Baja California (English: Lower California) is the northernmost state of Mexico. Before becoming a state in 1953, the area was known as the North Territory of Baja California. It has an area of 71,576 km² (about 27,600 sq mi, or 3.57% of the land mass of Mexico) and comprises the northern half of the Baja California Peninsula. The state is bordered on the west by the Pacific Ocean, on the east by Sonora, the U.S. State of Arizona, and the Sea of Cortez or Gulf of California, and on the south by Baja California Sur. Its northern limit is the U.S.-Mexico border, adjacent to the U.S. state of California. The state has a population of 2,844,469 (2005 census), much more than the sparsely populated Baja California Sur to the south. Over 75% of the population lives in the capital city, Mexicali, or in Tijuana. Both these cities are close to the U.S. border. Other important cities include Ensenada, San Felipe, and Playas de Rosarito and Tecate.

Ensenada is the thirdlargest city in the Mexican state of Baja California. It is located 116 km (about 70 miles) south of the San Diego/Tijuana border crossing. The city had a 2005 census population of 260,075. Ensenada is also the municipal seat of Ensenada Municipality, one of the five into which the state is divided. The city is home to immigrants from other parts of Mexico and from all around the world. Located in the Bahía de Todos Santos — an inlet of the Pacific Ocean — Ensenada is an important commercial and fishing port as well as a cruise ship stop. There is also a navy base, an army base and a military airfield, which functions as an airport of entry into Mexico. The city is backed by small mountain ranges. Due to its location on the Pacific Ocean and Mediterranean latitude, the weather tends to be mild year-round. Although the winter rain season is short and the area is prone to prolonged droughts, Ensenada sits in the heart of a wine country that is widely regarded as the best in Mexico. It is said that the first Vitis vinifera made it to the peninsula (specifically to the San Ignacio Mission) in 1703, when Jesuit Padre Juan de Ugarte planted the first vineyards there.

TIMELINE OF IMPORTANT DATES 1542, September 17th - Portuguese explorer Juan Rodríguez Cabrillo, sailing under the Spanish flag discovered Ensenada and named the area San Mateo. 1602 - Spanish captain and explorer Sebastián Vizcaíno rediscovered the area and renamed it Ensenada de Todos Los Santos 1821 – Mexico won it’s independence from Spain. 1848 – After the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo, Mexico sold a large portion of its northern territory for fifteen million, including California, to the United States making Baja California the northernmost frontier of the Mexico. 1882 May 15th - Ensenada became the capital of the Northern Territory. 1892 - Hussong’s Cantina is opened. 1973 – Mexico 1000 Rally sanctioning is handed over by Baja California governor Milton Castellanos to non-profit Mexican corporation Baja Sports Committee (BSC). BSC renamed the event to Baja Mil (Baja 1000) and moved it from Tijuana to Ensenada. 1975 - SCORE takes over operation of the Baja 1000. 1990s - Tuna embargo imposed Mexico caused much of the fishing fleet to relocate to the ports of Guaymas, Sonora, and Mazatlán. 2005 - The city had census population of 260,075

Puerto Peñasco is a small city of approximately 42,000 people in the northern state of Sonora, Mexico. Located on the shore of the Gulf of California (also known as the Sea of Cortéz), the town is known for its fishing and tourism industries. Puerto Peñasco is alternatively known among many of its English-speaking visitors as Rocky Point. It is a popular destination for tourists, particularly those from Arizona, for Peurto Penasco is nearest beach. Also a popular Spring Break destination with students from Arizona, New Mexico, and California. Puerto Peñasco is located in the ‘free zone’ where tourists are not required currently to obtain immigration papers in order to visit. However U.S. Border Patrol agents advise that as of January 31, 2008 a drivers license and a birth certificate will be required to re-enter the USA.

