A Few Changes... - We're revising the format of the Baja Western Onion slightly to make it more readable and shorter (it was getting up to 15 printed pages each issue). One major change is that we've moved the list of Community Events and Meetings, Workshops and Community Services up to the Baja Western Onion Web Site.

We'll still include the Featured Events This Week here in each issue. We hope you'll find the new format easier to use, but let us know your comments, pro and con, by sending an Email to: Moderator [- a t -] BajaWesternOnion.com. -


News and Events, Questions and Answers


Petition To Protect the Baja Coastline - There is an online petition where you can sign up to express your opinion about protecting the coastline of Baja California. You can read the comments of others, and sign the online petition here: www.thepetitionsite.com/1/Preserve-Bajas-Coastline. The petition drive is targeted at Municipal, State, and Federal officials of the Mexican government, and is sponsored by the Las Tunas Ecological Organization, www.LTECO.org. -

Thanks. - Christine Douglas, cdoug1946 [- a t -] yahoo.com, U.S.510-658-6414; Mex 612-103-7021, Todos Santos

Saint Luke's Clinic - During a recent medical emergency I had occasion to use the services provided by our new clinic on Militar. The emergency was handled very professionally and avoided a trip to a hospital in La Paz or Cabo. The cost was extremely reasonable and a detailed bill is prepared suitable for submission to U.S. insurance companies. I think they are a wonderful new resource in our community. - mcnerneyatlast [- a t -] hotmail.com, Todos Santos

American Insurance In Mexico - Accidents and Emergencies Happen Every Day. Your medical insurance doesn´t cover you in Baja. Yes, your provider may be willing to reimburse you for your costs after months and piles of paperwork but you will pay the bill upfront. Did you know Medicare does not cover you outside of the US? No re-imbursement, period! Can You Really Afford To Take The Risk?

For as little as $75.00 a month you can use an insurance card instead of your credit card. Our Patriot program has you covered while traveling here in Southern Baja. Policies available for a month, 4 months or up to 2 years. Coverage within 24 hours of application. Only pay for the time you are here.

Don't Take The Risk. Emergencies Do Happen Every Day. Protect Your Vacation Dollars.

Arizona/California Via Baja Ferry May 10/11th - Traveling via the Baja Ferries from La Paz mid May 10/11th 2011 and looking for someone to caravan with through Nogales and points north California, Arizona. I speak fluent Spanish and would be happy to help translate if needed. Since the ferry arrives to Topolobampo late at night, there is the Hotel Marina and Restaurant for an over night and leave the next day for the border. About 120 miles south of the Nogales border crossing there is a junction that takes you to Mexico 3 and crosses the border at Mexacali and Tecate for people traveling to California and points northwest.

I travel with 2 nice dogs and stay at pet friendly motels/hotels. I do believe its pretty safe crossing any of the borders, it just always seems better safety in numbers. Please feel to e-mail or call me, treaturfeet [- a t -] yahoo.com, 624-141-0332 and let me know if this works with your plans to caravan back to Arizona or California via the Baja Ferries. - Sylvia, treaturfeet [- a t -] yahoo.com, 624-141-0332, Los Barriles
