It did seem to be a little too easy....



Well we thought we had the answer to all our problems the other day when a very kind Brother came in from the outskirts of Cuenca to pick us up and take us to see the above property. It was just over 3 acres and had the most beautiful view you could every want and the makings of a little house on it - all for only $10K!!! We went straight to the lawyer and got things underway - we only had to wait for the papers of the seller to do a property search etc. Well today I rang him to ask how that was going and when could we pick them up - only to be told his neighbor had decided to buy the land - (must have seen us poking around the other day and decided to act) - so we are back to square one and I must admit I am a little downhearted. Not because I was so in love with this land and wanted to have it - but because it is so overwhelming to know where to start again.  One thing I do have to keep in mind is that it obviously IS possible to find land for the money we have - just wish it would land in our lap like this 1st one seemed to do. Oh well we are in Ecuador after all....
