Photos finally!!!

* Warning: this is a looong post due to the many photos!!*

I struggled with this camera for some time but I finally made it! Here are some photos:

Above is the begining of the construction, the front part being built.

This was taken from the little hill behind the house, so you can see the power plant as a whole.

Now it is like this! The front part with walls partially completed, and Lucas & Spike, one of grandpa's dogs, half Chow-chow, hald Alsatian dog.

Above is my brother-in-law adding one more brick to the restroom wall. On the left is Lucas' bedroom.

Lucas with big grandpa inside his bedroom-to-be!

Spike, our favorite dog, and Lucas at the front door.

Inside the family room-to-be, these are little "Bebel" and her mom, Angeliana. They live at in-laws' house, and are lovely friends and helpers.

Lucas and Junior, rodrigo's brother, on the little path that leads to the house.

Rodrigo's coffee plantation, right in front of the kitchen's windown, still in "baby" mode. It will grow a powerful plantation, we hope!

And finally, the last photo (are you all still awaken?!): Lucas in front of grandpa's cattle's place.

Everything is lovely here. I do miss Rio's multi-faceted nature, with all the cultural things and practical stores so close at hand, but the peace we find here is priceless. I do want the house is finished asap, so we can move right away! I hope you are all well and in good health. Sorry if I can't reply to each comment full of wonderful energy & support, I hope you understand that time is so short these days, but you are all in my heart. Aileni, here are the photos you were avid for! :o)

Kisses with lots of love, Nydia.

What interesting photographs! And Nydia, I have to mention, your English is so beautiful. I love the words you choose, so cute.

Spike looks like a good dog! Lucas has himself a friend! And R's family are obviously such good hardworking people.

Hoping with all my heart that you are happy and that the coffee will grow wonderfully well. I am very excited to see a real coffee plantation!

I love the coffee plantation, too. That will be so lovely to look out the kitchen window and see it growing.

It's all so exciting! So good to hear from you-- miss you lots-- but so happy for you. XOXO

Wonderful - we are so happy for you. Lucas looks happy and healthy - country life will be good for him... all of you.
Reminds me of moving to the island.
Keep up the good work.

Nydia, these are lovely photos. They really give a wonderful picture of how things are going. I'm sure you miss the good bits of Rio, but this new adventure must be so exciting for you all.
Every blessing my love.

Absolutely amazing that you can see the house being built from scratch like this! How exciting for you and I'm glad that you are surrounded by peace and quiet, those are quite rare these days.

I'm sorry to hear Lucas is disappointed with the dreamboarding changes. I'm happy that I got to start this ritual and just wish I had the energy to keep it going but I don't. We can still make dreams come true, no matter what.

Big hug to you and Lucas!
