and only then was she allowed out of the crate to be pottied. All to say, it is a 'FREE of Worms, Ticks, Fleas' document which you need to arrive with, at least in La Paz. Buen suerte!

Beauty Spot - How Microdermabrasion Works: - Beauty Spot - How Microdermabrasion Works: In a nutshell, microdermabrasion is a skin resurfacing treatment that uses tools or products , in order to rejuvenate and restore natural glow to the skin. The micro dermabrasion procedure is simple and painless and (this is the best part) is equally effective to surgical procedures (laser skin resurfacing, dermal abrasion) and chemical peels (for superficial skin imperfections only). Microdermabrasion machines are made of a compressor and pump that mix gentle abrasion with suction to peel the outer skin layer (10-15 microns of skin, a layer so thin that you can't see it). The entire procedure, unlike dermabrasion or laser skin surgery, doesn't take more than 30-60 minutes. You can have it on the face, neck, chest, back, feet and hands.
Results After The First Treatment (first year) After the first professional microdermabrasion treatment (12 abrasions scheduled 1 week apart) you will notice an overall improvement in skin complexion while the red spots and scars from acne are definitely diminished. You follow with a maintenance Microderabrasion once a month afterward.Take advantage of the specials Mi Pueblo Magico is combining with a facial Micro current face lift and Micro-dermabration,$50.00usd both for the month of November.
