Christmas has come early!
At 9.30am I received a phone call from the lorry driver, asking for directions, to bring my boxes which had come from Spain, not having a clue, and Marcela being out at a meeting, I went to the Porters Lodge, and he willingly agreed to help me, so directions given, it was a waiting game.Continue reading “Christmas has come early!”
Today has been another hectic one, we were up \’early\’ and had to go and meet a Client of Marcela\’s, while she was at the meeting, I had a wander.

This week has been relatively quiet, being Semana Santa (Easter) and everyone here on holiday, so not a lot to report.

It has been typical winter here, 22-25ºC with thunder storms! so otherContinue reading “Easter”

This morning, Marcela was on the phone to the Immigration Dept. again, they confirmed that my temporary Cedula / Residency Card, had arrived in Medellin, so this afternoon we went over to fetch it, apparently I will receive the plastic card in June, and it has to be renewed in December!!! Now I can openContinue reading “Got it…!!”
Points to Ponder
This morning we headed into town, and first went to the Dentist, and informed them that I had decided to just have an extraction, and arrange for a refund on the payment made, after trying to pursuade me to have the other treatment, they agreed, and I have an appointment on Saturday, to have theContinue reading “Points to Ponder”
Friday, and more contact from the Shipping Agent, for once someone is trying to save me some money, and I was asked to resubmit an Inventory and reduce the value of my belongings considerably, apparently this was agreed with Customs, because although I had declared 2nd hand value, it was a value used for aContinue reading “Nothing Exciting!”
