The weather of late here in Puerto has been nothing short of spectacular – it just does not get any better. We are thinking of the people on the East Coast of the United States and Canada who are submerged in snow. This morning it is in the mid 70’s here with sunny skies and a gentle breeze – ahhh!
Last week was action packed. We spent another day working on getting our Residente Permanente Mexican visas. Reports since we last Blogged on this are the cards are starting to appear. Our friend Debbi in Merida actually has her card in hand – amazing. And Charlie has his Residente Temporal card in hand as well. Good new!
We expect our cards to appear soon – perhaps within days.
We had several days of Beach Bodega construction. Nothing like some hard labor to get your mind off Mexican red tape details.
Below is where we are at now. My brother-in-law and I spent two days putting on the roof – Mexican clay tiles. We have some sorting and some cementing to do up there as well as some patching etc. But you get the idea.
We have spent $700.00 U.S. approximated to date. The door is expected to be around $200.00. So our bodega is coming in on budget ($1000. U.S. total).
I have not mentioned, but under the current new circumstances I will reveal I am working on a book about buying property in Mexico which will not be as dry as it sounds – it is after all quite an adventure. At the moment my brother-in-law and Ethel have scoped out a prime property just down the road from us. We will supply details as they emerge.
And there was a Gay Pride Parade as well as Carnival!
The Carnival ended Sunday – lots of activity still going on down here in our side of Paradise – wish you were here (well some of you any way!). Stay Tuned.
