In his quest to find a place of solace, there were many ups and possible downs.
Initially there had to be upfront capital, and then learning about surprise Central American taxes, overcoming a language barrier... while separated by thousands of miles.
Finally, he put it to plan. Enter, F-I-R-E: Financial Independence, Retire Early. Once that was in place, all that's needed from there was just a steady stream of execution.
Step by step, bit by bit, we went to work. Once the donkeys helped carve out rocks from the volcano, we laid the materials, built it up and after dressing it up, now we're in paradise, baby. First floor includes multi-unit bathrooms, electricity, warm showers and the best view in the world from the back porch - WiFi and kitchen included. Eventually the 2nd (and 3rd) floor will afford some more space to live and have private spaces for guests simultaneously. I shall call it "Roca de Durazno".