Cities with airports serving as points of entry include Hermosillo (the state capital), Ciudad Obregón, Nogales, Puerto Peñasco (aka “Rocky Point”) and Guaymas. Smaller towns popular with tourists that have airports include Navojoa and Álamos.

fire station. The donation from the Yuma, Arizona Fire Department filled the back of Gary’s vehicle and included fire fighting clothes and helmets, emergency beds (folding cots), stretchers, an emergency defibulator and other EMT equipment. Receiving the donation were acting Fire Chief, Martin Cambar, who has been with the department for 20 years, and fire fighters Francisco Rios, 7 years with the department and Christian Jesus Camacho Lion, who has been with the department for 5 years. The Lions Club would like to thank a Friend of the Lions, Dr Wayne Chiavacci from Yuma, for his efforts in getting the equipment donated and to Daniel Padilla from the Yuma Fire Department and Fire Chief, Jack Mc Arthur, for helping to facilitate the move to San Felipe. They all will continue to help us locate donations from other fire departments as well. The Club is actively looking for 2 fire trucks for this area: one for the local department and one for the South Camps. We are hoping for news from Phoenix, AZ soon. They may have 1 truck for us.

Getting a Passport By: Kevin Wynn

PASSPORTS ARE NOT REQUIRED (until June 2009)

DRIVERS LICENSE and BIRTH CERTIFICATE Required.

To travel out of the US, even just for a short visit to neighboring countries such as Canada or Mexico, you need a US passport for your identity and nationality to be verified at the border. A passport is a travel document which is recognized internationally. When traveling overseas, you must hold a valid US passport for you to leave the US and enter another country. A US passport can be obtained at any of the US regional passport agencies. There are currently thirteen of these regional passport agencies with around 9,000 passport acceptance facilities around the US and just one Gateway City Agency. These agencies are mainly for Americans needing a US passport in less than two weeks as they need to travel within two weeks or they need to apply for visas to visit a particular country. For these cases, an appointment is required. The US Department of State is the only government office which is authorized to issue and verify passports. Getting a US passport can be quick and easy. If it is your first time to obtain one, you have to apply in person at any of the passport acceptance facilities in your area. These facilities may be post offices, probate and state courts, federal courts, a few public libraries and even county or municipal offices. Before you go to a US passport acceptance facility, ensure that you bring with you a proof of your US citizenship,

13

two passport photographs, and any valid form of identification which must contain your photo, such as your driver’s license. If you just need to renew your passport, you can just mail your most recent US passport to the nearest passport acceptance facility in your area. Before you mail it, check if your passport is not damaged or even altered. Your most recent passport must also be issued in the past fifteen years, that you were sixteen years old or older when at the time of its issuance and that you still have the same name. Otherwise, you need to apply in person to renew your US passport. Obtaining a US Passport if you need to travel immediately The process of getting a passport takes four to six weeks starting at the time it was received by a passport acceptance facility. If you need your US passport at once due to your need to travel within the next two weeks or you need to obtain a visa to enter a foreign country, you can get one at any of the thirteen passport agencies in the US. These agencies are only open by appointment. You need to present a proof of your travel date or a proof that you need to get a foreign visa before you are given an appointment. Ensure that you call in advance to set an appointment. For your guidance, the regional passport agencies issuing US passports are located in Boston, Chicago, Colorado, Connecticut, Honolulu, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, New Orleans, New York, Philadelphia, San Francisco, Seattle, and Washington.

San Ignacio Mission / Misión de San Ignacio, Baja California Sur, Mexico. Tomás Castelazo

HISTORY / Historia

A series on the history of Northwest Mexico. Each month, historian and photographer Ron Saunders looks back at Baja California, Sonora and Northwest Mexico.

The History of San Felipe part. 2 LAST MONTH: The first written accounts of San Felipe appeared almost three hundred years ago, but its human history goes back much further. The Spaniard named Francisco de Ulloa...For over 100 years northern exploration was nearly impossible since it took all the missionaries’ energy just to secure their initial southern settlements. Consequently, investigation of the northern peninsula did not begin until the early 1700’s.

