House construction starts...Updated 6/18 ...slowly but surely. Hopefully it'll be done soon! The first time I visited Costa Rica I almost cried when I left. How could I leave this paradise I thought...well I went back down, found a beautiful, great wife, bought some land and finally we are starting construction. Here are some pictures of the land and whats happening so far. I'll try to keep updating the pictures as I get them. When the house is done we will move down there permanently and I will try to pursue a career doing private tours of the country. Hopefully it'll all work out! Here's a view from the road looking into our lot. It measures 15 meters (49.2') wide by 50 meters (164') long. It comes out to a little more than 1/5 of an acre Here is a view from the back of the lot to the road Here you can see they have measured out where the slab will be and are digging out the footers (I think that's the right word) It's pretty exciting seeing something happening on the land, we've had it for about 7 years now.
