    Sleuthing in Spanish?

    I did a google search for Spanish classified ads, and found this site:
    http://sanantonio.elclasificado.com/ I'm sure there are other sites like this, has anyone here sleuthed them?

    Although my grasp of Spanish is almost non-existent, I would be glad to try to search some of these sites if I knew some of the keywords to look for. I can get them translated online, but I don't know if there are idioms or slang to look for. Is there anyone here that is bilingual that wants to do any sleuthing of Spanish websites? Is there a Spanish newspaper in San Antonio?

    I admit, I don't have a firm idea of what leads to follow on Spanish sites, so I'm posting this in hopes that maybe we can all brainstorm and see if we can find anything worthwhile. Maybe it is a bit like grasping at straws, but then again, maybe we can find some helpful information?

    (I've been out of the loop for awhile due to illness, so I apologize if I missed this topic somehow. I've been trying to catch up on everything and I haven't seen this mentioned, so I thought I would start a thread.)

    Great idea. I do not speak spanish so I'm guessing at keywords: adopciones, custodia de niņos, Clasificados, "san antonio"
