We spent most of the day in Talara trying to get some banking done. I apparently have lost my card and Doug couldn't remember his PIN for his card. At the bank today, they issued a new card to Doug, but forgot to give it to us. So, at this point, we have no way of accessing our account. We will go back to the bank Monday and see if we can sort things out. Then we will go to Paita to pay the duties on the container. Hopefullly once those duties are paid, they will transport the the container to our property and unload it. That will be such a milestone in this process of moving! Given hindsight, I don't think I would have done the move this way.
This afternoon when we visited the property, they had poured the walls for the second section of the pool. The forms are already up for the near wall, and they will have two more sections to go.
The workers have also poured the floor for the laundry room area. The service building is close to being finished. It is here where we will store our things from the container.
According to the architect, the kitchen/dining room/living room, and the
master suite will be finished by the end of April. We will see......
