  1. NEW CAFE IN SAN JUAN COSALA OPENS SEPT. 30. ACROSS FROM THE PLAZA IN TOWN ON PORFIRIO DIAZ Volunteers from the Token Store in San Juan Cosala have been working for months with a group of five village ladies. Nora, Jonnie, and Nancy have helped these women learn how to start a business, how to keep records, how to create a budget, and how to bake foods for the Expat community. A large part of of start-up money was from a grant provided by Saint Andrews Church. The ladies have also been making and selling items to add to the fund. The ladies are very excited to announce that Cafe La Canasta will host an Open House on September 30, from 3:00-5:00 PM. Guests will be asked to taste and rate muffins to determine which ones the cafe will offer. Please join us to meet these five delightful ladies and be entertained by the well-known musician, Paul Brier. The cafe will open the following Thursday and will also serve french-pressed coffee, juices, and breakfast burritos.
  2. Much safer here than in Houston.
  3. I tried the new Indian food restaurant in the food court of Centro Laguna yesterday. Loved it! He let me taste all the curry sauces to see which ones I liked. Had the chicken curry and butter chicken, both delicious. Served with basmati rice and condiments help yourself to the raita and chutney. I even liked the roti which was more like Pakastani roti I get in Houson. Of course I used the sauce from the curries to flavor my rice and dip the roti and used a fair amount of raita along with the curry sauces to cover my rice and dip the roti. I had the mango laasi and loved that too. Definitely planning to go back.
  4. THESE CATS AND KITTENS NEED A CHANCE! Since Anita's Animals will be closing soon, there are 42 Cats and Kittens who will have to be euthanized if we cannot find homes for them. The only shelter here at Lakeside that offers Cats is already full and there are no available shelters in Guad for them. Some of these animals have been vaccinated and are either neutered or spayed. if you would like to have a Purrfect Pet and can help, please visit Anita's Animals in the Racquet Club between 9 am and 1 pm. Just drive in the entrance and look for the sign before you get to the gate. Thank You!!! Any questions, please call (387) 761-0500 or 333 400 3327.
