Land baron

8AM - Land baron!
Would you like to know a little about the land that I am buying? It is a large lot. 1,200 square meters! The lot comes with hooked up water, electricity and sewer connection. There is a casita here [a small house]. I am paying my friend Richard Newland 300,000 pesos for the land [$25,000US].

4PM - Figuring how to transfer money
Today I drove to the City of Queretaro with my friends, Pete and Jimena.  The object of this trip was to setup an account at Actinver/Lloyds, an investment bank.  What I wish to do is to transfer funds to Actinver which will be used to purchase the land and build a small home.

However!  I have not been able to figure out how to transfer money to where I want it to go!  I am sure there is a way to do this.  I will have to get help in figuring out the process.

6PM - Cleaning up the lot
Today a 16 year old young man named Salvador worked for three hours to clean up the weeds and trash that are on this lot.  Salvador's work has made a difference.  There is now a clear space all around MsTioga!