S

an Felipe Part 2: Thorough investigation of the northern peninsula did not begin until the early 1700’s. On May 15, 1721, Father Pedro de Ugarte sailed from Loreto carrying on board 13 Californians, 6 Europeans, and an English pilot, William Strafford. After a hazardous journey to the mouth of the Colorado, Ugarte’s voyage conducted a true geographical exploration of the gulf. The good padre has been given credit for naming all islands, harbors, bays, and ports of the northern gulf, including San Felipe Bay. Though Ugarte’s diary does not specifically mention San Phelipe de Jesus, it is speculated the party reached the bay on August 23rd, the church calendar day of St. Phillip. Thus, the bay was named in the saint’s honor. Twenty-five years later, Father Fernando Consag, a Jesuit missionary in Baja California, gave a thorough account of San Felipe Bay. Ordered by the Father-Provincial in 1746, Consag set out from Mission San Ignacio to explore possible mission sites northward to the Colorado River. The voyage was made at the expense of the missions, each one contributing what it could. Consag’s party provides the first description of San Felipe. His diary reads: “We next came to the Bay of San Phelipe de Jesus, the cape of which lies north and south from one another. That of the north terminates in some black mountains…and found it to afford a shelter against the north wind, even for large vessels…” This last observation had significant implications for San Felipe’s use as a port for supplying needed items to future missions located on Baja’s northern interior (continued in the March issue).

ooking for a unique Carnival (Carnaval in Spanish) experience close to home with a foreign feel? Search no further than your southern neighbor, México. Hosting an array of parades, parties, concerts, culinary festivals, cultural programs and beauty pageants, Mexican coastal cities offer Mardi Gras celebrations comparable to those in New Orleans, Rio de Janeiro or anywhere else in the world. Celebrated the week prior to Ash Wednesday and normally lasting a little less than a week, Carnival in Mexico has a long tradition dating back to the nineteenth century. Coming from the Latin word Carnavale, meaning “goodbye to the flesh,” Carnival refers to the week before Lent (Cuaresma), where carefree abandonment and indulgence are encouraged. Beauty Queens and Burning Moods, what else can you ask for? Kick-off begins with the burning of El Mal Humor (Bad Mood), in which an effigy, usually modeled after an unpopular politician of the day, is hung and burned, followed by a flurry of confetti and fireworks. This gives commencement to nearly a week of festivities in some of Mexico’s most popular coastal cities, including Ensenada, San Felipe, Puerto Penasco as well as Campeche, Mazatlan, Veracruz and Merida, just to name a few. Host cities celebrate all sorts of parades daily, depending on the local carnival’s theme, which differs from region to region. Parades display an array of floats decoratively inspired by Mexican scenery and normally featuring bright flowers and live entertainment. Some parades require an entrance fee, and visitors are advised to get tickets to the parade as soon as they can through the local tourist office or hotel.

Ensenada – La Fiesta de las Californias Jan 31 - Feb 5

The 90th year of Carnaval de Ensenada kick off with the traditional Burning of The Sea Humor on Thursday January 31st. 8:00PM. The Coronation Ceremony of the Royal Courts follows on Friday at 8:00PM with the first of three Carnivals kicking off Saturday February 2 at 2:00PM on Avenues Juarez, and Ruiz Blvd, Coastal. This is one of Ensenada’s biggest festivals of the year; five-days of celebration of the libido before the Catholic lent. Beginning the weekend before Lent, Carnaval is celebrated exuberantly with parades, floats and dancing in the streets.

San Felipe Mexican Mardi Gras Feb 01-05

San Felipe is the smallest of the cities in this list, but only by population not in their ability to fiesta like the big boys. In recent years, San Felipe locals and tourists have enjoyed one of San Felipe’s newer activities, Carnaval, or Mexican Mardi Gras as it is commonly referred. Last year, was a shadow of its former self with an apparent decline in enthusiasm, but the word is this year will bring a renewed vigor with lots of fun for all, with Carnaval and parades on Friday, Saturday and Monday and the usual fare of carnival rides, live music and dancing on the Malecon all week.

