Susi and me in Santa Elena, Yucatán, Mexico in March. The past five months have been a whirlwind. One of the casualties has been this blog. I can't say that I am certain I will continue forever, but as long as there is work being done on the house I will make occasional posts. The fact that there haven't been any posts is indicative of the pace that work has been progressing here. Since we

...this sunny Sunday afternoon. He really is backed up with work as described before, and although he would and will do the foundations if necessary, it would really help him out if Willie could do the work.<br /><br />I sent Janne's contact [...]
