—Vida y tiempo—
When I started Residencias Los Jardines, I started writing a weekly newsletter -determined to tell all the good, bad, and the ugly. I knew some readers would be interested in the construction process. I expected others might be interested in the lifestyle of two people who had decided to live outside the box. For others, the adventures of Lita, the parrot and the cat took on an entertainment saga all its own.
Residencias Los Jardines is finished. We periodically have re-sales and rental availability. Some readers may be interested in this information.

Paradisus Condos / Rohrmoser
Each of the units consists of two bedrooms / two bathrooms, and a large living/dining/kitchen area. The floor plan of each of these units has eliminated the optional "den / office" divider. The result is a larger area offering more flexible furniture arrangements while still maintaining the option of including an office area. At 105m2 plus two parking spots each and storage locker, they offer a great opportunity for someone seeking views, security, central location, and first class, all round living...

Rentals -chipping away at vacancies: I have be able to lease three units in the past two weeks... 123, 112, 114. All at reduced prices so I guess our last of interest stemmed from our prices being too high. Now I have only two remaining... great units 106C and D. Two of the new tenants are Russian and one is Canadian prof. working at the Peace University. In addition, I was able to rent a vacant unit coming at Paradisus...
Los Jardines is getting ready for a shareholder election. Not a fun time here as jocking for support dominates the social structure. So far I have managed to sit on the sidelines -however, my options are really very discouraging. But doing anything will jeopardize my priority... peace and tranquility... but my assessment is that we have a significant problem facing us... I don't know what I am going to do... I feel I have pulled the sled far long enough... but... I see parallels to the US political arena before and what could follow -chaos- is perhaps not too far different...
News Items of the Week
1. Exports: Medical devices are growing the fastest and represent the better paying jobs... this is a good market niche for CR.â€‹
2. Caja birth control: I didn't know they provided it in any shape or form. I am surprise being a Catholic country and more surprised that I didn't know about it... I have asked people before because I was curious and always got a not available response... I think it isn't well marketed...â€‹
