We are a small import company interested in importing western boots, belts & hand bags from Mexico to Australia. Do you have any contacts in this area?

Also we are planning a buying trip to Leon in mid August through mid October. We would like to rent a furnished apartment for that period. Do you know of any real estate agents we could work through?

Hi Lee –

Came across your webiste by accident – very interesting and good observations. I ave been in GTO since ’99 and mas o menios could [if I did] offer similar observations: maybe a paraphrase of –op/Look/Listen–and then entry into the culture opens. We [ my Thai wife and I] are in Leon usually once a week [to visit Thai/Chilean friends and do our non-GTO shopping] Perhaps our paths can cross.
