Yesterday, we had a visit from our friend and Estate Agent, Omar, he, Jaime and I went down the garden to look at the animal burrows, and there was fresh activity, which was interesting. On the way down they spotted a plant, which I had no idea as to what it was, they informed meContinue reading “Pot of Gold?”

End of Yet Another Chapter
We had a lovely eight days away in the Dominican Republic, the Resort ( I would not describe it as a Hotel, as it is laid out in buildings over a large area) was up to scratch and more, contrary to many of the reviews we had read. We arrived home on Monday evening, andContinue reading “End of Yet Another Chapter”
Another week has gone by, not a lot to show for it, my days have been mucked up to a degree, because without a car, I have been running Marcela from home to Niquia, which is on our side of Bello, and then she has caught the bus to work, it was the only wayContinue reading “Motorcycle Taxi”
Time to Look for Another Car?
Yesterday morning, I was checking the levels in the Nissan X-Trail, when I found oil in the radiator, but no sign of water / refrigerant in the Oil, that put paid to Marcela going to work, which thanks to the Local Authorities had already been mucked up, more on that later. So the car endedContinue reading “Time to Look for Another Car?”
Yesterday morning was my last duty as a moto taxi for a while, as we collected the car in the afternoon, but true to form my luck ran out, as we were driving down the mountain I had just entered this part of the road works, or should I say, non-roadworks, when a pick-up cameContinue reading “Ouch!”
Bye Bye Baby!
Yesterday, I finally said good bye to my Montero with some sadness, yes over the last four years she has cost me some money, but considering she was 23 years old, I had developed an affection for her…don\’t tell Marcela! I went over to the shop at 9am, and met with the buyer and hisContinue reading “Bye Bye Baby!”
No Peace for The Wicked
Yesterday morning we spent car hunting, the first was in the depths of a Mall multi-storey car park in Medellin, it turned out the seller ran a business from there, and advertised as a private seller, which put us on the back foot to start with. It was a 2010 Nissan X-Trail 2.2 TD, whichContinue reading “No Peace for The Wicked”
The last few days have been mundane, just doing household chores. On Tuesday I had to return to the Motorcycle shop to sign forms so they could complete the transfer, as a result of which, all being well, I am going to Medellin with Marcela this morning to collect the bike, but it looks asContinue reading “Short Update”
Back in The Land of The Living
Monday and Tuesday, I spent the greater part of that 48 hours either on my knees on sitting in the bathroom, no need to say more… I thought I was dying, it must have been some virus I picked up from somewhere, because I hadn\’t eaten anything out of the ordinary. Yesterday I spent buildingContinue reading “Back in The Land of The Living”
Up at 5am this morning, dogs walked and chores done, then out of the house for 6.30am, I had a skin cancer check-up in El Poblado, Medellin at 8.20am, but you have to be there 20 minutes prior. The traffic was heavy, but flowing, so I ended up arriving an extra 20 minutes early, butContinue reading “More Medicals!”