Mazatlan Carnival Feb 8-20

Mazatlan, home to the third-largest Carnival celebration in the world after those in New Orleans and Rio de Janeiro,

attracts more than 400,000 people each year. From February 8 to 20, thrill-seekers fill the malecón (oceanside promenade) running along downtown’s Ollas Altas beach, singing and dancing along roving mariachi bands. You can also catch regional Sinaloenses bands with lots of brass, as well as rock groups that set up along the way. Food lovers can enjoy open-air culinary festivals in the Zona Dorada (Golden Zone) and in Machado Plaza. Prominent dishes on hand include Mazatlán’s famous pescado zarandeado (barbecued fish), camarones con mango (mango shrimp) and marlín ahumado (smoked marlin). After enjoying some fresh seafood, Ollas Atlas port offers a unique offshore fireworks presentation February 17 representing a mock naval battle, in commemoration of Mazatlan’s 1864 victory over the French Navy.

Veracruz Carnival: Feb 13 - 21

Known for its AfroCaribbean-influenced culture, the port city of Veracruz on the Gulf of Mexico hosts the second-largest Carnival in the country. Paradegoers can expect to see Draculas, drag queens and women in sparkling dresses dancing to the infectious Caribbean/ Spanish rhythms along Miguel Avila Camacho Boulevard. Groups from neighboring villages dance in peacock and pheasant-feathered headdresses. A must during Carnival in Veracruz is dancing! Visitors should not miss the chance to dance at the zocalo, or central square. Salsa, cumbia, reggae and marimba are popular, but Jarochos (people from Veracruz) hold a special place in their hearts for the music and dance known as danzon, which first arrived from Cuba in 1880. For live music, visit the zocalo and/or the malecon on February 21, featuring Mexican artists. And when they aren’t dancing, there’s nothing like sitting on the banks of the Jamapa River in the nearby town of Boca del Rio and enjoying succulent grilled huachinango (red snapper), or a vuelve a la vida (Veracruz-style seafood cocktail, a well-known hangover remedy) at bargain prices.

Cozumel Carnival

Feb 14-21

Known as one of the most popular celebrations in the Mexican Caribbean, Cozumel has commemorated this preLenten celebration for nearly 100 years bringing Carnaval to life in an exciting explosion of color and music. Cozumel’s unique celebration includes a variety of costumed characters, such as Harlequins, rumba dancers, Spaniards, gypsy women, fairies, princesses, bullfighters and kings and queens that can be spotted during the week. This carnival is also considered a family-friendly version of the holiday and begins with the crowning of the emperor and empress as well as the king and queen of Carnaval. As the week progresses and the momentum builds, the island’s celebration continues with colorful parades, nightly street fairs and daily musical performances and dancing throughout the streets of downtown San Miguel.

Merida Carnival Feb 14-21

The Yucatan Peninsula’s capital city of Merida is one of the many cities that celebrate Carnival, with this year’s theme centered on “The Circus”. Since 1980, the people of the Yucatan celebrate the marching of “El Jacarandoso,” a popular character who was once king of the Carnival and annually displays the most colorful and amusing costume. On Monday during Carnival week, the ladies don hand-embroidered dresses and the gentlemen sparkling white guayaberas, the dress shirts typical of the region. Other important carnival destinations in Mexico include Ensenada, Baja California; Guaymas, along the Sea of Cortez in Sonora; Tepic, Nayarit; and Chamula, Chiapas, said to be one of the most indigenous festivals in the country.

