Last time I was here, I was really somewhat lazy about reporting on some great advances that we made. The contract for using Dona Maria’s land for back of house was agreed in essence, I met Carlos Augusto Bricena who owns one of the TV stations here and he and his lovely wife came over and visited the Island, seeing the potential and loving it which delighted me. He also reintroduced me to Raoul Lacayo who owns land and hot springs across the lake from me and I spent a gorgeous couple of hours exploring with him. It will be a fantastic trip for my guests. In fact, the tourist board here have just conceived of a number of trips round the volcano and lake that will suit me down to the ground. All this and a beach party at Popoyo – bloody marvellous!
