On Monday, I took the Montero to Bello and left it with the Mechanic as planned, then went with Marcela to the shop, where, I then borrowed her car for the morning, and headed into the City, to a place that sells cardboard boxes, it was worth the trip, by going there, I bought them at $5664 COP (£1.43) each, as opposed to buying them on MercadoLibre (Colombia\’s eBay) for $12900 COP (£3.26) each, I bought thirty, they are now stored in the workshop, whilst waiting for a buyer for the house. From there I went to Makro, and stocked up whilst I was passing.
It was then time to head back to the shop to collect Marcela, I arrived about 40 minutes before she was due to finish, but the Mother-in-law arrived early, and told her to leave.
Tuesday morning, a Comisionista came to the house about 8.45am, and took photos and video, to place both on his site, and on social media, shortly afterwards, we had a call from another Comisionista to say he wanted to bring a couple to view the house that afternoon, so it was just as well everything had been spruced up for the photo session. Marcela was worried, because she had to work, and wanted to be here, but I persuaded her that viewing, even with me, was better than cancelling, and risking losing a sale. However the couple were so poker faced, it was hard to tell what they were thinking, my impression, is that they are not interested, if they are it will be a big surprise, but to date we have had no feedback.
Tuesday night, I had a call from the Mechanic, to say the work was completed on the Montero, therefore I arranged to go for it the following morning.
