Marcela contacted her Uncle yesterday, and it turns out that he hasn\’t even started work on the Nissan engine yet, he had toContinue reading “I can turn my hand to most things!”

Major Project in the Pipeline
Our neighbours have decided to sell, their finca is falling down, and they do not have the money to rebuild. This is the view we have at the moment over their finca And this is the view we have beyond To me this is something special, however we have been told that the prospective buyerContinue reading “Major Project in the Pipeline”
When we moved to the Finca, I bought a commercial Bandsaw, it was made locally, and although it has done it\’s job, it has always been a pain, however I adjust the settings, it will never cut in a straight line, I thought it was because there is no bottom blade guide, only a topContinue reading “Bandsaw Blades”

This morning I was awake before 4am, I think there is too much going on, my mind was buzzing, so much to Pépe\’s surprise I had him up and out early.

A late start this morning, we are not going to work at the Finca today, but I have got to go and buy another toilet and sink set, to go in \’my\’ toilet upstairs (the shower is being removed and that area turned into a store), I discovered yesterday that the cistern was damaged, unfortunatelyContinue reading “No work today!”
Yesterday, I headed off with Henri and John to Medellin, where John took us to an Electrical Supplier, which supposedly would save me a lot of cash, I am not sure it did, but there was some excitement, John had said this was one of the most dangerous areas of Medellin, and never to strayContinue reading “Hair Raising!”
