Today on the street, a friend commented that I should explain what happened with Sueno Tropical. So, quoted from the October 2006 issue of El Calendario:
Also missing in action is Sueño Tropical. Ross and Claudia have retired to enjoy the good life after many years of hard work “down on the farm.” The palo de arco shack that served as their tienda in Pescadero has been torn down and there are no known plans for a new one. Autumn, winter and spring just won’t be the same without all those fresh fruits, herbs and veggies that we all took for granted.
There are rumors that someone really wants to open an organic market here in town, but so far nothing.
Pizza My Heart pizzaria closed before it ever opened. Apparently the owner got in over his head. However, supposedly other pizza options are still in the works. We do have a new restaurant on Highway 19 at the south end of town, Los Almuerzos. It’s in the building that Carmen Priede Schubert owns, the same one that once sported signage reading “Vegitarian Real Estate.”
Finally, the emergency phone number that we have been publishing in El Calendario for over a year goes unanswered when called. This was the one number to call to reach police, fire and medical help. Another friend says she was told to use the 066 number (like 911 in the US) but this connects you to emergency assistance in La Paz. Seems like there should be a number here in Todos Santos. When we find it, we will be sure to let you know what it is.
The weather has warmed up over the last few days. Nights are still below 70 but not as cool as they were and the days are hot in the sun. Sadly, the ocean has been mostly flat lately too. Except at Los Cerritos. Where are those northwest swells?
