Tracy Durland Concert Is Cancelled - I am so sorry to have to cancel the concert titled Solamente Una Vez which was to have taken place this coming Saturday at Cafelix and which would have included the wonderful accompaniment of Dave Dahlgren who will only be in Todos Santos for a week. We have had a death in the family and are in the US at the moment. Hopefully, there will be another opportunity with Dave next year. I promise to reschedule another solo bi-cultural music experience in March. Look for further notice. With deep regret, Tracy - Tracy Durland, mazytronk [ -a t- ] hotmail.com, 612 154 4729, Todos Santos


Environmental Festival 2011: Conchalito (Courtesy La Paz Gringos) - The mangrove area between La Posada and Hotel Grand Plaza [in La Paz] used to be a burial, ceremony center for the indigenous groups before the Spanish arrived. During the last years, many of us have seen that area being turned into a residential area. Despite the importance of its conservation because of the amount of wildlife still living there, there isnt any official denomination to protect what's left of it.

Conciencia A.C. a non profit organization that has worked in La Paz for the last 3-4 years is organizing a festival to raise awareness about the importance of that area and to stop further building (not the areas that are already under construction, but the small mangrove area that is still left) and protect it as "patrimonio del estado"

This festival started as something small but due to the interest of people and some other NGOs, they will be holding a large festival and have invited different artists. Some of the activities include: Birdwatching, trekking, live music, workshops, comediants, collect of signatures on the surrounding neighborhoods by volunteers, cleaning of the area and of course, many NGOs working in La PAz, will have their stand and will present their projects and it will be a good opportunity to see what's going on in our city.

March 6th 2011 at 10 am in the mangroves, if you are interested in joining the festival with a stand to present a project, or just to ask for more information, you can just email them to: concienciamexico [ -a t- ] gmail.com. Thanks, - Maggie

Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain (Courtesy Baja Pony Express) - Back by popular demand... Russ Hyslop has agreed to offer his Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain Class again! Students who announced at previous classes that they couldn't even draw a stick figure have been amazed when they discovered their artistic talent AND that it was fun as well! You probably met some of them at the recent East Cape Artists Studio Tour. Registration for the series of eleven classes will be held on Monday, February 28 at 10:00 am at the Club House in the Colina del Sol subdivision north of the San Bartolo Arroyo. Classes will be held on Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 10-11:30am through the month of March. The cost of the class will be $600 pesos or $50.00 USD which includes the cost of materials. Proceeds from the class will be a donation to the East Cape Asociacion de Artes and will go to support the Art Classes for Students at the Escuela Primaria in Los Barriles. Interested? Email Russ at irworn32 [ -a t- ] yahoo.com to pre-register or ask questions.


Internet Plan? - We have the telcel internet device but this is costly for heavy internet use. Is there a plan out there with a flat monthly fee for unlimited use? I'm in the Pescadero area. Thanks - , bradgeisler.dc [ -a t- ] gmail.com


"Sticker Shock" (Courtesy La Paz Gringos) - To whomever stole our 2011 registration sticker off our 2005 Toyota pick-up, be aware that we will be checking every California plated vehicle that we come across and if we find our sticker on your vehicle, the theft will be reported to the Mexican Police as well as the California DMV.

(Reply) We don't put our stickers on our license plates because people can steal the sticker. Better to leave the sticker with your registration in your glove box. We have only been pulled over once, several years ago and showed the police our current sticker with our registration. The policeman (on the quad) politely asked us why we did not install the sticker on the plate and we explained that we did not want it stolen and if you just ask us we will gladly show it to you. He thought about it for a few seconds and said "Have a Nice Day" This practice will save you time and effort looking for yours. Best regards - Greg and Laura



A Silent Call For Help - Jose Catarino is 16 years old and deaf and mute. His major problem at this time comes from complications from a colostomy (exterior bag holding feces and urine). The doctors are hoping to reverse this procedure in order for him to have a more normal childhood. Our community can make a difference in the welfare of this chid by contributing a small donation to this urgent situation. Donations can be taken at our activity center Buenos Sueños. Thank you all. - Diamond Moran, diamondmoran [ -a t- ] yahoo.com

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

A lifelong sailor, Les and his partner Marcia Stromsmoe, sailed from Victoria to Mexico, the South Pacific, New Zealand and Australia. In 2001, while en route home, they were brutally attacked in Papua New Guinea.

He and Marcia now live in Victoria and Todos Santos where he continues to run and make music. He hopes his story will inspire those who suffer from a brain injury and those who live with them.