Internationally well know artist makes San Felipe, B. C. home Words & Pictures Robin Waters

Luis Cogley showed such an interest in art as a small child, that his family started him in private art classes at the age of eight. Years later, he graduated from National School of Bella Artes in Buenos Aires, Argentina, his native country. After graduation, he made his home in Los Angeles, California for 20 years and for some time New Orleans was another place he called home. Many years ago, he began visiting San Felipe and for the last four years, he has divided his time between the Baja California and Santa Fe, New Mexico. In San Felipe, he has found the peace and tranquility essential for the creative process. “Life and art join in a dynamic partnership,” He says of the sea and mountain views outside his studio window. His style is fresh, new and innovative, with forms that are at times childlike in simplicity, a contemporary; whimsy sometimes mixed with impressionism and occasional surrealism. The palette he uses is bright with color, and the artist attributes his works unique appeal to the primitive need to laugh and have fun. Something he says, so many people do not experience in their daily lives. Luis’ conviction that art should evoke an immediate response from the viewer has led him to unite painting and sculpture into exciting new art forms. He expresses himself in art pieces that are more than wall décor, such as patio furniture, gates, garden benches, and even pianos, ordinary items that he has transformed into art as part of life. Many of these can be seen in collectors’ homes throughout the San Felipe area. Luis says his inspiration reflects his interpretation of the world around him. It comes from the color and shapes of nature, the energy of urban life, the beauty of women, the rhythm of music, bright flowers, a gnarled old tree, or the peace of an icon. He is currently represented in several galleries in Arizona, Louisiana, New Mexico, but his collectors come from all over the globe. Luis Cogley pieces can also be found in prestigious corporate locations: Chromacolor Inc. (Chicago, Ill), Kohler Co. (Penn.), Red Fish Restaurant (New Orleans, LA), Temple City Medical Clinic (Temple City, CA) to name a few. After creating art for so many years, he says, “It gives me satisfaction to share my feelings, my ideas, and my soul with many people from around the world. I love it when someone smiles and enjoys my works. I feel that my art escorts both adults and children into an uplifted dimension.” You can see his work locally in his home/studio in Las Playas de San Felipe. Look for the gallery sign [also one of his sculpture pieces], on the road to the airport, or call him for a studio tour at 686-577-2944. Luis will also be exhibiting at the Blues and Arts Fiesta in San Felipe on April 19th, 2008.

DINING GUIDE / Cenar la Guía

Food Ideas & Recipes Chocolate and wine pairing Chocolate and wine pairing is often seen as difficult and certainly some wines don’t go well with any type of chocolate. But when done correctly, wine and chocolate pairing can be a very rewarding experience. Of course, taste is a very subjective thing but if you don’t know where to start here are a few guidelines to great chocolate and wine pairings. One of the most common mistakes people make when pairing wine and chocolate is that they pick a wine which is too dry. It is generally a good idea to choose a wine which is at least as sweet (if not sweeter) than the chocolate you are serving it with. When pairing wine and chocolate, keep in mind that light, creamy flavored chocolates tend to pair best with light bodied wines. For strong flavored chocolates (like Gourmet Dark Chocolates or

Gourmet Chocolate Truffles), you should choose a full bodied wine. • • • • • • • •

Red Wines and Chocolate Pairings Cabernet Franc / Creamy Milk Chocolate Cabernet Sauvignon / Dark Chocolate Chianti / No Suggestion Merlot / Dark Chocolate, Milk Chocolate Pinot Noir / Dark Chocolate, Milk Chocolate Sangiovese / Dark Chocolate Zinfandel / Dark Chocolate

As shown, red wines often match well with dark chocolates but there are a couple of exceptions. Cabernet Franc with an extra creamy milk chocolate is a great wine and chocolate pairing. • • • •

White Wines and Chocolate Pairings Chardonnay / French Vanilla Chocolate Riesling / Milk Chocolate Sauvignon Blanc / Milk Chocolate

While white wines have a light body which goes very well with milk chocolates, most are too dry to

be served with chocolate. But there are some truly amazing combinations as well (like Chardonnay paired with French Vanilla.). • • • •

Dessert Wines and Chocolate Pairings Champagne & Sparkling Wine / Almost Any Chocolate Port / Dark Chocolate Sherry / Milk or White Chocolate

Dessert wines don’t really adhere to any “rules” about wine and chocolate pairings. Champagnes seem to go well with almost any type of chocolate, while Port and Sherry are on opposite ends of the chocolate spectrum. Wine and chocolate pairings are interesting if nothing else. Many people swear by this unusual combination while others insist that it “can not be done”. The only way to know for sure is to try it for yourself. Try them all, experiment. After all it’s Chocolate and Wine! Enjoy. For additional ideas and local chocolate: www. bajachocolatelovers.com

The tour includes developers datasheets with contact info and more.

