Help Needed For The Hogar. - The Hogar del Niño is located north of Todos Santos just off the highway before the Pemex on a mini ranch. This home (some refer to as an orphanage) is caring for boys and girls placed by DIF who need protective care. The home is locally run and NOT funded by the government. Joel and Alicia Hernandez rely solely on donations from the community to feed and house the twenty two children in their care, along with a staff of volunteers.

Currently the hogar needs money for food and shoes for the kids. Please consider giving to this home not only now but on a regular basis. Donations can soon be made on-line through their web site www.hogardelnino.org.mx but currently may be made at the Banorte Bank. The acct. # is: 0615296470. If you would like to provide meals, contact Lisa Welch. Her email is: lwelsch [- a t -] cbriveras.com.

ATM Alert - Courtesy Baja Pony Express - This afternoon my husband Stephen and I went to the Banamex ATM machine to withdraw money. As my husband entered the ATM room a Mexican man came in behind him. Stephen offered to let the man go first, but the man stepped back. The ATM machine did not work, it did not give the money and the transaction could not be cancelled. The man stepped up, too close, and asked if Stephen wanted dollars or pesos. As Stephen removed his ATM card from the machine, the man quickly slid his card into the machine. Stephen knew immediately that somehow he had been ripped off. As soon as we got home, we checked our online information and $867 had been withdrawn at the Banamex ATM in Los Barriles. The transaction has been reported to the fraud unit of our bank, and we are reporting this to the manager of Banamex. Beware! Holly Burgin - burgin.holly [- a t -] gmail.com, Los Barriles

Rhoda Jacobs, certified T'ai Chi Foundation instructor since 1974, has invited Daniela Hauptmann as a guest instructor for this program.

Mexico Travel Warning In Perspective - Courtesy Baja Insider - "April 22, 2011 The US Department of State has renewed the Travel Warning for Mexico. The travel warning is very carefully worded and we recommend you read the document with equal care. It is important to note that despite with glaring headlines in the US decry, the travel statement has not changed significantly since being upgraded to a travel warning in April of 2010."

May 10 / 11th - Arizona/California Via Baja Ferry - 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
