Thanks. It's wonderful living here. :D It's a bit more than half finished, only one 4-roomed house left to build with kitchen, one and a half bathrooms, basement, upstairs balcony, swimming pool ......
Actually the more I postpone and the more I read other people's building stories, the more I suffer from cold feet. :lol:

Some photos of the available fruits in the garden. There are also vegetables such as beans, tomatoes, onions, aubergines, mint, basil, chillies .... and others I don't even recognise.

Mangoes:

It's not my thumb that's green and you're lucky I could even identify these. I can distinguish my Proteas from my Tulips but that's about it.
I encourage Nop the housekeeper / gardener on a monthly basis .... on payday. :lol:
