Real EstateIn a message dated 11/15/2004 3:45:56 PM GMT Standard Time, hslanham@aol.com writes:
Barb, We live in Altos del Maria. It is an hour and a half, more but not much less depending on traffic and the weather. In the start up stages of whatever you do here, you will have to go to the City once or twice a week. We usually go to Coronado about once a week as well for groceries and hardware and the restaurants.

In case you need a good mechanic...

Cars & TransportationI can highly recommend my personal mechanic that I've been using for years. His name is Alvaro, and his cell phone number is 593-8844. Alvaro is hardworking, honest, and bilingual. His primary shopp is the AATC on Via Brazil (across the street from the Sport Tek gym). He also has a minivan that he's converted into a mobile car repair shop, and he will come to you and get you running if you should break down on the road. Just tell him "Mr. Don" sent you, and he'll take good care of you.
