It looks like ground zero where the swine flu has started is a US company who moved some operations to Mexico to avoid US environmental regulations. Looks like the flu will have far reaching affects beyond the actual virus. Check out this article http://www.narconews.com/Issue57/article3512.html

I live in Mexico City, and what I saw in the news today was that there were around 60 people dead, but of those 60 only 20 are directly linked to influenza. I think I read that there were just over 1000 cases confirmed here in Mexico City.
Of course, that is probably not accurate, due to the fact that lots of people don’t go to the doctor. I had to go out today, and went in the Metro, which is not usually too crowded on Saturday, and… Continue

Is the Press biased when it comes to reporting about dangers in Mexico? In our opinion, yes, it is. There is no doubt that Mexico is having problems right now, but does that really affect the average student, tourist or investor?
Recently there were shootings during Mardi Gras in New Orleans that were not widely reported in the US media. Yet CNN on the same day ran a report of three drug dealers killed in Mexico. After that, more warnings… Continue

It’s 3:53 a.m. here at the beach in La Paz.
I look at the city lights across the bay, and at this hour when the city sleeps, it doesn’t look like there are any less lights. Yet I know there has to be fewer lights. People are sleeping. They don’t all sleep with their lights on. Not all of the citizens of La Paz are writing in their blogs at almost 4:00 a.m. I wonder if an engineer could measure this? Maybe if I had a really high-powered night… Continue

The international accounting firm, Deloitte, recently gave a seminar to AMPI agents on the subject of renting Mexican properties and the reporting of income.
For years, some owners of homes and condos in Mexico, both foreigner and national alike, have not reported their rental income. The law has become more formal over the years and the procedures the country has now to seek and find those not reporting income, has become more strict and encompassing.
What property applies to the… Continue
I recently returned from a week in Mazatlan, and I felt absolutely NO tension there whatsoever. Friendly as always, the Mexican people made me feel appreciated and watched over. I went everywhere - Old Mazatlan colonia, the new Marina, walked the Malecon, all over the "golden zone" (translated = tourist area), restaurants, the beach, shopping, even real estate open houses. I accidentally attended a funeral in the main cathedral, got from point A to point B by open air "pulmonia" (little… Continue
The Apostille – Making a Document Legal for Use in Mexico
By Linda Neil
In Mexico, the ONLY authority permitted to draft a deed transferring real property or an interest in real property (such as the fideicomiso) is the Mexican Notary Public. This person is different from a Notary Public in the United States where a simple exam, bond, and a rubber stamp can make a Notary Public out of most people.
Sunrise at the oasis…put your camel to bed…oops wrong song! How about It’s just another tequila sunrise? Or in non-singing mode, we have a Pacific marine layer that has rolled in. Actually it was here yesterday. The air had a frosty look, but was actually a gentle, warm, air mass, balmy I guess you would say. This morning,as I write, the colors are changing fast. First a soft billowy grey, the cloud layer just grazing the peaks of the mountains behind… Continue
