I hoping some of you can help me in my quest. I am working with a group of clients in California, who have asked me to supply them with testimonials from individuals (that I "do not know personally") that can testify and comment on the reality of living in Mexico, the safety issues especially. If you have a minute, can you drop me a note at email@example.com
I know we all face this issue, and we have all… Continue

Got a scolding this morning from George and others emailed me as well..sorry for not writing more...the truth is we are just very busy, which is a good thing, but no excuse for not staying in touch.
La Paz is great! Winter weather, cool in the mornings and evenings, but sunny and warm in the day...winter winds bring out the wind surfers and kite surfers, boarding or whatever you call them! It looks like fun...I will take their word for it.
La Paz real estate is picking up,… Continue

Thanks George for all your hard work and continued efforts to upgrade the site...you are up earlier than I am...or maybe you just do not sleep.
The expat owned businesses group is a great idea! We can communicate with one another on just business issues, and those thinking of opening a business can get good first hand information and assistance.
As always..great job. rk

I wanted to take a minute to recommend one of the new members to mms. Lucy Garcia Robles joined last week. This person is a great asset to the Development community in Mexico. She has a warm and charming spirit, a very positive outlook, and a strong work ethic. Her project will be successful, I recommend you drop her a line and hear her story and check out her project in Chapala.

La Paz 8:24.
It's over! We dodged a bullet on that one! City workers are out in full force this morning, cleaning the Malecon, and the debris from the roads.
A couple of signs came down, but no major damage, skies were sunny at 7.00, but are a little cloudy, sun breaking through from time to time. There is a breeze blowing, so everything is drying out quickly. Reports from Todos Santos are good, and the people I spoke to in Cabo are good.
In about three days,… Continue

La Paz 4.37
Mostly a quiet night. Winds picked up, not really bad, but you could not fly a kite! Cat didn't like it much!
It seems like the worst has passed, the wind will probably be here until noon. Schools are closed of course, but there has not been much rain, so downtown should be fine, have not been out yet..more later.

La Paz 9:05
Actually it is not bad, it rained from 4.30 to 6.30, torrents of rain, but nothing for the last three hours, and the wind is mild, no power losses, no sirens.
The CFE and other emergency teams were out early and in full force in La Paz, and there were many people helping with drainage problems. I commend the city of La Paz for being on the ball and doing what they can early to eliminate flooding where possible, early evac of those in low lying… Continue

Now 12 noon in La Paz, no wind, we had a downpour this morning, streets are flooded, most businesses are closing. Usual line ups at the gas station as people do final preparations.
Power is still on, phone service is good. The next few hours will tell us more, but for now we are all fine.

Special thanks to George Puckett for his continued hard work and great site! In case I forgot, thank you for the feature position! I met some new friends who will be joining us.
La Paz. 5.37. Just finished raining.
We are all getting ready for a little wind and rain, and have provisions for an army!
Generator is ready in case we loose power, and the fridge is stocked. If you are in the area and are getting ready for Jimena, remember to help your neighbor!… Continue

Great Race this weekend!! We pulled off a second and a fourth in Class 8. Bert Tjeenk flew in all the way from Germany to drive the 806 Class 8 Ford Explorer. We lost had some technical difficulties and Stanley Burns flew past us 10 minutes from the finish line...good for him...I hope we are still racing at 73 years of age!
We were there for Pit Support and chasing for Andrea Tomba Racing. Andrea is a well known driver and he and his team have been in the sport for 15 years! Always a… Continue

People are passionate about green now, excited to be doing something to help us all consume a little less. It is not… Continue

Green building is alive and well and living in La Paz!
The question is this...
Is it truly Green, or a shade of Green, or does it matter? The debate will go on for a long time, carbon footprint. New energy efficient car vs older well maintained car. Solar is Green, but solar energy storage is not necessarily green. etc.
Whatever your opinion on that subject, one thing for sure, green building is not 'revolutionary, it is evolutionary' and that is a good thing.… Continue
