Oh yes! The real estate deal from hell that isn't over yet. They still are refusing to release the escrow to me, even though they missed the closing date and cannot provide a denial letter from the lender.

Now, a couple just came to look at the house. I think they'll make an offer. I know it's really bad, but I swear, I don't want to move my stuff again right now. lol

I would lawyer up and start filing suits. Whether they're dropped in court or not, at least the banks will go into panic mode over having to pay their own lawyers.

Problem with that being few lawyers will undertake such an action on a contingency basis and it'll come out of her pocket at $250-?/hr. In the US justice is always determined by quality of counsel ($$$$$) and counsel's political connections.

Where have I been?

A lot of places. My favorite is, actually, close to home.

Abkhazia. Tiny country of 250,000 people and 8,432 km2 of land.

It sits in the Caucasus mountains and on the Black Sea Coast. Literally, across the border from Sochi.

Beatiful beaches, mountains, sea, clean, crisp air, mostly Soviet-era hotels lol And great partying. This is a Russians-only resort, pretty much, they know the way we like to enjoy our vacations. Basically, Abkhaz police stay out of the way unless someone's life is actually in imminent danger. Other than that, we can go as crazy as we wish.



Abkhaz wines, best in the world

Gagra

Gagra, Stalin's summer dacha (cottage), Abkhaz President lives here now

New Athos, Monastery of Simon the Cananite

Gagra

Near the capital, Sukhum, Russian corvette 'Novorossiysk' seen in the background, on patrol in Abkhaz waters

Independence Day in Sukhum


New Athos, Museum of Military Glory, commemorates Abkhaz victories against Georgian aggressors in the 1992-1993 War (their words, not mine)

Yeah. Quite a lot of it, actually. I am thinking of buying a cottage there right now, they are very cheap, for Russians or Abkhazs, only $50,000, maybe. (If you are from West, they may sell to you, but really expensive. If you are Georgian... well, going to Abkhazia at all may be a very bad idea in that case). For us its cheap though, and I already have my eyes on one, it is right on the beach. Owned by uncle of my Abkhaz friend Edik (owned is a loose word there, the uncle took it from some rich Georgian after the war, as a trophy).

Bump.

We had a friend from Estonia/Finland stay with us for a week and a half. She's on a month-long sojourn through the hemisphere. She bought a ticket to New York, and a ticket home from Brazil.

I'm way jealous and I've got the itch.

I'm going to Ireland in a month or so. We're going to stay in four cities over the course of 9 days. I'd imagine I'll have some good scenery pictures to post when I get back from that excursion.
