—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.
rentals & sales
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...

What Happened This Week
Weather: Normal... the winds this year have, so far, been lighter than normal... and that is a good thing.
Security Cameras: Still on my list of "to dos".
Doneste Administration: No response from owners. Will be putting together the meeting agenda for distribution.
Foreclosure: I wait.
Investment Business: We pulled the plug on this effort. After many delays and many concerns about the structure and the principle person himself, there was a culminating incident... which when added to our history, caused us to walk. We will continue to be open to other opportunities but with a different principle. I have to be assured that the award winner is capable of managing and has the personal integrity to convince me to participate. That was lacking in this case.
Valentine Day Power Outage: From 1:30 - 7:30... something happened... who knows what -when I was younger it could have been a great opportunity... now, just a great annoyance. We know people who had booked a nice dinner... well, that didn't happen... All our systems came back up... water, internet, security... after my phone had charged I began seeing all the inquiries about how long the power would be out... I hadn't a clue... but when it was back on, they knew exactly how long...
Garden Pictures: Attached are some garden pictures as of Feb. 1. Additional pictures will be added over the next newsletters:
News Items of the Week
1. Same story, different date... too much spending, not enough revenue, despite increases in revenue due to tax changes, the spending out strips the increase in taxes... The exchange rate remains fairly stable -around C 560 : $1. Fewer strikes but the teachers have just returned to work (??work ??) now the strikes will start with them...
