Updating at long last!
Life has moved on considerably. The court cases with Vasko Prorocic are rumbling on; but we are talking about a negotiated out-of-court settlement. We will see.
Anke has made enormous strides in both preparing what was Le Beton (the original concrete structure on the site) into a highly habitable apartment (Le Studio!), and in marketing it. We are now listed on booking.com; airbnb and Owners Direct. Still to get bookings, and then guest comments; difficult to get the first without the second, so somewhat of a Catch 22 situation.
Garden-building has taken a backseat as it is too hot (over 30) to work outside. I need to re-model the Westgarten, which involves building a stone terrace wall and levelling earth. Weeding the existing garden areas is a priority as the tomatoes in particular are getting overgrown with grass and other weeds.
