Rock Art Walks Resuming! - Friday, November 15, 2013, 12:30 PM-5:30 PM. Please join us for a walk through history as we explore the rock art paintings left behind by the now-extinct Guaycura and Pericu tribes who once lived and thrived in Baja California Sur. A local anthropologist who just recently published a book on his rock art findings in BCS will lead the trip, sharing with us one of his favorite sites on a lovely old working ranch along the former Camino de las Misiones. There is about 90 minutes of moderate walking over uneven terrain that features gentle up and downhill gradients. The trip includes roundtrip Todos Santos/ranch transportation,anthropologist-lead walk and discussion, contribution to anthropologist's work, and donation to the ranch owner.

A Doctor Explains: What The Affordable Care Act Means For Expats - The following article was submitted by By Timothy J. Garrett, MD, MBA:
October 1, 2013, saw the beginning of the enrollment period for health coverage under the Affordable Care Act (ACA). Along with the news about glitches with the health care website came lots of questions for expats: Do expats have to enroll? Will there be penalties for expats who do not enroll? Even if expats are not required to enroll, is there a benefit to enrolling? Here are three things that every expat should know in regards to the ACA:
todoslarry [- at -] gmail.com
- U.S. citizens who are bona fide residents of a foreign country are not required to have health insurance as mandated by the ACA. In general, U.S. citizens living outside of the United States for at least 330 days in a given year and who meet the IRS requirements to be a bona fide resident of another country are exempt from the ACA. (You’ll find the full list of requirements for bona fide residence in Form 2555 on the IRS website.)
- It could make sense for you to have minimum essential coverage under the ACA even if you are a bona fide resident of another country. Many expats are fortunate to live in an area with high-quality, affordable, and easily accessible health care. Those who are bona fide residents don’t have to pay for health coverage in the U.S. But even if you are a bona fide resident of a foreign country, having extra cover in the U.S. could help you to secure your own peace of mind.
- If, for any reason, you think that you or your family might have health issues that will require treatment in the United States, it’s worth thinking about purchasing a low-premium/high-deductible U.S. plan that’s coupled with a medical evacuation policy. There are several medical evacuation companies that will provide evacuation from almost any location in the world to the U.S. hospital of your choice for a reasonable membership fee.
Baja Biscuits At Cañada Del Diablo - We will be at Cañada del Diablo THIS Saturday, from 9 am to 1 pm. Come early for our breakfast sandwich, made with our homemade breakfast sausage. Also, we will have apple fritters, and Linda's walnut cinnamon rolls. For lunch, we will have grilled sausage sandwiches and smoked BBQ pork sandwiches--each with a side of that wonderful, creamy coleslaw. You can get frozen sausage to take home to make in your own recipes. - Ace Shawver, aceandlinda [- at -] yahoo.com, (612) 149-3572

Be Careful Of The Police - For the very first time in Todos Santos, I was stopped twice today by police. They are newly arrived police and the first one tried to make me pay him $100 usd. I told him that was fine, let's go to the police station. He said he didn't have time so he would find me later at my house and he wanted to know where I live. I told him I would just call the Comandante and work payment out with him and the guy backed off.
The second time was when I was literally rolling to a speed bump and the cop pointed his finger and told me to pull over and said I was driving too fast. I do drive fast sometimes but this was not one of them. I picked up my phone and told him I would call the Comandante and tell him that I would be at the police station to pay the fine. The guy let me go. Then talking to a couple of tourists here they told me that they got hit up for $500 pesos and that the cop wanted $100 usd. Remember people - Do Not Pay The Cops. Be adamant that you will pay any fine at the police station and tell them you want the ticket written right then. - Name Withheld by Request, Todos Santos
