which "C"...

In Chile, when the old, crazy, and infirm are institutionalized and set out in a wheelchair on the patio to drool all over each other they are referred to as “locos de patio”. This is where we keep our locos de patio on the All Chile Forum.

we recently faced a dilemma...
:?:

return to western so-am <chile~peru~ecuador>...
or buy a sweet 3/4 acre piece of rural land here and build a small~humble domicile???
<btw - small is beautiful --- less is more>

not to keep any allchileans in suspense...
the concept of a long-sought home won out...
any allchileans may wish a wee perspective here...

3000 sq.m. of land w/many mature trees... <coconut, mango, papaya, cashew, guava, banana...>
fresh seafood + fresh fruit/veggies every day at local markets
nice mountain views, a clean river to swim and paddle just 15 minutes away...
a few unspoiled, undeveloped tropical islands maybe half a day away...

a 20m deep bore well, time-tested and proven...
power easy to hook-up and reliable - 22 cents /kwh <maybe $1/day>
unlimited 3g internet for about 66 cents/day...
most important - 24 beer for $11...!

prices fwiw - fyi --- $5.50 a sq.m. for the land...
best guesstimates for a 60 sq.m. raised house, surrounded by 60 sq.m. covered deck space...
ok, ok, budget for both the land and house - turn key and live - mas o menos $45k...?

salud y suerte to any/all - re turning dreams~concepts to plans~reality...


:idea:
g~j,

Congratulations on taking this decision to build your 'dream' home in Cambodia. I wish you continued good fortune.

salud y suerte
