We Bought a New Condo

Dear Family and Friends,

Chuck has been after me to share this on our blog. About three months ago we bought a new condo. Why??? Well, all I can say is that I had an itch for a penthouse apartment. Chuck saw it as a good investment and indulged me.

This is the outside of our building. You can't actually see our apartment in this picture, but the yellow arrows point to our terrace.

Here are a couple of views of the terrace.

It is quite large and the views are spectacular.

Here is Chuck checking out the living area.

The bedrooms have large built in closets. These are still shrink wrapped.

At first we thought we would sell our present condo and move into the new one. But Chuck could not bring himself to leave the lovely private patio garden that he has put so much of his heart into. So, here we sit with two condos.

I love the location and have convinced Chuck for us to live in it for a few months. I think as he puts his heart and soul in a garden on the new terrace he might decide to move permanently. The condo is located in a wonderful neighborhood. We can walk one block to the grocery store, the bank, the pharmacy, ice cream parlors and there are tons of nice restaurants close by. The location is beyond perfect.

We have decided to furnish the new one and then ????? We'll see what's next.



  1. Nancy, I have been reading your blog over the last few months. My husband, Pat, and I are coming to visit in February to see if we might want to retire there. Maybe we can take a look at one of your condos--which ever one you decide to "rent". We would love to take a look when we are there around Feb. 23rd. Although it seems like how things are moving along, it may not be available then. Look forward to meeting you two, Sue Woods

  2. Sue and Pat, We will be glad to show you both our condos. But, regarding renting we will just have to wait and see where we end up.

  3. We had a penthouse in Quito and now a house in Cuenca. We miss the views. Congratulations, Mike

  4. Congrats on the new condo! Woo hoo! I think I know the building too :D I had no idea it was so spacious looking from the outside. And I saw the pic of the new dining set. Very nice. Have fun decorating!

    Hugs from Tailandia,
