Fresh Food at Your Doorstep

You have to love fresh food delivered to your door.

Finding our Paradise in South America

Look what I bought off a truck for $2.50 a pound? Yes, you got it right, it is two beautiful pork tenderloins.

I first browned them and then cooked them up with seco seasoning, chopped onions, garlic, tomatoes, potatoes, carrots, hot peppers and we enjoyed it for dinner last evening with a good amount of leftovers for another meal.

Home construction from a distant distance, reblogged from http://www.stevenwwatkins.com

Steve Watkins Media

It took a few weeks to realistically conceive how construction of a home could be managed from another continent 5,000 miles from the building site. But with the aid of electronic media … email, interconnected blogs, skype, and international bank wire transfers, it’s doable.

We’re having fun watching the weekly photos come in that detail the construction of our la pequena casa azul en la colina in Puerto Cayo, Ecuador. Our next visit to see the finished product will be December 21 to January 1 and we can hardly wait.

These are the most recent construction photos sent our way on Monday. This home, which sits on an elevated hill overlooking miles of South Pacific coast, will have marble floors, the finest wood finishes and beautiful Latin American craftsmanship for between $45 and $50 per square foot.

Currently, we’re in discussions with International Livingmagazine to have this home and our blogging adventures…

Beautiful Photo. It actually took me a minute to figure out what it was…

Upward and Onward at Latitude One

August 8, 2012

We wondered to ourselves many times if it would really be possible to build a home while we were 5,000 miles away. The photos show it can be done. We’re getting updates about twice a week now and are several weeks ahead of schedule. Looking forward to seeing a finished work when we make our way South this December.

If you’re intrigued by the possibilities Ecuador has to offer, and have a love for adventure, I’d encourage you to click on the sidebar links to www.lossuenosdelmar.net and/or www.laspalmasecuador.com. Gary and April Scarborough would be glad to show you more.
