.. Time for an Update.

I left the wind farm project in Taiwan after closing my site and workplace in the 5th year and itwill be a change from rat race to "permie"

As you could follow in the past, while I made the coin in my offshore job my wife and our long year house maid prepared each other and together when ordered seeds and small trees came..

Now it's time to get a life (on) with our land.

The 2nd rain season sets in and we can only say, that we still had water in abundance and all fish survived the heat wave..
Our house has got its solid foundation and now the mud bricks (they are much harder than cinderblocks) walls getting erected.
