Yes, I saw a lot of growth, they really made something out of nothing, but it is desert area and rains about 6 times a year, so the farming is limited. I didn't feel like there was structure to the place with a centered business area and separate residential areas. It feels patched up with businesses between housing. It feels that way probably because it is a patched area, they started with one piece of land and bought other patches as necessity grew. The housing is not ideal, but they did achieve the impossible with the little finances they had. I think the are doing a lot better planning for future extensions, which is good. But their main income comes from the tourism and pecan nut "export" . There is no minerals to take advantage of and I don't know how they will get financially stronger. They are building a University, which is great, they are starting with housing first, which is the best place to start. Yet I don't know how interesting the place will be to future students where there is not much entertainment. I see some potential, but I'm not overly excited, a lot of thinking-out-of-the-box is needed. That's the logistics. For morale, it was an absolute joy to be served in my language with food I can trust. Everyone has a job. And they work their butts off. I didn't feel anxious when my kids rode their bicycles in the street. Everyone waves to passersby, just like on our farms. It is something to be proud of. It achieved the impossible with everything against it.

Hello @RaRi ! Hier is hy!

2018-08-02 23:08:02 UTC  

@RaRi I suffer from insomnia , but I'm able to get by with little sleep as long as I get a good night's rest once or twice a week I'm good to go. I have small children, and have already reinserted a dummy twice while typing. Sleep is definitely not for people with small kids.

2018-08-02 23:09:05 UTC
