Today Thomas is heading south to go to the tiny city of Tranquillo where they have bought some land and plan to build a house someday. The land needs some serious leveling and landscaping first and doing that is his current task. They own a big shipping container that they brought from Germany with all their stuff in it (including a campervan which they plan on parking down on this plot of land) that they are going to put there. But, they have to get the land ready before they move it. So he has a big job ahead of him...
I let Thomas and Sandra know of my plans to move back north. I feel bad because I am leaving them with a few weeks of no extra help, but they understand my reasons and aren't giving me too much crap for it :) We had planned for another girl to come work here who is currently working in a hostel in Argentina, but she has been delayed a few weeks due to her replacement being late. Otherwise, she would have arrived before I would be leaving and it would have been perfect. Darn it! Life will figure itself out though. Solutions always present themselves in time.
And....*drumroll please*......plane ticket to Santiago is purchased!
