Our apartment complex, Grand Life, has a beautiful pool area. Problem is…it’s not complete! When we arrived in April they were under construction. Maybe renovation or re-construction is the better word because I guess it was at the same stage back in December as it was in June after they have been at it a few months. For some reason they had to tear out a lot of things…they even took out the hot tub and sauna area in a room that is close to the pool. Some people speculate there was problems with the pipes… I don’t know but either way…it has been a mess.
Organizers, the group that is responsible for finding us housing here, in the limited furnished housing market, said that the pool was expected to be finished end of June/July.
They have been making good progress…really they have but then this week they started tearing out more tile that they just put in, and started ripping out sod and…what a mess!!!
There were some important looking people that stopped by and were taking pictures and it seems like there has been a push ever since. There is a party here tonight, hosted by Grand Life, not sure if we’ll go yet ( most of the English speaking tenants are away this weekend)…I may just take pics from my balcony. Maybe that was why they pushed so hard BUT…in the end it is still not ready! Closer…but still not ready. Maybe by the end of August or September. I was really thinking and hoping that it would be ready for when James comes. August seemed so far away back in April, but in 2 weeks James will be in Brazil! We’ll see…
Like I said…It’s coming! It will be an exciting day when they actually start filling it with water. It is a really good thing it’s winter here and not too warm. So in the meantime, we’ll keep our eye on things from our vantage point on our balcony!
Have a good Saturday!
