Car Rental Problems In Cabo Airport - My Hubby and I flew into Cabo Airport.Weds Dec 29th. We got in about 1:30PM. We had a car rental confirmed from Advantage. Apparently, outside the guys with radios call the van to come. We saw our van and it passed us by. We asked the guy with the radio to call them back. He called then said ,"They have no more cars". The men offered us a car from another company for 1000.00 US a week! Our reservation was for 120.00 US. After an hour and half waiting we called a cab to take us to the rental place. There were people at the counter who had only been there for 30 mins and had a car. What's up with that and any resolution for us? - Teresa Ellsworth, treebu1 [ - a t - ] gmail.com, Baja California Sur

Cultural Purpose Dinners at Cafe Todos Santos - We are happy to present a new program of food and entertainment at Cafe Todos Santos. It is a full calendar of dinners with a cultural purpose: the study and enjoyment of dishes with a different history, philosophy and cooked in different styles. The purpose is a journey through different worlds and different ways to prepare and cook, so that a dinner becomes not only fulfilling for the stomach, but also a pleasure for the eye, the nose and the taste buds. The program will last the whole winter season to March 2011. It will take place four nights a week and so divided:

Tuesdays: Meat Dishes
Wednesdays: Pasta
Thursdays: Vegetarian
Fridays: Seafood.
Each night will introduce dishes cooked in many different ways, using local products and transforming simple staple in culinary treasures. Exclusive does not mean expensive; the dinner includes a single dish, composed of two, three or more variations. A vegetarian night, for instance, could be dedicated to the discovery of different chilies, prepared and cooked in different styles. A "meat" night could highlight the use of skewer, to roast pigs, chicken, and ducks. A "fish" night could be dedicated to frying styles and a "pasta" night could include several types of pasta, mirroring the different character of Italian regions.

If the Mediterranean is considered the cradle of civilization, its cuisine, the real one, will be our guide. So, in the course of the nights, we could organize wine or olive oil tasting. Dinner will start at 18:00 to 20:30 and reservation is recommended, only 20 seats available. The cost will be of 150 Mex$, not including beverages, service and taxes. For reservations, contact Cafe Todos Santos - Angelo Dal Bon, angelodalbon [ - a t - ] gmail.com, 6121450274, Baja California Sur

Let us know if you find or place your pet so we can remove your ad -


Neighbor's Dog Is Missing Again - I have returned from my Thanksgiving travels to find my neighbors little Jack Russell mix has been missing since the day after we left. He disappeared once before and the day that my last post in the BWO came out he came home. If anyone has picked up this friendly cream and white intact male from the La Pastora area I would love to know if he is alive. He walks with me on the beach every day, and he is missed myself and his owner. - Sherri Herda, srherda [ - a t - ] gmail.com, 6121542160, Todos Santos

Found Puppies - A pair of adorable sibling pups followed us home on Dec 23. They appeared on Calle Las Brisas. Both are brown one lighter and the other with some black. They might be a couple of months old. We think they were abandoned as they don't want to leave. I can email a photo. Any suggestions about how to find a home for them would be welcomed. Thanks - Darryl, darrylb9 [ - a t - ] gmail.com, 612 117 0655, Todos Santos


Last Chance For Lady - "Lady" was posted several months ago when she was then known as "Paws". I took her under my wing, fed her and have earned her trust but she still needs some work and love. She is a really sweet dog & is looking good now--a survivor with one eye. I am not able to keep her and will have to take her to La Paz to the pound with a bag of dog food which will only keep her supplied for about a month. Hopefully, she will be adopted by then or else they will put her down. It saddens me that I cannot provide for her any longer and hope someone will step up to care for and love her. - Debora, pelimcintire [ - a t - ] yahoo.com, 612 118 3423, Pescadero


Still Looking For Jack - Male/fixed pitbull, reddish/tan, white on chest, scars on front left side, ears and tail long. Had a black and white nylon collar. Tall for a pit.

Has Anyone Seen Zapatilla? - If you are the fortunate one who has captured the heart of Zapatilla, a white Husky/German Sheperd with a coiled tail who has been missing 4 weeks from La Pastora beach would you please get in touch with me? She has many friends with whom she wanders off for weeks at a time but none of the usual suspects know of her whereabouts. Please let me so that I can sleep soundly knowing she is in your tender loving care. Her fellow pack , equine herd and yours truly are concerned and miss her. Thank you! - Euva Anderson, horsejunkies [ - a t - ] hotmail.com, 044 624 14 16881, Todos Santos
