New Movie Theater In La Paz - There's a new Movie Theater in La Paz that I highly recommend. It's located right behind Home Depot, next door to the new Soriana. It's called MiCine (MyTheater). Most movies are in English with Spanish subtitle (Note: if the movie ad says "Doblada" it means it'll be in Spanish). I was told that because there's only 5 movie auditoriums they plan on having more movie variety. The biggest news is that the tickets are only $30 pesos! This past Sunday my wife and I watched the movie "New Years Eve", very good by the way, enjoy.

The Purrrrfect Stocking Stuffers - We are too cute for words. We are a boy and girl and both of us are white with gorgeous blue eyes, if we do say so ourselves. Our foster mother has raised us from infancy - she bottle fed us for weeks after we were abandoned. We love her and she loves us but she has waaaay too many four-legged ones in her family. We have been to the doctor and had that little operation so there will be no babies in our future. Please take us home for the holidays. - Angelique, bakakitties [ -at- ] yahoo.com, 145-0250

Flying Fido And Morris Into Mexico, Courtesy Baja Pony Express - Useful Article from Baja Insider 12/12/11: (1) You will need a Original Health Certificate completed by a Vet,. The documentation should verify that the dog has received all its shots. Do Not Try To Use A Photocopy. Rabies Shot not over 1 year old. (yes in the states it is 3 years but not Mexico
Upon arriving at the airport, after clearing customs you will need to import the dog. This is pretty painless. They take your health certificate back to the office photocopy it and bring you the import papers with an official stamp. Hope that helps. Jim Hall

- (for pets older than 3 months) rabies vaccination history issued within 12 months before arrival [NOTE: Rule has changed since 2009. Now every 3 years - Editor]. If rabies vaccination history is not included, rabies vaccination certificate must be attached. - attestation that the pet is free from ECTO and ENDO parasites (or a deworming certificate). Further information can be found at: www.senasica.gob.mx ("Phytozoosanitary Inspection" and "When travelling, bring your pet").

Mexico recently changed the rabies policy. We flew into SJD In October and were asked to present health certificates for our dog and cat. They registered the animals and presented me with papers welcoming them into Mexico. The person who helped us also told me that the policy for rabies had changed in Mexico from a shot each year had changed to a shot every three years, just like in the USA.
