ENT Doctor? - Does anyone know of an Ent Doctor also called an Otolaryngologist(English)or Otorrinolarigologist(Spanish)in either La Paz or Los Cabos? Thank you. - Marc Viglione, todossantos3 [-at-] yahoo.com, Todos Santos


La Paz Police Checkpoint in Todos Santos? - Saturday, the 17th, guests of ours were stopped by La Paz Police in front of Baja Tile (Horizonte); hassled, and ultimately forced to pay a 700 peso fine, on-the-spot. Additionally, my wife and I were stopped at the same place the previous weekend. Some basic info: the offense committed by my friend was a one year, out-of-date Oregon state driver's license. The car had up-to-date Oregon plates. (His rational: Keep my current driver's license at home, cause their gonna take it from me!). This is exactly what many of us do with our driver's license. My friends were given the choice of "paying on-the-spot" or being taken to the La Paz Police Station on Colosio. What are the La Paz Police doing in front of Baja Tile? - Christopher, owsky [-at-] aol.com, Todos Santos

Palmas Cafe - I would just like to say what a yummy sandwich I had today at the Palmas Cafe. They used to be located across the street from Banorte but now are in their new location half a block down Colegio Militar from Lizarraga, on the other side of the street, in a small, new building with a brick front. I had a grilled chicken breast sandwich made on homemade whole wheat roll with cheese, avocado, lettuce and tomatoes. Also served with good potato salad and pickles. All for 60 pesos. Their sandwich menu is not very big but it sure was good. While you're there, pick up a delish cinnamon roll for 20 pesos. - Name Omitted by Request