If you have been considering the possibility of purchasing some Mexico Real Estate, whether it is in the form of land or in the form of property in Mexico , there are a few things you should definitely know before you decide to buy. First, if you buy Mexico real estate, no matter if it is vacant land, an apartment, a condo or a house, it can offer good monetary value in comparison to the prices of comparable land or buildings in the U.S. , Canada and Europe , as well as other countries around the globe. However, be sure to comparison shop among several of your favorite areas before buying because prices of Property in Mexico

have risen dramatically in some areas in the past few years, so be sure to properly assess the potential property’s value before you make the decision to buy anything. However, even with this recent rise in the prices of Property in Mexico , the overall jump has been offset by the lower overall land cost, as well as lower building and maintenance costs and lower taxes and utilities. So the bottom line is that if you are seriously interested in Mexico real estate, you should not be scared off by the many ‘horror stories’ that are circulating out there with regard to problems with purchasing Real Estate in Mexico. Instead, just simply be sure that, just as though you were thinking of purchasing property anywhere else in the world, you do your homework first and research the many options that are available in Mexico real estate before making the decision to buy a piece of land or a building. No matter what you are told to try to scare you off, the fact of the matter is that the overwhelming majority of all real estate purchases in Mexico go through quickly and easily without any legal hassles.

LOOKING FOR GREEN BUILDERS/INVESTORS

Home to many popular tourist destinations, such as Cancun, Acapulco, Puerto Vallarta and Baja California, Mexico is also fast becoming a popular destination for those looking to purchase a second home for vacation, retirement or investment. As more and more families seek to balance their hectic, high-stress lifestyles, having a second home is gaining appeal as a way to get away from it all, reduce stress, participate in recreational activities and enjoy more quality time together, and all while making a good investment for the future. Located north of Central America, Mexico is an exotic and affordable choice for second homes. At nearly three times the size of Texas, Mexico boasts over 5,500 miles of coastland. The country is graced with a temperate climate year round. Because real estate in domestic locales such as Arizona and Florida has become so expensive, vacationers and retirees are seeking out more affordable locations. Mexico is an attractive alternative due to its tropical climate, lower cost of living and welcoming attitude towards foreigners. Its affordable real estate allows U.S. investors to purchase a luxurious second home at prices 20% to 50% less than they would pay for a comparable property back home. And, as demand for these properties increases, owners can expect their investment in Mexico real estate to appreciate. A variety of quality properties is available for foreign investors seeking second homes in Mexico. Developers are meeting the surge in demand by constructing resortlike, master-planned communities brimming with luxurious amenities such as golf courses, infinity pools, full-service spas, state-of-the-art fitness centers, fine-dining restaurants and exciting entertainment venues. International buyers

appreciate that Mexico offers an attractive infrastructure similar to that of the U.S. It boasts good main roads, Internet access, cable television, good cell phone reception, and availability of many American-style products and services. New and improved airports and frequent flights to and from major U.S. cities, make Mexico easily accessible. Though Mexican law once prevented non-citizens from purchasing property within 31 miles of the coast, the government has introduced a system known as “fideicomiso” (fee-day-e-co-me-so), a titleholding trust that allows noncitizens to own property inside of the restricted zones. Therefore, many of the new vacation homes being developed and marketed to foreign investors are built near Mexico’s beautiful beaches. Financing for properties in Mexico has become easier to obtain as developers work in tandem with lending companies in Mexico to offer favorable loan packages to international buyers. In addition, U.S. lenders are starting to offer loans for properties in Mexico. Mexico is clearly worthy of consideration for those looking to own a second home that will provide years of enjoyment and also offer the potential for appreciation and profit in the future.

