LA PAZ UPDATE SEPTEMBER 2007

Hóla

Not a lot happening this summer in La Paz.  All of the developments are moving along with their construction work.  From my office I can see the condos going up at Paraiso del Mar on El Mogote.  Also the golf course work should begin this month and be finished in seven months or so.

The old La Posada hotel is being torn down and will be replaced with high end condos,restaurants etc.  Condo prices will start around the $300,000 range and up to a million dollars for a penthouse unit.

We had a couple light showers last week and a little rain in some areas last night.  We may get more rain tonight and tomorrow from the approaching storm.  It may turn into a hurricane tonight.  We are now under hurricane warnings for Southern Baja.

Saturday we were all shook up by 3 earthquakes.  The first and strongest was a 6.3.  It shook my office pretty hard and lasted a few seconds.  I haven’t heard of any major damage.  The lady in the gift shop next door said that it moved her heavy display cases but only a couple things fell off shelves and broke.

The first couple blocks of 16 de Septiembre street from the Malecon is all torn up for repairs and new sewer lines.  It should be nice when it is finished.

We have a major holiday coming up on the 16th which is Mexico’s Independance Day.  I hope that you all had an enjoyable Labor Day weekend.

That’s about all the shakin news from here this month.
