Construction has started, we have a new (used) car, and the weather here is blazingly hot and sunny all the time.
The mechanic who fixed up the car we have is said to be so good that when he repairs something, it works right up until the next time it breaks. I have personally tested the 1993 VW Kombi (I named it Mike, and I had a good reason for naming it that, but now I've forgotten what that reason was) with kids and cement loaded up ... and it works.
More stories, info, and pictures are on their way when we get back to the city, sometime this weekend or early next week.
Tchau for now,
