Finished House in Nicaragua

Finally even the doors and windows were finished and installed. I was proud of the house, but the truth is that by this time I already had the property listed for sale.  It had taken me one year to build the house - during which time I had also planted dozens of crops, over ten thousand trees, fixed another house, repaired the well, entertained visitors.  But I had already decided by this time that the Nicaraguan environment was not conducive to even breaking even financially, or to being sane, and I had already decided to sell the big farm and downsize to a smaller project I could manage on my own.  On average over the year I had employed about fifteen people, and I had paid all of them personally in cash every Saturday.  Less than a month after I had listed the property for sale, I was assaulted by two cowards with machetes right outside this house in the evening while eating popcorn.  No respect for a man's dinner time in Nicaragua, and no respect for even offering an honest one-on-one fight in the daylight.