• ROSARITO ROSARITO BEACH BEACH • • ENSENADA ENSENADA •

Resort in Baja California, just 10mile drive from the border on the Tijuana-Ensenada strip known as the Gold Coast drew hundreds for their initial sales event. Now, two years after Donald Trump’s decision to lend his name to the lavish 3-tower coastal condo-hotel project it has yet to break ground. The developer received a land use permit in 2005 to build 526 units to on the property, but the developer has yet to receive a construction permit. Irongate, Trump’s Los Angeles-based partner said the project is moving forward and that they are finalizing documents to be presented to City Hall. Like other developments in northwest Mexico, Trump Ocean Resort has also felt the downturn due to the US market. However, construction on the first tower is set to start in March. According to Irongate, workers have been grading the land and installing utilities and the reason it’s not visible is it’s underground. Prices range from the mid-$300k for a studio on the lower floor to $2.5 million for a penthouse. Amenities will include four infinity-edge pools, tennis courts, a full-service day spa, five-star restaurants, bars and convention space. Approximately 40 percent of the second 26-story tower has sold.

Casablanca has also finished drilling their well and pump house, and are producing an abundance of sweet water. Playa San Rafael moves forward on infrastructure San Felipe-Playa San Rafael is picking up speed. They are currently installing their infrastructure and awarding contracts. “It is a good time to have our access blocked due to highway [Mexicali/San Felipe Mexico Highway 5] construction. Once there is easy access again, people can come see the progress that we’ve made”. Said Greg Anderson, Sales manager for SeaMexico Realty. During highway construction, Playa de Oro, the developers first completed and successful development one kilometer south, will have offices open for both developments while San Rafael’s access is restricted. San Rafael is the sister community of Playa de Oro voted “Best Development in San Felipe of 2007”!

Beachside dreams of Chocolate by Benjamin Eugene

Robert Shrader is a retired RV dealer turned Mexican Chocolatier. Bob used to sell RV’s, but now makes chocolate in San Felipe Baja California. He started baking as a hobby, but could never find the right recipe to produce the flavors he wanted, until he started playing with chocolate and voila! Bob’s wife Yolanda is responsible for all the packaging and wrapping of the chocolates, which is also an intricate part of the kitchen staff according to Bob. He makes the chocolate and Yolanda seems to do everything else. “She is the cocoa behind the chocolate,” says Bob. Baja Chocolate Lovers is the old European style of chocolate making and as delectable as these may be, Bob does not add sugar to any of their chocolates. “We use premium chocolates and only their natural ingredients” say Bob, “We flavor our chocolates using lacquers, herbs, oils, fruits, spices and of course a secret sauce.” This year they’ve added Chocolate Business Card (one ounce of chocolate sculpted with any

logo), also the half pound of Baja-in-a-Box or Creamy Amaretto Milk Chocolate sculpted into a half pound of Baja, sealed in a cellophane bag then cradled in a hand crafted presentation box with a gold bow. This makes a nice gift for the Baja lover, chocolate lover or both. “Gourmet dark chocolate has been proven in studies to actually be good for you!” Bob points out. He continues with a study from U.S.-FDA Research Department, showing gourmet dark chocolate has several essential nutrients such as iron, calcium and potassium. It even contains the vitamins A, B1, C, D, and E. So, you can actually help protect your body against heart disease and high blood pressure by simply enjoying some gourmet dark chocolate. The business grew from passion, not a desire to go into business or make money. “I never stop enjoying the look on peoples face when they take their first bit of our chocolate.” Whether you’re sold on the health benefits, want to woo a Valentine, you need to try this chocolate. Now available in San Felipe, at Playa de Oro Sundance market, Tattoo Rose Cafe, The Net or their website, or you can visit them in Campo Ocotillo at kilometer 182, San Felipe/Mexicali Highway.
