Re: Agua Vale Mas Que Oro - If we want to do something about our environment, let's also deal with the very real issue of the burning of the dump (which we all contribute to - plastics, tires, plastics, batteries, and more plastics) - all being burned at a low temperature and going straight up into our air. And while we're at it perhaps we could do something about all the plastic bottles I find everywhere I walk! If we want to protect tourism let's clean up our own act. - Michael Morel, MichaelMorel1973 [ -at- ] hotmail.com, 612.14.77.300

Lost Dog - Please help us find our dog! There was an accident on Sunday, January 3rd around 2 pm at KM 224 1/2 on highway 1, 55 km north of the Bahia Los Angeles turn off at Punta Prieta. Our dog was inside the van that rolled and when he got out he ran off into the desert and we were unable to find him after searching hours and days.
His name is "Pickle". He is a tan lab/great dane mix. He is very Friendly, but I'm sure very scared. He was wearing a collar with a name tag that had our numbers on it; both U.S. and Mexico. He was last seen by a witness, running west into the desert at km 224 1/2.

Here’s A Book With Some Answers - “Living La Vida Loca: When the Dream of a Life in Mexico Becomes Reality” is my new book about the internal experience of life as a foreign resident in Mexico, available for download at the web site below.The book looks at what drives people to come here, what surprises they found, how they cope with and grow from the experience, how reality compares to their expectations, and what they would do differently knowing what they do now.
