Gordon stands on a lot at the edge of town. He surveys the view of town and the bay of San Juan del Sur. A cool breeze comes off the surrounding hills. The plot of land isn’t large, but plenty big enough to build the oasis him and Elisha have talked about.
This is a no brainer. The location is good. The view is good. The price is right. And the investment potential? Amazing! Done deal. Let’s go to the lawyer’s office.
Elisha stands next to Gordon. Off in the distance she hears roosters crowing. A dog barks loudly in protest to the intrusion. The barrio is a little rough around the edges; far from picturesque. The view of town and the bay is partially blocked by a tree in the neighbor’s yard.
I don’t know. Am I ready to live with the noise and hustle in-town living brings? Do I really want to start from scratch and go through the process of building a home in a third world country? I need to give this some serious thought!
Gordon was ready. Elisha gave it some serious thought. And on February 10, 2017 (with good friends and champagne) they toasted to buying land in San Juan del Sur, Nicaragua!
